GOP Establishment Declares All-Out War on the Tea Party

If you had any doubts that the Republican Establishment was fighting a no-holds-barred civil war against grass-roots conservatives and the Tea Party, wonder no more.

This weekend, House Speaker John Boehner reportedly will attend a $5,000-a-head Amelia Island, Fla., event. It’s sponsored by the anti-tea party group Republican Main Street Partnership and heavily funded by labor unions. Boehner’s No. 2 guy in the Republican House, Eric Cantor, will also be in attendance along with 25 other Republican Congressmen.

If you wonder why GOP opposition to President Obama’s policies is so weak, look no further than the not-so-dynamic duo of Boehner and Cantor. Neither one of them would have gotten their positions of power if it wasn’t for the strong support of Tea Party Republicans in the 2010 midterm election. But they seem to have forgotten that and have a strong dislike for Tea Party supporters who helped them take the House.

Ballot BoxSteve LaTourette, a liberal Republican former Congressman from Ohio, is the face of the Republican Main Street Partnership and good friends with John Boehner. The group claims to be conservative and to support Republicans, but in reality it does just the opposite. LaTourette himself has a long history of attacking and trying to defeat conservatives.

Although it has “Main Street” in its name, it’s as far from an American Main Street in location and ideology as you can get. LaTourette’s group has received money from left-leaning unions, George Soros-backed organizations, and a major Democrat contributor.

The Mainstreet Partnership has multiple offshoots all housed on the 6th floor of a 7th Street office in Washington, D.C. Together, the groups — including Main Street Advocacy — want to, in the words of their backers, “bolster our incumbents who are under attack from the far right, and ensure that we hold on to seats represented by pragmatic Republicans that we would otherwise lose if there was an ultra-conservative in the general runoff.”

Another example is the Club for Growth. This is an organization that once challenged Establishment Republicans in primaries with its previous support of Joe Miller in Alaska. Miller is considered one of the best Tea Party candidates in the country, and is seeking an Alaskan Senate seat this year. But today the Club for Growth is working with these insider candidates; backing Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, and Alaska Senate candidate Dan Sullivan.

If you have any doubts about the members of the Mainstreet PAC, here’s the list which includes two of the biggest Senate insiders, Susan Collins of Maine and John McCain of Arizona.

Given the level of anger and frustration throughout the country, this year’s election should be one of the most intense political battles in American history. Only time will tell if Establishment power and money or Tea Party principles will prevail.

    I am so sick of all of these political power games that I could just hurl all over my computer. These people are not only unlawful participants in the greatest damage conspiracy ever to hit the U.S., but they are insolent and arrogant and think they are above censure. I never thought I could despise people so much, but I do.

    The American Dream ended (on November 6th, 2012) in Ohio. The second term of Barack Obama was the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.
    A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America. The GOP is the Democrat Party “light”.

    The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch… The Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order…with the help of the GOP.

    Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states, and Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing “post Sandy” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status. (Aside: with the way the polls were run, he didn’t need any help!) The GOP helped get Maobama elected.

    People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

    You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates & shy not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

    Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness…

          Conservatives will always remember those photo ops of Christie and Obama, with Boehner and Canter as our number one and two no wonder we have no faith in their leadership. This election is going to make or break our country everyone needs to get out the vote even if you have to hold your nose in doing so.

            Great observation.

          • Patti_Mi says:

          • Timothy Thompson says:

            Great question, lets hope we stop this in-house fighting, I’m wishing for a miracle possibly but I’m like so many Republicans who lean toward the Tea Party believing in the Constitution and Bill of Rights hoping for a solid candidate to come forward and take the mantel of leadership. Possibly Wisconsin Governor someone with big cohunes.

          • Sherryo says:

            Are you talking about Wisconsin Governer Scott Walker? His ego is the biggest thing in him and he’s in bed with the progressive movement too. He’s allowed and helped develop a police state here. We need a REAL conservative candidate to run against him

          • G.Frazier says:

            You’re right…In the early ’70’s, my entire family considered themselves democrats. I was a grade school kid, so all I have are memories. I remember the family’s elation, when Carter was elected governor and, as a teenager, when he became president.
            By the time his re-election campaign came around, I was of voting age and, having paid attention for the four years he was in office, I KNEW I would never vote for him.

            In the Republican Party candidates, I’ve seen disappointment. However, they hold true to the main things I support, such as God’s goodness, the sanctity of childbirth, etc.

            As long as they continue on that path, I’ll continue to vote for anyone, from that party, who opposes the likes of Obama.

            I would, however, suggest the RNC get its act together. In 1996, Sen. Allen Keys ran for president and the RNC wouldn’t give him the time of day…..Quite possibly, it was because he’s a black man and they felt the White House was to remain that WHITE.

            What that means is this: They gave a liar, by the name of Obama, who still hasn’t proven he was born in America, an opening to use his racist theme in an attempt to destroy this nation.

          • TLN2 says:

            I agree. However we must vote the incumbents out. The good old boy system must be broken by getting rid of the “good old boys.” Trading votes for bills is as corrupt as taking bribes although that is the good old boy system.

          • dcsco says:

            Exactly. That is all that needs to be done, every where. Simply vote the incumbents out, right on down the line, regardless of who the other candidate is. Unless of course, there is an exceptional and rare incumbent that happens to be better than the challenging candidate.

    • hangman says:

      In your little rant you overlooked two things. When you put down a coalition of Obama’s boot Lickers, you failed to mention another big group, the Anglos (In Name Only), but black inside. When you say “latinos,” you are way of base. 1/2 of European descendents are Latin, those of French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian backgrounds. And while Mexican Nationals are also of latin descent, it would be more correct to say ‘illegal Mexican immigrants’, as America’s Latin Americans are a proud and loyal group, and you will see that most are Republican, and anti- illegal immigration. While many traitorous Anglos helped Obama, should we just say it was an Anglo effort? Think, learn, educate yourself before you write.

      • Chandler says:

        As we all should, this post should also cover the illegals that Obama and so many Demorats and Repugs are forcing down our throats. We have the right to our Laws of the Land and our Constitution. We are a sovereign Country, we have laws yet our corrupt government on both sides of the isle ignore our outrage and imply we sit down and shut up they know better than we. NO QUARTER GIVEN, NO AMNESTY TO ANYONE, BRING BACK ELLIS ISLAND. Do you realize because of the open borders to America we are seeing a comeback to not only old diseases we eradicated, but also deadly new ones. LET YOUR CONGRESS AND GOVERNMENT KNOW HOW YOU FEEL. NO MORE ILLEGALS, REMOVE THE ONES HERE WITH THERE FAMILIES. NO MORE AMNESTY, NO MORE IF YOU SNUCK INTO OUR COUNTRY AND GIVE BIRTH YOU WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY HAVE YOUR CHILD PROCLAIMED A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES. Did you know that China is just one of the countries that bring pregnant woman here to give birth so that there child has duel citizenship, that both of there parents are Chinese. But there are other countries doing the same thing, and our government is doing nothing to stop this.This is only one more thing that our elected officials are guilty of . NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO KEEP A JOB FOR LIFE , AND THAT IS JUST WHAT THE CONGRESS AND THE JUDGES ARE DOING. NO ONE DESERVES TO GET PAID FOR LYING,STEALING,CHEATING OR CORRUPTION. TIME TO CLEAN OUT OUR WHITE HOUSE AND CABINETS.

          Fly British Air to London or London to NY and you will find a plane loaded with Muslim women wearing the conservative dress many to give birth here.

          • Chandler says:

            To be honest with you nothing our corrupt government does surprises me anymore. And yes the other countries are using our weakness to take advantage to get duel citizenship. I am sure that the other countries have a ulterior motive for doing this kind of junk as does China,Mexico, Africa and all other countries in between. It is not for the betterment of our country and you can bet your life on it, and probably are. But does the government care, no not one bit. Until the masses of legal citizens stop this practice of allowing amnesty and birth babies to become citizens, we will be in a fight for our very survival. FACT NOT FICTION.

It is close to the point where it will be impossible to repair. The things he is doing to the monetary system worldwide will cause them to stop using the dollar and then the debt will really overwhelm us. That is in July.

          • Chandler says:

            I would love to tell you that you are wrong, but you aren’t. I own it as should every legal citizen in this once great country we are at fault because we have not done enough to stop this madness, I guess it will be the total destruction of our society to wake up all legal citizens and get them motivated to stand up to one of the most corrupt government in the world, but by then it will be to late.There needs to be a cleansing of the United States of America’s total overhaul of the government and the judicial branch. I do not think that anyone is paying attention because they feel it is the other guys responciability to do what is right for the country not them. What can I say we have lost patriotism and love of country and traded it for greed and safety.

          • wandrako says:

            Several years ago I was at our county courthouse and saw a huge armored vehicle in the parking lot. I sat there for several minutes wondering what a quiet county like ours would need such a thing for and then I realized it was US! You see short articles in the paper or on the internet about a small town being given an heavy piece of military equipment and then the police have to have training and then you have four different agencies involved in an attack on a college kid that just went to the store for carbonated water! That happened at UVA. They pulled guns, broke car windows, screamed at her and they were not in uniform and scared the two girls to death! They filed charges against her for resisting arrest. They assumed that she had bought alcohol of some sort and was underage. They never asked the clerk or followed them to their apt. but attacked. There are many instances of this now. Many where the police come in large groups with military gear and guns drawn and if an old lady sees them surrounding the house and assumes she is being attacked and gets a gun out but doesn’t use it when they break down the door she is charged with some firearm charges. The country is lost now. It is too late to stop this behavior. Look at the amount of ammo bought by the agriculture dept, the EPA, the health and human services.

            Islam is the greatest threat the USA has ever had but people won’t face this fact because to do so is not politically correct, it is ignored and before long it will be too late to act.

          • larryT says:

            The greatest threat to the USA in not Islam, but the acceptance of the argument that all or any system is better than our Republic. In order to keep it, you must understand it. The school system has eaten away at it’s merits for thirty or more years. WE MUST END GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM.

            No- our government and judicial branch need to be held responsible for there treasonous acts against the legal citizens and this once great free country,and our laws of the land and our Constitution. I would not want them to be shot just languish in prison with the rest of the killers thieves and liars cheats of our country.I want to see them loose all that they have or will ever have along with there families and all there wealth given to people of need. That would be justice.

The blame is on the Tea Party and and every one that is not in agreement with the Government and Politicians.Not just the white males or Christians. Let’s get real, we the people have allowed this government and Politicians to get out of control that is why we are in such a mess. I will agree that we probably will have to use other Tacitus at some time, to get back our country from the invaders and the corrupt government. Being pacifist has done us little good.

    • Dawn Harsley says:

      The GOP helped get Obama elected because 3M registered Republicans didn’t bother to vote because the thought Romney wasn’t “conservative enough to suit them”. It is those 3M voters we have to thank, or blame, for Obama’s victory. Hope they’re satisfied, the jerks. The Tea Party’s “my way or the highway” philosophy is getting old very quickly. It is time to stop acting like spoiled brats.

      • Roy Clingenpeel says:

        We also have the RNC to blame for nominating the father of socialized medical care in this country. The RNC needs to get out of the “good old boy” RINO business and return to a conservative individual freedom constitutional platform. The Original Declaration of Independence by which we divided ourselves from the tyranny of an oligarchy and a tyrannical parliament is our goal once again. We, by constitutional edict, are free people and we are willing to insure that that stays true. Republicans don’t vote for the RNC and their big money backers we vote for honest representation and freedom to enjoy our constitutional rights. Socialist oligarchists, Democrats, are for those who wish to be subservient to a tyrannical government , I am a freeman and I don’t wish to be a slave to anyone no mater their color, ethnic origin or political persuasion.

