The Republican party has put forth candidate after candidate who is a moderate appeaser. How's that been workin' out for ya?
It is time to run a true conservative.
The GOP keeps telling us that we will split the vote and lose if we run a third party candidate. Well, we didn't and we lost anyway.
I'd rather go down fighting, than go down appeasing.
Give us a realistic name today, not after the 2016 primary - who?
State Governors need to stand up and call for mass civil disobedience against intolerable regulations instituted by federal apparatchiks
The States can dismantle DC, call for a Constitutional Convention, and move the Capitol out of DC and away from the bloodsuckers in Arlington.
This Republic will fall due to Universal Suffrage in any event, only question is whether we start the reset now or wait until the complete collapse and then start picking up the pieces.
Tea Party, conservatism, it’s a brand new day. America does not want it. America wants communism. A true conservative will get trounced. I used to believe otherwise but the writing is on the wall.
Oh barf! Did everyone support Romney sufficiently?
I’m mad at everyone who did not support him 100%
that worked well for Akin and Mourdock.....
2016? Obama with the assistance of the media , voters have changed the whole ballgame here. If there is a election in 2016 will be for show only. In the next few months it will be a whole different govt. Obama needed this election to complete it.
Whatever, whoever.... the GOP is dead by its own hand
To be honest, the Tea Party has supported some really awful candidates. For example, Mourdock in Indiana. What makes you think it will get better?
It’s not that Romney wasn’t “Conservative” enough. The freeloaders dominate the electorate.
I am starting to wonder.... it looks like a significant number of Republicans stayed home, according to what I have read here on FR. If that is the case, I am wondering about the "Mormon" thing. Perhaps voting for a Mormon was just too much for many Republicans, so they sat this one out? Curious numbers coming out of this election...
The majority have spoken. They’d rather take than earn.
“To be honest, the Tea Party has supported some really awful candidates. For example, Mourdock in Indiana. What makes you think it will get better?”
Mourdock and Akin were a checklist conservative who assumed he could win simply by running in a red state and repeat talking points. We need someone who really knows how to present his case...or shut up if he can’t.
I agree. This was the last chance-- the tipping point. It's over now. There's no going back without a lot of bad things happening. All we can do at this point is to come up with our own strategies to limit the damage to our personal existences.
“A true conservative will get trounced”
You are correct, I think. A true conservative, living by true constitutional principles of government would not be elected, and indeed, would not even get nominated.
Government must spectacularly fail to deliver all the goodies to a large enough segment of the population for folks to come to believe in the limits of government - the hard way.
I live in MD, and am now represented by Elijah Cummings due to a redistricting that stays in place. People is this country have turned left, and there is no way we can turn it back.
I am finished with the political process. What will be will be.
The "people's business", it's gonna get done!
