Ron Paul: Attacking Tea Party Is Not A Good Plan For GOP


Boehner has moved to attack at least four “Tea Party” Congressmen and marginalize them by kicking them off committees. An unnamed source claimed that the Congressmen deserved it:

“a GOP leadership aide told NBC News that the four members — Michigan’s Justin Amash, Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, Walter Jones  of North Carolina and Arizona’s David Schweikert — were ‘clearly not team players.’”

Right. Because Team GOP has been such a wonderful gift to loyal Republicans, obviously anyone who won’t “play ball” with them must be given bench time. Unless, of course, the entire starting group are a bunch of losers and we need a replacement team. Perhaps Amash, Huelskamp, Jones, and Schweikert are hoping that voters will select others like them and kick Boehner and his ilk off the team.

Ron Paul has recently stated the obvious. He said,

“They’re going to punish freshmen legislators? If you’re looking for dissension, then you’re going to get it… These congressmen will never cave. They’re going to get the support of the people … They will become heroes.”

How can anyone argue with this?

But I think the most telling remark Paul made was his characterization of why some people get persecuted by their fellow Republican Congressmen: “You get punched for having sincere beliefs.”

What I don’t understand is how Boehner and his fellows cannot understand that they are burning down their own house. Whether candidates are sincere or lying, the voters want to believe they are choosing a candidate who has principles other than simply staying in office for personal gain. To publicly advertise that anyone who believes in a balance budget and an unencumbered economy is simply going to be excluded from “the club” is to invite being kicked out of office. Boehner has got to realize that he can’t just pretend to care about the looming debt crisis and continue to not do anything about it.

As it stands now, Boehner has pretty much publicly demonstrated who in Congress belongs to the future of the Republican Party, assuming the GOP has any future at all.

As far as I can guess, Boehner hopes to see Democrats keep the White House and plans that Republicans will be forced to vote for, and lose with, the kind of candidates we have had to put up with for the last two election cycles. His value to the ruling class will be in diverting Conservative energy into supporting non-Conservative Republican candidates.

But I don’t think Boehner is going to get his way. The more desperate the American economy gets, the more Boehner will have to openly work to put down Conservatives in Congress. And the more Boehner’s evil work becomes visible to all, the more he is going to enrage conservative voters.

My hope and prayer is that 2014 give us a new GOP in Congress.

    ——————————————DEMS RAISE TAXES—————————–
    SHOCKED and stung all at the same time (CA Notice arrive today from HR)
    Date: 2012-12-10 SEE NOTE AT BOTTOM
     
     Tax Increases for All in 2013?
    Federal Tax Increases Beginning in January 2013, the largest single year tax increase in U.S. history – approximately $500 billion – is scheduled to take effect. While most of the tax increases are due to the expiration of long-term tax policies, such as the Bush tax cuts, and short-term economy stimulating tax cuts, like the temporary Social Security Payroll Tax Reduction and the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) “fix” also included in this calculation is the imposition of a new set of taxes that are part of President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, (known affectionately as Obamacare).
     
    STRIPPED AGAIN —————- >California Tax Increases: In addition to the looming federal tax increases, the centerpiece of Governor Jerry Brown’s budget proposal is a seven-year $47 billion “temporary” tax increase. These new taxes are embodied in the Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act of 2012 ballot initiative that requires the approval of California voters in November 2012. According to California’s Legislative Analyst’s Office, revenue estimates for the initiative vary widely – from $6.8 billion to $9 billion for 2012-13 and from $5.4 billion to $7.6 billion, on average, in each of the following five fiscal years, with lesser amounts in 2018-19.[9] Additional revenues generated by this tax increase would be considered General Fund revenues for the purpose of calculating General Fund Proposition 98 obligations.
     
    ???????? HOW DO THEY DO THIS ??????? To achieve these revenues, personal income tax rates will be increased for seven years  AND the state’s sales —AND— use tax rate will be increased for four years. Specifically, the personal income tax portion of the proposal will add three new personal income tax brackets with rates above 9.3 percent. These new rates will be effective for seven years beginning January 1, 2012 through the end of the 2018 tax year for both single and joint taxpayers.
     
     
     
    ====>THE LETTER: Good morning – As of today, the temporary “Payroll Tax Cut” which reduced the employee tax share of Social Security – is set to expire December 31, 2012.  Currently the employee tax share is 4.2%. When the current legislation expires, that rate will go back to 6.2% on FICA wages paid after January 1, 2013. What does this means to you? You will see a tax increase of 2% on your FICA wages on the paycheck starting January.

    • Burke02

      @protectliberty Did we forget who made the Bush tax cuts temporary and not permanent? None other than John McCain, another Rino.

    • dmttbt

      @protectliberty 
      When social security is one of the main things that was going broke the president thought it would be a good idea to give a tax break by cutting the amount that had to be paid in for social security.
         I surely can’t be the only one that noticed this. I am on limited early social security and the biggest dilema is trying to figure out which medicare plan is correct. I have a desk full of paper work such as one from Mutual of Omaha that sent me a message saying they will send me the information ]. I called their 800 # and asked why they didn’t send me the information instead and they said they will have an agent to contact me. I said that I can almst read and if I can’t figure out what their plan is I can call them and then they can have an agent tell me what I don’t understand or better yet print the information where people can read it and understand it. The biggest thing for people of medicare age is which of the complicated plans to choose and there are several. It is a disgrace to take advantage ofd people Medicare is suppose to help. Medicare isn’t free and neither is social security. We paid for it and they have set it up and stolen the money and generally screwed it up just like everything else the government does.@

    Almost all elected officials have to be passed by AIPAC before election.  Therefore they are beholden to the status quo and the ongoing rape of the US by the big banks fronted by the Federal Reserve.  There are only a very few elected officials who escape this.  Ron Paul is one.