      • Drew Page says:

        I agree that Obama won re-election because millions of Republicans stayed home and didn’t vote. Some of these “true conservatives” were mostly likely Tea Party supporters, but don’t indict the entire Tea Party for the actions of a few of its supporters. I do not recall any Tea Party backed initiatives that called for a boycott of Mitt Romney, but I do recall that there was a very vocal and strident group backing Ron Paul that refused to back anyone but him for President.

        I too am disgusted with those who claimed to be Republican and refused to vote for Romney after he won the primary. But if you are under the impression that all Tea Party supporters refused to vote for Romney, you are dead wrong. If it weren’t for the Tea Party supporters the republicans would have never taken the House in 2010, or kept it in 2012. We sure as hell don’t need Boehner, McCain, Graham, McConnell or Cantor bad mouthing Tea Party supporters or candidates. All that does is provide ammunition for the Democrats to shoot us with. Republican leadership should be finding ways to compromise and resolve differences with the more conservative members of the party, instead of throwing up their hands and denigrating them. The more conservative Republicans need to do the same and drop the “RINO” name calling. United we stand, divided we fall.

        • Dawn Harsley says:

          John Boehner has tried to compromise with both Obama and the Tea Party members in the House to no avail. He’s stuck in the middle. Remember some of these individuals have been around long enough to know that nobody gets everything they want on either side. You have to give something in order to get something. The Tea Party came to Washington in 2010 believing they would make an immediate difference. Washington simply doesn’t work that way, especially with a Democratic majority in the Senate and a Democrat in the WH. Perhaps some of them don’t understand Math. 2/3 beats out 1/3 every time. No matter who the GOP nominee turns out to be in 2016, we have to give him/her 100% support in order to take back the WH. Anything less will put another Democrat in the Oval Office. The GOP also needs to be aware that it would be difficult to win a national election without the help of the Independents and a GOP hard liner simply isn’t going to get those votes. Romney did very well in 2012 when it came to Independents; it was his own party that failed him. Either we want to take the WH in 2016 or we don’t. It is as simple as that. Like the lottery, you can’t win if you don’t play.

          • Drew Page says:

            Dawn — You are absolutely right. I sincerely hope that both factions of the GOP can settle their differences as I believe that we Republicans have more in common that not. It seems the conflicts come from which approach to take and which tactics to use to achieve our common goals. I would suggest that Boehner bring in an expert(s) in conflict resolution to sit down with both factions of the party to reach a settlement.

            We must unite the various factions of the party and back the candidate who wins the GOP primary, even if that candidate was not our first or even second choice. The GOP candidate needs the support of all Republicans, moderates and strong conservatives. We also need support from Independents, but need to realize that we aren’t going to get the support of all of them and shouldn’t compromise our goals trying to win them all over. We can never again sit back and refuse to vote for the republican candidate, just because it wasn’t our preferred Republican candidate. If it happens again, it would be a disaster for the Republican party and and even bigger disaster for America.

          • Dawn Harsley says:

            You just can’t make people see it. Let’s face it. The Dems will keep the Senate, may take over the House and for sure will get the WH and there isn’t a damn thing we rational people can do about it. America is gone. Maybe they can justify it to their kids.

          • Drew Page says:

            “We” didn’t elect the “RINOs”. If you want to blame voters, blame only the ones that voted for these people. If you don’t care for Boehner, blame those in Ohio that voted for him. If you don’t like Mitch McConnell, or Rand Paul, blame those in Kentucky who voted for him.

            I’m tired of hearing how “we” get the government “we” deserve. Well I sure as hell didn’t vote for the liars and thieves that run this country and I refuse to be blamed for it. I, and millions like me, aren’t getting the government we deserve.

            What I have been saying here is that Republicans need to stop attacking and name calling each other. To be clear, I would prefer more conservative Republican leadership, but a leadership that is able to reconcile differences within the party. I think that Boehner is making a terrible mistake in fighting the Tea Party and trying to make them look bad, because of the comments of a few from the very far right. But I would prefer any Republican candidate for president over Hillary. You may detest those you label as “RINOs” in the GOP, but have you ever heard any one of them say “What difference does it make” when speaking of the four Americans murdered in Benghazi? You may be 100% opposed to Hillary, her liberal agenda, her penchant for lying and her arrogance, but if you refuse to vote for whoever the Republican nominee is, you are voting for Hillary.

            You claim to be tired of the same old, same old, but if you do not support the Republican candidate, whoever it is, that is exactly what you will be getting — a continuation of the Obama regime, a lying administration, continued bloating of government bureaucracy, increased national debt, increased taxes, a lower GDP and higher unemployment.

            Now you can stick to your guns and sit on your butt at home if your candidate doesn’t get the nomination, but if you do, your stubbornness and spitefulness will result in a continuation of the current nightmare. Do you really believe that those Republicans who sat out the last election because they didn’t think Romney was “conservative enough” did our country a favor? Can you honestly say that things are better today than they would have been if romney were elected?

          • Original Rebel says:

            I shouldn’t have said “we”; I should have said “you” because I too, do not appreciate being lumped with everyone else. However, the point still remains – not enough of you came out and voted. You were some 6 million short of electing Romney. I didn’t think much of Romney – especially when he refused to throw the gauntlet in the half-breed’s face and skirted around like a girly-girl. BUT I DID VOTE FOR HIM. So get off your high horse and stop lecturing me. This country is in trouble because we DON’T HAVE TWO PARTIES ANYMORE. We have ONE that is just a bit left of the other one. Nobody, so far, except Tea Party candidates have the junk to call a spade, a spade (no pun intended). What we have in the repub party is a bunch of RINOS – GET USED TO IT, THEY ARE RINOS. Go along to get along. Shut mouths when dirty harry is berating and demonizing one of the only rich supporters (Koch Bros.) the rinos have. Not one of them has any junk. Not one of them opens their big fat good for nothing yaps and starts fighting back by dragging the Hungarian Hor, Soros before the news pimps, and throwing him in dirty harry’s doughy, pasty mug.

He’s been run over many times by harry the dough boy and he’s folded.

          • Dawn Harsley says:

            That’s your opinion. There are plenty of people in his district who agree with me. Just be careful. Keep in mind if there is division when choosing the next Speaker, we may very well see Nancy Pelosi with the gavel. Think about it. The individual with the most votes wins the Speakership regardless of political party. If the GOP is going to put forth another candidate they had better make damn sure they have the votes to actually get that individual in office. The Democrats are going to stand 100% behind Pelosi, hoping the GOP splits the votes. They see this as an opportunity.

          • smilee says:

            The Tea Party people totally refuse to give and take with anyone (my way or the highway) so it will be impossible to unite the party, it is not going to happen.

          • Drew Page says:

            You say, “The Tea Party came to Washington in 2010 believing they would make an immediate difference.” To be precise, it was a number of Tea Party backed Congressmen who came to Washington in 2010 believing they could make an immediate difference. Don’t confuse what I’m saying with nit-picking. My point is that the “Tea Party”, isn’t just made up of the few new Congressmen who got elected in 2010. The “Tea Party” was a grassroots movement of people who wanted lower taxes, smaller government and the repeal of Obama Care and felt they were not getting what they wanted from Republican party leadership. You are correct when you criticize those who don’t realize that two-thirds beat one-third every time, but be specific, name the names of those whom you wish to criticize. Don’t indict the entire group of people who support Tea Party objectives. It’s an over-generalization. It’s like saying “ALL ______________ (fill in the blank with the name of any group) are good and ALL _____________ are bad.”

            When I hear Republicans in leadership positions bad mouthing the “Tea Party” because they don’t like what Mike Lee, Ted Cruz or Rand Paul are saying, I get pissed, because I am one who supports many of the Tea Party goals. I also get pissed when I hear Republicans calling other Republicans “RINOs”. That doesn’t get us anywhere but last place. The Democrats love it as they stand back laughing and pointing their fingers at us.

          • Dawn Harsley says:

            #1, Michelle Bachmann, #2, Sarah Palin for starters. I agreed with the Tea Party initially. I agree with the goals of reducing the size of government, lower taxes and repeal (or tweaking) of Obamacare. What I now disagree with is the stubbornness many have shown in the areas of compromise and negotiation. I especially resent the term, RINO. We may be Republicans, but we are also free thinkers. I agree with many of the Republican ideals and disagree with a few. Isn’t Rand Paul more of a Libertarian than a Tea Party member? As I’ve stated previously, I am a fiscal conservative and a social moderate. I believe we can have smaller government and still provide needed services. We have agencies tripping all over each other who don’t know what the other is providing while at the same time we seem to be lacking the number of employees necessary to handle Medicare/Medicaid fraud in a timely manner. There is absolutely no reason why the Federal government couldn’t be reduced by 1/3 and still provide necessary services. Private companies do it. No private company could stay in business if they operated in the same manner as the Federal government.
            P.S. I am still a John Boehner supporter.

          • Drew Page says:

            Dawn, I agree with 99% of what you’ve said. You have named two names, one of which (Sarah Palin) is not in office. She is of no more consequence than a conservative talk show host.

            I don’t think that John Boehner is a bad guy, his job is very difficult trying to unite a splintered party. But fair or unfair, the image he projects is one of weakness. I can easily understand his frustration and his lashing out at “the Tea Party” because of the actions of some Congressmen. But it is a mistake for him to needlessly vilify the party as a whole. I think it’s time for him to turn over leadership to someone who can better unite the factions of the GOP. We don’t need every single Republican Congressman to follow the Speaker, but we do need the majority of them. We don’t need every single Republican to vote for the party’s candidate, but we need the vast majority of them to do so. Otherwise, well, I don’t want to think about otherwise.

          • Dawn Harsley says:

            Palin is not in office but she continues to muddy the waters. She made a joke out of the 2012 primary. First she wasn’t going to run, then she might run, then she wasn’t sure…..on and on, simply to sell her latest book. Unfortunately she does have a following. She was the biggest mistake John McCain made when he selected her as the VP candidate. Boehner is in a bad position. He not only has to fight Obama and Reid but some members of his own party as well. If conservatives want to replace Boehner as Speaker they had better make damn sure they have the votes needed to keep Pelosi out of the Speaker’s chair. If the House Republicans are split, it is conceivable that Pelosi would get the necessary votes. We know that most if not all of the House Democrats will vote for her. They will see it as an opportunity. That would be tragic for all of us. After the November election, presuming the GOP holds the House, there needs to be a serious meeting of the minds and an agreement made before the vote.

          • Drew Page says:

            I’m not going to argue with you, but we are going to have to agree to disagree on Palin. If Boehner is replaced as Speaker I too hope it will be someone who is conservative. I don’t think you need worry about Pelosi regaining the Speaker position. There would be fewer Republican votes for her than there were for Obama Care.

          • Dawn Harsley says:

            You seem like a smart enough guy but plainly you don’t see it. If the GOP is split when electing a Speaker, it is conceivable that Nancy Pelosi, who most likely will get every Democrat’s vote, could ease back in to the
            Speaker’s chair. Think about it. I don’t know of any Republicans who voted for Obamacare. It was a Democratic controlled House and Senate. Whoever is chosen Speaker is going to have to work with Obama. Again, 2/3-1/3 isn’t a good number.

          • Drew Page says:

            No one wants to see party unity more than I do. I have called on those in both factions of the GOP to stop the squabbling and drop the name calling. The fear of having Pelosi return to the Speaker position should be enough to scare some sense into the two factions. My fear is that without party unity, Hillary will be the next president.

