#Occupy THEIR space.

See how they like it.

The problem with occupying their space is that we need body guards to do so. Just ask any of the speakers who try to speak at universities, which are supposed to be open to ideas. And the elitists will never part with their... elitism. It's the "too cool for Sarah Palin" mentality. I witnessed it first hand in the 08 cycle. Even my kids were called racists for our open support of Palin/McCain... by other very young school kids. The problem is that our base doesn't have the political will, maybe not even the political consciousness, to fight. I know it's not an option in 2012, but I'm finding myself wishing for a third party more than ever before... a fighting party which, like Scott and Joan propose, is willing to take risks. It may lead to an all out civil war but we're committing national suicide the way we're going.

This commentary is spot-on. And, yes, I do think there will be another civil war.

Fight by their rules. That gives them the shivers; you seen and heard the squealing when THAT happens. The cries of unfair billow out like smoke at a four-alarm fire.

Gerard: We love you man. But, you have to spend your time and energy on your own health, because this one seems to be over. It is time for you, and me, for that matter, to learn to love Mitt Romney.

First: Here is a list of the Republican Nominees for President since WWII:

Starting with 2008 and going back:

Bush II (2x)
Bush I (2x)
Reagan (2x)
Nixon (3x)

Only two of those who were recognizably conservative are Goldwater and Reagan. I think that Mitt would be to the right of all of them except for Barry and Ronnie.

Second, talk of a third party is pure foolishness. The most important thing is getting Hussein and the Insane Clown Possee out of the White House. Compared with that gang of Communists, Mitt is a right winger.

Third, The election is the incumbent's to lose. Our nominee must not blow up like Rick Perry, and cannot scare small children like Ron Paul.

This is the greater sin of Herman Cain. He not only didn't stay on the plantation, he's trying to help others off of it. And he's saying as much.

This pattern is Obama's, but before the 2008 election.
In the Illinois Senate race, Obama (with the help of the media) cleared the slate of opposing candidates with legal challenges and bad PR. I think he learned a useful lesson then.
If the candidate you are running against is constantly being replaced by someone new because you damaged the old candidate before the voting started, he built momentum and the other guy was always getting started.

"It is time for you, and me, for that matter, to learn to love Mitt Romney."

I never like to talk like this in a public forum, but, this needs to be said:


He's The One the insiders at the RNC want to give the nomination to: most GOPers know it. They are willing to ignore that monster of RomneyCare hanging over his pretty neck like an albatross, thinking that it will make no difference in the end.

With that kind of attitude, the election is over. Obama has already won. Pick up your stuff, we're going home.

Honestly... do YOU want Obama to remain in the White House?

Are you better off today than you were in 2008? That's the question that needs asking, loudly and broadly. That's the question the American People will have to answer to themselves, within the confines of their homes, families and finances. They cannot deny what they see once they ask it.

That was the awakening question of 1980. That MUST be The Question of 2012. If the people choose to ignore it and re-elect Obama, this nation is doomed.

BS. No we do not. When faced with determination they going crying home to Mommy that we are being mean. Smack the frakkin' fools in the face a few times. Deliver the disdain with a beotch slap and they shall run away. When you get right down to it they are cowards.
