The Republican Party is Done….

I agree with everything this guy says about the Republican party and his sentiment, except the date. The date the principled conservative movement actually lost any hope of reforming the Republican party was May 20th 2014.  This is the same exact date that Jeb Bush became the absolute guaranteed GOP candidate for 2016.

Everything between May 20th 2014 and November 8th 2016 is baked into the cake. 

McConnell and Boehner

(Bell News) The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result.

Over the past 40 plus years of life I have been fed the line that if a person doesn’t vote for the Republicans then the Democrats will win. Or if we start a third party it will split the vote and the Democrats will win.

The problem is if both the Republican and the Democratic parties are so infiltrated with Progressives to such an extent that they are basically two cheeks of the same ass, and no matter what party I vote for I end up with a Progressive party, then what’s the point of voting for a Republican let alone voting at all?

The GOP’s actions today (combined with actually suggesting Jeb Bush as a Presidential candidate, pushing for Amnesty, the list goes on and on..), with refusing to vote out Progressive John Boehner as Speaker of the House, and then immediately taking revenge upon the few Republicans who actually listened to the wishes of the people, has told me what I’ve already known for a long time but was afraid to admit.

It’s time to throw the Republicans to the curb.

It’s time to start a new political party.

Now for those who would argue with me and say that “We need to take back the party” I have one word for you: (read more)

Jeb-Bush

Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush – “What Difference Does It Make?

Take the model of UKIP and form a 3rd party asap.  2016 is already a write off.  The Goal is now 2020.

    The strange part is that we conservatives are the lifeblood of the Republic. These big government entitlement types could not exist without us. So our only solution is Segregation. Like in Atlas Shrugged, we eventually will have to either leave or fight.

      We are the fuel for their fire. They know it. They know we won’t stop until we die. And the people will miss us when we’re gone but they won’t understand who or what we were — they will think that we were mean, hateful and worse than what they end up with but that is all. And so long as logic, reason, cause and effect are kept out of discussion and understanding? Well, it’ll be worse than the USSR’s failure.

      There is no-where to run and no-where to hide because the mainstreaming of evil is a global phenomenon. You, like the defenders at the Alamo or the Spartans at Thermopylae, can come together as a band of brothers and go out defiantly in a blaze of glory, or wait until you as individuals, defenders of your God given rights, are branded by the PC elites as self serving haters and racists and deprived of the ability to financially sustain yourselves.
      Let the fantasy of voting for X or supporting group or proposition Y sustain you, but realize it is nothing but a coping mechanism. Until you’ve abdicate morals and reason and affiliate yourself with your enlightened masters you have Zero say and Zero rights.
      So get with the program or perish…praise the fascists, worship the PC enlightened, hug the sexual deviants, idolize the heroic anarchist and jihadists, spread the approved TRUTHS, and commit heart, soul, and mind to “the way.”

      Conservatives, especially truly patriotic, activist conservatives confuse the Constitution and the Republic with the Government (the Establishment-both parties are really one unity, bought and paid for).

      You don’t start a third Party, you take over the second Party if you want to gain some leverage inside the Establishment. A third party will never grow in the electoral system.

      However, you are still playing their game. They want you to plan 6-8-10 years out.

      Until you realize that the Elite Cult Ideology has control of all schools, all media, all think tanks, all NGO’s, and sets the meme of the day, you won’t get close to changing things.

      Home schooling is radical. Foster it.
      Spirituality is radical. Foster it. (Treehouse does.)
      Challenge the output from the Cult government. Everything is a lie, a fraud. Challenge it all.
      Attack them (like Andrew Breitbart did, over and over, with well-armed material that exposes the Cult and the Lies).

      Reexamine your own analysis of Hegemonic world rule the Elite Cult uses globally.
      This is not a local (USA) problem. They rule the globe.

      See through the lies about Russia, Putin, China, Eurasia, Latin America, Africa, Middle East. Get up to speed on the global manipulation.

      Explore the history of the big world events just as you explore the small, tragic local events.

      There is a global resistance to the same Tyranny here because outside the US it is recognized as the Hegemon.

      You can’t have Freedom while serving Tyranny; you can’t be protecting the Constitution and Rule of Law while defending Tyranny. Country is not government, government is not homeland (where did that come from?) or motherland or fatherland.

      Country is its citizens and property, not government.

      Contry isn’t the Parties. It’s much bigger and deeper than Party. Those are co-options of energy for the masses.

      The enemy is Government. Government is the enemy.