          • Dawn Harsley says:

            I agree. That is my fear also. Unfortunately, the squabblers don’t seem to see it that way.

        • david b cordick says:

          hell of an idea, except those that you mentioned are the rinos that are in front of the cameras all the time, spouting their garbage that doesn’t help. how about we get together to get rid of them and those like them. maybe then we can accomplish something

          • Drew Page says:

            David — Only those living in Ohio can vote out Boehner and McConnell. I live in Illinois and my GOP friends and I have our our crosses to bear with the stranglehold the Democrats have, and have had on this state for the past 50 or more years. If you live in another state, you can’t do anything about Boehner of McConnell. So I’m not quite sure how “we” get together to get rid of these two GOP “leaders”. I am disgusted with Boehner’s stance on ‘Immigration Reform’, but then again both Marco Rubio and Rand Paul have flip-flopped on this issue. Chris Christie has stood up to the unions and has managed to get things done in a heavily Democrat state, but he appears to soft on the support of the Second Amendment.

            I do know this, there is no ‘perfect’ GOP candidate for the 2016 presidential election. For every GOP possible nominee, there will be those in the Republican party who will despise that person, and for different reasons. So what do we do? Do we sit on our butts with our arms folded across our chests and our noses turned up and away, because our candidate of choice didn’t get the nomination? How did that work out for us in 2012? Are we better off with Obama than we would have been with Romney? Do we again form a circular firing squad during the GOP primaries and watch each GOP candidate rip each other to shreds, while Hillary laughs her ass off and walks away with the presidency?

            There are Republican candidates I prefer over others, but I prefer any Republican nominee over Hillary and will support whoever wins the GOP nomination.

          • david b cordick says:

            you are right on all counts, the circular firing squad is so right and it scares the shit out of me. hoping that they learned from the last time. but with their performance lately, I don’t know. what I would like to know is, just how much time do these people actually work. every time I blink they are either on a break, vacation, fact finding junket or a million other reasons not to be doing anything. and when they are actually in session, how much time is spent actually doing something. when ever a meeting, hearing or committee is televised, the place is empty, even some of the panel members are usually .missing. damn, didn’t mean to bend your eyes and ears, but I get so pissed off.

          • Drew Page says:

            You, me and several million others are also pissed at he laggards in Congress. Maybe instead of paying them regular monthly salaries, we should insist the their annual salary be factored down to an hourly rate and install time clocks in the House and Senate and require the members to punch in and out. The number of hours actually spent in session by each member should then be posted on the internet every month for view by the public. Let’s start telling it like it is.

          • david b cordick says:

            I love your idea, but they would have to vote on it, and you know how that would turn out. must be really nice to vote to give yourself pay raises, decide how many vacations and holidays to take, and don’t forget the recesses that are necessary.

          Some of you people should really record how you sound. If the president was the dictator you all think he is do you really think you would have all the privileges you have today? Think about it? How many dictator would take the mess that he from the people that he take day in and day out, if he had this secret army, he would have had people in ball in chains long time ago as chains, in fact on day in 2009. Not now. He have not change one law that the courts have not overruled, and everthing that have been passedd every last one you are enjoying the benefits from those laws and to say that you not, you are only fooling yourself. Everyone knows someone who is benefiting from government benefits white, black and all races, every age, yes and some of you are rich who took your land our your names and put in your children names so you qualified for benefits from the governments, so don’t maybe you are afraid he is going to take away your investment and your ideas and give to the poor. Don’t worry everybody knows that little secret how the rich gets over on the poor to get in the nursing home. Your country haven’t went anywhere, but it almost did, almost went over the cliff, with two unpaid wars and medicare d that your favorite president left us with and budget so big that a black president had to come in and figure out what to do with it. All the republicans could do was say no touch my tax reveunues, cut food stamp, unemployment, medicare, medicaid,ss, military, jobs, anything, but don’t touch our tax revenue, that was their cry for four years, and they got their way but the fifth year, all h—broke loose things start looking better for the country without their help, the president got reelected inspite of all the money they spent to try to stop him, they kept pass laws, cutting back voting hours, days, more people came out to stand in long lines, for long periods of time to protest their rights to votes, The republicans is still doing the same thing, so guess they want a repeat or a double repeat of seeing long, long lines of people protesting with their votes, voting them out of offices. The truth is people have finally woke up to what the republicans have been doing to them and only took the election of 2010 and have teaparty come in start taking awaying their rights, work everytime.. Republicans played their cards by bringing the teaparty in on 2008 to get rid of the president and the teaparty turned around and start destroying the republicans, that called karma kicking butt. Seems like all those who plotted against the president that night have all been going falling down by the wayside, and he still standing stronger and stronger getting the job done helping the american people. By the the republican figure it out it will be to late. t

          • Drew Page says:

            Patricia, you are right about one thing. I do know who is collecting the social welfare benefits provided by the government. Social Security and Medicare benefits are going to the people who paid into these systems over their entire working lives. Many of those who paid into these programs have died before ever receiving a penny of those benefits.

            As for food stamps, rent subsidies, welfare checks, Medicaid and free medical care, I know who gets these benefits and most of them don’t pay federal income taxes. More than likely, you are one of them.

    • Drew Page says:

      Obama won the 2012 election with a popular vote of 65,917,119 (51%) out of a total of 129,231,807 votes cast. Romney gathered 60,932,078 (47.2%). The point is that you are not alone in your assessment of what the problems of this country are today. Nearly 61 million of us feel the same way. We need to rally all who are fed up with the lies and ineptitude of this administration and its march toward socialism. We who oppose the USA being turned into a social welfare state under central government control need to put aside our personal differences with other Republicans and unite in our opposition to what the Democrats and this administration have done and have failed to do.

      Many “true conservatives” who felt Romney was not conservative enough stayed at home and didn’t vote in the 2012 election. The Libertarian vote amounted to 1,275,886 (1%). Had the “true conservatives” and the Libertarians voted for Romney, he would be president today. This intra-party squabbling and name calling among Republicans has got to stop. If it doesn’t, you better get used to the idea of President Hillary and the fulfillment of the Saul Alinsky agenda. Yes, we each have our ideas of who the best Republican candidate may be, but we had better replace the “circular firing squad” process that was the last Republican presidential primary and get behind whoever comes out of the Republican primaries the winner. At this point in history, we need to back Republican candidates, whoever they are. Not voting for a Republican because he/she wasn’t your first or even second choice is a vote for the Democrats. It would be as absurd as a cancer patient refusing to take a drug proven to be effective only 70% of the time and waiting for a drug to come on the market that has been proven to be effective 100% of the time.

      • Dawn Harsley says:

        I agree 100%. Hopefully the 2016 GOP primary won’t turn into the circus we saw in 2012. Too many candidates, too much back stabbing and a primary that went on way too long. It would have been a joke if it hadn’t been so sad. We had Michelle Bachmann who had no chance, Newt Gingrich who is brilliant but carries too much personal baggage and Sarah Palin who first wasn’t going to run, then she might run, then she wasn’t going to run, well maybe, that went on for months simply to keep her name out there to sell books. What a mess. Find two or three individuals who have a chance of winning in November 2016 and put them out there beginning now and tell Sarah Palin to fade off into the Alaskan sunset and keep her mouth shut.

I intend to give the Tea Party backed candidates my time, voice and what financial support I can, but the first order of business is to take the senate in November.

        While we are talking about voting, if we don’t have every State enforce voter ID registration, we will never get anywhere. Even people that have been caught voting more than once (or multiple times), have not been tried in a court of law, and punished in any way. If we want our Government, that we vote for, back in power, we have to insist on voter ID, being the law of the land (and I mean every State), I hate to say this, but there a lot of ignorant people in this country, that will break our laws, because our laws have no teeth. We need to quit pussyfooting around and get tough, otherwise we will become, what we allow. All of these people (including the Tea Party, which I wholeheartedly support) do is ask for contributions, which I have given too, on a monthly basis, but I don’t see any action. I am tired of feeding the kitty but not seeing her claws, when she should be scratching their eyes out. I’m not a wealthy man and I am tired of contributing to an apparent lost cause.

        • Drew Page says:

          Tom — Welcome to the club. I too support required voter photo IDs that should be presented at the polls on election day. Most states requiring this are willing to provide them free of cost for those who can’t afford them. And I don’t buy for one minute the excuse that this would be a hardship on anyone. If you can get to the polls to vote, you can get to a facility that issues photo IDs. And the idea that this somehow unfairly discriminates against minorities is just so much hogwash. Requiring photo IDs wasn’t called discrimination against minorities when getting a driver’s license, or when getting a passport, of when buying liquor, or when cashing a check, or when getting on a plane. But suddenly when it comes to voting, it’s all of a sudden discriminatory?

          The Democrats insist there is no such thing as voter fraud. Baloney. I live in Chicago and I know better. The Democrats have voter fraud down to a science here. Democrat operatives regularly review the obituaries and check them against the voter registration rolls. You would be amazed at the zombie turnout come election day. Try and get into a Democrat National committee meeting without a photo ID; you can’t.

          I also support the goals of the Tea Party and have contributed to it and to the RNC. However, I have no tolerance for those who are so rabidly conservative that they refuse to face the reality that they don’t have the votes in the Senate to get what they want and who refuse to vote for the GOP nominee because it wasn’t the one they wanted. Having said that, I also can’t tolerate Republican leadership bad mouthing all those supporting the Tea Party because they haven’t been able to come to terms with guys like Mike Lee and Rand Paul.
          There are millions of Republicans who do not hold office, but who support the goals of the Tea Party, when the “moderates” in the GOP attack guys like these, they are attacking those in the base who support Tea Party objectives.

He condemned Americans (I can only assume he meant white Americans) as a nation of cowards for not having an honest conversation about race relations. This, coming from a guy who:

            1) drops charges of voter intimidation against members of the New Black Panthers that were found guilty of those charges by a judge and were awaiting sentencing. When questioned about this, Holder said “these charges were noting compared to the voter intimidation historically suffered by MY PEOPLE.”

            2) defends the actions of his Assistant deputy Attorney General, who informs attorneys at the Civil Rights division of the DOJ that they are not to investigate charges of black-on-white voter intimidation, mush less prosecute such actions. This order was the reason that J. Christian Adams, a Senior Attorney in the Civil Rights division of DOJ, gave as his reason for resigning from his job there.

            3) within 24 hours of being questioned by a Congressional Oversight Committee Congressman about his unconcern for being held in contempt of Congress went before an all black group headed by Al Sharpton and asked “When was the last time an Attorney General was TREATED LIKE THAT? When was the last time a president was TREATED LIKE THAT?” Now what is it that Holder and Obama have in common that made that nasty, white Republican TREAT THEM LIKE THAT?

            Yeah, this is the guy calling Americans cowards for not wanting to have an “open” discussion about race relations. Disagree with anything he or Obama has done and if you are white, you are a racist, if you are black you are an “Uncle Tom”. This guy has played the race card so often the spots have worn off.

            Tom tells the truth, I have spouted that there has been voter fraud and get allot of junk on it. How could it not be voter fraud for multiple votes by living and the dead and people who were never registered in the area they voted let alone in the state? VOTING FRAUD WAS RAMPED.

        • Dawn Harsley says:

          There is absolutely no reason not to require a photo ID unless you’re a Democrat. It may interfere with voting for dead people. Their entire argument is a joke. We have to show a photo ID to cash a check, see the doctor or go to the hospital, open a checking account, register for public assistance and buy and sell a house. There is also absolutely no reason why any individual cannot either go to the polls on Election Day or vote absentee. They seemed to have done just fine for years. Suddenly, a month isn’t long enough, Monday thru Saturday isn’t long enough. “It is too much of an inconvenience to register separately before voting”. When I look around the world and see individuals risking their lives in places like Iraq, Afghanistan and now Ukraine, it is amazing just how spoiled we’ve become.

