Posted on 11/05/2013 9:08:54 PM PST by SaveOurRepublicFromTyranny
The Virginia gubernatorial race was a huge victory for the Tea Party movement. Wait a minute! Democrat McAuliffe won, you say. How could this be a victory for the Tea Party movement and a positive precursor for the 2014 mid-terms? Heres how:

Sarvis was the Libertarian candidate. Kindly get your capitalization right.
In terms of his positions, he was basically a liberal Democrat. The Donks installed him in the race in hopes the Libertarian brand would peel off enough idiot GOP voters to swing the race to McAuliffe. It worked, albeit with a much thinner margin than they hoped.
You sure seem concerned about his party purity, which he passed of course.
Remember that libertarians don’t always get pure candidates, once, republican Ron Paul ran as a libertarian, but he wasn’t pro-abortion, yet they nominated him.
Why would the purity of a pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda, pro/lefty social positions party, so concern you?
Libertarians are libertarians, the party perfectly represents the libertarian movements philosophy and politics and agenda.
Welcome libturd troll. Why the recent join.
//Not even worth posting an img link
Interesting. So, the Libertarian Party stands for government-required GPS tracking systems in your car? As Sarvis favored? (For those of you in Rio Linda, that's the antithesis of libertarian philosophy.)
But ansel12 says so, so it must be true! He wants it to be true! It's all he posts about! It has true or his world-view is FUBARed!
Not interesting at all, I didn’t say anything about each individual candidate being perfectly libertarian, remember that even Ron Paul was anti-abortion, yet the libertarians still nominated him.
Try not to turn personally nasty if you have any self control.
Nope. Krispy Kreme's role is the same role played by McCain to W in 2000, Romney to McCain in 2008 and Santorum to Romney in 2012. Krispy Kreme will supplant Christian Conservative Santorum to be destroyed by none other than Jeb Bush brought in to save the GOP from the divisive Tea-Party attack on Party Standard Bearer Chris Christie. If Jeb loses in 2016; Christie can be the nominee in 2020.
You heard it here first.
*****The 0bamaCare factor has only just begun. By next year people will be thinking more about nooses and pitchforks than elections. And they will vote.*****
This is our mission: To use every outlet available to emphasize the damage that Obamacare is doing to our neighbors.
Obamacare is so bad that we may even be able to generously rub liberals nose in the stench and have the libs still vote conservative because of the huge hit to their pocketbook. Choose wisely my friend.
If you think Krispy Kreme was a victory you really are sick.
“Bring out da BOOM!!!”
Post of the thread award OP!!!
Try not to turn personally nasty if you have any self control.
You seem to have an obsession about libertarians, even to the extent that you would misidentify the Sarvis kid as the genuine article. (Kuccinelli is a far better approximation of a libertarian. But he keeps the good parts while leaving out the bad.)
You resemble certain Freepers who have a thing about Mormons. Or the drooling birfers, who have recently acquired a bad odor over their mindless 17th century consistency about the definition of Natural Born.
Hiding what’s coming will not be possible.
Lots of purists around here have made it plain Libertarians aren’t welcome.
It will be up to Republican candidates to take advantage of the 0bamaCare debacle. We’re not going to have to do anything to inform the American people though. Reality is going to shove us to the side and deliver the message to them swinging baseball bats with both hands.
To #8> As you speak, your wishes are happening. GOP Rinos are going to be purged from key positions and told to either join the real conservatives are get the hell out of Dodge.
The almost total lack of GOP money for Cuccinelli helped cost him the election to a nazi-like thug and a well-funded Democratic lock-step political propaganda and ground-pounding machine.
The real “money” people in the US, the hated “1 percenters” are actually the Democrats. They have more money than the Treasury and use it without hesitation or regard for costs.
When the GOP gets off its ass and realizes this, then they will become a viable organization again. Every Tea Party supporter I know is refusing to send the GOP one “red cent”.
As the national congressional races start in ernst real soon, the GOP is going to face an internal revolt which may make them a footnote in political history.
RINOs are being put on notice that they are going to end up on two lists: “The endangered species list” and the “Endangered feces list”.
If it takes a defection of the Tea Party movement from supporting some RINOS, even to the point of allowing the Democrats to win a few House seats, so be it. The GOP is either going to get with the program or get thrown out of the movement and a lot of cushy jobs with undeserved high salaries are going to disappear.
