  • The Rule: First Candidate to 1,237 Wins

    Cruz’s true colors were also revealed when he began campaigning as the only alternative to Donald Trump. That showed he was courting the establishment vote as opposed to the outsider Ted.

    There’s only one candidate who has remained true to his original tack and ‘Make America Great Again’ is his campaign slogan. He has risen in the face of tremendous opposition from all the right people. The Republican voter has indicated repeatedly their preference for this man while the establishment types have sought to deny him the nomination at all costs.

    Go Donald!!!

    “Next lets realize that the campaign Ted Cruz is running is that of a weak candidate who a majority of republican voters reject. On April 26th Cruz hits the mathematical wall and he well knows it. His is a campaign of desperation fueled by naked ambition. There is no dirty trick he will not stoop to in an effort to obtain the GOP nomination no matter the futility of it.”

    Cruz crossed the line and couldn’t hide his unprincipled ambition when he joined the crowd and blamed Donald Trump’s rhetoric for the violence in Chicago. He had an opportunity to stand on principle but he chose to kick Trump in the shims instead. No principled conservative would parrot the Left’s mantra against a Republican.

    Trump has made very strong campaign promises. You can believe them or not. I judge him to be a man who will keep his promises. I believe him. He’ll have a hard time with credibility if starts walking back on his promises. Why? He’s a very proud man of his word and his ego won’t allow that.

    There’s so much more to this game than saying you believe in conservative principles.

    Skill is the ability to get your way when the tide is going against you. This week alone Trump stood against the Pope and George W, a former president, and he WON both encounters!! He went on to win all but one district in South Carolina and even took the “evangelical” vote away from Cruz!!!

    He has skill that the others only wish they had. You can have the right ‘conservative’ thoughts without skill and you accomplish NADA!

    “I’d say we have a good head of steam right now, if we can find someone to carry the message, that we can’t keep borrowing 40 cents of every dollar we spend.”

    You dream of a red hot conservative TP’er winning a national election with the current demographics? and the way things are headed?

    And what segment is having babies at the fastest clip?
    And from what segment are these 43% of unwed mothers?

    I can’t say I know just what to do but the future belongs to the majority and they are concentrated in the major population centers. We of the traditional mindset are fast slipping back in numbers, have you noticed? The next generation isn’t like us at all!

    We need to teach better values, to win their hearts and minds back to morality and the value of personal responsibility.

    But right now we and our values are on our way out! White males are being equated with the devil, a nasty lie that denigrates the white male’s historic contribution in building and running this Country based simply on gender and race.

    This needs to be challenged. Identity politics has become accepted as true. It is the opposite of the American dream of a color blind society rewarding people for their accomplishment. Identity politics is evil and bases all judgments on a shallow metric of outward appearances.

    We’re all frustrated but let’s face it, red hot anything is only a sliver of the electorate. And the demographics of the Country certainly seem to be changing AWAY from us. Without a coalition of similar interests we’ll not carry a national election by ourselves.

    “Historically, third parties have helped the two main parties win elections.”

    Bingo!
    Bush won Florida in 2000 by 537 votes while 97,488 voted for third party Nader and so the election went to George not Gore.

    Clinton won the 1992 election with only 43% of the vote, HW Bush lost with 37% but the little guy from TX siphoned off 19%.

    If there are three candidates running then the top two vote getters should face each other in a runnoff. That way the winner has the final majority margin.

    If not the likely 2nd choice for a larger margin ends up being the President.

    Winning the presidency with 43% means 57% didn’t want you.

    “You can biatch and moan about how the GOP-e conspired against you personally, but the fact remains that your candidate did not generate the votes. That’s how it works.”

    That IS how it works. It’s called a primary. The candidates went head to head, toe to toe. The one with the most votes eventually won. Two of my preferred candidates did not generate sufficient votes. Does that mean I hope Obama wins this Fall? Hardly

    Are these people nuts? According to FR’s 2012 definition of conservative, there aren’t ANY!! not one!!

    A quote from the Gipper, he used to be considered a conservative until 2012.

    “When I began entering into the give and take of legislative bargaining in Sacramento, a lot of the most radical conservatives who had supported me during the election didn’t like it.

    “Compromise” was a dirty word to them and they wouldn’t face the fact that we couldn’t get all of what we wanted today. They wanted all or nothing and they wanted it all at once. If you don’t get it all, some said, don’t take anything.

    I’d learned while negotiating union contracts that you seldom got everything you asked for. And I agreed with FDR, who said in 1933: ‘I have no expectations of making a hit every time I come to bat. What I seek is the highest possible batting average.’

    If you got seventy-five or eighty percent of what you were asking for, I say, you take it and fight for the rest later, and that’s what I told these radical conservatives who never got used to it”.

    That may be why he ran Massachusetts into the ground. Well, to be fair, it is perpetually running into the ground because of progressives like Mitt. It was third from the bottom in terms of business growth,

    Well now, quoting stats put forth by David Axelrod are we? I'm only giving this a one post reply.

    Did you know the 2005 unemployment rate in MA was 4.8%? 4% is essentially full employment. How much "business growth" can you have when the State is fully employed? Does that factor into your Axelrod "factoid" on MA's "business growth"?

    Reported by PolitiFact:

    "According to a spokesman, the Romney campaign calculated the yearly percentage increase or decrease in job growth for each of Romney’s four years in office. So from December 2002 to December 2003, the job growth in Massachusetts was 51st highest nationally out of 50 states plus the District of Columbia -- in other words, dead last. The following year, it was 46th, then 40th, then in Romney’s final year in office -- December 2005 to December 2006 -- it was 30th in the nation.

