The far right Tea Party “patriots” have turned on Sarah Palin because she has endorsed Carly Fiorina. Fiorina is NOT good enough for the Tea Party people. Evidently they are finally showing their true colors. They are bullies! If their childish demands are not met, they will destroy. So, their long knives are out for Palin.
If they continue on their current path, they are going to do serious damage to the GOP in November. Someone needs to explain to the far right media that the tea parties are NOT about conservative – they are about promoting LOSERTARIANS.
The only hope The Pink Flamingo holds for the GOP and the 2010 mid-terms is the fact that the far left is as insane as the far left. Both groups are crazy, out of touch with reality, and are hopped up on their alleged success fed by their fawning media devotes.
Did you happen to catch Hannity last night? Frank Luntz’s traveling medicine show illuminated the problem in AZ. He managed to catch the racist anti-immigration bigots and the fear the Hispanics have of them. BUT – the biggest thing was Rudy Giuliani.
FINALLY – a Rational Republican! Would someone please hit this man over the head and make him RUN in 2012! He is rational. He is a grown-up.
Unfortunately – the current climate in politics makes it increasingly difficult for rational grown-ups to be heard and to be elected. It is all about grandstanding to placate the howling masses.
Are the Tea Party “patriots” any different from those Romans who demanded bread and circuses – who made so many demands of their “leaders” that Rome degraded into an irrational empire?
“…So while the leaders of the GOP contemplate 2012 over at the RNC’s HQ on First Street, perhaps David Cameron can inspire some reform. It will mean the GOP once again becomes a center-right political party that governs for everybody, a party that has the honesty to come before the voters and tell the truth that we can’t afford major tax cuts and that entitlement reform has to be on the agenda. It will mean reaching out to non-Republican voters with a Republican message. And last but not least, Cameron’s success means that the GOP must also have the guts to stand up to the hard right in the Tea Party and within certain elements of the GOP itself….”
If we continue to allow the lunitics from the fringes to call the shots, we are going to face ruin in November. If libertarians like Rand Paul are nominated, the GOP is going to lose the possibility for taking back the Senate.
As a Republican, I am having serious problems dealing with some of the crackpots the libertarians are pushing on us. If I were in Utah, I do not think I could vote for Mike Lee and I think that Tim Bridgewater is a crackpot. Rand Paul violates many of my beliefs. I could NEVER vote for him. That’s like Adam Kokesh here in New Mexico. To me he is a traitor who does not support our military.
I hate to say it, but if I were in a location where any of these people was running, I WOULD NOT VOTE FOR THEM. I would not vote for the Dem, but simply not voting is a vote for a Dem.
It’s like Rand Paul. Like all libertarians, he cannot tell the truth. There is no MORALITY in his stand.
“…Dr. Rand Paul qualifies our military presence in the world as “empire building.” His solution? Withdraw our troops, not only from Iraq (where they never should have been in the first place,) but from every other military base in the world. How can any rational person believe that allowing Islamic Sharia dictatorships and Marxist slave-nations to dominate the world can be good for our economy or our safety?
What are the practical consequences of Rand Paul’s simplistic foreign policy? According to the Kentucky Commission on Military Affairs, about 9.8 billion dollars.
The maintenance and development of a military in the absence of true need would be unethical….Doing away with the United States global military presence is not only dangerous for our security, but would have disastrous and far-reaching economic impact on Kentucky. The absolute lack of consideration of the potential hardship that would be inflicted on the people of Kentucky if his ideas became policy indicates that Rand Paul himself has not even considered the real world consequences of his utopian National Defense philosophy….”
What is a Republican to do?
Well, we take our party back from the lunatic libertarian fringe.
Then, we need to explain just who Ronald Reagan was and why libertarians are a total betrayal of what he believed. We also need to explain that libertarians are NOT conservative.
It is about people who are so delusional that they think THEIR voice and their opinion is the only one that is valid. This is fine for Barack Obama, but not for Republicans.
Let’s face the fact that Arizona’s governor, Jan Brewer started a firestorm that is only going to do great harm to the GOP. It is the lunatic fringe at work, but right now they are empowered. Who is behind this law?
“….Kris Kobach, the author of the Arizona law and a lawyer at FAIR’s Immigration Reform Law Institute, has been the prime mover behind numerous ordinances that seek to punish those who aid and abet “illegal aliens,” including laws adopted in Farmer’s Branch, Texas, and Hazelton, Pa.
The laws have not done well and have cost some localities immense sums of money to defend. Recently, the city of Albertville, Ala., refused to work with Kobach on just such an ordinance, reportedly because of the high legal costs incurred by these other communities…..FAIR has been dominated for much of its life by its racist founder and current board member, John Tanton, who has written that “for European-American society and culture to persist requires a European-American majority, and a clear one at that.” Tanton’s role model for FAIR is John Trevor Sr., founder of the racist American Coalition of Patriotic Societies and a key architect of the racially restrictive Immigration Act of 1924. Trevor also distributed pro-Nazi propaganda and warned shrilly of “diabolical Jewish control” of America. Tanton once said Trevor should serve as FAIR’s “guidepost to what we must follow again this time.”
FAIR’s president, Dan Stein, has warned that immigrants are engaged in “competitive breeding” aimed at diminishing white power. He led efforts to win funding from the Pioneer Fund, saying in 1993 that his “job [was] to get every dime of Pioneer’s money.” Stein also served as editorial adviser to Tanton’s hate journal, The Social Contract, at a time when it ran its ugliest edition ever, “Europhobia: The Hostility Toward European-Descended Americans.” The issue’s lead article argued that multiculturalism was replacing “successful Euro-American culture” with “dysfunctional Third World cultures.” Stein has declined to offer any criticism of FAIR’s founder, instead characterizing Tanton last September as a “Renaissance man.”
The principal sponsor of the Arizona law, state Sen. Russell Pearce, has his own history of hate. In 2006, Pearce forwarded an email to his supporters from the neo-Nazi National Alliance titled “Who Rules America?” The article criticized the media for promoting multiculturalism and racial equality, and for presenting the Holocaust as fact. More recently, Pearce has been photographed hugging J.T. Ready, a Phoenix-area resident who is a member of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement….”