If the Tea Party Republicans withdraw from the GOP to become Independents, then the GOP will lose control of the House and Boner will finally be out of a job. Their only alternative to keeping power would be to keep the TP congressmen and women in the fold by sharing power and developing real aggressive political policies and tactics.
The GOP RINOS today are fighting like the Russian reserve forces sent into both Norway during WW2 and Afghanistan early in the war. Both got nearly wiped out by the resistance in each country.
It is time that they adopted real guerrilla warfare style tactics, striking selected targets, then pulling back until the next target comes along. Hit a major target with everything and everyone you’ve got.
Propaganda - forget information. Information didn’t do much for Cuccinelli against Communist-styled propaganda and disinformation, as well as plain old lies.
We need hard-hitting billboards, posters, slogans, CARTOONS, and columns, 24/7, in every media and medium possible.
Call Obama and his marxist minions “LIARS”, not people who “misspoke” (Megan Kelley, Bill O’Reilly, Charles Krauthammer, George Will). People understand “LIAR”, not “misspoken”.
Hammer this home to the public. Never let them go away or get away unchallenged. One sign can wreck their day, and I’m all for that.
Forget Christie. He’s not reliable or he would have been down here with Cuc and 2 dozen donuts. A great photo-op that could have made Cuccinelli the governor. But no, Christie stayed with the RINOS and sacrificed a brave fighter, just as William Wallace was sacrificed/betrayed by his supposed friends.
The key to all this is ORGANIZATION and ORGANIZING - pounding the streets with your message, even into, and esp. into, Democratic areas. Hit them where they live, with real information, facts, fliers, etc.
Obamacare is one of our greatest weapons to use against the Democrats. So is Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS scandal, etc. but most of the low-education Democrat voters know little or nothing about them, and definitely not in-depth.
That is what our job is, to provide them with in-depth information that affects them directly, and others indirectly.
It’s time to charge, not retreat, once we are organized and prepared. And time is running out.
Just last week, WTOP all news radio station said that McAwful would DEFINITELY win by double digits.
Now it’s down to 1%, with 97% of precincts reporting.
It’s Tea Party time.
LOL, yeah, the actual libertarian candidate is the fake, and the pro-life, anti-libertarian, social conservative republican is more of the libertarian.
Sarvis is without question the actual libertarian, and he is pro-abortion, pro-gay, and pro-states rights on gas tax issues. Cuccinelli is what you people call a statist, a conservative, an anti-liberty guy.
Conservatives will not go along with the radical leftist, pro-abortion, pro-gay, pro-immigration, pro-drugs, porn, hookers, weak military agenda of libertarianism, that somehow surprises you?
You think conservatives should have supported the libertarian instead of the conservative?
So don’t bitch about losing Libertarian votes.
Nope. Ron Paul is the real libertarian, and the real conservative, even though he stayed in the GOP for 2012.
****Reality is going to shove us to the side****
I have seen how easily the media can bark at the trained seals that are churned out of the “educational” institutions to know that that is a risky bet. Double down now and reap the rewards, or go down tryin’.
That is a pretty odd answer, so you do expect conservatives to go along with the radical leftist, pro-abortion, pro-gay, pro-immigration, pro-drugs, porn, hookers, weak military agenda of libertarianism?
You do think conservatives should have supported the libertarian instead of the conservative?
Well, one is a retired republican, the other is a fighting libertarian politician.
You can call both of them libertarians if you want to, but you cannot accurately say that the real life libertarian politician is not one, just because you are not perfectly aligned with him and his and his party’s state politics for Virginia.
Reality is going to drag the MSM kicking and screaming to the truth but drag it it will.
Look, there was whining about how cuccinelli lost by 20000 votes when the libertarian got 160k. Do you expect libertarians to vote for a conservative when you deride and mock them and it plain you don’t want them?
Amen to nooses and pitchforks. If things keep improving for the Tea Party and defunding GOP I may be able to loosen the noose around my neck and get the pitchfork out of my ass.
Ron Paul is the current exemplar of libertarianism in America.
Sarvis is the libertarian nominee for Governor of Virginia.
Sarvis was a Democrat stalking horse who is not remotely libertarian.
>> bullshit. a loss is a loss. period. say it. we lost. period.
>> Any this is a moral victory talk is loser talk.
