Dear GOP-e and other bedwetters,
No, traditional America is not gone for good. Conservatism is not dead. America is not kaput.
No need for the hand-wringing or navel-gazing and for God's sake, no need for leftward movements. No compromise. No surrender. No gay marriage. No abortion. No amnesty. No gun control. No big government. And no tax and spend!!
If you wish to win elections you must energize the base. You must turn out the vote! You must run a clear pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, pro-defense conservative who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk.
We lost this election for the exact same reason we lost the last one. Piss poor RINO candidates!
The tea party was the greatest thing to hit the GOP since Ronald Reagan and they refused to embrace it. Do not repeat the mistake in 2014, 2016 and beyond.
To hell with Karl Rove.
Support real conservatives!!
We are outnumbered, but I don’t care. NO COMPROMISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amen-—America is an idea—they cannot take that from us.
Another great message from the Boss!
And to hell with Sean Hannity and other quislings like him who have “evolved” into a liberal mindset.
Tell em Jim!!!
GOP-e offers amnesty to win the next election. Watch the dems respond to this plan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KnXz_qZ5RE&feature=g-upl
Conservative positions cannot be championed by RINOs. They simply don’t believe in the same things we do.
What greater weapon is there to turn an enemy to your cause? To use their own knowledge against them.
Top Down, Bottom Up, and Inside Out.
Have Van "I need to be pushed in front of a moving train" Jones think about how we used that against him when he is set adrift on an Ice Float.
We know that, and the Tea Party is our party now. Go SarahPAC.
I’m with you.
Amen...To hell with Karl Rove and his GOP-e flunkies.
Yep! No more RINOs. I await the bedwetters who tell us only Jeb can beat the next Commucrat.
I am part of the base. I told my husband Romney lost because he lost the base. Hubby tried to argue, but it’s true.
There was no bumper sticker on my car because he did not earn a spot there. I did not doorbell, I did not make phone calls, I did not put up signs or spend hours putting them together. I voted for Romney, but just imagin how much effort I would have put in for a conservative candidate.
I did more for Rick, Rick, and Newt in the primaries than I did for Romney in the general. Are you paying attention GOP?
Fox News seems to have drank the KoolAid along with the alphabet networks. Demographics have changed blah blah blah. They aren’t going to touch the massive fraud issue.
Should have read, he won 26 to our 24 states.
That was a lot of truth packed into just a few words! I honestly don’t think we would have done any better with Gingrich or Santorum, but the future looks pretty good. Ohio, Florida, Virginia, and Wisconsin all have Republican governors who are solid conservatives. Bobby Jindal might be ready to make a run in four years. Rand Paul will become more of a major player. Marco Rubio will be ready in four years. Sarah Palin will be a factor. Paul Ryan isn’t going away. All of those possibilities can make the case for limited government and fiscal sanity better than Mitt Romney, and all of them would be more willing to at least give some attention to social issues.
Sarah needs to join up with the Ron and Rand Paul, and start up a new party. The GOP hates real Conservatives probably more than the democrats do.
First, our conservatives elected by the people need a class to teach them how to answer the abortion question. Teach them how to change the subject to what is an issue and not make their answer an issue.
Well said Jim!
I’m All In! (no pun intended)
Sometime in the next couple of weeks, it is off to NPA for me. They told us if we didn’t support them (GOP-e) this time that Obama would be re-elected.
We held our noses and our arshes, again, fell in behind them, again, and Obama won, again.
So, Karl, whatever your next plan is, I ain’t buyin’ it. If we lose again, at least we will be building a new Conservative or Constitutional Party to beat the Progressives by standing by principles and not trying to win a beauty contest.
I’m on board.
But seriously, We only lose when we give up.
Sarah Palin News @SarahPalinLinks Between suppression of the military vote and voter fraud, Obama stole another election. http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/46302 DEMAND A RECOUNT! #VoterFraud
Sarah Palin News @SarahPalinLinks People need to stop pointing fingers within the GOP and investigate the Dems' massive voter fraud and suppression of the military vote.
