    God forbid we elect Gingrich or Romney. These are the very turds who are tainted with cronyism and DC politics runs deep in their systems. They need to go. Once we have a primary winner, I will support that candidate against O Blah Blah no matter how bad he or she may be.

    I believe that if we get a true conservative in the Tea Party and the GOP pushes a RINO, the registered GOPers will flock to the true conservative.
    maybe so, but you don't see many people of "color" at a Palin rally. Here's a list of many of the congresscritters who ran on tea party platforms...

    I could see myself rallying around many of them especially DeMint, Paul and Jones. I am not voting for a Romney.


    Jim DeMint South Carolina
    Mike Lee Utah
    Jerry Moran Kansas
    Rand Paul Kentucky
    Ralph Hall, Texas
    Walter Jones, North Carolina
    Cynthia Lummis, Wyoming
    Sue Myrick, North Carolina
    Justin Amash, Michigan
    Jeff Duncan, South Carolina

    Palin joined the bandwagon when it became politically expedient to do so IMO. Guys like Walter Jones been preaching and practicing the small government stuff for years now.

    Um, no it is not. Several factors got Obama elected. First, the economy was in decline and when that happens, the ruling party suffers. 2nd, the Democrats did a fantastic job of vote getting meaning they signed up a lot of potential Obama voters. Yes there was a modicum of fraud involved but not enough to swing an election but a lot of first time voters voted for Obama. 3rd, the GOP did not run a viable candidate and the candidate they did run ran on a platform of "but my name isn't George W. Bush". This rarely results in victory. Just ask Al Gore. 4th, the independents bought into Obama's hope and change cock and bull platform. 5th, I don't think picking Sarah Palin was the best thing McCain could have done. Oh his numbers jumped when she gave her RNC speech but once she began to make the national circuit, her hokieness started rubbing people the wrong way and her interviews made her sound less than intelligent("Which newspapers do you read?" "All of them." Oy). Now, some like to say that the black vote got Obama elected but blacks vote overwhelmingly for Democrats so they can run a billy goat and they will vote for a billy goat as long as said billy goat is a Democrat so that doesn't fly but these are a few reasons why Obama won. Not the 3rd party nonsense.

    Now, if you want to say that's how Clinton and GWB were elected, then you'd have something there.

    The Tea Party maybe represents 20% of the US population. They are an incredibly fucking loud 20%, but your vote isn't worth more if you're a zealot.

    That's enough to win the Republican nomination, especially since the primaries are a lot more favorable to small but intense ideoglically driven minorites, but that candidate will get absolutely pasted in the general election. Put a Michelle Bachmann or Sarah Palin up against Barack Obama and you make it so he wont even be held accountable for his awful attempt at healthcare before or George Bush styled foreign policy; he just says (paraphrasing) "These people are fucking crazy", most of the American people believe him, and the Republicans lose.

    Its fine by me really if you guy do that. The progress towards a strong socialist American state has been absolutely minuscule under Obama, but I'd hate to see it all undone and then go backwards a century under some bozo.

    That's a mistake on your part. Obama sank Hillary Clinton's battleship. He didn't win by default.

    Bullshit. If Hillary was the one who won the Democratic nomination for President she would be President for the very same reason, by not being Bush. The Obumbler won the nomination by being a better bullshit artist than she was.

    That's enough to win the DIMoRAT nomination and office of the president, especially since the last general election was more favorable to small but intense ideoglically driven minorites, much like that last unqualified candidate got absolutely worshiped in the general election by the collective idiots on the left. Put anybody up against Barack Obama and you win even though the media will make it so he wont even be held accountable for his unlawful shoving of Socialist healthcare down our throats before or the disaster of his lack of a foreign policy; he just says (paraphrasing) "These people are fucking crazy", all of the liberal idiots believe him, but the Republicans wipe the floor anyway since most of the lies over the last three years have been exposed.
    Its fine by me really if you guy (sic) do that. The progress towards a strong socialist American state has been absolutely accelerated under O Blah Blah, but I'd love to see worldwide tyranny in a century under another idiot bozo like Gore, Dean, O BAMY, Feinstein, Reid, Wiener, Smucky Shummer, etc, etc,,.

    What I hear is

    It would be a shame to actually follow the constitution.