  • texanna

    Boehner ensures Republicans are irrelevant.  I know I am done with that party.

    • Medic2

      @texanna As am I. There are a few decent ones in there, but they are the ones who arent team players. Not enough of them to cause a problem for the RINOS.

      • texanna

        @Medic2
         So what we do is take those from the Republicans, and add them to new party that includes Constitutionalists, Libertariean, and any other conservative entity willing to compormise some in order to form a NEW and truly conservative party.  I know I am willing to compromise on some social issues in order to get politicians who are fiscally conservative and who vote as constitutents demand

        • Medic2

          @texanna I agree with you. Its time to put the GOP out to pasture. Liberty party sounds good to me.

        • texanna

          @Medic2
           Hey – I think we’ve had this conversation before!  With DeMint at Heritage, we have a really good chance to get ‘er done.

    • dmttbt

      @texanna
       I was calling myself an independent but I voted republican. I already knew that we were getting screwed by both parties but I had to take the lesser of two evils.
       I think it is time for a third party president and senate and congress. We have suffered too long. Federal government should handle national defense and that is all. How utterly stupid is it to have the federal government handle education or anything else that should be handled on the local level.
        WE have to stop our country from going in the wrong direction. We may have to decide to vote for mickey mouse or donald duck, but we must settle on one of the two because we can show the actual vote that way.

      • Medic2

        @dmttbt  @texanna And that is where the states need to step up and say no. SOme are beginning to, but we need more.

        • texanna

          @Medic2  @dmttbt
           Completely agree.  Fed’s are liimited by the Constitution and we need to take back ALL of states power.  As far as I’m concerned, CA and some of the New England states can become part of the D.C. and go to hell in a handbasket.
           
          And my cat, Sophie, would be a more responsible leader than Ofelon, so I’ll happily put mickey mouse or donald duck…or the roadrunner in office!  Beep!  Beep!  (My all time favorite!)

        • DollyT

          @Medic2  @dmttbt  @texanna You are 100% correct here. The gains we made in adding more Conservative Governors to a number of states will pay off.

    The Speaker and his “club” Republicans lost this stolen election and they aren’t doing shit to trace the fraud in the voting machines owned by Soros. I have been a Republican/Libertarian for over 60 damn years and I hope someone will kick Boehner’s ass out of the speaker’s seat and send face lift Pelosi into exile. @

    • JohnGaltTexas

      Indeed. Fraud was rampant and flaunted and NOTHING is done about it.  No, Romney probably wasn’t the best candidate (is there one?), but he sure beats having Ted Bundy for a prom date.

  • http://www.sternresolve.jaycenrigger.com Jaycen

    Boehner isn’t listening to people like us, he’s listening to other establishmentarian Republicans who agree with him.
     
    I wish Tea Partiers (I consider myself one) and Libertarians would stop calling for “balanced budget ammendments”.  Those are nonsense.  There’s always a way around those.  My state has a balanced budget ammendment in the Constitution, and we got around it by ensuring that all spending is balanced by a 25 year bond.  Spend now, pay down the road!
     
    You can’t legislate good behavior.  You get good behavior from your reps by staying informed and involved.  Our focus should be educating America to the principles of limited government and the original arguments for the Constitution.  We should be constantly quoting the Constitution (that means learning it) and talking about how what’s happening today doesn’t fit our Republican ideals.  Not Republican as in “Party”, but as in “our country is a Constitutional Republic”.
     
    We have to be open about ending Socialist Security and Medicare, and doing it in a way that encourages private charity.

    • AntiCommieCat

      @Jaycen   The easiest way to learn the Constitution is to read the book, The 5000 Year Leap… Principles of Freedom 101, by  W. Cleon Skousen.  This is the book President Ronald Reagan wanted taught in every American high school, but ted kennedy and his ilk stopped it from happening.  Easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to thoroughly learn the Constitution and the vision of the Founders.  Please, please get this book, and give copies as Christmas gifts.  We must arm ourselves with knowledge in order to defeat the communist / progressives enemies of America.

  • nexgenesis

    The only bloc of people that the Republican’s (rino’s) feel that they can attack is the Tea Party.  If they come against the liberals they will be attacked, instead of being praised.

  • Medic2

    It is too bad that it took the state this country is in, to get people to listen to Ron Paul. Even if you dont agree with him 100% you have to admit he has been and is right about the state of affairs with the economy and the corruption that is going on. Rand may not be his father, but he is still one of the few who is fighting for us.

  • PatSias

    Huuumm, Boehner is some what soft spined and might actually benefit from the tea parties strong conviction, For some unseen reason Boehner aves in when he should not, nothing BHO has to offer is good for our county. What the GOP should rrealize is that teaming up with the tea party gives more leaverage…..Most of the goals are toward the same out come…saving our country and upholding the Constittution….The ultimate is to get rid of the creature in the WH standing together this can be accomplished.

    We need to find good, conservative candidates for 2014…..we CAN replace these long-term incumbents who have forgotten why there were elected.  There are a lot of good people out there who can support the traditions of the American people, encourage non-dependence on the government and help States take over programs such as education and environmental issues.  We do not need more taxes…we need to eradicate the spending habit the liberals have placed upon us…stop REAL spending, not PLANNED spending.  I read where the government hired 35,000 employees in November..some may have been state government, but that’s ridiculous!!!   The waste and corruption in this “administration”  must be stopped!!!  If we can change the power in the Senate in 2014, it would definitely restrict their unconstitutional actions!!!