      At some point, it is the King all over again.
      Runnymede was the example. The knights put knives and swords to the King in order to get the Magna Carta, the legal foundation of Liberty and Constitution.

      If you think a third Party is the same, you are delusional.

      Know your enemy. Know its strengths and weaknesses.

      • rdenisw……I left the Republican Party in 1999 after Trent Lott let clinton off the hook. I saw the “writing on the wall” even before then. Edward House, Wilson’s handler said in 1913 or there-about, “our goal is to merge the two parties, so that when they “us” wish to throw the scoundrels out, we don’t lose anything”….or something similar. There is truly only one option left, and I dread that fact,but as the just mudered French cartoonist said, “I would rather die standing, then live on my knees”. Now the span of years between your 68 years and my 62 might offer some difference in experience, it probably is only that you built your first treefort 6 years before mine, and you were allowed to stay up on Sundays to watch Bonanza a few years earlier than I. Other than that, we are of the same spirit !

Still, with enough SFr, they keep it up a tad better than most…but Europe as a whole is no “shining city” these days…it may just be due to the lack of information Americans get about the daily deterioration.

                  1. Here’s some info about the Platzspitz (“Needle Park”). That ill-fated idea was 1987-1992, i.e., 23 years ago, and the park is now as you will see in the photos. Zurich is the economic capital of Switzerland. Major banks, private banks, insurance and re-insurance companies, FIFA headquarters, and many biotech and medical device industries are here. The city is elegant, well-maintained, safe, and beautiful, as are the cities of Basel, Bern, Lucerne, Zug, Interlaken, Lausanne, Geneva, St. Gall, Thun, St. Moritz, Davos, Gruyere, and Biel/Bienne. But what other “threats” does Switzerland face that are being handled poorly in your opinion? I am sitting at the edge of my seat. Here’s the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platzspitz_park
                  2. Happy to show you my Swiss passport. I became a Swiss citizen in 2011. Like others who are serious about becoming a Swiss citizen, I put in the requisite number of years, can speak one of the national languages at a native level, passed a rigorous in-person interview by the town council, had to take a written test on history, culture, and government of Switzerland (in German), provide documentation that I was not in trouble with the law, had no outstanding liens against me, had paid all of my taxes, had proof of health insurance, and also demonstrate that I would be a good Swiss citizen and had a steady job and knew local customs.
                  3. I do not have boatloads of money, but I am thrifty and well-compensated because I work hard, take calculated career risks, and have requisite education (BA, MA, JD, and MBA degrees from top universities) and experience (20+ years on two continents for 5 Fortune 500 companies in field-based, regional, and headquarter roles), speak two languages fluently, and have managed and/or worked in over 60 countries around the world.
                  4. It is no secret that I am gay — apparently you are the only one who doesn’t know — which is not surprising since your knowledge of a lot of things is sorely lacking, but doesn’t prevent you from opening your mouth to exchange feet. My Swiss partner and I have been in a “registered partnership” (no, it’s not called marriage over here) for 8 years (we’ve been together 13 years). Our being in a registered partnership had no effect on my becoming a Swiss citizen. You are right, owning property does not qualify one for citizenship, but your original comment spoke of being financially well-prepared. We purchased and paid for a 3-bedroom, 2-bath flat in 9 years by accelerating mortgage payments and being thrifty and with additional payments to our pension plans (tax-deductible), we can retire now at 55 but chose not to. Is that financially well-prepared enough for you?
                  5. You recognize nothing about me. The first I am seeing your username on this site is today. Nice try. I recognize a xenophobe a kilometer away. Oops, a should have said “mile” because I know how sensitive you are about Americans who have adapted and integrated to life outside the US. This is Switzerland, honey, not some Honey Boo-boo trailer park.

                  2. I never asked, nor care, about your background and wonder at the connection between architecture and your knowledge of languages. However, it was you who made the flippant, ignorant remarks about Zurich and Switzerland, and also mused that one would have to be “well-prepared financially” to make a decision about choosing just one citizenship (which I factually demonstrated). You also made snide remarks about my sexuality (and not one but two vulgar insinuations about how it may have played a role in my getting citizenship). I stated with utter clarity the process by which I was granted citizenship, which is legally and factually correct for all applicants.

              Having options and choices is more valuable than many realize. America has, as an institution, not so much quit on its citizenry but rather it was express couriered a new procedures manual from central office.
              That new manual can not be read directly, just reconstructed through direct and indirect observation of what the Regime does, what is enforced and not upon whom. Looks to me like you have created a pretty accurate sketch of what that user manual contains, and have trimmed your sails accordingly.

