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

And how exactly do you think you're going to do that? Really. I'm interested in hearing how you think you're going to "take back" a party whose "leadership" - who MAKES the rules - is completely set against conservatives who might try.

It's time to repeal and replace the Republican Party. Burn it down and build on the vacant lot.

“Third party = political oblivion.”

You mean like this past election when supposed members of the gop didn’t even bother to come out and vote because of the choice that was offered to them? Let’s give real conservatives real choices and see what happens—even if that means a third party.

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

That is the answer right there. These guys pointing at the Whigs are delusional. Too much has changed in 150 years.

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.

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.

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?
