Conservatives to the GOP, Calm Down.
Conservatives to the GOP. “Grow up”.
It isn’t fat cats or the Eastern elite or any such which is telling conservatives to drop dead; it’s the ordinary rank and file pubbie voter. Conservatives need to examine all of their positions and see if there might be any sort of a rational cause for it.
Since the Republican party left me I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find a new party....now I have.
I’m now a registered Squirrel (not the Huckabee kind)
Another snarky, McCain Derangement Syndrome thread...
Well the rank and file voters are only bringing out about half the votes for McCain’s primary wins as Hillary is losing with. The rank and file have left the Grand Old Plantation.
Conservatives to GOP: We hear you loud & clear ... dropping.
As conservatives, we are particularly invested in the survival of our culture and our country. We see that voting the status quo has gotten our country nothing... nothing but broken promises. McCain is a status quo vote. It is true he has vowed to finish the Iraq conflict to the satisfaction of the United States; however, we have to see beyond that one facet in the war on terror. How is the future of America affected if win in Iraq, but pass a law giving voting rights to 65-140 million avowed Marxists with no respect for the law? How is the future of America affected if LOST or the SPP, both of which McCain supports, come to fruition? Moreover, how is the WOT affected if we treat terrorists as civilian criminals, granting them full legal protection under American law along with a free defense by the ACLU... as McCain advocates?
The GOP is and will remain a plantation for conservatives. The GOP and it’s apologists need not worry. I think the vast majority of conservatives will get on Sen. McCain’s bandwagon shortly.
Conservatives aren’t referred to as the battered wives of American politics for nothing.
maggief to GOP. Here’s what I think about your recent request for contributions ...
“How does it advance conservative philosophy to get hilabama elected?”
It doesn’t. But you’re asking the wrong question. It should be; how does it advance conservative philosophy to get Sen. McCain elected?
The short answer is it doesn’t. But you can rest assured that ample ranks of GOP apologists will be spending the next 9 or so months telling us how the world as we know it will end, and that the sun will supernova if we don’t vote for Sen. McCain.
The GOP leaders know the conservatives will flock back to vote for McCain or whomever they put up.
The cry will be something like:
You don’t want Hillary in the Oval Office or
You don’t want Obama in the Oval Office.
Unless the conservatives swallow a bitter pill and take a stand, the GOP leadership wins—they crammed McCain down the conservatives’ throats.
Of course, McCain is going to lose in November as bad or worse than Dole of 96, but the GOP leaders showed the conservatives that THEY are still in control.
It really doesn’t matter for them. There isn’t a dime’s worth of difference amongst the 3 top contenders. Most of the policies the contenders endorse and the same policies the GOP leaders endorse.
Game. Set. Match.
Conservatives lose, even if they vote for McCain or Clinton or Obama.
As opposed to waiving the white flag on the border, enforcing immigration laws, the First Amendment, Global Warming Hysteria, an up/down vote on judges, etc.
Fear-mongering your opponent is a clear demonstration of weakness and a lack of ideas/vision.
The rest will find that out in the aftermath of the bloodbath of 08.
So we defeat a Marxist in November, only to fight a semi-Marxist everyday for the next four years?
“The GOP is and will remain a plantation for conservatives.”
Interesting language as I have been making the point for weeks that conservatives are to the republican party what blacks are to the democrats.
I wonder which will wake up first?
I for one am so disgusted by mccain (and the whole party) that NO smear, attack or even Hillary Clinton herself could rally me to support Mccain for President.
Don’t forget his support of the ICC. It is telling...
