Donít You Go Away Tea Partiers- The GOP Establishment Is Fighting Back
Conservative Hideout ^ | 11-26-10 | A Conservative Teacher

Posted on 11/27/2010 9:06:15 AM PST by Wanderer659

Next week here in my county we’ll have a Republican County Convention, and for those of you who can’t make it, I’ll give you a taste of what it is going to be- a battle between the Tea Party and the Establishment. Although many people in the Tea Party think this is some sort of new battle, it is in reality an old battle in the GOP, one that has pitted the libertarian/conservative/teaparty wing of Taft/Coolidge/Goldwater/Reagan/Palin vs the moderate/establishment/progressive wing of Roosevelt/Hoover/Nixon/Bush/McCain. For many years, the teaparty wing cowardly left the field of battle and stayed home while the establishment types ran thing, or would win a victory and then go home to pat themselves on the back while their victory was watered down by the establishment, but hopefully today will be different, because although the establishment has suffered some defeats lately, they don’t intend on going home either.

Would it have been too much to let us in on the secret of which county in which state?

Yeah, really. Look at her record. She does not come from Goldwater/Reagan.

And what are pictures of her popularity supposed to prove? I know she is a populist, already.

moderate/establishment/progressive wing

Is welcome to splinter off and form their own third party.

What is really nice is that there are way more of us than there are of the establishment types. They succeeded in the past by taking the reigns of our effort. We did all the work to get their candidates elected.

When We the People decided to back Ronald Reagan, it proved that their king-making skills could not equal what we could do. Now, we have realized that we don't need them. They really do get in the way.

We used to carry their water for them, but I don't see that happening anymore.

What I do see is We the People becoming copies of Ronald Reagan.

How could a commie-marxist-pansy world stand when confronted with millions of We the People?

I don’t get it. In every way I can discern Sarah Palin is a McCain Republican.

What you may not get the most, however, is that Sarah didn't want to stab McCain in the back since he was instrumental in bringing her onto the political stage to begin with, and she felt obligated somehow. How long that feeling will last could be another story down the line, especially if she actually becomes POTUS.

When asked by several media people who tried to trip her up about her true fellings about John McNasty, she always seems to play it with kid gloves, coyly changes the subject so she doesn't have to throw cold water on him, so-to-speak.

Palin is NOT for open borders or amnesty, unlike Juan's stance seems to be (off and on, flip-flopping).

Palin IS for drilling in ANWAR and other off-shore areas, unlike Juan.

Palin wrote more important books and literature about clean American ways of life than McLame could ever dream of authoring.

Palin is NOT a beltway bozo.

Palin is NOT a progressive.

Nope. Sorry. I am not a team player. I am impressed by what one DOES, not whom one is associated with. Her RECORD is all that would influence me, and that record is left wanting.

Meh, at best.

I prefer to go by what she has said, not by what her supporters wish she has said.

That is a rather broadly brushed statement that you cannot back up. I am involved in TEA Party activities, as are my fellows, both locally and nationally. They would no doubt disagree.

Yeah... well that didn't work out so well last time around, when FR was "McCain country," or when it was "Fred Thompson" country.

Thanks, but I will stick with principle (as defined by Reagan, not any of the hyphenated "conservatives", like "common-sense-conservatism")