  • Carl E

    Okay folks…here’s my take on what the heck happened on November 6th! 
    As we all know, millions of tea party voters either voted for a third party or stayed at home which put Obama in the White House for a second term!  I think I know why.  First of all you have to remember that Romney was the Tea party’s 4th or 5th choice to become President Elect and only became so when all of the “better” candidates dropped out of the running.  Many “members” of the Tea Party held their noses and voted for Romney only because he was the best of what was left.  For a long time, news columns and polls questioned why Romney wasn’t polling higher and couldn’t figure out why the election looked to be so close.  News stories started suggesting that the Tea Party voters were not sure about Romney…afraid that he was to “moderate” and would not stand up to the other side in order to set things right.  As time went on he started winning over the Tea Party voters by doing well in the debates and his speeches seemed to start showing his Conservatism.  When he held a rally, his audiences were huge!  The polls reflected that Romney was finally starting to pull ahead.  It started to look as if the Republicans would have a large turn out and propel Romney to a win…until about two weeks before the election.  Romney hit the Tea Party right between the eyes with a two by four!  By  targeting the independent voters in his speeches he started to remind his audiences that as governor of a very liberal state, the only way he got things done was to “reach across the isle” and “work with the opposition!”  COMPROMISE!  THIS was not what the Tea Party voters wanted to hear!  THIS is exactly what they were afraid of!  The Tea Party wanted to put someone in office that would not “work with” the opposition…but would do everything in his power to DEFEAT the opposition and overturn everything that Obama’s administration has imposed on our Government!  After hearing Romney make speech after speech within the two weeks prior to the election, that he would “reach across the isle” to work with the Democrats “to get things done”…well…that was the straw that broke the camels back!  Millions of Tea Party voters dropped Romney like a hot potato and either stayed at home or voted for 3rd party because he was not Conservative enough for them…and they were MAD!!  I can understand and even sympathise with the reasoning here, but I don’t agree with the action.  I felt the same way as the Tea Party voters…but I voted for Romney anyway, just to keep Obama out of office for another term.  This is my explanation of why Obama won a second term.  Romney did it to himself!  The Tea Party and the American people are ready to vote for a conservative candidate who will fight the Liberal agenda (not work with it) and take this country back, in order to honor the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence!  Mark my words…With a candidate who believes as this, and who is filled with patriotism and love of this country in 2016…you will see  a turn out of conservative voters that will amount to a REVOLUTION!  Marco Rubio comes to mind…

    • OldAzPatriot

      @Carl E
       I agree with most everything you said up until the very last sentence. Marco Rubio is constitutionally ineligible to be president and he was pushing for a republican version of the “Dream Act” for the Illegals. If we are to take this country back we must have someone who is fiscally responsible. The “Dream Act” would be just one more entitlement program that we cannot afford. I would offer, instead of Rubio a ticket of Jim DeMint and Michelle Bachmann.

          @adamenochnoah 
          Your link took me to “The Constitutional Meaning of Natural Born Citizen.”  I cut and paste the following from your link…
               -Native born citizenship: A native born citizen is one whose citizenship derives from the facts of his birth, and who becomes a citizen at the moment of birth. In both US and British law, those born within the sovereign territory of the country OR born to parents who are citizens (subjects) of the country when the person is born are native citizens (subjects.) Native born persons are said to have “birthright citizenship.” …and also…
               -Natural born citizenship: A natural born citizen is one whose citizenship is not granted by law or by any act of a sovereign, but inheres naturally in the person from birth according to principles that don’t depend on laws or decisions of a sovereign.
          Why is this so hard for someone with SO much history knowledge to understand?  Using this reasoning, Rubio IS qualified to run for Presidential office in this country.  Marco Rubio, born May 28, 1971 in Miami, Fl…Natural/Native Born Citizen!

      @Carl E  When Mr Romney failed to pin down Barry on Benghazi- and actually let that Democrat shill help out that “nice guy” with erroneous information- that showed RIGHT THERE that Mitt was not going to FIGHT. He wasn’t going to REPEAL OBAMACARE, he wasn’t going to BE CONSERVATIVE because Mitt is a LIBERAL.. Then you have that RINO Christie giving Barry a boost that he clearly didn’t deserve- and you see that the GOP as presently constituted is Democrat Lite
      - so let Barry have his 4 years- and in 2016 CONSERVATIVES will WIN

    • Guest

      @Carl E Certainly the GOP knows it is done and they are still trying to figure out why.  For all the review teams that have studied this, the answer is simple.  Americans will not elect a non-Christian as President.  Other offices have a variety of religions but the Top Job must show respect for Christianity.  We’ve had some liars but at least they knew they better say they were Christians.  Mormons are NOT Christians, they use the name of Christ for their covering and they are a finance-oriented political military cult.  Check their history.  Obbba claims to be a Christian but shows no confirmation.  No indication of how he is teaching what religion if any, to his kids.  Communism is the religion of Communists.  At least we have more time to deal with Obbba and we won’t stop until we get all his records and who groomed him and directs him.  American Patriot Party will emerge by that name or another.  Our Founding documents direct us in dealing with tyrants and driving out evil from our government.

    • JohnGaltTexas

      Add demoncRAT rampant vote fraud as the icing on the cake and you’ve summed it up pretty well.

