Posted on 06/29/2013 11:44:52 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

dial 202-224-3121, then get operator.. It might take a few times before you actually get to the operator. Then say “Speaker Boehner’s office please” and they’ll connect you to his answering machine.

repeat for others like Gowdy etc.

Tell them “ the House must not consider any immigration related bill at all because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty bill. then all democrats in the House will vote for that merged Amnesty and then all they will need is 10% of Republicans in the House voting with all democrats and then they have their Amnesty, the end of the USA, and the end of liberty on Earth as is their goal”:

Float Governor float!

Yeah, I know the argument it will divide us etc etc etc. But the GOP is not even close to Conservative They marginalize the Tea Party and are doing their best to get rid of us. America, just via demographics, is going to be perma-Dem within about 10 years UNLESS there is an alternative. It is better to lose now and build than it is to be 10 years down the road and it is too late. Staying in the GOP is nothing but fingers in a dike ... and the flood is inevitable ... a flood of liberalism,

I’m about there, but it’s a shame we are unable to retake the GOP. We have had some gains in recent years, but lingering RINOs really hamper party reform. The thing that worries me is, if conservatives abandon the GOP to the RINOs, maybe they just “well...bye” us and walk hand in hand with the Rats to push the big government agenda while we sit on the sidelines being generally ignored like Libertarians. I mean, the bulk of GOP Senators and Representatives seem to be on the right path on most issues; if we could just root out the Quislings and get the party back in line with founding principles. Could we, through concerted effort and action, target and drive out the RINOs? Would it be more difficult to do that or found a successful third party? I’m SICK of what GOP leadership has been doing, but maybe the answer is to change the leadership rather than bail on the party. Tough choice. If we can actually supplant the GOP, I’m for it. But the danger is we just make ourselves totally irrelevant.

They'll either try and force her to stay in the GOP, or they'll relegate her to a crappy timeslot.

Such as early Saturday afternoon? Fox hates her and it shows.

This is her big shot across the bow, and a good one. She hasn't established she's going to do this, but the GOP now knows they can't pass this bill without a huge take down of the party. She's waaaay ahead of everyone. Good tactic, the right thing at the right time.

She's getting good advice now from those around her, and I think she's been waiting to make this political gesture until when really needed and most effective. Now's a good time.

I don't even want to retake the GOP anymore (Sorry Mark Levin). The stench associated with the pathetic Republican Party is something I would like to leave behind for good. To hell with converting RINO's. I quit the Republican party over a year ago. I would love to see a new conservative party arise, my wife and I would be among the first to join and support. My two grown children and their spouses would do the same I am sure. We are ready to roll on this right now.

There are far mpre people like us than there are like the GOP on the right. They just have been shoved in a silent room. Give them a voice and listen for the roar.

Many of us have this backwaeds. “we” do not need the GOP. The GOP needs us. And you play hardball. You thell THEM what THEY are going to do with sheer numbers. They then do it or become Dems in full.

The GOP must be forced into that quiet room. And we CAN do it. Just as soon as we stop listening to the Kapos screaming how we will be wiped out and the Dems will win and all the other CRAP they forced on conservatives with Romney.

Fear won that day. If we let it win another day we may as well just go home now and not even discuss any of this as we will have already lost.

And I DEFY any of the lesser evil crowd to refute it.

I thought that is what we have been doing the last eight years.
The only way we become irrelevant is if the second amendment is repealed,all guns are confiscated and we lose the option to hit the reset button.

The other problem is even if a majority of Repubs, non-voting conservatives and independents switch to a truly conservative party, the remaining “moderate” , RINO, and liberal Republicans will steal off enough of the vote to give the Dems a win every time.

Marketing. This is going to be hard work. That's our biggest problem. The system has worked pretty well for us for a very long time with a minimum of effort. We think, "Everything will be OK, with or without my effort, because it always has before."

But no longer is that true. The machine is seriously broken, and we have to fix it. We do that by building coalitions with people who may not be like us in every respect, but who can be shown, with enough thought and effort, that our product is better for them and their interests than what the dems are selling.

Besides, there's no such thing as an unsolvable problem. If we give it our absolute best shot and it doesn't work out right away, God is still in control and has His reasons for delaying our discovery of the solution. But if God helps us, there is no puzzle we cannot solve. Either way, it's all good, and we should proceed in confidence that GOOD WILL ULTIMATELY PREVAIL.

“You just know Boehner will try his best to push something through that can be dismantled in conference, then weep and act surprised”

Weepy has already stated there will be a different Republican House Bill, and yes it will get destroyed in conference, 1,000 of pages, with land mines all through it. But it will pick off enough Dumblicans so that Weepy can say the Hastert Rule is not in effect.