        When the honest trustworthy voters used the rigged voting machines, both of the voting handles were rigged to enter votes only for Obama. And then the public heard of the shredded Romney ballots, and the multiple illegal voting tricks-the woman who voted six times and was NOT arrested, nor the precinct worker who made it happen. The ACORN Group was up to their tricks of illegal precinct voting, too. Our Judicial System is suppose to enforce the laws and should have VOIDED this lying 3rd world election morals. And any US President announcing that illegal border crossers are eligible to Vote, should have been met with handcuffs and given a free ride to jail. Secure our US Borders for sure, Mexico tosses their illegal border crossers into prison.

          I decided that political correctness is the invention of a mind game of total control nothing more nothing less. To be politically correct is to let another person or persons of another race or government entity to control your mind thought and actions so that they the establishment can in fact control certain parts of the society behavior. To force others beliefs on the masses with out show of force. I am not nor will I ever conform to Political correctness it is just BS.

          Well after seeing the video and the imemidation by the County, I would say that they have a plan for development of some kind and gaining the land by intimidation and force. Just plane abuse of power,this appears to be the thuggery tactics that has been carried out by the Barack Hussein Obama regime. Pick on the weaker citizens first, than move on to others. The County supervisor could be in bed with the Feds and want the land for a more sinister reason. Who knows, but I will tell you nothing like what is going on in this county and allot of others in these United States of America in this kind of mass ignoring of our laws and constitution has happened in many years. The first illegal land grab was back in time when the Feds brought troops in to move the Indians off there own land because they had better use for it than the Indians.And the fact that the indians were out gunned had allow to do with the outcome. So are all the American citizens that our Federal government has intimidated into conforming. This is a sad times but if we do not band together and fight for each other the only free society will be the governments. when the feds get the majority of the power, the States had better look out for the State government will fall by the wayside as did there citizens. This is the way of Barack Hussein Obama and his foreign government backers will take over our country for a WORLD COUNTRY UNDER WORLD DOMINATION. WE WILL NOT BE THE LAST EITHER. THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER SCAREY.

      Too many conservatives voted for the libertarian party. Their votes would have won the election for conservatives. If we could band together and vote for a candidate that could win, on the conservative side, we could slowly take back our freedoms. In MT we lost an election by three percent of the vote, and six percent of conservatives voted for a candidate that had no chance of winning. Their excuse is that they voted their belief, or they voted their conscience. Their votes did nothing to save our country from the disaster that is threatening us. Then there are all of the Democrats that do not realize that the party has been hijacked. They are prouder of being Democrats than they are of being Americans.

      I disagree. What it takes it for the Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind to get off their asses and write their representatives, even if they are democrat. They need to stop whining and write letters and call their representatives…EVERY WEEK! They need to study and present facts and logical arguments instead of cutting and pasting rhetoric that is untrue or emphasizing a different part of the truth. They need to stop taking from the government when it is to their advantage and then blaming others for taking. They need to study our government and learn how to send real petitions to the government (not fake ones whose only purpose is for campaign contributions). They need to talk to the other side (not the same conservative media that already shares their views) and convince them by logic, and not immediately alienating them with name calling. Before complaining abut the debt, learn about the budget and offer a plan to balance it. It takes study and work. It is easy to serve in the military (I did so for 10 Years). It is hard to learn about our country, how it works, and to get up and do something about it. For every comment one makes to an article, have you first written to your representative. Stop laying down and whining. The socialist are out smarting you from Agenda 21 to budgets with the aim of destroying our country. DO something about it instead of fantasizing about some revolution.

    • Dawn Harsley says:

      And with the Tea Party they have no chance of winning the WH in 2016. John Boehner doesn’t need the Tea Party. He did just fine without them. In fact, in Ohio, when it came to Republican Party officials, the Tea Party didn’t fare so well this month. Unless John Boehner decides to relinquish the Speakership, it will come down to either Boehner or Pelosi unless every Republican House member goes with Boehner. Remember, it doesn’t come down to which party has the majority; it comes down to which member gets the most votes. If the Republicans split as they almost did in 2012, we could see Fancy Nancy with the gavel; a complete disaster.

Are they telling the truth or are they disgruntled employees out to get someone. Do they have proof or do they just imagine it? I’m not ready to concede to the “blackmail” theory. Roberts was vetted inside and out when he was nominated by George Bush. If there was anything at all to find, the Dems would have found it. Look what they did to Clarence Thomas. There is no way I believe they would not have dug deep enough if there was an issue. They did review the adoption records of the other Judge Bush nominated and found nothing, much to their dismay. Don’t sell the Dems short. If there is dirt to be found, they’ll find it; otherwise they’ll just manufacture it as they did to Herman Cain, the GOP candidate Obama was most afraid of. They brought out every slut they could pay off to lie.

          • Drew Page says:

            Why are “most” kissing the illegals asses? Hispanics are fastest growing demographic in the this country’s population and the Democrats are buying their votes with promises of “amnesty”, so those illegally here can stay and then bring their extended families into the U.S. The Democrats don’t care how much tax money it costs to provide these people with food stamps, rent subsidies, welfare checks, free medical care, education for their kids and the cost of dealing with the additional crime they bring, nor do small business owners looking for cheap, unskilled labor.

            When legal citizens who do pay federal income taxes to support all this, the Democrats call them “racists”.

            I am not a mind reader, I am just one person trying to find a way to preserve our Country and her freedoms, the law of the land and the Constitution that our founding fathers gave us.. Exploding our population with illegals will only expedite the distraction of this country and our way of life. These illegals are nothing like the immigrants that came here legally for the most part. They wanted what we had FREEDOM and a better way of life than what they had in there country of birth. This new wave of illegals are trying to turn our country into there countries of birth with not regards to anyone else. I love my country of birth and want to keep our laws and Constitution. I am tired of the Word RACISTS THAT HAS BEEN BANDED AROUND BY UNHAPPY ILLEGALS AS WELL AS THE BLACK COMMUNITY AS OF LATE.

All name calling will do is prompt those who favor Rand Paul and those who liked Mitt Romney to retaliate by calling you and your preferred candidate nasty names. All the while, the Democrats will be laughing their asses off at the Republicans once again forming a circular firing squad among themselves.

        I urge every Republican to support their candidate of choice by pointing out all the positive reasons why other Republicans should vote for him/her, but not by bad mouthing other Republicans vying for the same office. I hope that isn’t too much to ask.

            All I’m suggesting is that if a GOP candidate you don’t like wins the primary and is the GOP nominee for president that you vote for him/her dispite disliking him or her. Sitting at home and not voting for the GOP candidate will produce a result 10 times worse. A non-vote for the GOP candidate is a vote for the woman who said of the four massacred Americans in Benghazi, “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?”

      I am glad you have found a Republican you can support. But no matter who the Republican nominee for president turns out to be, we need you and all other Republicans to vote for that candidate. You may actively dislike McCain, Boehner and/or other Republicans, but it will do no good to bad mouth them in public. All it will do is create animosity among other Republicans. We need party unity, not a civil war within the party. If Hillary finally announces she will run, she will be unopposed in the Democrat party, with no intra-party squabbling and name calling. If the Republicans persist in this continual name calling and infighting among themselves, we have already lost. America has lost.

      If necessary, Republicans should bring in experts in conflict resolution to help them unite the party. For the most part, I believe we Republicans have more in common than not. Most of the conflicts we have within the party are not so much differences in goals, but in the approach and tactics used to achieve those common goals. These differences can, and must, be resolved. We owe it to each other and to those who want to see America restored to greatness.

  5. VictorLandry says:

    The Democrats embrace extremists like Soros and the Black Caucus but Republican leaders fight a group of decent people like the Tea Party. Why? Because Boehner, Cantor, et al are so addicted to the perks of power, they don’t care if the party suffers as long as they keep their power. They claim Tea Party candidates can never get elected but November may prove them wrong. If it does, they better wake up and smell the coffee or they may be joining the ranks of the unemployed.

      In the past, the Tea Party has backed certain candidates that had absolutely no chance at winning (like the young lady who had to declare in a campaign commercial that she wasn’t a witch). Then again, the Republican “establishment” has backed candidates like the guy who gave his views on “legitimate rape” and a woman’s physiological ability to “shut down” a pregnancy caused by rape.

      However, in the last election, candidates supported by the Tea Party won more offices than did the candidates backed by the Republican “establishment”.

      First step would be to get rid of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner

      • Drew Page says:

        Boehner and McConnell have had their turn at bat. I haven’t walked a mile in their shoes, trying to please the moderates and the conservatives of the party, so I’m not going to criticize them. I believe however, that it is time to give other Republicans a chance to lead the party.

        Bingo

    • Dawn Harsley says:

      Unless the Tea Party begins working with the main stream GOP, they won’t see a majority in the House or the Senate much less the WH. It is time they come to the realization that a Tea Party member and/or an ultra conservative can’t win in a national election. They may take their districts or perhaps their states but without the Independent vote, the GOP is dead in the water. Romney did well with Independents and was stabbed in the back by his own party…..the 3M registered Republican conservatives who didn’t bother to vote. You got what you deserve. Too bad you had to take the rest of us down with you.

      • smilee says:

        The tea party is fast going the way of the bull moose party and will soon be forgotten as they were, just not enough of them to be more than a flash in the pan for a very short while.

        • Dawn Harsley says:

          I agree. They’re losing ground as it is, at least in Ohio where several have lost positions on the Republican Committee in this year’s primary.

          • Don Jusko says:

            The GOP better wise up, it’s not enough to be GOP, their are a lot of RINO’s still in the party. They hate Ron Paul and all he stands for. I hate them and want them cleared out. It sounds like your GOP committee needs some tuning.

        • Don Jusko says:

          That’s BS. The Tea Party is the biggest group of Americans ever gathered. Ron Paul rallied more students with his conservative speeches than were ever counted. You can’t dismiss them troll. They’ll be out when the sun shines, not before. Who want’s to argue with a fool?

          • smilee says:

            You can believe this lie if you like but nothing can change the fact the tea party is dead just not buried as yet. Dream on sucker!

          • lexus alexander says:

            Spoken like a true disparager. Liberals (probably paid by the DNC) love to go down the line of all Tea Party supporters on this blog with their line of crap. They are like a true turd in the swimming pool. When they are on television they speak the loudest and go on and on with obvious lies, ignore the rules of the debate, and make themselves as obnoxious and hated as possible. I don’t know why conservatives such as Fox News even contend and waste their breath on bastards like Juan Williams, fat-ass druggie Bob Beckel, Kirsten Powers and others of their ilk. They goose-step along like stupid O’Bama sheep in their ignorance. He would throw those idiots under the bus in a heart beat. Does that fascist O’Bama even know who they are? I’m sure there are plenty other seldom watched liberal news outlets they can appear on and cause people to turn to another channel because of.

          • smilee says:

            Again ; You can believe this lie if you like but nothing can change the fact the tea party is dead just not buried as yet. Dream on sucker!

            It is people like you who give the tea party a bad name your rudeness and crudeness turns off good people and the reason the tea party is on its death bed.

      • Drew Page says:

        That coin has a flip side. Just as strong conservative Tea Party supporters should be willing to work with “moderates” in the GOP, the “moderates” need to do the same. We need party unity. The name calling coming from both sides of the Republican party has got to stop.