    • LAYOR

      @Carl E
       No shot, Carl. By that time even more people will be dependent on Big Government and you will be asking those same people to vote for someone who believes in Smaller Government and welfare reform That`s a dream !! Not reality. People do not vote themselves out of “free stuff”. From here on out the battle cry of the Democrats will be  “oh sure the rich are paying a little more than before but not nearly their fair share”!! That will see the piggies come running to the voting booths to make sure those making over 250K pay a “little more”. No politician will ever lose by telling his constituents they will get more and it will not cost them a dime more than the ZERO taxes they are currently paying.

  • OldAzPatriot

    Normally, when an oppressive dictatorial government takes over there is only one political party running things. That would be a tough sell to Americans who value their right to vote and have a say in how things are run. Of course the answer then is to have two political parties that stand for the same thing thus giving voters the ILLUSION of a two party system. In my opinion that is precisely what we currently have. Boehner has demonstated repeatedly that he is quite happy to give Obama anything he wants. Those of us here in Arizona’s 5th District elected David Schweikert to represent us because we believed he would do his best to get our federal budget under control. Apparently, Rep. Schweikert and the 3 others were doing their best to fulfill their promises to their constituents. We in the 5th District take this quite personally and would like a full explanation from Boehner and the Republican steering committee as to why these for gentlemen were removed. Apparently, being “conservative” doesn’t fly with Boehner and the RNC. It is time for Boehner, Cantor, and McCarthy to be removed in the House and McConnell to be removed from the Senate so we can get back to a REAL TWO-PARTY SYSTEM once again.

  • fedupinGA

    Previously in MANY cases, Ihave voted to vote AGAINST someone,because I had no one to vote FOR. I
     would have voted for a Alabama Garbage Man for President to avoid Obama being elected a SECOND TIME.
    Thisis not a cut to Romney or Ala.I would like to see Romney in office.
    . The GOP do not need opposition they are doing too good a job screwing up on their own with NO HELP from OBama. Democrats is the opposition party, I thought ??
    Otherwise,give me a reason WHY I should vote GOP next time,if this is what you call leadership ?? and a organized politiocal party. This starts with UPPER LEADERSHIP in the GOP. Someone has to fight the Liberals on their own level,even if it  means getting downa nd dirty like they do. Two Presidential elections later, and see what Mr. Nice Guy and fighting among yourselves has done for you and the country.Do your job, or I will vote against anyone to get the cURRENTLY elected , incompetent crooks  out.office. The GOP is becoming such a joke, Obama not need much
    help,just wait on the GOP to self-implode! No wonder Obama smiles all the time !next election time to clean house.

    • Brian Hill

      I to would have voted for the garbage man over Obama,However i ask, with what you have seen Romney do and how he has acted AFTER the election do you still think he would have been any better” i am very surprised and angered at this man who really showed his stripes after the election. NO cojones at all, and principals YEA RIGHT! makes me ill!

  • LiveFreeOrDie

    With a two-party system firm;y entrenched, there is very little choice for voters as it is. It is like going into a eatery and getting a menu with Burgers and fries or Meatloaf as your choices! I want chicken- sorry- how about some pork chops- nope, this is your choice- now ORDER (VOTE) So when the Tea Party comes along and offers a Different Choice- well, this is what happens— VOTE ALL RINOS OUT in 2014

  • Brian Hill

    To HE** with all the parties! I say that party is what has killed this land! how about just “WE” as in “we the people” No party to mess with, just what is right and what is wrong. The ten commandments say all we need to go on!  First wipe out the million or so pages of “law” we have bastardized to the max without doing away with the bad. Common sense! and WE that is what we need. Time to go back to the basics and start over.
    I am NOT saying this in a religious way, In fact I am anti religion at this point as it to, has been corrupted. Give us some great men (or women) as judges and some common sense based on the ten principals (commandments)  that make up most religions and what have we got? WHAT WE STARTED WITH! It worked then and can work again. To hell with party we can all get along just fine without the sell out that is party!
    I will leave this comment at this, anger is in the way of good thinking right now. But we all need to not be so concerned about work and things that keep us all from protesting and get our priority straight and get out and DEMAND! peacefully in mass that this STOP NOW!!!!!!!!  
    I mean it folks we all need to gather our selves and do SOMETHING or we will have no work, or country that we will want to live in.

    • OldAzPatriot

      @Brian Hill
       I think you are on to something. We need to have a national day of protest. Those of us that work must have one sick day or vacation day that we can use for a national protest day. This is our future folks.

    • DollyT

      @Brian Hill It’s not the Parties its the people in it.  We need the two party system for checks and balances.  That is why the true Democrates should take back their party as well.  Both sides used to be able to present their views on an issue and that work “together” to form a conclusion that both parties could agree to and what was best for the Country and not the singular party.  It is not a matter of “I Win” and “You Lose” its a matter of the blending of the contributions of both sides for the good of the Nation.

      • JohnGaltTexas

        Used to when both sides were at least within eyeball view of the centerline and semi-rational. The left has now gone screaming completely over the guardrail. There is no compromise with this class of leftist traitors – for them it is a zero sum game, winner take all, loser gets punished. They are insane, bloodthirsty and out for vengeance.  They will settle for nothing less than our total defeat and subjugation. Throughout history, this is how all leftists climb to power, go insane, kill millions who don’t agree, and destroy their nations in the process. Don’t think for one second it can’t or won’t happen here. The parallels between this thugocracy and history are terrifying to see.

