Sporting his new hat as the head of the Heritage Foundation, former Sen. Jim DeMint said Saturday said that conservatives should not rely on the GOP establishment to deliver the movement's message. He said it is time to take matters into their own hands.

DeMint is right. RINO's have to go so Conservatism can become THE voice of freedom.

It is going to be very interesting to see just how the GOP and more specifically the GOPe react to DeMint now that he is really unrestrained and has a huge microphone.

Bye Bye Jeb and say no to George P. We need new life. Someone that hasn’t shown himself yet hopefully will emerge. A young, hip, cool, strong conservative that the young can look up to.

We actually do have the leadership. Unfortunately it’s rather scattered, and needs consolidation.

DeMint
Palin

A few more here, and there. Just need to get them all together under the same umbrella.

DeMint and Palin are both released and free to be the voices of Conservatism. Kind of exciting if you ask me!

Palin. DeMint. If they can get another 100 million real conservatives on board, it might start a movement worth noting.

To go along with this -- suppose, just suppose, that conservatives used the entire month of February to make a statement: CHANGE YOUR PARTY REGISTRATION. Change it to Independent, to Conservative -- heck, I'm considering changing to Democrat so I can start screwing up *their* primaries for a change.

But suppose the GOP leadership (I use the term loosely) noticed millions of voters leaving their registration rolls. Do you think maybe THEN they would get the point?

I concur.

Continued boiling will result in distillation.

Congealing. Cohesing. Sheep and the goats, etc.

Looks like he slipped on his *Captain Obvious* super suit after leaving the Senate.

Watching with some interest.

If true, this is great news. It could be the end of RINO’s, as we know them.