    Looking at the statistics in this way advances the Romney camp’s argument that, while Massachusetts’ overall job growth under Romney was among the lowest of any state, the trendline over time puts his tenure in a more favorable light. A state that was a doormat in job growth at the beginning of his tenure rose into the broad middle of the rankings by the end of it.

    We did our own math and found the exact same results as the Romney camp. So we agree that the numbers back up Fehrnstrom’s general argument that job growth rates in the state improved over the course of Romney’s governorship relative to other states."

If you try to make it about all things conservative, it will just be another conservative group, preaching to the choir. Then it really will be done as a political force.

    That's right.
    Jim, one difficulty in trying to assert ourselves and our tight socially conservative group as the spokespeople for the Tea Party is the Tea Party is much bigger than us and ours. Casting the "true" Tea Partiers as social conservatives will make the tent much smaller than it really is and wouldn't be either as effective or accurate. The Tea Party is a large tent movement for fiscal responsibility and it is alive and well. Ask Governor Walker, he can attest to that. The Tea Party was formed as a grassroots protest movement uniting various and sundry folk who are all strongly against the ever-growing, intrusive, over-taxing, over-regulating, growth in government.

    That's right she rammed it through. Here in Massachusetts we took Ted Kennedy's seat and gave it to Scott Brown, a major miracle! Brown was going to bring to Washington the deciding "NAY" vote for Obamacare.

    But all should NEVER forget what happened next. It was shameful!

    March 21, 2010: “Should Republican Scott Brown win Tuesday’s Senate race in Massachusetts and break the Democrats’ supermajority in the Senate, Congressional Dems could pass a final health care reform bill before Brown is seated, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters at his weekly press briefing Tuesday. And if that means the House has to rubber-stamp the weaker reform bill that came out of the Senate, he said, “the Senate bill clearly is better than nothing.” Under procedural statutes, Massachusetts officials could buy some time for Congress to pass health care by delaying the certification of a Brown victory. If everything drags out as long as possible, Democrats would have about two weeks to get the final bill to President Obama’s desk.

    I agree and fortunately so does EVERY conservative candidate who was in the race...and Sarah Palin.
    Romney’s most recent appeal....

    “Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. But regardless of what the Court said about the constitutionality of the law, Obamacare is bad medicine, it is bad policy, and when I’m President, the bad news of Obamacare will be over.

    It was always a liberal pipedream that a 2,700 page, multi-trillion-dollar Federal Government takeover of our health care system actually could address the very serious problems we face with health care. With Obamacare fully installed, government will reach fully half of the economy — that is the recipe for a struggling economy and declining prosperity.

    On Day One, I will work to repeal Obamacare to stop the government’s takeover of our health care and intrusion in our lives. I will push for real reform to our health care system that focuses on helping patients and protecting taxpayers.

    We cannot afford Barack Obama’s on-the-job learning, Big Government proposals, and irresponsible spending. Our basic liberties are at stake — and I will fight to restore our freedoms, renew the respect for our Constitution, and halt the government takeover of health care.

    March 21, 2010: “Should Republican Scott Brown win Tuesday’s Senate race in Massachusetts and break the Democrats’ supermajority in the Senate, Congressional Dems could pass a final health care reform bill before Brown is seated, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters at his weekly press briefing Tuesday.

    And if that means the House h...as to rubber-stamp the weaker reform bill that came out of the Senate, he said, “the Senate bill clearly is better than nothing.”

    Under procedural statutes, Massachusetts officials could buy some time for Congress to pass health care by delaying the certification of a Brown victory. If everything drags out as long as possible, Democrats would have about two weeks to get the final bill to President Obama’s desk.

    “Anyone not terrified of another 0bama term is not rational....”

    I also find the Romney hatred mystifying. At this point it is like the leftie Dems voting for Nader, leaving Al Gore out to dry.

    Oh well, I hate to see my FRiends behaving irrationally. They say their fire is so hot, but they’re blinded by their zeal and its consequences; Obama.

    Not that I think Romney will lose if a few white hot irrational FReepers don’t support him. Things are so bad under O that’s not what’s going to happen.

    ABO!!!

    Now that these Cherokee women have shown up they have essentially forced Granny Warren to put up or shut up. She really can't ignore them as much as she wishes they'd just go away so she can get back to talking ab out how “...the middle class has been getting hammered!” [btw I hope she keeps using that word “hammered” as it is getting so obnoxious to hear from her mouth]
    The Governor stepped in and tried to dismiss the whole Indian/Harvard/First professor of color, matter, remember this? “let me say on behalf of the people of the Commonwealth, we don’t care about that subject.”

    Well, these Cherokee women sure do care!!! And they care a lot! The longer they stay the harder they will be for Granny W to ignore them. They actually have a legal “standing” which is a whole lot more than Governor Patrick.

    This ‘rat is shameless. He violates his oath of office, contradicting himself, his own words, from just last year! He’s on tape saying that to do what he just did, i.e., grant amnesty by executive order, would not be proper and not how the Executive branch is supposed to function.

    O is WAY out on a limb here. Maybe he gets a lock on the Hispanic vote, but he alienates the other 70% of Americans, those who value the rule of Law. And he further coarsens the already strained discourse between the two sides.

    He’s hardly a uniter!

    sure, and that is the ONLY option! and the House may actually pass it.

    but how many votes in the Senate do you think we have? We’d need a 2/3 majority.

    now you understand why I said there is NOTHING we can do about it?