The beatings will continue until morale improves...
I expect Virginian libertarians to vote as they wish, regardless of my posts, which you seem to think decided the vote of thousands of them.
Do you expect conservatives to go along with the radical leftist, pro-abortion, pro-gay, pro-immigration, pro-drugs, porn, hookers, weak military agenda of libertarianism, and fawn over them?
Sarvis was the actual nominee of what appears to be your party judging by you anger about his party purity, and while Ron Paul isn’t much respected here, he sure has a fan in you, that much I can see.
Get used to it until the GOP moves to the right.
The state of Sarvis's "party purity" was well-established and apparent to all, except for morons too dumb to reside in Rio Linda.
while Ron Paul isnt much respected here, he sure has a fan in you, that much I can see
I voted for Gingrich in the primary and the miserable Mittens in the general.
But with what parts of Ron Paul's speech of the other night do you disagree?
I feel the same way.
I feel I was sold for a bunch of lies. Being owned may sit well with some people.
And I have a sneaking suspicion that many KNOW it’s all lies and cheer it on. It’s a collectively suicidal blood sport.
And it ‘bout makes my head explode that women will vote for any servitude, will vote to have medical treatment denied to their existing seriously ill children, on the promise somebody else will be made to pay for their abortions and birth control pills.
Don’t even get me started on my greed and jealousy rant.
And I, as the minority, am getting dragged along. Where is my protection as a minority in this country?
I’m sick and very angry.
Like most here, I don’t care for the little self aggrandizing, cult leader, but as far as the libertarian candidate in Virginia, you seem determined to dismiss the actual libertarians of that state.
You seem stuck on your own personal view, just as you seem stuck on the retired Ron Paul, it is like a visit to the past reading your fever for the man.
Virginia libertarians clearly disagree with you, and they are the boots on the ground.
LOL, “moves right”? To stop you and yours from supporting the pro-abortion, pro-gay libertarian?
The radical leftist, pro-abortion, pro-gay, pro-immigration, pro-drugs, porn, hookers, weak military agenda of libertarianism, isn’t moving right.
Sorry, but by who? Not a criminal enterprise DOJ. Not by a Rat Virginia AG. For Democrat's, crime usually pays.
Democrat’s = Democrats.
Gee maybe if conservatives stopped calling names and tried to get libertarians to see they support smaller government and less intrusive government maybe some of them will actually vote in a way that helps both groups. Until then expect to keep loosing.
It does not matter who the Libertarian party candidate is. No Libertarian party candidate is ever going go win. It only matters who the GOP candidate is. As long as they keep nominating non-conservatives they will keep losing - except perhaps in New England.
Oh and BTW, libertarianism is not defined by anti-military, pro-gay, or pro-abortion. Libertarianism is anti-government. Period.
Agree.. horseshoes, hand grenades etc. The liberal disease is spreading.
Lost by 2 points, outspent 10 to 1.
I blame the RNC...and other party officials.
The Tea Party, nearly single handedly, brought Ken to within 2 points. The national party? How enthusiastic was the NATIONAL party for our man?
I agree with you and the article. Cooch damn near pulled this off with the deck horribly stacked against him by (1) outside Dem money, (2) a third-party plant, and (iii) no support whatsoever from GOP-e. Many people here in VA thought it was going to be a loss of historic proportions. Also, most of the Republicans in hotly contested delegate races won.
Exactly! NEVER EVER send money to the RNC. Always contribute directly to the candidates.
Thus my double down comment. Use every avenue to be a part of the Tsunami of information that brings down Obamacare. We are in the fight of our lives to save this Republic with the gift of Thor’s hammer if we coalesce into a force that wants to just not have people like these assh*oles in charge. They have shown their intent and are not backing down.
I’m from New Jersey, and in my wildest dreams a few years ago I never would have imagined a scenario where the U.S. entered 2014 with a Republican governor in New Jersey.
I thought Christie won?
It looks like the “Bush is a genius for ONCE AGAIN giving in to the democrats” crowd from 2002 has infected the tea party.
“Get used to it until the GOP moves to the right”
Agreed, but Sarvis wouldn’t have even been on the ballot had it not been for democratic paid petitioners.
My prediction is the GOP castrati will now whine that conservatives need to become more “moderate,” when - in reality - the majority of Virginians are conservative.
To hell with the GOP.
