I am pissed at the conservatives in congress...
why, you ask?
because, if they ever decided to band together, they would rule the roost..
without their votes, nothing passes... period..
with their votes, the libs can get what they want..
they are the so called “swing” votes, and do indeed hold all the power, if they banded together and stood together..
they will not, because they value power and money just as much as the liberal pubs do...
definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result each time..
TEA as a sub-movement in the GOP makes sense.
You know, no GOP person, not even the most looie liberal of them, has EVER called TEA, “Tea Baggers.” That is a crudity reserved to Democrats.
Hensnarling...now where have I heard that name before?
...he's the party-first guy who Boehner used to freeze Michele Bachmann out of the House leadership circle.
Time to abandon the corrupt, decrepit GOP-E once and for all.
KaptainCrunch is right. This fight needs to take place in the primaries. We might lose some seats that Republicans should have won, but we will eventually change the views of the Republican party.
I will add one caveat. We still need to elect candidates that can win. In conservative districts, we need conservatives on the ballot. In more liberal districts, we can support our more moderate candidates.
Conservatism is not an ideology: it is a way of life.
There are plenty of honest conservatives in the house.
The problem is that there are not enough to replace boner with one of their own.
The solution is to support those that are there and elect more like them until they have the votes to replace boner.
It might take a couple more election cycles, but if it does so be it.
The trouble with repubs is that they do not think long term. Dims, dim as they are, think long term. They have put their rats in everything from schools to congress, from your local courthouse to every bureaucracy in DC.
Look on it as a war. Wars are not won by Rambos. They are won by logistics....in other words supply lines that have the right stuff and more of it than the enemy. Of course, the French are the exception.
The endless chain of local politicians are our supply line and we neglect them.
I would just vote no on everything and not work with anyone from the establishment, which would free up my time to go and advocate like crazy. I’d work with vast right wing conspiracy revolutionaries and anyone else who would work with me in Congress or elsewhere on many fronts, working to bolster the cause of Christianity, the rule of law, a strong America, personal freedom and responsibility, free enterprise, etc.
And every month or so introduce some right wing bill that they would ignore.
I’m not someone who would or could run for Congress, but for those that are there or thinkin about runnin... just sayin...
These actions by the establishment GOP leaders are reminiscent of FDR packing the Supreme court to further his agenda, only this is the exact opposite, unpacking the various finance committees of Tea Party types so as to not to impede "reaching across the aisle" and compromising with Obama.
Vive le Resistance !
To the Barricades !
4 post, that didn't take long.
We are called the T.E.A. Party but we're really not a party at all.
We are part of a party that despises us.
Anyone still not getting the point?
What conservatives call “RINO”s ARE the GOP - the Geriatric Old Plotters.
The REAL Republican Party is the party of Rockefeller, Ford, NWO Bush, McCain, Castle, Murkowski, Boehner, Graham, Romney and court jester Rove. That party is paleo-Progressive and detests the ‘simple negro’ conservatives whose stoop labor is grudgingly accepted, but who in no way may enter the house.
Goldwater, Reagan, Palin, West and so on are anomalies. Only Reagan succeeded in breaking through that GOP gray wall of gray men with gray ideas.
Drive a stake through the revenant hearts of the Geriatric Old Plotters and their apparatchiki. Until enough of us leave this designed to fail plantation, liberty, prosperity and American culture will continue to wither before our eyes.
Boehner is about to sell us out.All Boehner cares about is Boehner.
We need a SECOND Party to combat the Democans and Republicrats. The last two pretenders to the White House foisted upon us by the GOP-e differed from 0bambi in name only. On the issues, there was not a dime’s worth of difference!
So what is it exactly that the GOP has to offer Conservatives? Nothing, THEY DON’T WANT US. We need to use the next two years wisely and get our new party rolling. Don’t forget, the GOP was formed in 1854 and elected a President in six years - without mass media and the internet.
When I lived in New York there was always a Conservative Party on the ballot. Sometimes they nominated their own candidate and sometimes it was the Republican.
If we don’t clear out these RINOs in 2014, we’re doomed. We gotta’ have a huge slaughter of these entrenched RINOs. They’re pathetic!
In more liberal districts, we can support our more moderate candidates.
Therein is your problem
Why arent you supporting Conservatives in liberal districts...
Until things change.
“Boehner is about to sell us out.All Boehner cares about is Boehner.”
He is owned. The Democrats have dirt on him and own his cankered soul.
anymore questions about the GOP being a suitable party for conservatives - keep dreaming
WALLACE: And, again, you kind of didn't answer it the first time, what are the chances we're going to go over the cliff?
BOEHNER: There is clearly a chance. But I'm going to tell you, I might be an easy guy to get along with -- affable, obviously, I've worked in a bipartisan way on a number of agreements.
But I'm going to tell you one thing, Chris -- I'm determined to solve our debt problem. We have a serious spending problem and it's going to be dealt with.
WALLACE: And if the White House is unwilling to do it, are you prepared to say --
BOEHNER: We are going to deal with America's debt problem.
WALLACE: And if they refuse to do it in the way that you find acceptable?
BOEHNER: We're going to deal with it.
WALLACE: Sooner or later?
BOEHNER: Sooner or later. We're going to deal with this debt problem and we're going to do it now. We're not going to kick this can down the road again. [Emphasis added]
WALLACE: So, if it takes it, you'll go over the cliff.
BOEHNER: I don't want any part of going over the cliff. I'm going to do everything I can to avert that.
BOEHNER: We're going to solve America's debt problem.