        • Dawn Harsley says:

          I agree and the most offensive is the RINO rhetoric put forth by conservatives and the Tea Party. Unfortunately on both the right and the left we have gotten away from the middle when people of both parties actually got things done. The difference is the Democrats right now hold all the cards. Unless and until the GOP gets its house in order, pushes things Americans actually care about such as jobs, national security and the economy, as well as Benghizi, the IRS scandal while presenting the facts, not the rhetoric, a Democrat will be in the WH in 2017. Where the Democrats, I believe, are making a mistake is pushing their “war on women” agenda. Most women, like their male counterparts, are interested in jobs, the economy, feeding their families and national security. Certainly they will reach some of the “libbers” but by and large it isn’t on the top of their priority list.

        • Don Jusko says:

          It’s not going to stop as long as the infection persists. Getting the conservative replacements into office is the only answer, forget the “party unity”, get rid of the disease.

        • conductor1 says:

          It’s not going to stop. The GOP has an establishment to protect. The Tea Party wants a smaller establishment. It’s really the same problem that the left has with the Tea Party, or that most unions have with management — they don’t want to give up any perks.

          • Drew Page says:

            Well it sure as hell won’t stop if no one calls for it to stop. I can’t make the two factions of the GOP come together. All I can do is try. Maybe it won’t work, but maybe if enough of the GOP base demands this, it might work. If it doesn’t, we are all screwed with another four to eight years of what we have today. I’ll be damned if if I am going to sit back and not even lift a finger to try and get party unity to get a Republican Senate and a Republican president. It may not be the Republican I want, or the one that you want, but any Republican would be better than Hillary.

            If you want to give up and say “nothing is going to change” that’s your choice. As long as your at it why don’t you just join the Democrat party and quit pretending to give a damn about what happens to the country.

          • conductor1 says:

            Hey there pardner, you’re confusing my prediction that the GOP a) won’t unite with Conservatives, and b) will likely run the same kind of campaign and lose again, with how I FEEL about it. Besides voting, just exactly how do you plan to create party unity? What I’m telling you is you have to do more than vote if you expect the GOP to change. I personally am involved in the movement to hold a constitutional convention. Tell you what. I’ll become a Democrat when Hell freezes over due to climate change.

          • Drew Page says:

            Maybe we both are on the same page. I have been doing what I can to urge GOP party unity on threads like this one. I have contacted my Congressman and Mark Kirk asking each of them to do what they can to end the intra-party bickering and name calling. I have posted my views here and in other sites calling for Republican leadership to make a strong effort to unite the factions of the party. I understand that some in the GOP are so conservative they will never agree with a “moderate”, but that should not stop Boehner, McConnell, Graham and McCain from trying to bring Tea Party supporters into the fold and it should not be an excuse for them to write off the entire group of people who support Tea Party goals.

            It is tempting to call Republicans who aren’t as conservative as I would like them to be “RINOs”. It is also tempting to call those “true conservative” Republicans who didn’t vote for Romney because he wasn’t conservative enough, spiteful fools who would rather see Obama in the Oval Office than Romney.

            I for one would support a constitutional convention like the one called for by Mark Levin. I have e-mailed Levin and told him that I support those amendments he has proposed. Perhaps this would be a proposal that both moderates and conservatives could agree on. Let me now how I can help.

          • conductor1 says:

            The thing that motivates today’s politician above all else is money. Money=reelection, and it funds all the jobs in the fundraising network that is connected to the GOP. So to me, without term limits, it’s become a high-falutin welfare program. The base is getting old and they’re not attracting young replacements in droves. As a conservative, registered Independent, I will vote GOP in 2016. But I have told them that until they join with Conservatives and commit to a tougher campaign, I will not donate as I have in the last two elections. The other thing I want is a review of what went wrong in 2012, and a plan of what they will do differently. Donors and voters deserve this so we can believe we are not wasting our time and money again. All the GOP related literature I have received by mail and email since 2012 has the standard verbiage and request for money, with no mention of what they will do differently. I don’t know about others, but it isn’t acceptable to me that they run a “lesser of two evils” strategy and push it to the limit. They look too much like Democrats these days to get away that again in 2016, but I feel the only thing that will for sure motivate them to change course is money. They were out-fundraised in 2012, so they may be more responsive once there’s a candidate. We’ll see. What I do now is go to GOP meetings in my district and tell them I want to see unity with Conservatives and a plan for what they will do differently before I’ll donate. The other thing I ask for is a pledge, which can quickly separate the professional politician from the public servant. These folks are very skilled at confusing the public about their voting record.

          • Drew Page says:

            Conductor, we must be on the same RNC mailing list. I too support term limits, but doubt any in Congress will. I get endless requests for contributions to the RNC and from the Senate republicans. They keep sending me their “priority surveys” with questions geared to evoke guaranteed responses from conservatives. Most of those questions are phrased to get respondents to answer “YES” to each question, right up to the point where you are asked if you are willing to donate (or would you rather see the Democrats continue to ruin our country.)

            I have responded to these “surveys” with personal letters back to the RNC telling them I won’t donate another dime until they unify the party and stop attacking those who support Tea Party goals. I told them their last presidential primaries included too many candidates, started too early and lasted too long. Further, they turned into a ‘circular firing squad’ with the candidates shooting each other, much to the delight of the Democrats and the shame of the GOP. That can’t be allowed to happen again. I have made it clear that I won’t contribute anything until I see them do these things. Money talks and B.S. walks.

          • conductor1 says:

            So true. Since the GOP doesn’t read these blogs, I’ve been thinking about a website where people can join a petition. It would let the GOP know donations are at risk and why. I recently moved from Texas. The only politician who didn’t constantly send formula money requests was Ted Cruz.

          • Drew Page says:

            You have just given me another reason to like Cruz. I also like your idea about a website where people can join a petition. I don’t know how many in the GOP visit Mark Levin’s website, but I have supported his call for a constitutional convention and the additional Amendments he proposes.

      • conductor1 says:

        Actually, the Independent vote is not the problem. Romney won the Independent vote. Where he lost was among moderates. Dems do a great job of demonizing the GOP in the minds of moderates, and the GOP, as shown by McCain and Romney, won’t fight back. Today’s GOP doesn’t mind losing if they can keep their jobs by raising money from wishful supporters. If conservative voters didn’t see a difference between GOP and Dems, it’s no surprise some didn’t vote. The GOP knows that In the last two presidential elections, there were more D than R voters, and they can see where it’s headed. The Tea Party has the unfortunate problem of trying to have principles and stick to them. Dems don’t have any. Repubs abandon them in order to get elected. Support for Obama’s policies is down among Independents and moderates, but Dems will figure out the correct BS to demonize the GOP and entice those groups back to Hillary. If Christie is the candidate, the whole cycle will repeat, and Conservatives will be the whipping boy once again.

        • Dawn Harsley says:

          Principles don’t do you any good if you don’t get elected. I don’t like Chris Christie but if he were the candidate, I would support him. It is imperative that the entire GOP get behind whomever the candidate may be in 2016. Not everyone will be happy with whatever choice is made but certainly it is better than the alternative. This in-fighting is playing right into the Democrats’ hands and it is time to stop it. The problem with the Tea Party candidates elected to the House is that they came roaring in believing they could get what they wanted immediately, which is not realistic considering they are up against a Democratic majority in the Senate and a Democrat in the White House. Do the math. Even if the GOP gains the majority in the Senate and keeps the House, we are up against a President who cares nothing about the Constitution and will simply write yet another Executive Order to get what he wants.

          • conductor1 says:

            So Tea Party candidates should break their campaign promises and wait six years to pursue less govt, less spending, and more allegiance to the Constitution. Instead, they should accommodate to get reelected, they should watch socialism advance, and they should assume that a GOP President and Senate would “undo” all the bad stuff Obama did.

            Christie will LOSE to Hillary for the reasons I explained. The GOP does not look better to the majority of voters, which are now D’s. And the tipping point is now close in Texas. THAT is doing the math. You said it yourself, even if the GOP gained a Senate majority, we’d be
            up against a President who would follow in Obama’s footsteps or worse.

            The GOP can’t win the presidency as currently constituted. If you could see the 2016 LOSS now in a crystal ball, who would you vote for? Here’s a crazy idea — the GOP gets behind Conservatives and for once gets ALL non-D votes.

          • Dawn Harsley says:

            The problem is they won’t. They won’t get the Independent votes; people who are not far left or far right. Christie isn’t going to get the nomination. He has too much baggage. I’m looking more towards Allen West, a conservative but not an “in your face” conservative. I would love it if Condi Rice could be convinced to run on the ticket but I doubt if she would. West is former Military, well liked by the men and women who serve and is smart. Rand Paul can’t win, Sarah Palin can’t win and Michelle Bachmann can’t win. The difference between the strident Hillary and the professional, brilliant Condi Rice would be amazing.

          • conductor1 says:

            The left hates West and will vilify him just as they did to drive him out of office. Condi Rice won’t run. As sensitive she was about being a commencement speaker in the face of a few protesters, she wouldn’t run for President. Who’s left that would be palatable to moderates?

          • Dawn Harsley says:

            They’ll vilify anyone who runs against them anyway. So far, I don’t like much of anyone although I do kind of like Rubio. I really like Jeb Bush but I don’t think he’s electable. His record as Governor of FL is outstanding and Hispanics like him. It’s a tough one.

          • conductor1 says:

            Yes, any candidate the GOP endorses will be disparaged. If there’s no baggage, the left will invent some, such as Christie and the bridge. And the MSM will pull out all stops to insure the socialist express keeps rolling. Knowing there is no perfect candidate, and no candidate that won’t be smeared, the most logical course is to support someone who can explain how socialist policies are leading to ruin (especially for younger moderates), and who won’t take any crap from the left during the campaign. The GOP hasn’t tried that yet. It played genteel, double-checked its focus groups, spent your donations, kept their jobs, and lost. GOP is currently a stigmatized brand to moderates, and moderates will determine the 2016 elections. There never has been a time where party affiliation is less likely to indicate the way a person will vote. What’s important now is not the number of registered I’s, D’s, and R’s, but the growing number of moderates emerging within those groups due to disaffection with the Parties. Dems will at least try to appeal to the moderates, but I haven’t seen any sign that the GOP won’t ignore Conservatives again. If the GOP repeats its standard messaging to I’s and R’s, it loses again, and we’re likely past the point of no return.

          • Don Jusko says:

            Rubio isn’t even a citizen if I remember right. West could do it, he has the right mailing list. Jeb is in the wrong family.

          • Don Jusko says:

            If Rand, Saran or Michelle got into the finals they would win. Rand may do it with his stick-to-it-ness. Where did Rice come from? The boonies? She has less of a chance the Hillary.

    • Dawn Harsley says:

      And my opinion is that unless the Tea Party works with moderate Republicans they have no chance of winning in 2016. Let’s be realistic. A Tea Party or an ultra conservative won’t take the Independent vote, something that is needed in order to beat the Democrats. There are more registered Democrats than Republicans. That is a fact. Independents for the most part liked Romney and gave him their support. A hard liner will not get that support. Let’s quit on the social issues such as abortion, which is the law of the land, and same sex marriage and concentrate on what people are most interested in…..jobs, jobs, jobs, a sound economy and less debt. I can guarantee you abortion and same sex marriage are at the bottom of their list.

      • Don Jusko says:

        Less debt is the only thing that made sense. Balance the budget, stop spending money you don’t have. Audit the fed. These are the big things, jobs, abortion and fags are just talking points. Get rid of the central banks, get back to real money.