            I don’t blame ZM one bit. I know many rock-solid conservatives who are loyal to what America was, but is no longer. For the last ten years, I have had conversations in which various friends have discussed options of leaving this country. These are not people who are wealthy and these are NOT quitters or people who don’t care about their country. They are people who see their country has been taken over, our former way of life almost destroyed, our culture and society a nasty, rotten mess of lawlessness and perversion and rampant sin and corruption, from top to bottom.

            Any fight to undo this should have begun long, long ago. Where were all the fighters 20 or 30 years ago, when we might have had a better chance?

            I’m an old lady with many health problems. What I have to look forward to, when my poor hard-working husband finally gets to retire, is living on a pension, scraping to make it through each month, and struggling to even have a doctor who will prescribe for me the expensive medications I need to keep going. I look forward to the likely future of being denied medical care so that I will die sooner rather than later to save the tax $$. Never mind that I worked almost all my life, from the age of 18, as has my husband, and we have paid and paid and paid into the system.

            I look around today and cannot believe this country…what it has become. If I could get away from all this, I would.

              Where were all the fighters 20 or 30 years ago, when we might have had a better chance?

              I don’t see myself as a “fighter” but I can tell you exactly where even the passive resistance (that might have been effective) was 20-30 years ago:

              They were standing around in small groups whispering about those of us who even dared suggest in a quiet conversation that it was important not to violate one’s own personal convictions in voting for Bill Clinton over Bush, Sr., and voting for Perot to make a point (they said).

              Those who might have been effective would mock people like me who quietly made the point that greasing the skids for abortion on demand had already set in motion some awful things.

              Those who had a position from which to speak were embarrassed by us blue collar types who didn’t like liars and gently (at the beginning – remember the church lady?) mocked us as a religious nuts.

              Where were all the fighters 20-30 years ago? Ask the majority of those who are finally speaking up today. Look at all the conservative blogs today, filled with commenters and readers. Ask THEM where THEY were 20-30 years ago and you will have the answer to your question.

              In 1993 I was teaching a women’s Bible study group in a Baptist church in the Antelope Valley in CA. Individuals would nervously approach me after our sessions, asking what they should do: their husbands were “about to lose their jobs” and they were afraid that Bush, Sr. was too rich and they were in the process of deciding to vote for Clinton. (IOW, they had already, mentally, sold out their convictions and were going to vote their wallet, just like the welfare crowd is accused of doing today – the very people who loudly criticize the welfare crowd now did, in 1992, exactly the same thing that they criticize the welfare crowd for doing).

              When they asked me their question it was always a a short conversation. I asked, “Since we know that Bill Clinton is pro-abortion your decision is essentially based on fear about your income. And you only need to decide if your income is more important than babies not being killed.” I spoke in normal tones but spoke it plainly.

              I’m guessing that most of those who are vocal about the welfare takers today voted for Bill Clinton to “protect their pocketbooks.” And of course, as it turned out, Newt Gingrich and the boys led a charge at the time that actually forced Bill Clinton to cave to conservative demands and shifted welfare a bit, for a time, toward workfare.

              The good old days.

              Most of those who could have been fighters were going along for the ride 20-30 years ago and then said, “See? Clinton wasn’t so bad after all.” And most of them were mocking religious and social conservatives as being either fools or hard-hearted.

              Those whose hold on power is dependent on deception will always find an audience willing to be deceived.

              I don’t think the U.S. will be of any help to Europe in what’s coming to us all, nor will Europe be of any help to us. We’re all pretty much on our own, I’m afraid.

              Europe best keep its eye trained toward Russia. Putin has a plan and he can see it within his reach. Once KGB, always KGB. Everybody wants to rule the world. The enemies of my enemies being my friend won’t last. Enemies will be enemies and the sincere battle to be the king of the world will commence with the first taste of victory and we’re knocked back by our own chaos, invasion and war. Former allies against us will turn against one another to possess the spoils the world over, but we’re living in the biggest obstacle to their goals and the biggest prize resource. Land and natural resources. The U.S. must fall for anyone to truly win. Not a pretty picture, I admit, but an absolute possibility. Human nature always makes chaos and destruction possible.

              I admit your speculation about giving up your U.S. citizenship gives me a twinge of pain in my chest, but since I believe what I say I believe, that every person has the unalienable right to choose with whom he associates politically and personally, if that’s what you decide to do, I can only wish you well.