“There was no bumper sticker on my car because he did not earn a spot there. I did not doorbell, I did not make phone calls, I did not put up signs or spend hours putting them together. I voted for Romney, but just imagin how much effort I would have put in for a conservative candidate.”
This was my behavior, too. First time I didn’t precinct walk.
I did get all my family voting, I did pray, I did get Traditional Voters Coalition lit out to a few sympathetic churches.
I’ve been hoping you’d see this:
This post is written in anger and frustration.
Angry that we continue to follow the Republican Partys elite ignorance. A party that continues to pull defeat from the jaws of victory characterized by pompous fools who fulfill the sterotype built by the left.
Frustrated that the reality of politics is this: There will be no third party capable of competing with the coalition constructed by the dems. As a result, true conservatives MUST take steps to irradicate the ignorance of the Republican Party while still adhering to the core values of our forefathers (beliefs that I discovered are considered extreme by over half of my countrymen on Tuesday night, BTW).
I have no solve for exactly how to accomplish this. Only advice based on a long military career in several foreign lands for how to defeat the dems once this is accomplished.
This thought process is based on the concept of irregular warfare with twists thrown in here and there for good measure.
With that, I provide the following advice for the good of the order.
LEADERSHIP: The old crew has proven either incompotent or outdated. McConnell and Boerner must go. They represent a failed plan to defend and resist without clearly explaining their position. They are content with looking like the bad guys and face public scorn when they dont realize how important it is to manipulate a clearly left leaning MSM. They represent the failure of the last four years to our own and obstructionists to the opposition. Weve got to show a new face to the nation. That is the genesis of rebuilding this movement. Ryan or Cantor in the House, Rubio or Demint in the Senate.
We also need a standard bearer and I see no one on the horizon with as much rockstar potential and substance as Rubio. These next four years must put him on the center stage with a unified and consolidated message. It also needs to protect him from the attacks from the left that are guaranteed to come.
Everything the Obamites used to deny, deflect, and difuse will be used againstt hem....including the race card. THAT is what will make Rubio a teflon candidate.
If Rubio is a resounding “NO” then PICK ANOTHER but stop waiting for the return of Ronald Reagan and get behind someone who represents the values we’ve fought so hard for.
These men represent a change in a party that has been beaten soundly in the last two elections by a charlatan and his traveling circus. A fresh choice in leadership represents change you can TRULY beleive in from every angle. It marks a clear start from inside and outside when we actually started taking this enemy seriously.
GROUND GAME: It is IMPERATIVE to develop and foster an intricate ground game. It requires a MICRO-ANALYSIS of every county, every city, and every early and absentee ballot by demographic to find how how, why, and with what method they voted. The dems have built quite the coalition but its a house of cards; its a fractured coalition of single issue voters held together by a media-invested hollyweird worshipping demagogue. They can be piecemealed away bitby bit without sacrficing principle.
Give it to the dems on their community organizing machine. We dont need to reinvent that model. We MUST develop our own. One that will INSTILL our principles in a language tailored to the audience. Theyve tailored theirs on the community organizer, we can create ours around the military special operator. This the winning of hearts and minds in our own third world backyard dem strongholds.
This isnt as difficult as it sounds. It requires a patient and immediate effort that starts with the post election analysis looking not for what we WANT to find, but for the GROUND TRUTH. GROUND TRUTH is REAL INTELLIGENCE not Rovian number-crunching wishful thinking.
It will require an insurgent effort at the ground level. An infiltration into dem areas that we identify are weak or vulnerable to start cutting in to the blue.
The COIN (insurgeny/counterinsurgency)effort would include the identification of these areas, the inflitration of the areas through churches and charitable organizations AND PARTICULARLY THROUGH EDUCATION.
There ARE like thinkers in these communities. How do we find them? Ask Jesse L. Peterson. Ask JC Watts and Herman Cain. They KNOW how to splinter these vulnerable areas off the blue.