      • texanna

        @DollyT  @Brian Hill
         Two party system has nothing to do with checks and balances which is what the three branches of government are SUPPOSED to have.  However, with Boehner and the RINO’s selling out conservativism, the Dem’s having the Senate, and Roberts doing his worst – there are ZERO checks and balances.  Fact is that the House holds the purse strings and can refuse to fund things – like the UN, and Egypt, and Palestine, etc.  These are some of the things you guys should write Boehner.

      • pop40

        @DollyT  @Brian Hill
         The Democrat as a party no longer exists, it has morphed into the progressive party and the “so called” republicans want to go there also. The true conservative is really a Constitutionalist, now all our reps (LOL) want is to line their pockets.

  • DollyT

    When these Good Old Boys ccme up for re-election they had better either announce they do not choose to run again or face the humility of being replaced by another Tea Party Candidate.  We will take back our Party and it once again will be the Party of Lincoln.  Dems should do the same thing and take back their party.

  • ArlaineBryant

    It’s time to remove the RINO’s like Scott Brown in Massachusetts. He’s didn’t last long. If we could get rid of the voter fraud, which killed Allen West in Florida, we could have changed direction. Do you reralize that every state that had a phot ID law in place voted for Romne?. And you had to have a photo ID to get in to the Democrat convention!!! IT’s not that hard, but then Holder and Obama would not have been able to commit massive voter fraud.

    Please, Ron Paul may have Republican after his name, but Republican he is not, did you see him endorse and campaign for the Republican Candidate?  NO……How many Paulites voted for the Libertarian candidate , etc etc etc, please do not drag the GOP thru the dirt on Pauls shoes……

    • cdl123

      No many of the Ron Paul People obstained from voting, just as that Johnson followers did. Childish people who even though the primaries were over decided to not help keep Obama from reelection. A no vote was the same as a vote for Obama. I do not believe these people currently have any right to complain about the state of things and the direction the libs are pushing the country in since they chose to obstain. Had they supported the best chance at that time, we might be looking at a better future. Ron Paul never threw his support behind the party candidate. That does not say nice things about Paul. Childish behavior for not getting their way will now likely keep any conservative from being able to turn things around in a positive way.

      • texanna

        @cdl123
         You are correct about Paul.  I have no clue how many Libertarians or TEA Party members abstained from the vote because they didn’t like Romney.  I do know that those who failed to vote for Romney – whether or not they liked him and no matter how they disagreed with him as the candidate – helped elect the Felon.

      • Another Guest

        @cdl123 Actually it speaks volumes to his actually caring about the people,and not just a party.Romney aligned his self with obama on most of the issues.He was willing to go to war at the drop of a hat,and sacrifice more of our military for wars we shouldn’t be in.He would have granted a form of amnesty to illegals,or at least let them stay with out penalty.Why would we want another obama for eight years?Four years from now,if,and only if the Republican party changes direction,and stops aligning itself with democrats,and stop doing the little dirty deeds to their own,maybe they will have a chance in four years,and hopefully they wont be trying to elect the same old losers,and the ones that aren’t eligible like Rubio.Bottom line,Ron Paul was correct,and all you people downing him are in denial,still.

        • LAYOR

          @cdl123 If you think that entitlements are big now what do you think they will look like in 4 years? Instead of 47 Million it will be 60-70 Million on the dole. And we all know the takers are never going to vote fo “that other guy” known as the rich white Republican. There is not a Republican as far as the eye can see that could be Hilary at this point in time. There has to be a total overhaul in thinking. You cannot expect to win the Latino,Hispanic,black,or Jewish votes by doing the same thing over and over and without at least 25% of that total voting block outside of NY and Ca the Republicans won`t stand a chance. Just ask a Republican what their platform is after they lost and they don`t have a clue and they can`t begin to put it into words.

        • cdl123

          @cdl123 I’m sorry but you are very ill informed about the facts. You have no proof he would go to war at the drop of a hat, and frankly what do you do with people, many who have lived here and had children born here? Do you know how expensive it is to ship them all back home? Oh we’re broke and you would do it out of principle? That is intelligent. Not. I simply believe they keep putting the cart before the horse, but never getting to a permanent solution. And Romney is one of the most honest out there. You people have lied about him as much as the left. I guarantee you have been listening to a bunch of wackos as well. They twist the fact’s as much as any other group. He was in no way another Obama. And they are planning on running Hillery next. The way they have embedded people into the entitlement programs it is going to be difficult for ANYONE to win over her next time. ESPECIALLY a RON PAUL or a Libertarian. They do not represent the majority in thought of the conservatives. Not even close. Ron Paul is a nut job whiny baby. Actually Rubio is eligible and may stand somewhat of a chance. But since you want to use the term losers, yup. Ron Paul is one of them. He ran how many times and never garnered more than 5%. It is not principle to abstain from a vote and say I don’t like this guy either, it is being a cry baby and having a temper tantrum when that decision allow’s someone that really wants to tear the country down to do it.

      • trustygma

        By far the oldest candidate in the race at 75, Ron Paul is suddenly a top contender. He has a lot of younger supporters, mostly because he favors legalizing pot, and  He wants to legalize all drugs, including heroin,adopts the sort of extreme intellectual positions that have also drawn college age kids to “pure” philosophies like Communism and Ayn Rand’s Positivism for generations. You know, “clean” uncompromising positions that get rid of all those messy human feelings and complexities, & ETC

        • american2american

          @trustygma You are so well informed I’m in awe of your obvious in depth researching.  That Ron Paul wants to do all you say here must be true because the “conservatives” said so about the Constitutionalist, the Statesman, the only one of them all, who’s age did not prevent him from out biking all the other candidates and he practiced medicine at no charge to those on medicaid and medicare to do his best to not contribute to the national debt.  yeah, you are brilliant.