              When this knotted ball of yarn begins to come completely unraveled, sadly, I don’t think anywhere will be safe, but everyone will have to decide what’s best for them and how to deal with what may come. Everyone has a place where they’re supposed to be.

              I will say this about the outcome: We win. America will be beaten about the head and shoulders soundly; it will be ugly beyond our wildest imaginations, but in the end, we win. I know this with every fiber of my being. The sleeping giant will be wounded and will reach the point of nearly succumbing, but we will win. Never doubt it. Never give up. Never stop working toward that end. Repeat after me: WE WIN!

    So that leaves the visceral as to most politicians.

Boehner like Obama is a dimwitted pretty boy chosen by his puppet masters (corporate in Boehner’s case) to be the face, although unlike Obama, my sense is he’s a decent man, still he’s too malleable to be anything but dangerous in a leadership role.

    But via tv and the net I’ve seen enough strength, smarts, toughness and moral valor out of Steve King, US House (IA), to have complete confidence that he is a Godsend. Supporting him and what he wants is in the best interests of our country and individualism.

            Lots of things grow organically out of anger. They’re usually called “riots”, and they have secondary, as well as unintended, consequences.

            Splitting the GOP to create a third party is not going to accomplish anything positive. If there is enough strength to challenge the party from the outside, then there’s enough strength to challenge the party from the inside. Build a bloc, and win the presidential primary.

            (The biggest problem there is: the grassroots aren’t especially politically savvy. We usually get trounced by the establishment – and even when we win, we don’t have enough money, power, or influence to overcome the vacuum when the establishment turns their back on the primary winner. See: Mourdoch, Akin, and Hoffman (NY-23 of Dede Scozzafava infamy), just to name a few.)

            As for the Congress: keep picking off the worst offenders in the primary. It happened to Cantor; it can happen to Boehner. And if you want better candidates with whom to try to primary the establishment: start taking over local precincts, and build the bench, from the precinct committeemen to the state legislatures.

            But trying to go third party is a fool’s errand – and one that could be deadly to what’s left of our country.

        I have no idea what you’re talking about, and I don’t take too kindly to being accused of lying.

        Try to keep up: I’m comparing the US legislative system with the parliamentary legislative system in the UK (where UKIP exists, and has the ability to wield some degree of power).

        In fact, everything I’ve said is completely true: with respect to political parties, we have a two-party, winner-take-all system in the legislature. There are several, viable third parties (Conservative, Constitution, Libertarian, Green, etc.). What seats do they hold in any legislature? What power do they wield in any legislature in which they hold seats (if any)? And most importantly: of the two major parties: what power does the minority party hold in any chamber of any legislature in which it is the minority?

        In the US, the majority party holds all the power, the minority party can occasionally mount a nuisance (in super-majority legislative chambers), and the third parties are utterly irrelevant.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament_of_Lebanon
      What is interesting is that the Phalangists, Hizbollah, Amal, Marada and the Armed Forces all have seated representatives. The Phalangists, Hizbollah, Amal & Marada are all entities that function on several levels- political, cultural, spiritual and economic.
      I am not arguing for the platforms of these organizations, but the example of what can be achieved for cohesion and political power in conditions of chaos is quite clear. These are all long standing entities that are effective at pushing agendas that would otherwise be dismissed and their followers gutted & spitted. Lebanese politics are rather more charged, but it appears to me from my undisclosed location that America is heading in such a general direction.

Once all the RINOs are gone, and the Republican Party establishment and apparatus are gone, defunded, or see the light, the issue has a chance at being resolved.

      It is more important to have a strong opposition party than control with collaborators in treason and the destruction of our nation.

          • Of course you do, Cetera. You love everybody. And we all love you. You are one of those rare individuals who “walks the talk”. You are a true Christian who has a way with words that can actually reach into a person’s soul and affect a major change in that person. I know. You have succeeded in pulling me back into the fold that I grew up in but with maturity came cynicism and skepticism. YOU are the reason I am back where I belong.

            With that being said, I did a little research on you this morning and located an article you wrote for CTH that has pretty much already laid out a good basic plan which is long term and would take time we perhaps don’t have. But I wanted to share it with those who may not have read it.

            https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/08/18/first-principles-5-the-end/

            After reading and rereading this thread after all the comments had been made, I’ve come to the conclusion that CTH has a lot of very intelligent commenters who are up to date on this political world we live in…..people who would have a whole lot more to offer than me: Chip Bennett, Chip Bennett, Chip Bennett, 7delta, smarty, Sharon, Texan59, Michellc, Misterfaustus, justfactsplz and Thankyou, Treepers. THEY are the ones who need to get with you and come up with a plan we can all follow from our various locations. As stated, I am simply a workerbee and an excellent “go-fer”.