The hispanic issue is RIPE for moving into the red. Catholic, family oriented cultures who beleive in being left alone and naturally distrust the government. And they voted Obama? This is the epitome of the single issue voter. the RNC needs to go toe to toe, issue to issue with the Race and counter it in that community, in that language, at THAT LEVEL.
Think it cant be done? SOF has been doing it since the end of World War II. It CAN be done.
WE must get deep into the education system to promote the ideals and values of conservatism that should be selling themselves. Im not talking about traditional public schools and universities. They are ROTTED with liberals. They also arentthe keys to education in the 21st century.
Im talking about the new way to educate - the online universities, the trade schools and nightschools. Corporate allies need to invest and educate with the ideals of economic and fiscal conservatism.
The RNC needs to lead and develop this effort. A novice like me can see that there is a disconnect between the voting habits of catholic-dominated hispanics and pockets of baptist blacks and their actual stated values. That disconnect can be exploited if it is done slowly, deliberately, and effectively.
INFORMATION WARFARE: We are ATROCIOUS AT THIS. Dems get a simple message out early and often. They poison the well and we are left to change minds rather than get the initial impression right from jump. We constantly play defense and think we are sooooo clever when dems (as they ALWAYS do) do something stupid or illegal and shocked when the media all but ignores it. We must take the offensive in getting up in every Candy Crowley, every George Stepenopolis face and call them what they are: democratic hacks posing as the objective media
We ABSOLUTELY MUST be proactive. We must attack at EVERY OPPORTUNITY then add each fail of the dems to a trend and theme. These themes must be simple, tailored, and repetitively broadcast to each target demographic.
We must look out beyond the 5 and 10 meter targets. Weve got to effectively interpret what the dem message is on the horizon and confront it at all levels - from the national MSM level filtering directly down to the target group level. Even I can see what the talking points of the upcoming week are by watching the Sunday talking head programs. Defense is unacceptable. we cant pretent that the most outrageous comment wont gain traction then act surprised when weeks later, that theme picks up steam. Attack, attack, attack.
Alinsky tactics must be turned against their masters. There is GREAT power in ridicule and scorn. They make it too easy to use. It needs to be culturally tailored and consistent. Dennis Miller needs his own show on FNC AND a late night show on Fox. Let him source and promote culturally diverse conserative comedians that vulnerable areas can relate to and remember. Bold Fresh tours arent enough.
This is only part of an overall information operation plan that is constant in a simple party message and what it means to each target group.
WE DONT DO THAT WELL. WHY NOT? I find it unbelievable that Obama has hijacked the reputation and imagery of the Party of Lincoln.
COIN operations involve a very in depth understanding of cultural idocyncracies and how best to exploit them to our advantage. Its not a wool-over-the-eyes approach or a free shit approach like the dems sell. THAT ALWAYS COMES UP SHORT.
Its a sell based on how it effects each target group and what it means to them. If its done right, I am CONFIDENT that the tenets of conservatism sell themselves.
In Civil Miltary Operations, assistance in areas that seem unrelated builds trust in the agency. Granted, theres a fine line between assistance and the giving of free shit but, the special operations forces walk that line well. It can be done. Community outreach in areas that we identify, in ways that we havent before can build a larger tent without sacrificing our beliefs.
The military has been doing this in third world countries for years. Weve been more successful in some areas, less successful in others. In the United States third world strongholds of the Democratic Party,I am confident that it can be done.
Heres the kicker: There are countless retired special operations planners and operators working overseas as contractors RIGHT NOW. Its too easy; the RNC needs to hire them as contractors over here.
This is, by far, not the only avenue weve got to pursue in order to turn the tide.
But, if we are going to war, the RNC must look to the military to rediscover and reorganize. The number-crunching beancounters have their place in the organization but, on their best days, they can only identify who will and wont vote Republican.
This is a Hearts and Minds effort.
