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.

Why should we stick with a party that is convinced that the only way to win elections is to STAND FOR NOTHING? It has worked so well in the past. Has anyone speculated how we were able to hold the House in the last election? Was it that our candidates were so superior or the RAT candidates so awful?

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.

Which is why the ballot box of Liberty is closed. Voting won't fix this problem. The establishment controls both parties and can block any third party. Nothing substantial can change through voting. Republicans move Left slowly. Democrats move Left quickly.

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.

Exchange from FoxNews Sunday, Dec 4, 2012:

Boehner sounded resolute.

But ...

The GOP has a history of caving and calling it bipartisanship. Pubbies fold. That's what they do. It's in their nature. They want to be liked by the popular kids [Dems].

Boehner must be loved by Democrats in Ohio. They didn’t even bother to run a candidate against him. He got elected unopposed this year.

The counties in his district voted against Obama on average of around 60-40.

Why RINOs are more dangerous than Democrats.

You can’t fight the enemy while somebody inside is opening up the fortress gates.

No, we need to control the GOP as effectively as the Progressives control the DNC. Third party = political oblivion.


The progressive takeover of the DNC has been decades in the making, and the indoctrination of our youth by educators aligned with the progressive movement makes it nearly impossible to overcome short term using incremental methods.

Romney thought he could beat Obama by winning over the 10% independents. Instead only 36% of registered GOP turned out to cast their vote and Obama won with lower turnout than he garnered in 2008. Imagine that.

There is no choice...conservatives have to split off and go 3rd party and begin to win local and state elections and in the process begin building a national brand. The youth will be enticed by voting against the status quo (Obama) that has brought them nothing but pain and despair.

Otherwise in 2016 we will have Jeb Bush shoved down our throats as the RNC nominee.

Local primaries maybe, we will never run our candidate for president as long as the first primaries are in purple/blue states.

We need to close all primaries and move them all to within 2-3 weeks of each other or all on one weekend. By the time my primary comes around I am left with the likes of Mittens and McLame. My person is usually out by the second RINO primary.

It’ll be fun watching all the Romney Republicans on FR getting religion on this topic.

If you’ll pardon the expression.

You think Tester is a Blue Dog Democrat? Believe me, if the Senate was one vote short of confiscating private weapons and the Democrat party whistled, old John would vote yes so fast that your head would spin. He talks Republican, and hides behind the Democrat party. He’s a con man....a grifter.....a pickpocket.....a Democrat.

Any good conservative candidate who runs again Boehner will get my financial support in 2014. RNC will never get another dime.

Are you as certain that a Third Party will lead to political oblivion as I am that the current course will lead to societal oblivion?

BINGO!!

The Tea Party needs local control of primaries and voting.

The libs started down this road in the 1930’s....to control the primary process...and how the votes are counted locally

The GOP is a third party. They replaced the Whigs.

"At this point, I'd settle for having a second party, know what I mean?"


Know what you mean. Repub and Dem have become a two headed dragon whose throats join in the same insatiable DC belly.

Dragon taming has failed. We need dragon slayers. Pull the plug and reboot the Constitution. The screaming special interests can scream all the way to hell...figuratively or literally.

not going to be easy to uproot RINOS. They can cheat too. GOP needs to be replaced not infiltrated. Burn the zhithouse down and start over. A third party will lose to the dams for a season but watch all the Boners of the GOP switch to Dems.

And how did that strategy work out for you? Looks like PAC’s wasted a ton of money and did not accomplish much this cycle.

Only because enough people did not do the same.

Have you not noticed that it takes more than one vote, more than one voter........

The problem is that everyone expects instant results to his liking.

The world does not always give you instant gratification.

As I said, the libs, Marxists, etc., have spent 50 years building an octopus type web and you expect it to end instantly because you want it to?

We must build our web.