    • american2american

      @trustygma You are dense trustygma.  You are blind obedient to the right ‘side” or possibly the “left” side of the two headed lie.  You probably say things like “he is a racist” or I don’t like his foreign policy,”  don’t you?  You know not even a grain of sand’s worth what you are talking about, just an obedient matrix dweller.  Wake up, be objective, think critically in other words turn off the radio and the tv and start searching the net.  You are very late in waking up.  It is hardly excusable.  Keep your lame fed opinions to yourself long enough to find out if they are true, you are too lazy to do the work to find out so instead you “trust” media whores.

  • AnneMMcLaughlin

    The GOP obviously feels that if you have values shove them in a closet, get with the program and become a RINO. Its time for Conservatives to stop supporting the GOP in any way. They will still put forth their choices ignoring any input from conservatives.  If Conservatives refuse to vote with the GOP they will lose.  Conservatives are screwed either way.  Blacks vote as a group and Progressives spit on them immediastely after they vote. In short they are just children who can be used over and over again.  Conservatives need the GOP to know we won’t play the part of children.  Time for a Tea Party American Party.  Don’t vote if selling your soul to either of these groups is required.

    • american2american

      @AnneMMcLaughlin Don’t vote if you can’t even think of the constitution as high priority.  There is a reason men and women were willing to risk their lives and many were lost, for our inheritance w/in the contents of our freedom documents.  That we ignore them and use words to replace constitutionalist with such as “conservative” is a game media and other enemies of our constitution have cultivated for decades.  The table was set for Obama and he wasn’t elected, not this time for sure, it was fraud.  He is ineligible for the office anyway.  Every politician remaining silent on this is complicit and as responsible as Obama.  Silence is consent and it is complicity in this area.  We have been betrayed.  Support the constitution with our lives our fortunes and our property, for future generations are powerless, we must do our duty to the future or we will be even more deeply enslaved but future generations will never have even the dim hope we now possess.  They will be locked in, microchipped, slave driven, animals.  We owe them to refuse defeat and to Assume Victory.  Starts with unity, repair the damage of the deliberate divide.

  • jayman777

    Bout time the republicans wake up and give us a conservative candidate. I have always voted for the republican candidate as the lesser of 2 evils, but i got fed up this year with the GOP and wrote in Ron Paul. The GOP has become a bunch of liberals who change their rhetoric during election season to sound like conservatives to get the Christian vote. Truth is, most of them don’t have a voting record to back up what they say they believe. Except Ron Paul, of course, which is why i wrote him in. His voting record matches his talk. Mitt Romney did not have a voting record that matched his talk. He invented obamacare, and also had a pro-choice voting record.

    • american2american

      @jayman777 I wrote in Ron Paul too.  Even my 90 year old mother did.  She refused to vote for a snake oil salesman.  If she can see it so can those who pretended to be excited about Romney although they did not want him at all, bottom of the list right before being told to want him and they obeyed like trained circus animals.  Matrix dwellers.  We need to stop worrying about conservatives or bashing the “other side.”  Celebrate Unity, it is found in the constitution and the Bill of Rights. If anyone is interested, and from what I’ve read here you will be if you  are sincere, Sat. Dec 15 is Bill of Rights day, officially, every year.  Celebrate it, pass that on to complete strangers with a copy of the B of R.  It is time we promoted the truth about the constitution and if a political party doesn’t want people in it that say, “I’m a Constitutional Republican.”  Then it is time to leave them for good.  I am unwilling to give up on the young people and their energy and their optimism.  We need them and they need us to help them accomplish what the brushfires of liberty are doing to wake people up to the truth.  Both parties are deliberately dividing the nation to conquer us and we are assisting them every single time we ridicule a fellow American for being a casualty of one “side” or the other of a two headed lie.

  • pmsternberg

    For the past 10+ years, the Democrats have been saying that the Bush “Tax Cuts for the Wealthy” have created a $700 Billion Dollar deficit (during the Bush years) and negatively affected our economy.  Instead of negotiating for fairy spending reductions and a tax increase on certain earners, the Republicans should give the Democrats what they’ve been squeeling for for 10 years – though didn’t think was important enough to pass when they owned tyhe Congress – the total repeal of the Bush tax cuts.  Make it very clear that they are giving the Democrats what they have been clamoring for – a repeal of the “unfair” tax cuts and a return to the Clinton tax rates.  Make them OWN what they have been calling for and make them take this or nothing.  Without passing the House, there are no new revenue bills.  The Democrats must work with whatever the House gives them.  But MAKE THEM WORK to get it.

    • Boccagalupe

      @pmsternberg
       I can see your point in giving them what they clammer for, but then not give then a sou more.  Then hold tight to the purse strings, as well as no further borrowing.  We have more than adequate income(resources) to fund the mandated expenses, without further borrowing.