  7. Doc says:

    You morons at the GOP need to get together with the TEA Party members and reach an accord. You are fighting a common enemy and need to learn to get along. Those of the GOP that seem to be fighting the TEA Party the hardest all seem to be RINO’s. Your like a bunch of spoiled brats on a play ground.

    • Chandler says:

      No they are fighting the common foe and that would be WE THE PEOPLE FOR THE POWER THE DEMORATS HAVE. WE THE PEOPLE HAVE ALLOWED BOTH PARTIES TO BECOME CORRUPT. THE REPUGS AND DEMORATS ARE NO DIFFERENT, IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY AND THE POWER.

      • Drew Page says:

        OK, Chandler, what’s your solution? As one of “WE THE PEOPLE” that you keep referring to, I vote in all elections where I am eligible to vote and I resent being told by anyone that I am somehow responsible for corruption in the two major political parties. I have never been paid to vote for a candidate for office, paid a bribe to a politician or asked any favors from one. I vote for the person who identifies himself as having the same, or similar values as my own. Now, that person may be lying to get my vote. It has happened more than once. But what is our alternative? We are typically given a choice of potential candidates for an office in a primary. Maybe our choice gets the nomination and maybe he/she doesn’t. The other party does the same and we end up voting for the choice of our party or, not voting at all. Write in candidates and third party candidates never win in national elections.

        With what do you want to replace the Democrat and Republican parties? By any other names opposing points of view would gravitate to the same dichotomies. There will be one group sympathetic to liberal points of view and another group sympathetic to conservative views. Would you advocate for no political parties?

        Personally, I don’t believe that we will ever get money and power out of politics. All we can do is try and minimize their impact it by imposing Constitutional term limits for every elected office in the U.S. From dog catcher to President, no one should be able to hold an elected office for more than eight years per lifetime.

        • Chandler says:

          Just how many times must I say TERM LIMITS, TERM LIMITS,TERM LIMITS FOR ALL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND POLITICIANS AND JUDGES.
          TERM LIMITS ARE THE ONLY WAY WE CAN TAKE BACK OUR GOVERNMENT AS WELL AS CONSEQUENCES FOR BAD BEHAVIOR AND BAD ACTIONS . That is how we will take back our government. That is how we the people can return to our laws of the land and our constitution and take back control of our borders.

          • Drew Page says:

            I AGREE COMPLETELY. No one holding elected office from dog catcher to the president of the United States should be able to serve in that office for more than eight years in their lifetime. But the $64,000 question is how do we get the politicians who make the laws to vote for term limits? I believe that there are a few holding elected office that would vote for term limits, but not enough of them.

            I would support a constitutional convention, such as the one called for by Mark Levin. At that convention I would support a constitutional amendment limiting the terms of any elected office to no more than eight years per lifetime. We have too many Representatives and Senators who have made serving in elected office a lifetime job. Many holding those offices would argue that it’s up to the people to decide how long they want their representatives to hold office. I would argue that political parties and big campaign contributors decide who is going to be our representatives. When your party picks the candidates for office, supports that pick election after election and distributes the campaign funds to support that candidate, the voters are left with only one choice vote for the devil you know, or allow the devil you don’t know to win.

            I would also support a constitutional amendment that would make legislators and government employees subject to all laws passed by Congress and signed into law by the president. That would include Obama Care, Social Security, affirmative action laws, sexual harassment laws and laws prohibiting insider trading.

          • Chandler says:

            You want to know something worse not only are the politicians living off our dimes they spend all there time figuring out how to screw over the legal citizens. They use illegals and passing hidden laws within a bill that has nothing to do with the subject matter. We need to have a legal group that oversees what the politicians on both sides of the isle that will inform the general population of what is being discussed . There should not ever be a closed door meeting with Demorats nor the Repugs ever. they work for We the people and must be held accountable for there actions to a man or woman. The Politicians an dJudges must have there feet to the fire for thee actions or lack of actions. If they are caught plotting behind we the peoples back we should FIRE THEM. We must go through the Senates and the Congress by laws of operation as well as the Judicial branch and it will take scholars as well as lay people to straighten this mess out, but we can if we have the will to do it and soon. We must start with small victories then move on. We do not have a whole lot of time left before there will be nothing we can do.They the Politicians have already paid to have family members take over after they left or even before they leave . Like Daughters and sons and the corruption continues .

          • Drew Page says:

            Once again, I agree with you. Politicians from both parties do this. They wait until someone introduces a piece of legislation that they are pretty sure will pass and then they add on amendments to that legislation that have nothing to do with it. Sometimes these amendments are for things they want for their own constituents (or their lobbyists) and sometimes these amendments are created to kill the bill to which it is attached, containing additional provisions that are totally unacceptable to the lawmaker(s) who proposed the initial bill, forcing them to withdraw their proposed legislation. It’s a damn game, and the bastards playing it are doing it for their own advantage.

            We need Legislative reform that prevents lawmakers from adding on amendments to legislation proposed by others. Instead of adding on amendments to someone else’s legislation, they should be forced to draft separate legislation of their own that contains what they wanted and have that separate legislation stand on its own merit.

          • Chandler says:

            I am puzzled as to what we can do after the government has placed so much restrictions on the legal citizens and given so much of our freedom to themselves families and friends as well as the illegals.
            I do know we must force the closing and security of our borders and remove all illegals with there families . I do not care where the children were born, Illegal is illegal if your parents even one is illegal so are the children. If that sounds harsh then so be it. No other country allowes free access to there country as does our government.This is going to be a long long battle. I just do not hold out much hope

          • Chandler says:

            I would gladly support what I felt would change the coarse our government has put us on. However it was allot of constitutional amendments and false laws that the politician and Obama and Clinton and others that have used admendments to change the face of the costitution and our laws of the land for there own gain, and corruption. Even our Judicial system is corrupt and going against our laws and the Constitution. If we do not have any more power than what it appears to me to be able to return our country to what our forefathers meant it to be then the only way anything will change is to force oBAMA TO RESIGN THROUGH HOOK OR CROOK THE SAME WAY HE GOT INTO OFFICE. And change the face of our our government,law officials and court system to SECURE OUR BORDERS, remove all illegals with there children. Stop the illegal act of letting illegals enter just to give birth and legalize there non citizen child to a citizen, just because they crept into our country illegally. The more the illegals the worse our country has become. If they want to be a legal citizen then come in the right way and do the right thing. I am fine with that but no illegal should be rewarded for breaking our laws and get citizenship NO ONE.

    So-called republicans like Boehner, McCain, Collins, McConnell, etc need to be replaced as soon as possible. They are rinos, virtually democrats hiding as republicans. Nothing like a good traitor within your own party, and these people have it down to a science. Cantor, et al forgot where they came from and how they got there, now being so open that they have identified themselves as traitors to the party. They are now showing their arrogance, real arrogance and the deceit that they have operated with for years.

    • Chandler says:

      Funny how corruption and total power work hand and hand with a government out of control. No term limits allow the corruption to grow and grow. How do you think that these old timer politicians have become millionaires? It was not by accident it is by design and greed. Term limits are the only way to stop this madness, just hope it is not to late.

        Wish EVERYONE could read your post here. It is exactly what we need to stop these thieves, whores. They no longer represent us but themselves and they are so arrogant to actually confirm what we are saying is needed. The 100% retirement pay was the straw that broke the camel’ back. It just showed where they are with themselves and the country, with the country taking second fiddle. Pledging to eliminate this 100% deal would be an automatic winner for someone running for office a democrat being the originator of the 100% deal.

      Both the other parties started out with good intentions now look where we are at. Corruption,Corruption, Greed and power hungry.

    • smilee says:

      Go ahead but you would still be a bunch of losers and win little.

      • OSAMA OBAMA says:

        Or said party could give voting rights to illegal aliens, give away free cell phones, put thousands more in section 8 housing, ebt cards, welfare, release more convicts……the list is endless!!

        • smilee says:

          you are still be a bunch of losers and will win little

          • OSAMA OBAMA says:

            Name calling……Libturds are ranting, frothing at the mouth, cry baby, P.C.,distribute the wealth, nanny statist maggots……..

          • smilee says:

            What name calling?? The TP is a losing party thus a loser. That is just a fact not name calling. Seeing as you accused me of it i will be one, here goes, you are a radical stupid idiot, that should make your statement true.

          • OSAMA OBAMA says:

            Get back in the kitchen where you have relevance.

          • smilee says:

            LOL I wish I could say you have relevance anywhere but you do not!! Such a loser!

  12. Bill Catering says:

    WHY WHY WHY!

    • Chandler says:

      POWER AND MONEY GREED THAT IS WHY.

  13. Robert Dalton says:

    The answer is to support the Tea Party completely. Show Boner, Cantor (won’t?), McCain, Rove and the other brigands that it is “We The People”, not “the party” whom they were elected to serve.

  14. VanceJ says:

    Without the Tea Party the Republicans may as well fold their tents and go home.!!!!!!!

  15. Bob Marks says:

    I think their is no hope left, what I saw this week end should tell us all something, we have no one to stand up and fight , every one wants change but don’t want to do anything , its all over for the good guy

    • Chandler says:

      YOU SIR GIVE UP TO EASILY, is not your freedom and that of your family worth fighting for. It is this very action to a bad situation that emboldens this CORRUPT GOVERNMENT. Start fighting for your family and there very survival and morality of our country.

      • OSAMA OBAMA says:

        VOTE!! Write your congressthug!

        • Chandler says:

          I have voted in every election that is LEGAL for me to vote in. The key words are LEGAL to vote in. I have e-mailed, Faxed, and Written to no Avail. It is like all of our entire Congress on both sides of the isle and the government and judicial system are deaf and blind by choice. But I still persist in making known my dissatisfaction and that they do the right thing. Not much more we can do but to rise up and that would take the majority not individuals. I do not think that that will happen allow in our country now are not patriotic nor ever fought for this country and her freedom,laws of the land or our beloved Constitution. YET I HOPE FOR IT EVERY DAY.

  16. Philip Allen says:

    Everyone that doesn’t like the mainstream Gop needs to call Boehner and Cantor and tell them to resign or you want them impeached. until we get the RINO”S out of the Republican Party the Liberal Democrats will keep destroying our Country and our Liberties and Freedoms. It’s not just Boehner and Cantor…How about John McCain? time for all then to go!

  17. SoCal88 says:

    The future of the GOP is the Tea Party and these guys know it. That’s why they are running scared.

  18. Buster Handcock says:

    Boehner and Cantor must be sent to Kenya (for ten years, minimum), and then be placed in INDONESIA for their entire lives.
    (I bet the next ‘Speaker and flunky’) will NOT be so sure of themselves!!!

  19. Frank W Brown says:

    BIG BROOM time for any RINO up for election in 2014, sweep them ALL out, and return common sense to our government!

    • MRitter says:

      The TP candidates are the real RINO’s.

  20. Nicodemus says:

    The Tea Party made the mistake of trying to take-over the GOP from within instead of starting a genuine, 3d party which would have appealed to Americans of both parties……or was it a mistake? Maybe the same thing that happened to Justice Roberts happened to the Tea Party leadership. Like Jessie Ventura says….the only solution is to stop electing Democrats and Republicans…..

    • smilee says:

      Either way they are losers, just not enough public support.

      • MRitter says:

        No, the fact is, that most people do not subscribe to the tea party policies. That’s democracy.

        • smilee says:

          True it is democracy but that still leaves the tea party losers as they are such a small minority overall.

