"I was not surprised that the courageous efforts of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee were all for naught."


Time for Conservatives to Make a Decision: Dump the GOP The Republican Party is not the home of conservatives and will become the Whig party of the 21st century.
It will outlive its usefulness as an alternative to the progressive Democrats. If conservatives are to be ignored and unable to achieve anything through the electoral process, why should they bother to be involved with their opponents? Why should we compromise principle when defeat is pre-determined?

Your Say

How do we keep out the compromisers and liberals from the new party? They will ruin the new party.

You keep the compromisers and the liberals from the new party the same way you kept them from all the other "New Party(TM)", by being losers, and throwing elections to the Democrats. That's the whole point. Actually getting stuff done, like the amazing run the Republicans have had on Gun Rights, requires choices and compromises. Not fun. As a failed fringe group, you can have your cake and eat it too (One Day!), like being for a smaller government, and wanting to build a wall, run and staffed by the INS/ICE/Whatever (You know, the guys who made sure the 9/11 hijackers got their papers, their very, very public deaths to the contrary) around the whole country, visible from lunar orbit, to "Control The Border!". Could be hard to reconcile those positions, if you had a hope in Heck of getting into power......

I was thinking of this Republican truism (when I am not thinking about the life cycle of seedpods as pictured in The Feature Shoot) and feel in addition to term limits, all politicians and bureaucrats need to shop at Walmart at least once a week to be reminded of humanity in general and the lower half of the Bell Curve in particular.

He has had his fifteen minutes of fame, now he's toast. Look what happened to Palin. The way to tell how much of a threat he is to DC is when they start digging dirt on him. He might could go back to Texas, they want to secede from what I hear. By next week it will be "nothing to see here folks, keep moving".