            I am proud to say that my representative, Walter B. Jones, was one of the 25 who voted against Boehner. Mr. Jones has always done the right thing. Eastern North Carolina has been fortunate to have him.

            I’m happy to help in any way that I can and will make sure Sharon knows how to reach me. I have been somebody’s secretary all of my life but the extent of my civic duty was to serve on the Board of Directors of our HOA for three years. So, you see, I am a nobody who knows nobody, who has no power and only enough money to live comfortably. But I have come to admire you Cetera, Sundance, and all the mods and many of the treepers tremendously as CTH has become very significant in my every day life.

            Peace and love to all.

      28 is not historically a disqualifier to start a party. There is actually some advantage to having a small core – focus. They do not need to be all things to everyone, it would be best to limit the scope and just go full frontal reality on those points.

        I agree with you all. And believe that starting with the 25 that stood and voted their consciences and values yesterday against the elite establishment; knowing full well beforehand, the backlash of Boehner’s rage/retaliation would be upon them.

        This is from a good article at Canada Free Press :
        http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/68795

        “The 25 Who Stood Against the Obama-Boehner Chess Game Should Form Their Qwn Party” I especially love and relate to this quote from that article …

        “Since there’s nothing left to wait for, as someone said almost 14years ago in the most daunting of circumstances: “Let’s roll!””

        Here is a list of those brave men (no women):

        Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.)
        Rep. Brian Babin (Tex.) ~ Voted: Present.
        Rep. Rod Blum (Iowa)
        Rep. Dave Brat (Va.)
        Rep. Jim Bridenstine (Okla.)
        Rep. Curt Clawson (Fla.)
        Rep. Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.)
        Rep. Jeff Duncan (S.C.)
        Rep. Scott Garrett (N.J.)
        Rep. Chris Gibson (N.Y.)
        Rep. Paul Gosar (Ariz.)
        Rep. Louie Gohmert (Tex.) ~ Voted for himself.
        Rep. Tim Huelskamp (Kan.)
        Rep. Walter Jones (N.C.)
        Rep. Steve King (IA)
        Rep. Tom Massie (Ky.)
        Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.)
        Rep. Rich Nugent (Fla.)

        Rep. Scott Rigell (Va.)

        Rep. Randy Weber (Tex.)
        Rep. Dan Webster (Fla.)
        Rep. Ted Yoho (Fla.)

        They are a good nucleus for We The People to begin cultivating. The American people are ‘Mad as He*l’ and they/we (I) thought that the message they sent in the November 2014 election should have been LOUD and CLEAR.

        What is now Loud and Clear, to a good portion of the Country, is that Elections Don’t Matter, and that it is time to take matters into our own hands, if there is still any time and hope left to safe our nation.

        I have never been quite so discouraged as yesterday when Boehner was re-elected as Speaker. Up until then, I held out hope that things could change. I’m no longer under that illusion. I’ve put off changing my party affiliation from Republican, but I am now DONE! (Love that pic of the fork above, as that is how I finally feel. Done!)

        After the 2012 election, some people that I know formed the ‘Constitutional Freedom Party.” http://cfp4us.org/ At that time I wasn’t ready for a ‘third’ party. However, I’m taking a second look.

        I have also read Mark Levin’s book, “The Liberty Amendments,” and would love for this to be implemented. However, my sense of urgency is too great, and all of politics works too slow. Just my thoughts. Thanks for listening.

    As a matter of fact, I spent early yesterday afternoon seeking out, obtaining, filling out and mailing my district’s application form to permanently renounce my affiliation to the Republican Party.

    I’m willing to wager there are alarming numbers of registered Republicans who similarly followed suit and either changed political affiliation or registered as undeclared — numbers which will be quite sobering to the entrenched establishment.

    I am also hoping that the Republican party is destroyed. It deserves to be. But I think we ought to evaluate whether or not we should look to another political party for saving this country. I think we should not just jump to the idea automatically that we should form another party. We need to step back and take a look at the bigger picture. Are we too wedded to political parties? Are political parties beneficial to our form of government? Are political parties necessary? I think we should begin to examine those questions. We cannot imagine our country without political parties. We are so used to having them that we can’t think outside of that box. But maybe we should. Remember, George Washington in his farewell address warned us about factions. Was he warning us about the dangers of political parties? I believe we should revisit that speech and carefully look at what he was telling posterity. He was a wise man and a man of virtue.