  • LunanMike

    Boehner must lead or get out of the way.  Americas future is with Tea Party minded americans.  Every one else is irrellevent.  It starts with not accepting the lefts narrative,  for example;  Immigration.  We love immigrants.  I would like to see more immigrants from Latin america and Canada and less from nations unfreindly toward America.  Seeking out these immigrants to fill “tech” jobs is a mistake.  Why bring someone here potetialy unfreindly toward our culture to take a job our graduates could learn to do,  our club members?  After all,  shouldn’t our representatives be working to improve our lot?  Drive the debate.  LEAD.  Immigration is not trap for conservatives,  its an opportunity.  Dont let the left claim the high ground on immigration. Their policies are harmful to Americans and that means Latin Americans,  African Americans,  Asian Americans…Better immigration policy means more prosperity for all Americans.  Frame the debate by explaining the negative effects illegal immigratin has on our citezens.  Higher rents,  Higher health costs,  Education dollars diluted.  Does this mean deport them? or amnesty?  NO,  There are other options.  I suggest we get the borders under control and stop funding illegals with foodstamps and the like.  Then register illegals as we find them.  If they have no criminal history and are making an effort to satisfy their creditors simply treat them as we do any other legal visitor to our country.  If they can exist here without handouts or criminal activity God bless them.  Apparantly there services are needed.

    I hope to see Boehner replaced in the next congress. He and many in the GOP leadership Such as Rove, Cornyn and others Have had their chance to “fish or cut bait”. They don’t know how to fish and they will not cut bait so lets toss em overboard. If after all is said and done, it may be time for a different party to replace the RNC/GOP.

    WE, THE PEOPLE will struggle and suffer because Obama was re-elected.
    He will spend and spend and spend and spend and spend us into debt
     
    HE spends more money than we send in revenue — so what does BOBO do?
    CHARGE IT…
     
    THIS IS BAD — very bad for the taxpayers
     
    THE problem is Obama — the House of Rep is simply asking for reasonable spending cuts

    • american2american

      @protectliberty It isn’t just Obama.  He wasn’t there in 1913 when they formed the unconstitutional Federal Reserve, or the IRS the same year.  The fed res was never ratified.  It is private bankers taking our money and lending it back to us at interest.  Bernanke is counterfeiting and calling it monetizing the debt a euphemism.  Imagine if you were printing money and said you were monetizing the debt!  You would to directly to prison for a very long time.  The House has taken little to no action save Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich and a few others who are “working for us.”  The rest are working to advance themselves in power and wealth.

  • JaneScroggins

    I see the tea party as the last hope! Better talk to your friends and try to tell them the facts about our financial mess. Stick to facts, talking points, avoid the term Tea Party to begin with esp if they have been watching MSNBC or CNN or they will think you are a perverted racist, after all the news said it so it must be so!!!

    • american2american

      @JaneScroggins this is in great part true in my opinion but I’m skeptical to give the tea party all of the  merit.  They did after all, for the most part, cave and obey by supporting Romney, who is a globalist puppet like Obama.  They fell right in line.  Not all but most, I know I was in the Tea Party until the one here silenced all Ron Paul people and Ron Paul is the father of their tea party but they dismiss that fact and credit Santelli entirely.  Inaccurate blind assumption.  Never researched.

    “Boner” is typical of the Washington based Republican establishment, more concerned with keeping themselves in power than in serving the folks who elected them.  These “go-along-get-along” Republicans sold out their Conservative principles long ago, and continually partner with their Democrat friends to weaken the nation.

       When someone else controls you existence as the government in this country does, we have no freedom and no desire to do well. The flat tax is way way overdue but you don’t see it. The system we have has even the political apointees with tax problems, blaming TURBO TAX.
         If you make a million dollars and pay 5% that will be $50,000. tax. If i make $50,000.00 the tax would be .05 x 50000= $2500. What is so difficult about that and the one that makes the most pays the most but the same percentage. Pretty simple right? @

    The “not playing ball” remark shows just how out of touch that the Republican Party leadership is concerning what they seem to think that the average republican party voter is going to accept.  Didn’t the Romney loss teach them anything?!!  The neo-cons running (and ruining) the party have had their turn at bat and have struck out.  Can’t they see that massive spending for endless wars and a police state is not a viable platform on how to build a party to challenge the Democrats?  The so called “leadership” needs to be removed from their control and a more libertarian minded leadership needs to replace it.  Rand Paul is a good example of what the party should become and Rick Santorum is a good example of what will cause the party to become extinct.

    • Areminder

      There’s really not that much difference between Rand Paul and Rick Santorum, both are honest principled, and keep their promises to voters! Those who’d hold a man’s religious convictions against him, should be totally ashamed to call themselves Americans, these are the very essence of the “Rights endowed by our Creator” (Bill of Rights) and a true libertarian recognizes this fact.

    • american2american

      @rrapidron It already exists.  It is called the Constitution Party.  Strict constitutionalists.  Conservative is a word that distracts us from our allegiance to the rule of law, a citizen’s obligation/duty to defend it.  Not a party, the rule of law, which there lies the similarity in the two headed party of dems and reps, deviation from our laws and breaking their oaths never caring.

    The GOP, with Speaker John Boehner at the held, is like a ship adrift, in the middle of the Ocean.
    We need a new, more experienced and more agressive Captain,  and Leader in Congress.
    Attacking the Tea Party is an act of cowardice and desperation ie like when Obama blames Bush for his blunders.

    It’s time to put the Goopy Overbearing Party on notice, “either be who you say you are, or you’re gone!” I’d say the first step is to flood Congress with calls for Boehnerr to be replaced. Preferably by someone of the ilk he’s trying to whip into shape. If they won’t do it, just name them “Whigs” even if they label themselves “republicans” and watch what happens with a mass grass roots exit to a newly formed “Tea Party” political party. If we refuse to work their phone banks, give money to their candidates or be involved with “get out the vote” they become museum pieces. We can’t wait until 2014 for this, it’s got to be done now so the paperwork is in place to hold primary elections at that time! Boehnerr MUST GO, CANTOR TOO AND ANYONE ELSE WHO’D DISCIPLINE OFFICIALS FOR KEEPING THEIR WORD TO THEIR VOTERS!!!!