          • MRitter says:

            We are in total agreement there. They cost VA the gov, lt. Gov, and AG. The TP could not win in a primary so they pushed thru a change and went to a convention to nominate their candidates. There Lt Gov candidate was a nut case. There Gov was a right wing extremist ideologue. The AG candidate was even further right, but not as vocal. They lost all 3.

  21. Dealer says:

    Look we are Americans and can never give up the fight and let the bastards win……no matter how bloody it gets we MUST continue to fight……

  22. Lefthandedcigs1 says:

    So the GOP is again helping to elect communist traitor liberal democrats. They are 1 in the same. The old GOP is DEAD !

    • MRitter says:

      Your reply is one of sheer ignorance. The RINO tea party should form their own party. They are not the party of Lincoln, Roosevelt, or Reagan. As for being patriots, they’re as patriotic as Benedict Arnold….

      • Lefthandedcigs1 says:

        Party names be damned, read your constitution then compare the actions of the GOP, DEMs and the Tea Party values and then you might make an intelligent comment!

        • MRitter says:

          There are many who would totally disagree with your interpretation of the U S Constitution.

      • smilee says:

        Reagan was not the party of Lincoln and Roosevelt (I assume you mean teddy), Lincoln and Roosevelt were both progressives, Reagan was not.

        • MRitter says:

          By today’s TP standards, Reagan would be a liberal and couldn’t be supported. The simple facts: Reagan raised taxes, tripled the national debt, grew the fed govt (much to grow out of the recession), and he negotiated with the dem’s. A lot of people tend to overlook reality.

          • smilee says:

            You have to negotiate with the other party when you lack total control which is majority in the house, 60 members in the senate and the presidency in your party and that has only happened from July 2009 until January 2010 in recent times, thus Obamacarec was born. When you lack that power compromise is a necessity or the gov comes to a halt as we have seen and then everyone is hurt. That is the real reality not your self created idea of reality.

          • MRitter says:

            Actually your facts are in error. The dem’s never had 60 members. Also, 2 of them, Kennedy & Byrd were absent much of the time while in the hospital. I would also point out that there were several senators, like Max Bacaus that are very much to the right center. As for negotiating, I would also point out the lack of actual negotiation and the threat from the TP rIght, lead to the credit downgrade from S&P. Read the report from S&P and they squarely put the blame on the House.

          • smilee says:

            True they were often absent but not always and there were 60 caucusing with the democrats. There were 60 votes for final passage of Obamacare and 39 against and one not voting and you are right, Kennedy was no longer senator, Kirk was and Byrd voted on Obamacare, the missing vote was Senator Bunning from KY. Bacaus voted yea on Obamacare, that vote was not considered right of center. I agree with your last sentence. Franken was the 60th vote after he came to office in July and the following Jan after the special election in Mass. Brown won leaving the democrats with 59 caucusing with them.

          • MRitter says:

            Baucas is the cause for much of the headache. He, along with several other senators (on both sides) are hip deep in the pockets with the pharma lobby. He is the one person most responsible for the mess of how the ACA is funded. Btw, Kennedy did vote for the ACA. However, he did die before it was actually finished. When he died, Scott Brown won his seat. However, the Senate had passed the ACA as a gutted House bill. The senate them passed a bill under “reconciliation” that went back to the House. Needless to say, it was convoluted. Had the Senate changed the House bill, it would not have had the 60 votes when it go back to the Senate.

          • smilee says:

            I did say final passage on the ACA not previous votes on it. The law is in two parts one needed 60 votes the second to amend appropriations in a second bill was done in the house and only needed 50% + 1 to be passed under reconciliation rules in the senate and was done this way to avoid a cutting off debate vote on it and that vote was after Brown won. It was a house bill not a senate bill. The second bill was called Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 it originated in the house was amended by the senate under reconciliation rules and re passed in both houses in March 2010 and then to Obama who signed both into law.

          • MRitter says:

            Since you mentioned the ACA, learn a little history. Had Nixon not resigned when he did, we probably would have single payer healthcare today. He understood the problem. He the repubs actually wanted to negotiate on healthcare, we could have had a great product. We spend over twice as much per capita and live shorter lives than most industrialized nations, we cover a smaller percentage of citizens also. The fact is, the repubs didn’t want to give Obama credit for a fixing healthcare. If one looks at each part of the ACA, most people are for the vast majority of it.

          • smilee says:

            I doubt it would have been single payer with Nixion, he wanted some form of reform but regardless it did not happen, he very much supported private insurance. I agree with your take on Obamacare and it would have been even better if the GOP would have been involved instead of checking out on health care.

          • OSAMA OBAMA says:

            U.S….300 plus million…..a large majority on the dole. Other groovy indust. nations have less to cover and more that financially support the socialism.

          • OSAMA OBAMA says:

            He also bankrupted the U.S.S.R.’s war machine and brought down the East German Wall, ended the Iranian hostage crisis simply by being inaugurated. Today, we downsize our military and hang curtains.

  23. MRitter says:

    The Republican Party should do what they can to expel the RINO Tea party. They’re right wing extremists. They cost the republican’s control of the Senate. The 3 stay officers from VA were lost to dem’s because of the Tea Party, especially the Lt Gov candidate, who was a nut case. The dem Gov candidate was a weak selection but still won. We could list the sen candidates in past elections like DE, OH, MO, & IN, all lost to nut case Tea party extremists. The tea party should form their own party (which in the general election isn’t highly thought of by most people independents) and see how they would do. Not very well over all..

    • MRitter- this is NOT getting us anywhere. its not about Demrat or Repuk, its about the entire Gang.Gov. Fire them all an lets start over with new fresh conservitive educated people who care about WE THE PEOPLE! Nothing else will work with these corrupt an greedy fools. Stop lying to yourself an pull your head out of the sand box!

      • OSAMA OBAMA says:

  24. evelyn123456 says:

    Rinos are being purchased by big business who are doing well under this Administration. I believe it’s a little short sighted because Obama, his Administration, the Democratic Party & the socialist media are going the way of pure socialism. Obama was educated in it in Indonesia and alligned with them ever since.
    Income equality = socialism pure and simple.
    And the Pope seems to be climbing “on board,” although he’s “hedging a bit.”

    • evelyn you are correct, we need to change the way $ influences laws an regulations. Take away the damage these rinos has done for 160 yrs. Downsize the entire Gang.gov. All Fed agency’s are bloated with self-serving lazy lying neckties! Untill WE have done this—- nothing will help. We Have A Muslim In The WH ! WHY?
      Biggest JOKE ever dupted upon the American people! Believe That !!!

    • smilee says:

      Equal opportunity is not income equality and no one is asking for income equality so you perceive this all wrong. K-12 education of Obama was only 1/3 in Indonesia in a catholic school and all his post ed was in the US so that statement makes little sense and is not based on fact. The people of the world are identifying in large numbers with this Pope but we know your in a small minority with little influence on any thing. .

      • OSAMA OBAMA says:

        TROLL!

        • smilee says:

          YOUR SPEECHLESS!! LACK OF ANY INTELLIGENCE??

          That statement coming from a real moron is funny!!

          • OSAMA OBAMA says:

            Why respond to a zero??

      • evelyn123456 says:

        I don’t believe there is one person in the conservative movement who would not be for equal opportunity, none! I know I am very strongly for it.

        However, your leadership did not say: “equal opportunity.” Not that I have heard.

        Yes, you are correct, he was not totally educated in Indonesia but that doesn’t mean that is not his mindset. Consider his book: “Dreams From My Father.” Now do you have any idea what the mindset of his father was?

        He didn’t call the book “Dreams From My Mother” who also ran with the socialist croud. No, I’m not going to lead you by the hand and you wouldn’t believe me anyway, so if you’re interested in becoming educated in the real Obama, do your own research — not in your usual media. Obama has a huge cadre of people in IL whose only job is to deflect anything negative about him.

        Bill Ayres claims to have written Obama’s book. Do you have any idea who Bill Ayres is? Bill Ayres also helped launch Obama’s career in the IL Senate.

        Since, obviously, you listen only to the progressive/socialist media you have no idea what Obama is really about because the liberal media never says anything of consequence that is negative about this President.
        The Democratic Party sent 50 lawyers and newsmen to AK to investigate a VP candidate but not one to IL to investigate Obama. They didn’t turn up anything that was not already known about Sarah Palin.

        Yes, people all over the world are identifying in large numbers with this Pope, but that does not make him perfect. I agree some things he is doing are very impressive. Or does that make him perfect because large numbers of people identify with him? You make it sound like he is correct because large numbers of people identify with him.
        How do you feel about Obama lying to the American people about the Unafordable Care Act in order to get it passed as well as almost everything else he says. “I didn’t know about it until I read it in the newspapers,” and on and on and on. Quite a guy!

        • smilee says:

          His father left when he was two and he seen him once when he was ten so I doubt he had much impact on his upbringing. Your very good at quoting all the hard right talking points and propaganda and you ignore the real truth. With Obama you use what the far right has defined him as and not on reality or how he defines himself. I listen to all sides and then make my own conclusions and most times am I find the conservatives to be the biggest liars in the US today and most of what you say hear is not the truth especially about Obama and Obamacare. No man is perfect not even the Pope but he sure has inspired good in many people and is a real asset in world today.I am not catholic but he is a man to be looked up to. I am in my seventies and have followed politics since I was 16 and Obamacare has been the one law that has been lied about the most in my lifetime even more than Medicare was when it first became law. When you talk about lies and deceit on this law the far right is by far the bigger liar on it and it is not a perfect law but as the doctors from Mayo said when they endorsed it before it was passed it is a good start and an improvement over what we had and they are correct as Health care in this country had been getting really bad for generation before Obamacare and was the motivation for it. Much of what has been blamed on Obamacare was there for well over a decade before Obamacare and even though it extends it to most and covers everyone we have a ways to go to make things fully right. You very seldom hear the far right talk about the good things in it, like no yearly or lifetime limits, annual out of pocket limits, no cancellation of policy’s when health conditions arise, no denying coverage for pre exiting conditions, guaranteed coverage on parents policy until age 26 which kept many from losing insurance, the 80/85 rule which has reduced the cost of premium increases as it was the smallest annual increase in 2014, the smallest increases (4% national average) in over a decade. You apparently do not like all these good things in the law or you choose ignore them, maybe you are not even aware of them as you probably only read the bad things said about the law and ignore the good being said about it. There are two ides to every story but you here only are talking about one side. You also make a lot of assumptions and assumptions almost always lead you to the wrong conclusions. This seems to be your problem.

          • evelyn123456 says:

            First of all I am 77 years of age so don’t pull age on me.

            Also there are two sides to everything — so loosen up.

            Talk about “assumptions,” regardless of what you say about Obama’s contact with his father and his going to school in Indonesia, he DID entitle his book “Dreams From MY Father” so that evidently had one of the biggest impacts on his
            life. He has never written another book about any other subject. Now Bill Ayres said he wrote the book for Obama. Do you have any idea who Bill Ayres is: And publicly admitted, unrepentant terrorist?

            YOU Ma’am, have no idea what you are talking about as far as what the right has said about Obama Care. You obviously don’t listen to conservative news. Almost EVERY conservative commentator has stated that there are some issues in Obama Care that should be preserved such as preexisting conditions, leaving children on parent’s policies, portability of policies, etc.

            You obviously listen to what progressive/socialists SAY about Obama Care rather than listen to what conservatives actually say about it.

            Our issue goes beyond that such as the beginning of socialized medicine and the things in the ACT that go far beyond health care. Socialism has never really worked well of the people and YOU support it.
            That our Congressmen admitted that they didn’t even read it before signing it is criminal. Nancy Pelosi: “We have to read it to find out what is in it.”