We are a modern day Soddom and Gommorrah, trading our freedoms for trinkets and instant gratification, our heads buried in reality TV. We treat everything as if it is disposable, including human life, and then look to someone else (i.e. government) to bail us out or “fix it”.

      Somehow LIBERTY has to become COOL again. That is the message that needs to be packaged and sold to the masses.

      In the meantime, patriots need to prepare themselves for the coming storm. When the thought police show up at your doorstep, what will you do? Heck during canning season I had TWO pressure cookers going in my kitchen, and I posted a photo on Instagram and my husband looked at me and said “are you sure you want to post a photo of two pressure cookers going on instagram?” I had to re-think that one.

    I am the last democrat. As y’all have noticed, all the others have gone Marxist.

    Here is my thought of where the future could go: eventually, enough of us regular Americans who are democrats will realize we have been played by the Marxists, and we will decide we don’t want to be communist globalists and don’t want to destroy America. We will realize we are for the “little guy,” and will embrace a liberal ideal including not killing human beings who happen to not yet be born, just because they are victims of having little political power.

    Then, the “liberal” end of the spectrum will be free to split in two. One party might be described as Constitutional democrats, or Liberal Constitutionalists, and the other half can go take a flying leap as far as I care, but would finally be free to call themselves Socialists, or international socialists, or globalists, or Marxists, or the Proxy Party for the Supposedly Oppressed and Aggrieved, or whatever they might choose.

    Vetting at the local, state, and federal level would not be that difficult: do you believe in national sovereignty or not; do you support the Constitution or not; are you for abortion or not; are you for an open border or not; are you for the nukelar family or not; is it OK if people practice Christianity, or are you hostile to Christianity; are you for the teachers or the students; and so on.

    Pretty easy.

    Then, we end up with four parties, two generally liberal and two generally conservative.

    This would get us out of the logjam of the two-party system, where entrenched political power pressures politicians to answer to the banks and other fund-raisers rather than their parties.

    The RINOs and marxists can join up on open-border and abortion issues, etc. The tea party and Constitutional Dems can join up on Constitution and policies that do not destroy nukelar families. All kinds of alliances could result.

    Oh, and term limits, also. Big time.

    In the meantime, I am left with no one to vote for since we democrats have been cleverly, subtly, but heavily co-opted by Marxist politics, including abortion.

        I agree that the vetting is a problem. They do go out and vote contrary to the claimed beliefs and values. However, there is clearly a bigger problem on the “left,” and it could be the same on the “right:” the focus on the enemy rather than on “our” party.

        In democratic politics, the emphasis in speech-making and in friendly discussion is almost always on the “bad guys:” the evil greedy republicans. This is a communist tactic to get people to accept the “party line” or be accused of not properly hating the enemy. If you do not properly hate the enemy, you get ostracized.

        There totally ought to be room in liberal politics for me to be pro-2nd-amendment, as JFK was, or pro-life, as Jesse Jackson and Teddy Kennedy were (before they were lured by the political power in abortion politics). The dems should have ongoing struggle regarding how to address these issues, or should split into factions. But this has not happened. Instead, you get the litmus tests of party loyalty against the enemy.

        At the grass roots, things could change by developing groups with clear principles. I saw this in the Gingrich effort and the Tea Party effort.

If I don’t support the man on the ballot, how can I put a check next to his name in good conscious just because he belongs to a certain party or he “isn’t the other guy”. How have we been reduced to this?

    I tend to agree with others that there needs to be other actions taken. We have had rallies, we’ve marched and yelled and held signs. We’ve endured the persecution and demonization by the media and the “other party” and we’ve kept up our war of ideas with zealous passion.

    Perhaps focusing on the national level isn’t where we need to be. Perhaps we need to focus on our localities and our state governments. Maybe winning the battles locally will produce the results we need. I for one am VERY happy with our County Sheriff. He is a strict Constitutionalist and when questioned has indicated if the Feds overstep their bounds, he is well aware of his authority and DUTY to protect the citizens of our County. Maybe we need to focus our efforts in those offices.

    We do need a third party but it needs to be at the national level only. It needs to address the needs of the working class instead of the special interest groups. Call it the Common Ground Party and draw from all those who are hard-working individuals who are dissatisfied with the way they are currently being treated by both Democratic and Republican parties. Leave social and religious issues alone as they can and probably should be addressed at the state level. That way, people can go back to voting their “conscience” as to who shares the most equivalent values as they do on the state and local levels.

