RINO Gabriel Gomez lost to Democrat Ed Markey in the special election to fill the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry. I say, "Thank God." We cannot allow Democrat-lite RINOs like Gomez to define the GOP.However, I have little hope that the "stuck on fear, panic, and stupid" GOP will get it. Despite their wasting tons of money backing Gomez, who agrees with 90% of the Democrat agenda, he still lost. And yet, I guarantee the GOP will interpret the loss as evidence that our party needs to move farther to the left.


Why should liberal Massachusetts voters select a Democrat-lite Gomez over a full-bodied Democrat like Ed Markey? Moderate Republicans thought six of one, half-dozen of the other and stayed home. Conservative Republicans rightly could not bring themselves to vote for Gomez, who promised not to oppose Obama's agenda.



Purging RINO's from the republican party is divine intervention. If they get rid of enough of them, I might consider returning to the republican party.

You perceive the Republican Party as being composed primarily of Bible-toting Christians--which it is not. There may be a lot of Christians in the Republican Party, but they're never going to be successful in turning America into a Christian theocracy--nor should they be. The Constitution was specifically and clearly written to prevent a theocracy--of any strain--from overwhelming government activities.

You can state your core value...

~ limited government
~ fiscal responsibility
~ a strong defense
~ sovereign borders

...but the minute you inject religious values, you're done, not divine.

IMO this tactic makes no sense at all. Not saying I do not understand it.

The actual best way to deal with a RINO is to recognize they have value and a lot of it --- HOWEVER, you have to place enough other folks around them that they can go with the majority. RINOs are slimy pragmatists, which is a far better category than slimy socialist.

Having a majority with 10 RINOs will have all ten RINOs voting conservative.

Now fighting like heck to ensure a RINO is not elected in a place where a conservative is a viable candidate is a really good idea, mandatory in fact. Like getting McCain gone for example. The other side of the coin is a Republican from Massachusetts, that is fine, why do you want him out when the only other possibility is a John Ketry wannabe

I understand not having blind allegiance. Like not voting for a RINO for President I agree is rational and a good move. Not supporting the party because some extremely Dem state elects a Republican who leans left or that the state GOP runs such a candidate is not going to help anything you believe in IMO

WHo did you buy this nonsense from? I hope you got it at a discount.

There are very close to zero Republicans who want religion as part of the country's government or have any desire to cross the boundary fo religion and politics any even semi educated person understands the disaster that looms in crossing the Religion/State boundary.

Wanting your faith left alone and not violated by the state is all any religious person wants. Buying into the silly dogma that some Christian is trying to take over the country is absurd.

The only people trying to influence a state religion is the socialists and heir best tool is convincing people like you with the nonsense you are now touting IMO

I've read your sentiments on this to wolverine and others. I disagree. Seen too much of what you suggest not working very well over the years.

We need something revolutionary. We ain't gonna find in the repub party.

The closest to "revolutionary" that I can see is the Tea Party or Libertarian Party.

Good luck with that.

Revolutions do not often produce the results that folks are looking for. Do not let out revolution fool you, it is a very rare exception.

Change through the system is what you want. How far down the rabbit hole are you willing to go? THis revolution and rejection of the Republican brand altogether as opposed to working to co-opt it, how many decades of Dems with no buffer are you willing to live through? IMO you are supporting the Dope Jedi model of the only way to save the patient is to kill it. It may be right, I personally think it is not the best idea.

I go back and forth between the Jedi/Dope mentality and the low mentality, some days i just want the populace to suffer for their absolute low info stupidity, and some days i want what's best for the nation. In my gut i don't think we will snap out of this, i just think people are too easily distracted by shiny lures like Paula Deen, Trayvon Martin, Gay Marriage, and Sandra Fluke. I believe nothing will happen til you're eating your neighbor.

We already have the means for a revolution. It's called the ballot box. The only reason we don't have reasonable and responsible government is that those who espouse it stay home on election day. Voter apathy is the main reason for the decline of the United States.

I agree with you 100 percent.

This is what the Tea Party was actually all about. It was not about gathering Republicans, it was about gathering the disaffected. If it was about gathering Republicans it could not have made such a big difference in 2010.

That is why it had to be vilified. That is why it had to become if you were a member you were an outcast an oddball. There had to be a price a high price for considering getting back in the game.

You have no idea to what lengths Dems will go to silence Tea Party folks. Just the other day, I was at the dog park, and with a very Dem friend of mine, who was telling others how this outright Tea Party person had made claims that the government controlled the weather.

I later talked to the Tea Party person, what they had said was that the government was manipulating and misrepresenting the climate data.

These type of lies are all over the place as anyone that knows a lib knows too well

I still have not figured how to address this, if I want to shame the person publicly or just make the point in less confrontational manner, but it will not stand obviously, as the lie was told to a group.

Liberals for too long have gotten away with lying and not being confronted. Those that were once good people now are at the very least dupes with bad motives and at the higher end complicit in being lying slime.

I was thinking the same thing. I would gladly learn to handle a gun if it meant preserving what's left of this country.

That, and I would lay down my life for my faith and to preserve my child's life.

That's about all.

One addresses it precisely as you addressed it: by stating calmly but affirmatively: "No, the Tea Party person didn't make the claim that the government controlled the weather. What the Tea Party person actually said was that the government was manipulating and misrepresenting the climate data. You do understand the distinction, don't you?"

Then stop talking. The librul idiots will eventually be identified for the idiots they truly are.
