Posted on 11/27/2010 9:06:15 AM PST by Wanderer659
Next week here in my county well have a Republican County Convention, and for those of you who cant make it, Ill give you a taste of what it is going to be- a battle between the Tea Party and the Establishment. Although many people in the Tea Party think this is some sort of new battle, it is in reality an old battle in the GOP, one that has pitted the libertarian/conservative/teaparty wing of Taft/Coolidge/Goldwater/Reagan/Palin vs the moderate/establishment/progressive wing of Roosevelt/Hoover/Nixon/Bush/McCain. For many years, the teaparty wing cowardly left the field of battle and stayed home while the establishment types ran thing, or would win a victory and then go home to pat themselves on the back while their victory was watered down by the establishment, but hopefully today will be different, because although the establishment has suffered some defeats lately, they dont intend on going home either.

True Americans will not quit! Never have ...never will.
Well said. Sadly, neither will the proggies.
Would it have been too much to let us in on the secret of which county in which state?
Oh really, roamer?
Yeah, really. Look at her record. She does not come from Goldwater/Reagan.
And what are pictures of her popularity supposed to prove? I know she is a populist, already.
Is welcome to splinter off and form their own third party.
When We the People decided to back Ronald Reagan, it proved that their king-making skills could not equal what we could do. Now, we have realized that we don't need them. They really do get in the way.
We used to carry their water for them, but I don't see that happening anymore.
What I do see is We the People becoming copies of Ronald Reagan.
How could a commie-marxist-pansy world stand when confronted with millions of We the People?
Well, maybe you will be more impressed by THIS picture...
I don’t get it. In every way I can discern Sarah Palin is a McCain Republican.
What you may not get the most, however, is that Sarah didn't want to stab McCain in the back since he was instrumental in bringing her onto the political stage to begin with, and she felt obligated somehow. How long that feeling will last could be another story down the line, especially if she actually becomes POTUS.
When asked by several media people who tried to trip her up about her true fellings about John McNasty, she always seems to play it with kid gloves, coyly changes the subject so she doesn't have to throw cold water on him, so-to-speak.
Palin is NOT for open borders or amnesty, unlike Juan's stance seems to be (off and on, flip-flopping).
Palin IS for drilling in ANWAR and other off-shore areas, unlike Juan.
Palin wrote more important books and literature about clean American ways of life than McLame could ever dream of authoring.
Palin is NOT a beltway bozo.
Palin is NOT a progressive.
Nope. Sorry. I am not a team player. I am impressed by what one DOES, not whom one is associated with. Her RECORD is all that would influence me, and that record is left wanting.
Meh, at best.
I prefer to go by what she has said, not by what her supporters wish she has said.
Woo hoo!! FR is Palin Country!!

That is a rather broadly brushed statement that you cannot back up. I am involved in TEA Party activities, as are my fellows, both locally and nationally. They would no doubt disagree.
Hey try selling your anti-Palin BS to Jim Robinson, and the rest of the tea party, it doesn’t work, there is a reason that freerepublic is Palin country.
“Sarah Palin IS this Tea Partier’s cup of Tea!!

Being as how I’m a God, Country, Family, small government, traditional American values, Life & Liberty patriotic kind of guy, Sarah Palin IS my cup of tea. My cup runneth over!
I pray she runs.”
Yeah... well that didn't work out so well last time around, when FR was "McCain country," or when it was "Fred Thompson" country.
Thanks, but I will stick with principle (as defined by Reagan, not any of the hyphenated "conservatives", like "common-sense-conservatism")