            Furthermore, that Obama lied approximately 24 times about what it really does to us indicates that they knew it wouldn’t pass if the public knew what it said. Obama: “You can keep your doctor and policy;” it will save families $2,500 a year” “It will reduce health care costs,” etc indicates that they were
            “pulling the wool over our eyes.”

            Many doctors have promised to retire because it further reduces their income to levels that are not commensurate with their required education if not repealed, WILL create a further doctor shortage and rationing. YOU, as well as,
            I on Medicare will be at the bottom of the list of importance.

          • smilee says:

            I do read the conservative news as only one of many kinds of news they seldom tell the truth. I actually read the whole Obamcare law and the whole court opinion and this is the best source of info you apparently just bought into the conservative propaganda and lies. This law is about health insurance regulation and not socialized medicine and the Constitution allows for this law and I do not believe the Constitution allows for socialism so you are wrong on that too. No congressman said they did not read it Pelosi just said we had to pass it before the people would know what was in it and many still do not know including you so she was right on that but conservative propaganda has misquoted her as well as well as what Obama has said. Medicare is the bet insurance plan available today and much better that the pre 65 crowd has access to. You been snookered buddy or you are going senile.

          • evelyn123456 says:

            If you really read and listen to conservative news, which I doubt, YOU are brain washed by YOUR President and YOUR liberal/socialist news media.
            That Obama lied over and over,. 24 times, about Obama Care proves that he lies about that and almost everything else he is the most uninformed President to ever grace that office: “I read it at the same time as you did in the news media.” He has no clue what his Administration is doing!

          • smilee says:

            The conservative news is telling lies on this and you believe them. Read the law and the court opinions on it and you will find that out but you will remain in the dark if all you rely on are conservative lies. You are the one lying and sad that you do not even know it as you are convinced these lies are true.

    • taldock says:

      No. they are not socialists. They are fascists. Notice that you said it. “Big business is doing well under this administration.”
      The democrat party has been hi-jacked by the fascists and the base is not smart enough to realize it.

  25. longtail says:

    I would propose a total rejection of the Republican party in order to start a new Tea Party that espouses true Tea Party values and runs Tea Party candidates completely separate from the Republican party.

    • Chandler says:

      That might well be the only way but why not the Demorat Party after all they were the ones who pushed a illegal on us for President. You know that they knew what they were doing and so did the federal Judge that signed off on the sealing of Obama’s life as if he was not even born. I think that the Repugs have learned well from there corrupt counter part in crimes The Demorats.

      Nice.

  26. Tom Wittlief says:

    Just from this grouchy old skeptics perspective, I saw the Conservative vote split among SEVERAL candidates who refused to bow out of the last presidential election, despite it being Glaringly apparent they were not going to win, allowing Premier Obama to commit a second term. Conservative Candidates ! If you see the many polls indicate that you will receive only a few percent of the vote, have the Graciousness to GET LOST, and allow any conservative, no matter their popular political lable, to get into office !

  27. ganymede1 says:

    It’s not just the Republican Party that’s against the Tea Party, it’s more than 90% of the country that has had enough of your negativity, nihilism (look it up!) and ignorance.

    They have defined the reason why Conservatives should donate only to Tea Party or Conservative organizations. If donations go to the GOP, people like Boehner will receive the benefits for his reelection.

    I have the list of rinos that are lunching with Republican Mainstreet Partnership Pac in Florida that are out to “get” the Tea Party members. Boehner, Collins and McCain and Kirk are the Speaker and 3 Senators; together with 25 rino representatives. They are undermining the Tea Party that put them in office and in Boehner’s case put him in the Speaker’s position. They are just so eaten up with socialism that their brains have rotted and they are now hand-in-glove with the above organization, which, btw, has been contributed to by Soros!!!!! As if we couldn’t guess.

    I said this before, time we really start thinking third party, when you have Senator’s who like Mitch McConnell come out and said, the tea party need to have our noise punch and we need to crush the Conservatives in the primary’s. Will they win ? odds our they will, for they had 50 million from the National Chamber of Hypocrites business men in Washington D.C. to fight Conservatives. Ronald Reagan got to be turning in his grave. The Party that once stood as Conservative is now nothing more the Socialites for the Democrats.

We all know there are two parts of the GOP, the elite that have been there and that are getting replaced by conservatives and the current conservative replacements. The left likes to omit this fact. Maui is getting paper trail voting by giving the original paper that is used to digitize the vote back to the voter. You deserve a paper trail also.

    Republicans are cutting their own throats and destroying their Party in condemning the conservative views- which is the only thing saving our Nation today! Disrespecting the mouth that fed them! They are “Now” Republicrats” and are under the bus of politics as We see their demise.
    Sweeten the “Tea” for a Victory! Don’t mummer, fume or fuss
    But hold up a moral standard in integrity for Us’
    While the Elephant and Donkey slide under the Bus.
    Seek out honest Christian patriots, that you can trust!

    Boehner and Cantor are just phonies and turn coats who will kick anyone to the curb or support anyone who will further getting them paychecks or keep them in office. Both need to go, sooner than later. They did not care about the people who pay them.

    Put up a high fence on the border of Mexico and stop this illegal entry into the USA…Bring back the Constitution and Bill of Rights and do away with anyone who goes against them. If we don’t stand up for our rights, no one will. I am scared to death of a civil war and people that think that is the way to go, don’ t know how bad that would be, but that being said, if we can’t get our country back to our civil rights and freedoms the way it was then we should do whatever we need to do to get those things back the way they were years ago…

    I find that this Country has allowed the worst crime that the Demorats could have ever perpetrated on on all the people in America legals and illegals alike. To allow a illegal no force a illegal down our throats knowingly of America. The Demorats knew that Barack Hussein Obama was not even legally in our country let alone run him for President through the Democrat Party the party of give away. Yet this man was rocketed to the highest position in America the most powerful position and not even a legal citizen.They the DNC were more interested in Power and greed and graft that they had become accustom to. The only thing that they could think of is taking the power back from the RNC so they used the first Black man to gaine control of the government that never had a real job in his life, This is criminal, allowing Obama to seal his whole life by using a Federal Judge probably controlled by the DNC. People we are in trouble our country is fast becoming a World country OF ILLEGALS and that is NOT A GOOD THING.The Politicians and Judges have ignored our LAWS OF THE LAND AND OUR CONSTITUTION for FAR TO LONG. If we do not stop this madness and soon we just might fade away in the future.

    It is just nonsense that the GOP establishment has declared all-out war on the tea party, especially since there isn’t really a tea party. What we do not need is the idiot types like the dopes who ran for senate in Delaware and Missouri the last time around. They hurt both the GOP and ‘tea party’ brands.

    I’m voting straight third party in November – again. Why elect a Democrat with an R behind his name. I will not participate in pulling a handle for the lesser of two evils. Why cut off my nose to spite my face? TRCKMA!!

    Vote these Rinos out of office and put true American conservative patriots in office. Our Republic depends on it. Our freedoms demand it.

    The republican party leadership is an absolute JOKE led by old, rich cowards (except against their own). The republican joke of a party will never wn a presidential election again. But, the old guard leadership will always be filthy rich.

  50. Mike Failla says:

    It was politically expedient for them to call themselves “republicans”. They didn’t have the gonads to call themselves democrats or liberals or (GASP) socialists! But they are and that is why they are so tapped into the money stream from the shadow government. That is why the republicans feed on their young. Disgusting. I have no use for the left but they circle the wagons don’t they?
    By the way on political correctness! I for one have had enough of the touchy feely crap. Get the hell over it okay? Say what you mean and mean what you say. If it bad its bad if its good its good. Lets grow up and quit the playground games!

    To survive, the Tea Party must get organized. There needs to be leaders and a formal platform instead of a “grassroots” mob with no direction. They need to be motivating people to vote with undeniable facts and not spun marketing. They need to provide solutions instead of complaining about the status quo. Start by asking how can we balance the national budget? You will see that entitlement programs including SS and Medicaid must be cut. We must settle for less from the government. We must demonstrate that it is better to pick fruit and chilies and roof houses in the hot sun, instead of relying on illegal immigrates to do the dirty work for us. We must show our plan as to how we can eliminate or reduce welfare without causing people to starve. Get organized, get a plan.

    Who or What is the Tea Party?

    Who the Tea Party is may be an unanswerable question. What it is can be answered easily. The Tea Party is We the People of the United States of America. The Tea Party is not a political party per se; it is a movement, a groundswell of distaste for the policies and dirty politics of the two major political parties in America.

    The Tea Parties movement is a Judeo-Christian coalition seeking to halt the rampant and devastating overgrowth of our federal bureaucracy, a large number of good Americans protesting peacefully the failure of our servants to carry on the business of our country in accord with the rules set forth in the world’s greatest document of governance, The Constitution of the United States of America.

    Party loyalty, factionalism and the spoils system have replaced the loyalty to country and the loyalty to We the People our elected officials swore to protect and defend. The Tea Party members are dedicated to changing the way business is done in the halls of government at all levels. The Tea Parties are politically and fiscally conservative, trustworthy and God-fearing.

    Tea Party members and adherents are opposed to government handouts, fraudulent taxation, Executive power grabs and overreach. Tea Party members are in total opposition to Obamacare, to federal spying tactic against the citizens of this nation and to any amnesty programs for illegal aliens. The citizens belonging to or in agreement with the Tea Party movement are firm supporters of the Second Amendment and opposed to any treaty with the United Nations that dares invalidate any part of our Constitution.

    As a dues paying member of the Tea Party, this writer is appalled by the multiple failures of the United States Congress to Impeach and then try the faux president, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey for the Crimes of Treason and Murder. The failure of the Congress to exercise its oversight responsibilities vis-à-vis the office of the executive has permitted an extensive overreach and power grab by Mr. Obama. The use of executive orders versus congressional legislation has become the order of the day.

    Any and all members of the United States Congress who criticize the Tea Parties actions are demeaning We the People, their employer and boss. That is sufficient reason to replace them sooner than later. Loyalty to party rather than to the constitution and the Rules of Ethics is sufficient reason to expel numerous members of both congressional houses.

    In essence, the organized Tea Parties are carrying out the oversight responsibilities of the Congress and will, in the midterm elections of 2014, oversee the departure of those blatantly delinquent in carrying out their sworn duties as servants of the Republic.

    Particularly disgusting to all Americans are the tactics used to shut down debate in the United States Senate. Senators Reid, Schumer, Durbin and McConnell are equally guilty of this type of political shenanigan. Mr. Reid’s statement that “The majority rules,” an echo of Mr. Obama’s earlier statement, is indicative of the attitude of these imperious idiots who are expressing their kingly attitude. This country is supposed to be “led” not “ruled.”

    I believe the Tea Party organizations, i.e. We the People, will see to it that major changes are made in this bloated, inept and inefficient bureaucracy we call our government.

    To the readers who have not become dues paying members of the Tea Party, please join or make a donation to the cause, it is for your good and that of America.

    When the TEA Party movement began, it was all about no new taxes.
    When Sarah Pallin campaigned for Karen Handel, who was running for Georgia’s GOP nomination for governor, I broke ties with them.

    My reason for leaving was simple: Handel was an outspoken supporter of infant murder … known to those, who lie about it, as abortion, birth control, etc. … and the one thing I cannot, in good conscience abide is a politician, who doesn’t support the sanctity of life.

    When I contacted Pallin’s camp, asking why, I received no answer; I cannot bide with that, either. The only way I would support Pallin for president, now, is if she were the lesser of two evils and the other evil was a Muslim!
