They certainly lost touch with me.
When the Democrat Party became the Socialist Party, the Republican Party became the Democrat Party.
If the conservatives cant take back the Republican Party, then well need a new party.
“When the Democrat Party became the Socialist Party, the Republican Party became the Democrat Party. “
Actually I think the Dems have become the Communist Party and the Repubs have become the Socialist Party.
It just seems THAT bad to me.
I sent this to Mr Steele yesterday.
The GOP, Republican Party is not “My Party”. It was my fathers Party, and for good reason. The GOP no longer represents the core conservative values that it did years and years ago. I have strong conservative values. I am not affiliated with any party, never have been. I will not ever support the GOP as it is now. You need to clean house people. Get back to what the American People want. It is not all about you!! It is all about me, my children and my grand children. Get IT. I sent dollars for John McCain only to elect Sarah and to try to stop my idiot countrymen from electing Obama.
I’ll be watching, and waiting...........
When WE, the citizens and voters of this nation insist on that course of action ourselves, in large numbers, we will inact change.
That is what is happening with Sarah and others who are supporting Hoffman...and it is what MUST happen with each of us. It will force the GOP back to the constitution, and back to its own platform for Heaven's sake.
When we do, the right candidates and the right parties will rise to the top like cream rises to the top of fresh milk because we will have insisted and forced it to be so.
The FR sanctioned:
which is an FR Alliance web site, is about precisely that. Please join us, and a lot of other FREEPERS there, as we work together and identify and support candidates dedicated to doing precisely that at all levels.

Don’t claim to speak for us!’
We need to get in their faces more and vote the RINOs out. The Dede’s, Crists, McCains, Graham-nesties. Get to townhalls and get on them.
I’m afraid the Republican Party is doomed to spend another 40 years in the political wilderness.
If that turns out to be the case, the question is. What will conservatives do?
Definitely. I believe the Zell Miller Dems are long gone,with very few exceptions.It’s so far left it’s not funny.
Conservatives can't raise enough 'free speech' to compete. Campaign funds [aka free speech] gravitate mainly to liberals of both parties. Ironically only campaign finance reform will ever make conservatives competitive again.
Now is the time to enact Term Limitation ... at the voting booth!!!!!
I think they are influenced by the MSM. They constantly praise Repubs who abandon all or part of conservatism. Former congresswoman Melissa Hart, mistaking my husband for a Dem, once tried to impress upon him that she was a good bipartisan pol.
Can’t say I’ve ever met anyone who thought of bipartisanship as a virtue. Most people think of it as spinelessness.

But, but....Lindsey Graham told us to “get out” of HIS party last week...THEY don’t need us! (so do the country club GOP freepers!) I guess they’re counting on democrat votes with their democrat-lite outlook.
They lost touch with me once they used the Contract With America as piece of toilet paper.
It IS that bad!
I think term limits will be more effective than a third party will be.
All politics is local as they say. By the time these elected “representatives” get to DC it is too late. I wish more people would realize that.
Just joined...thanks Jeff!

Thank you! Please spread the word and please network with the folks in your state! The more people we have who make the constitution and constitutional principle first and foremost in their voting...and who insist on candidates who do the same, the better.
I’m more than happy to help. How about the Fredericksburg area of VA? Better yet,anyone in the King George/Westmoreland county of VA besides me? I’d like to find a hookup point.
Join that Virginia State group there (I linked to it in the welcome message to you on your wall). You have several other Virginians that you can make friends with there on the site and network with...and grow the effort in Virginia.
GOP fail to take back the House in `10. Forget about the Senate.
That number seems low.
Who are the 27% that are still in touch?
It is that bad.
But America is still a God fearing Country, despite what the media pushes on us and tells us we have to be inclusive.
No we don’t.