Personally if any Bill goes to a vote I would want a clause that if any portion of it is found Unconstitutional, it null and voids the entire Bill. The RATs are going to suck the Dumblicans in, only to file suit once the Bill is signed....”equal protection" this, blah blah blah that, in order to get the Law Breakers Bennies and voting rights ASAP.

And I DEFY any of the lesser evil crowd to refute it.

Levin ( and Bennett for that matter, but he won't go for this, he is too busy playing patty-cake with Kristol) has been saying we need to go on the Offensive...

The E-GOP and DNC may have up to 30 million voters in a heart-beat that not personally but entomologically can't stand them ( because of their ideas), and will go forward with courage to defeat them in the arena of ideas.

Both parties who have been playing us with this 2 card monte game. They now will forever be on defense until the "Freedom" party becomes and equal.

It is deviously brilliant, and I love it !!!

“I believe there are more (D) conservatives than we can imagine out there wishing for new options. Here in Utah they are Democrats mainly because of a misconception that Mormons are Republicans.”

Exactly, Binger. Aside from the vocal (import) parasite mob of leftist D’s in Salt Lake City proper, you are on spot about resident democrats in Utah, in my experience here, too.

Time was, our differences were minor. The progressives left the thoughtful part of the D party as the GOPe left us.

We’re now a divided society, with a one party system.

We want our republic back.

I already left over Romney. Took Palin long enough. I find it amusing that those of us who didn’t roll over or left the GOP were called traitors and liberals and told that a 3rd party would never float. Many of these same ones are now supporting the idea if Palin is on board.

Many of us have this backwaeds. “we” do not need the GOP. The GOP needs us. And you play hardball.

I so believe that! We may not have the numbers in the beginning that we might like, but we SURE have the numbers to knock the current GOP on their butts and take them out, and that is where we must start. I believe our numbers would grow even more just from doing that, and I think we will be pleasantly surprised to see just how our numbers stack up against those who are controlling the GOP right now. I do believe we outnumber them by more than many people think.

When you hear/see the GOP/Lesser evil crowd come on or even create threads like this one spouting the same old crap that we just ‘can’t’ do without the GOP and HAVE to elect their libs, ask them what the point is of discussing a third party or even complaining about the GOP at all if they are just going to keep voting for them regardless of what they do anyway. And MAKE THEM give you an answer.

The Founders put their lives and families on the line to fight an actual shooting war. And we can’t even force ourselves to vote on principle? The very principles they established?

I think we can and to hell with the naysayers.

“For all the bitching we do, there are still Reagan Dems alive out there. They just have no voice. There are also younger Dems not DU moonbat, but the albatross will NEVER EVER allow them to vote that way.

“Look at the Paulites. Some of them actually ARE conservative in many ways. But they too will NEVER vote GOP. Because the GOP and it’s no principle BS will roll on them and they know it.

“They may never campaign for Palin, but they would vote for her a hell of a lot faster than the next Romney. BECAUSE they share many of OUR beliefs.


Yes sir, this Paulite is “in many ways conservative” and I’m not a Sara Palin fan. I’m a registered Republican but could not vote for Romney or McInsane. So YES I would vote for the Freedom Party candidate(s) before any of the GOP candidates. Absolutely. Obviously I wouid like the new party to be much more libertarian, but any movement toward small and less intrusive government would be so welcome I would vote for Palin herself. In a heartbeat.

I’ve been in utter despair since the last election, when I realized the majority of voters are now liberal.

I had previously disapproved of 3rd parties since they just split the majority party vote, but if the Republican Party is going to lose anyway in the foreseeable future—and if 11 to 30 million illegals get citizenship it certainly will—then I might as well leave for a third party where I can vote for the candidate I really want.

And thats all we have to do to win. It’s all we ever had to do. When you depower the biggest problem, the rest takes care of itself.

The GOP conspired with many ‘right wing’ bloggers to tank the conservative candidates. If there is no GOP to do that, conservatives do not have to waste resources fighting 2 front wars. The GOP has them broke and PR smeared before ever getting to the dems.

And lets face it. Conservative candidates, truly conservative candidates, will quickly get a consensus of us behind them...thus no GOP 2012 primary fiasco.

How about not just across the board cuts of all those bureaucratic agencies (as in trimming their budgets) but SHUTTING MOST OF THEM DOWN!!!!

(Sorry to shout, that’s just how frustrated I am.)

Most of these bureaucratic agencies need to be totally disbanded. Send everyone home, turn out the lights, put a for sale sign in front of the buildings.

If we can do that, repeal the 17th amendment and start abiding by the 10th, we might actually save this country.

Go Sarah!