      This is an interesting view. However, I believe the argument that we have to have morality as an essential value in government, and democracy. This pragmatic view leads in the wrong direction. Once you start favoring the tax-paying, working middle-class, you start shifting favors to that group and allowing that group to not uphold citizenship as much.

      The low-income entitlement groups of today were the lower-middle-class workers of a generation ago. -Note how the food stamp roles have swelled, the disability roles have swelled, etc.

      Or maybe explain more about this secular national view that will succeed by ignoring moral issues such as productivity, individual responsibility, private-sector freedom, etc.

      I agree but it would have to be organized locally, then state or regionally from that (or probably, state, then regional), & finally, nationally.

      Think about how politics was before the “golden age” of advertising. And what “political organizing” was like before it became an industry. Looking at the expenditures of a Hillary Clinton or a Mitt Romney or whoever should give us a clue. How much of that is unnecessary & just amounts to a group of people making “work” for one another; washing one another’s backs & promoting themselves & their agenda by sheer momentum? Getting their way practically by force. All of these people are leeches, in some way even worse than the entitled, at the trough of tax payer largesse.

      I personally feel like Job One should be clearing Washington DC of every government employee above the level of janitor or cafeteria lady. Also every quasi-governmental organization like lobbyists, foundations, & “NGOs”. Cut. Out. The Cancer. All of it. The states could manage the things that have to get done until a new federal government could be formed.

      Job Two should be to throw out every law, regulation, & bureaucracy that has been formed since the original Constitution was written. Surely, people have sense enough, as individuals, to support the things they agree with & shun the things they don’t. And that should be their right (liberty & the pursuit of happiness).

      “We” have made such a damned mess that we need to throw everything out but the Constitution & start from scratch. With the benefit of hindsight this time.

      I am pro-secession. If the left wants to have their enclave, let them. God Bless (though that is, imo, sheer blasphemy) As long as they are self funding & do not molest the rest of us IN ANY WAY, I don’t care. Should they foray into conservative territory, they take their life into their own hands. If it turns out that the areas they wish to inhabit do not wish to accommodate them, well I guess they have a problem, don’t they? I doubt anyone will take issue if they want California, NY City, or Detroit.

      There are many sheriffs & military/ former military who could help with such an endeavor. People who see what’s gone wrong & is wrong, within their areas of expertise.
      These are just my thoughts, off the top of my head. Your mileage will, naturally, vary.

    I look at it having become a huge puppet show – DemocRATic puppet on the left hand, Republican on the right. Everyone’s being told to look at the puppets but ignore the persons behind the curtains with their hands up the puppets’ butts.
    With a DemocRAT in office we all get some crumbs, the Left gets a few more; with the Republicans in office the right gets a few more but the vast majority of us get enough to keep on movin’ on and that’s about it. We had red and blue at the helm in 2008 (I’m not going to argue about the date) and whose ships were sunk? How many Republican or DemovRATic mover/shaker fortunes went under? How many banks and auto firms were bailed out by OUR $$$ through bills created and passed by both parties paid for by OUR taxes? We had none other than Barney Frank, hero of the efeminatti and Left in general, skipping over the aisle to create one of the biggest bank giveaway bills just before he conveniently and comfortably retired. There’s a hero of the working cl ass.
    We tried a 3rd party – remember Ralph Nader? Problem is that all they do is drag away the less dedicated, the wafflers, from both parties. Nader dragged some of the Left from the DemocRATS but very, very few Republicans. If we had a reverse Nader I’m betting that you’d further split the Republicans without gaining enough bodies to create an effective 3rd party, the two older parties would spend much of their time wooing the 3rd and trying to form coalitions – look at much of Europe. The Tea Party sort of tried that but they realized that their only hope was to work within the Republicans, they just could attract enough support without the Republican masses, such that they are. Anyone think that without their Republican hosts they’d have scored as many Congressional seat, directly or indirectly, as they did?
    If the conservatives can’t keep their own house/party in order than what makes anyone think that going out and buying a new one will work? How long before special interests trash that one while they’re out watching American Idol and mass-consuming at Walmart? The party’s still here and, if the people in it who are PO’d can’t work up the steam to stomp in and cleanse the temple, doing it all over again and expecting a different result ain’t gonna work.
    It’s a process – we let the Republican party be stolen by special interests and the only reasonable and viable expectation is to take it back. I have been banging around the Republican party of two states over the last 30 years and making a dent in the Old Boy’s Club, where they think of their mouthbreathing supporters for a few months before election time only, is hard. The Tea party’s a constant bother to the Big Boys though, termites in their temple, and it looks as if the Tea Party is about the only thing that even comes close to being a threat to the status quo. I believe that if conservatives can get into and focus Tea Party activities (including the silly displays the Left and the entrenched Republican leadership love to see the press harp on) we may have a chance to change course. Then again, if past is prologue…

