Do you have any reason to believe that the GOPe could stop a mass organized conservative effort to take the reigns of power in the party?
But public schools and so called scholars consider him the greatest ever president. Mainly because he ruled like a dictator.
It’s because he laid the groundwork for the limitless control by big government.
No more Lib-Republicans! And no more Bushes in the White House!
“Do you have any reason to believe that the GOPe could stop a mass organized conservative effort to take the reigns of power in the party?”
POTUS canidates of the RINOpublican Party, in reverse order...
Bush II part II
Bush I part I
Bob RINO Dole
Further, take a look at the Senate members. How many Republican Senators can you identify that are conservatives? How many are RINOs (almost all).
The GOPe did NOT want Reagan because they thought he was radical - even after he served as a Governor. The people however, liked him and got to know him through movies and took him seriously because of his daily radio broadcasts.
Until you field another Reagan quality candidate that is likeable, experienced and a good communicator, good luck. The ones who go to serve in DC tend to go native pretty fast.
I think Jeb Bush would be a great President. He wont be perfect, but certainly better than what we have, and better than Hillary or Bill Clinton.
Pee Wee Herman would be better than what we have. That doesn’t mean he should be president.
No more damn bushes.
More specifically, can you name any party rules that the GOPe could use to prevent us from removing them from power?
In the words of ultra liberal, Jesse Jackson, “OUT DA BUSHS”.
I believe America's NEW JERKWEED is emerging.
Meghan McCain comes to mind as an example.
Th-th-th-that's all, folks.
If Jim DeMint uses his new time and the outreach ability of Heritage Foundation to immediately launch a massive new media effort to enlighten the minds of citizens on the ideas of liberty underlying their Declaration and Constitution, then, perhaps by 2016, he could be recognized as an intellectual leader in the mold of President Washington or President Jefferson.
Those ideas, if presented as principles-oriented supports for individual liberty and opportunity for every citizen, have an appeal to the gift of reason which the Creator has made a part of our nature, as the Founders recognized.
President Reagan tapped into such an appeal, and the people responded; but, then, Ronald Reagan had studied and developed an understanding of the ideas for himself. As a result, he could articulate them in the language of the day.
A candidate who simply recites trite phrases about "private sector" versus "public sector," "helping the 'middle' class" (the Founders didn't recognize 'class'--that's a "progressive" idea), and "capitalism" versus "socialism" will never enlighten the minds of citizens who, for decades, have not been exposed to the "self-evident" truths embodied in the Declaration of Independence.
The counterfeit ideas of "progressives" never can stand exposure to the authentic ideas of freedom, as presented to the world in 1776. The problem today is presenting a clear view of the "idea that changed the world."
Thanks Jeb. How to kill family rule 101.
Might as well promote the failed Obama doctrine while your at it. Keep talking.
what the hell!?!?!
NO ONE would EVER say such a stupid statment!!!!
Unfortunately there's too many people looking for perfect. One wrong statement and a candidate goes to the "RINO" list. Nobody can live up to that measure.
Jeb Bush is just saying he'd work closely with the Senate to get things done. Unlike Obama who is completely disengaged.
I have no problem with that.
There’s an old saying that says, fool me once.... shame on... shame on you. Fool me can’t get fooled again.
No more Bushes. Ever.
LBJ ? the guy who had to have every man’s pecker in his pocket ? The guy who will have the N*****S voting democrat for the next 200 years.
that LBJ ?
“More specifically, can you name any party rules that the GOPe could use to prevent us from removing them from power?”
Did you not watch the votes at the convention last year??? Yes!
You are living in a pipe dream Grandma. RINOe’s closed the barn door to eliminate challenges at the convention.
They control the apparatus.
They systematically tanked every conservative in the game.
They went before cameras to cast doubt and accusation.
If there was a way for you to do it, they would be closing that loophole now to prevent it.
You NEVER change a bureaucracy from the inside. All they care about is their control of money and power. The only way to do that is to threaten to take away either or both from the outside.
Choke off their money supply and send it to actual conservatives, as Sen. DeMint did. Oppose the RINOs at every turn. Support their primary opponents. And even then, 8 out of 10 people you send to DC will go native.
As Reagan said, “They never see the light, but they feel the heat.”
“Unfortunately there’s too many people looking for perfect. One wrong statement and a candidate goes to the “RINO” list. Nobody can live up to that measure.
Jeb Bush is just saying he’d work closely with the Senate to get things done. Unlike Obama who is completely disengaged.
I have no problem with that.”
I agree whole completely. I know that I will get piled-on for thinking or openly admitting that I believe Jeb Bush should run. However, he was a capable Govenor. I loved both his father and George W. they love the U.S.A. and protected this country well. I just don’t believe the next Reagan is on the horizon. If he is, I won’t support Jeb in spite of him.