What did obama say about the 6 trillion in debt when he took office?

YAL is a good start ( Young Adults for Liberty) out of Colorado. They. they can’t be pushed (you know how we rebelled when we were young. Just point and ask them to research; it’s the best we can do.

  • Bill Weston

    At this point in american history, we have been taught that our republic has a two-party system, exactly one more party than the soviets had. This is a bald-faced lie. The last time I did so, I counted six political parties active on a national scale. In any case, “two-party thinking” has resulted in patriotic americans attempting to work within the two dominant parties.Their attempts have failed. The “big government (brother)” democrats are sold out to socialism, facism, communism. The big corporation republicans are sold out to major and multi-national corporations. In both cases, the result is rule by an elite few, better known as tyranny. The time for “We, the people….” (the recipients of sovereignty delegated by natures God) to take our country back is overdue. 235 years of liberty in the face of three millenia of failed dictatorships has proven the success of the former. This can be done by returning to the biblical premises and the constitutional boundaries that built our country in the  first place. The two-party system has failed us, but liberty has not. May God bless america.

    The ones who pay little or no income tax are the ones jumping up and down wanting everyone else to pay more. What a backward system.
      I know someone who a couple of years ago only made $1900. for the year and he got back $5,000.00. The socialist system is alive and well and has been for some time. When we have a class of people who don’t pay or get more back than they paid , where is the incentive for them to work.
      When you can get government housing and free health care and food stamps and aid for dependent children and you can still stand on the corner and sell dope or your body tax free, why would you want to take a cut in pay and go to work?@

    Thank god that my  wife and I have lived in the best of times.  It was the time of the ” The Greatest American Generation”.  We lived through the great Depression, and World War II.  We had morals, love of God and neighbor, and had families that went to church regularly.  We had house doors unlocked, cars with the keys in the igniton, and knew everyone on our street and their kids by first names.  We would never think of killing the unborn, robbing someone of their goods or wealth and while we might have been naive at times we loved each other and lived in harmony.  All that has changed, and not for the better.  I feel sorry for our kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. May God have mercy on the USA.@

    If Boehner caves, then  We will HAVE to get rid  pof him..  If we can’t get ruid of him then the Republican party will be dead..  What is up with Rush Luimbaugh??? He is also ignoring the fact that Obama won by voter FRAUD! He is suddenly beleiving what the left-wing lying media says..  I think Elrushbo is ready for retirement…

    The Catholic Church has seriously LOST it’s way………..to God Almighty.  If they, as a whole, can support Obama, whose policies and agenda’s directly conflict with the true church’s teachings, then they are done-for.  As a former Catholic, born and raised, attending  Catholic school, I can no longer believe in them.  The Holy Father, himself, should speak to the transgressions of his  believers, but he does not.  The church is wrong, misguided, living in sin.

    I received a statement from the RNC wanting a contribution.  I replied in their postage paid envelope that they would not be getting any more money from this old gal.  I am done with the Republicans thanks to the antics of Boehner.  I am thinking about the Constitution Party.  If anyone gets a contribution it will be them.  I have been a lifelong Republican but no more…..I am done.

    As I read the article and the comments, I continue to see most are under the delusion that somehow by “finding the right candidate or party”, or some other way that hasn’t worked for decades, i.e., continuing the insanity and lie that by clinging to the constitution, it’s god “We The People” and voting for evil A or evil B, is going to change things and save this nation.  That’s the definition of insanity, i.e., trying the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. And this continues with waiving the banner of the constitution, which has been dead for years.   Don’t think so ? Tell me about all the things you’re “free” to do without getting permits, licenses, etc. ????    How’s that constitutional Obamanation wasn’t born here challenge been working out so far ??? Your lost Constitutional Republic died and has become a Communist Republic.   Don’t agree ?   Have you ever read “The Communist Manifesto” and The Ten Planks contained therein ?    Here’s just a few examples, but they’re all in full force and effect in the U.S.S.A.: 1st. Plank:  Property tax  (Abolition of the right to property – land rent)2nd.: Graduated Income tax. 3rd.: Inheritance tax. (Abolition of the right to inheritance)5th.: Central Bank in control of credit & currency (Federal Reserve Bank)10th. Free compulsory education (indoctrination via the public fool system)Getting the picture comrades or do I need to list them all ?   And now it’s morphed into Corporate Fascism.   Most people, including the vast majority of so called “Christians”, hate the truth.The truth of the matter is: For the most part, this nation has turned it’s back on and, in essence, “flipped the bird” to The Great I Am that became flesh and dwelt among us. And because this nation as a whole hates the truth, here’s what’s happened to it: Because they do not have a love of the truth, God has sent them a strong delusion, so that they will believe what is false in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in lawlessness. 2 Thessalonians 2: 10 – 12. That admonition about the love of truth, includes ALL truth, not just the ones you agree with.    How much love of truth do you really have ?  The Almighty told you in His Word that His Laws, Statutes and Judgments are perfect and “Thou shalt not add or subtract therefrom.” Yet, you continually “vote” for legislative and presidential offices to do just that, i.e., “add or subtract therefrom.” The making of Law is a power that belongs to Him and Him alone!The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth. Seek Him while He may yet be found. The Clock is ticking. Look around, the judgments are happening before your eyes.