    Between the delusional democrats, who will always vote ‘commie’, and the republicans, who will always hold on to the belief that, like Anne Coulter, ‘a bad republican is better than any democrat’, where do we turn to for a viable alternative? Seriously, I have renounced my affiliation with the republicans and am looking for direction…

    The first step in returning the Republican party to one you want is JEB’s defeat in the primaries. That’s not going to be done with a dozen challengers each favored by minority factions it can only be done by a credible alternative a majority can unite behind. I don’t know who that’s going to be since none of the usual suspects shows any ability to attract support outside of his own base. The third party route will be no more successful than the 26-man rebellion against Boehner. Boehner’s speaker today because no one else the caucus was willing to follow stepped forward. JEB’s not going to be President. W took his chance away from him. The question is whether someone who can pull the Republican party back together will run against him. JEB’s counting on a divided opposition. Let’s hope he doesn’t get it.

    • I don’t see Jeb Bush becoming the nominee and I’m, frankly, offended that he believes he has a shot. If he didn’t get the message from Conservatives after his support, and outright pushing, of Common Core, then he is dumber than I thought.

    If Bush is the candidate I might even vote for Hillary. Both are socialists. Might as well have Hillary take the blame for what is coming.

  32. I left the Republican Party 10 years ago. I vote on principles, when I can, otherwise, I vote for the lesser of two evils.

    Starting a political party, that is considered a viable option, is one of the hardest things to do in politics. I’ve heard that from over a dozen lawyers that work, or have worked, within a political party system. All of them have said that it is inifinitely easier to work from within to change the party.

    Where I have no experience, I rely on the expertise of others, in the hopes that there is no ulterior motive. And, based on the political parties that have sprouted up, it is clear that it is easy to start a political party, but near impossible to become viable.

    There are over 30 political parties in the U.S. There are only five, that I can think of, that would be considered “major”, the Republican, Democratic, Libertarian, Green, and Constitution Parties. But even those three outside of the Republican and Democratic Parties barely have any viability at all. It’s been over 40 years for the Libertarian Party and they have yet to get anything more than a few seats here or there.

    Someone I would like to see in the WH is Dr. Tom Coburn, who just retired from Congress, aka Mr. Wastebook. Unfortunately it won’t happen, most likely for health reasons, unless he ends up on a Really Good Presidential Admin Team.

    Good news is that he is going to work on pushing for the Convention of States now that he has retired. I think that is our only hope and it is finally gathering steam fast!

  38. rather than a 3rd party, purge the republican party of all progressives (communists), socialists, RINO’s, moderates, independents – if our members voting records aren’t fiscally and socially cocnservative, they belong elsewhere and NOT in the GOP.

      That is extremely difficult. We are going up against establishment. They are well funded and more interested in attacking and destroying tea party and conservatives than democrats.
      This is what the tea party has been attempting to do since 2009 and the burnout is very high.
      The cromnibus aided the lobbyists who fund establishment campaigns. We are so up against the wall.
      I understand that a third party is not really viable. But the flight of voters from the GOP is now unstoppable thanks to the naked corruption and open support of Obama. The level of rage and disgust by voters is the worst ever. People are fearful and have zero faith in our government or leaders. I guess the GOP is going to have to die. The sooner the better. The only course of action in my opinion is for us to solidify power at the state level. And to try and gather as many libertarian and social conservatives together using federalism and belief in CORE values we all share: limited government, free enterprise and fiscal responsibility. This is what the tea party is all about. Then if we can hopefully take back the country.

    I find all the arguing between Republicans and Democrats fatuous and inconsequential. Both parties are two sides of the same coin. The Republicans, understanding that America is no longer America, are moving left just to appease the new voting block of America. The Democrats are further left, of course, but ultimately neither of them care about anything but the immigrant vote.

    We can blame all of this on our ancestors’ failures after WWII to get the communist sympathizers in America under control. They didn’t and now we are paying dearly for it.
