Skip to comments.Can We Recalibrate? (Red State)

I want to beat Hillary Clinton next year. I want to beat her with a Republican who is not just another party apparatchik surrounded by lower level party apparatchiks within the Republican Party.
But I know we cannot beat Hillary Clinton with this level of anger. We wont be able to draw people to our side and our cause like this.
I get the anger. I do. I am angry at the betrayal and the repeated lies from Washington Republicans who say they love children, but wont even defund Planned Parenthood.
I get the anger of voters who sent men and women to Washington to fight Obama only to give him a blank check and keep Obamacare funded.
But I dont get this anger. If this is the anger that flows out of Trump supporters, I do not think it is sustainable. Yet it comes daily. It is poisonous to debate, to democracy, and to the soul itself.
Yes, Republican voters have been betrayed. But I do not think people who are angered at the present President demeaning the integrity of the Presidency will ultimately side with any candidate whose base of support generates rage and hate. I refuse to believe that the people angry at Washington and the GOP have let their anger consume them. But the people in these emails and so many like them have been consumed by anger.
Those of you who see it within the ranks of the candidate you support, and not just with Trump supporters, need to try to channel the anger and draw out the happy warriors.
Conservatives must be happy warriors. Those of faith already know theyre on the winning team and the issues are far larger than the day to day politics of this country.

Too much about happy, too little about warrior.
is code for Jeb Bush, the "Happy Warrior"
Begone EE....we don't need your type
Thread winner right there
More like microaggression Leep !
Kiss my grits, EE.
LOL, I went to check to see if he put up my quotes but he did not. Mine wasn't rough enough I suppose but I went it about it in a nice way, telling him he was an idiot, lol.
What is his purpose to print those emails? To shame conservatives, he thinks he is such a powerful conservative, he has the power to shame conservatives? The guy acts like a legend in his own pitiful mind.
Erick Erickson deserves all the scorn he is getting and then some.
Erickson is so desperate he’s gone on his FB page and deleted as many negative posts as possible and blocked people from posting. I posted a couple of non personal attack posts but very to point that got so many likes and replies he has blocked me too. I take it as a badge of honor. LOL!
People are angry. Rightfully so.
When your head is about to be chopped off by the NWO clowns, especially cloaked in righteousness hypocritical sold out jerks like E.E., they dont worry about how their hair looks.
EE tried to jump on the GOPe “destroy Trump” bandwagon hoping to poll vault into the inner circle and now he is circling the drain. Too funny!
I bet there’s some very cool stories in those histories !
Lol. He is turning purple!!
I am ( a )HAPPY Warrior that Erick has bitten his tongue off.
( ; )...Just like Fox....Just like Newt...Just like Jebbie....Just like Rubio...Just like Linda...Just like Walker...Just like Rand....Just like RickP.(ALBORE supporter)
...Just like ChrispyCream from N.J....Just Like Dr. Carson(on Second Amendment-restrict semi-auto’s in “high crime areas)
GO TED CRUZ...
Our forefathers gave us the needed standard to calibrate our government too. They called it the Constitution of the United States. It was based upon an older time proven principles and standards they as a majority calibrated their personal values too called Holy Bible. Put that in your Dear Diary Erick LOL.
Wait what is that sound of horror I hear as if someone is in pain? Is it a tormented person? No it's Erick writing more party propaganda. LOL
Then go back to Redstate and tell him what people are saying here.
“Trump supporters are using SJW tactics right from the left wing playbook. I dont mind trum as much as the schit that comes out of his supporters mouths any time someone is critical of him.”
True, we’ve seen plenty of that around here. It’s not all of them, just seems like a vocal group of them though.
Considering he had his mods knocking off and banning dissenters for the last week, i expect he doesn’t have alot of posters anymore. It looks like he is allowing dissenters again judging by his commentators now, but he is finished
Maybe you two should take your burgeoning romance back over to redstate then?
I won’t vote for Trump because honestly I do not trust him. That said I can certainly appreciate the fact that the GOP-E is squirming like a three year old kid sitting in church. The GOP’s Dirty Laundry needs to be taken out of the hamper, washed, and aired out, as the stench of corruption has become worse that the stench of the DEMs corruption. Right now I only see one logical candidate and that is Cruz. He’s siting back while Trump’s antics get what needs saying out into media coverage. But I believe Trump is about to self implode politically and Cruz is smarter. I bet even Rove’s head is spinning from it LOL.
Erickson is a deviant and a fraud.
How about a day where you don’t use the name Trump to draw attention to yourself Fata$$!