It requires a new way to think about the political battlefield.
Rangers Lead the Way.
At this point, there is no future in the GOP for Conservatives. They have repudiated Conservatives at every opportunity and then cry when we won’t give them our support and money.
It is time to let the RINO beast die. Let the jackals feast on its carcass. TEA Party for me.
We’ve got to study their tactics, understand why they use them, why they work, and use that knowledge to crush them.
There was a school millage on my ballot during the presidential primary here in Michigan and it failed by a wide margin. In August we had our state primary without the millage question. They had the millage vote on a ballot by itself in September and it passed. They made a smart gamble that people would be unaware or wouldn’t want to waste time on such a small matter and now our taxes are going up.
I agree with your analysis, D.O.
If we can set our sites on a conservative R Senate in 2014. . . and if we can avoid any conservatives or moderates leaving the Supreme Court until then. . . we may still save the remnants of this Republic.
well.. that and massive fraud.
Yes, we knew there would be fraud and we must remain diligent, but we must also turn out the vote in sufficient numbers to overcome any fraud!! It’s pretty frickin’ basic that a supposedly conservative party should run a true conservative candidate and not a flip-flopping Massachusetts liberal!! Karl Rove engineered this fiasco and he should fry for it (politically speaking).
I can't believe no one is covering this of ALL things..
Thank you, American Hero Jim Robinson - well said!!
Thank you for saying this.
People need to get over the shock and pull together to beat these communists.
Thank you Jim..
God bless you...
and God bless America...
“I await the bedwetters who tell us only Jeb can beat the next Commucrat.”
Yup! The 2016 RINO Dream Team: Bush and Christie
That’s a guaranteed loss - which is why they like it.
Republicans are spending as much as $4 million to salvage Richard Mourdocks candidacy in hopes of ensuring a GOP majority in the Senate.
The heavy spending follows Mourdocks comments that God intended for pregnancies to occur from rape and is coming from such groups as American Crossroads, the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Club for Growth, Politico reports.
MASSIVE voter fraud; these people are keeping a running account of fraud uncovered daily:
My sister works in Madison Wisconsin with the public. Democrats, coming into where she worked, were telling her before the election that Obama was in and there was nothing she could do about it, that it was a given. At that time she said that it was scary because she heard in their voices that they really meant it and that they actually were speaking the truth. It didn't matter where Romney was in the polls at the times they said it, because they let her know that it was a done deal, exactly like they were in on unchangeable inside information.
Have you seen this video? It may explain some of it, as well as the fact that individuals democrats vote over and over, legal residents, as well as illegal residents. How in this world are we going to get control of the voting process when they have so many of their people in key positions, such as in the courts, where without any regard to actual laws, their judges end up calling so many of the shots? All they care about is furthering their agendas, no matter how they have to do it.
It's like playing football against a team that doesn't have any rules to follow, but we must carefully follow all of them. Of course, apart from a miracle from Almighty God, we end up pummeled.
While I agree with, I expect nothing of value to be learned from this election. Just listen to Crystal or other moderates. We have to fight both the Democrats and the Republicans to succeed.
I do still think that it is possible though...
Address the voting fraud. Many in the conservative base don't vote because our Republican pols don't seem to give a damn.
Targeting the middle-of-the-road, undecided voters doesn't work. They're always one MSM produced, Chrispie Cream bear hug away from voting for the wrong person. Better to target the conservative base and turn out the vote.
Conservatism is common sense. It's the other folks who are freaks. It's time to get that message out.
In the past four years, the only things that truly got me politically energized and motivated were: Sarah Palin, the Tea Party rallies, and the Chick-Fil-A buycott.
How did the Romney/GOP-E/Rove crowd respond to each of these things? With a middle finger. The damned GOP convention didn’t even allow the words “tea party” be uttered. The GOP-E has become every bit an enemy to my values and ideology as the Dems and their media handmaidens. I reciprocated with my own middle finger.
