    I'll have to go back and look for the post where I was called delusional for predicting a landslide in November. I still have no hesitation to predict it.

    My question is: Given the cold shoulder the Republican Party gave the Tea Party, what impetus is there for the Tea Party to continue to elect Republicans?

    The GOP does not need us in the the Tea Party, the GOP has God on their side.

  5. I wouldn't be so sure about a landslide. After listening to Mark Levin last night, I am furious and disgusted at the same time with Mitch McConnel and Boners' war on the freshman tea party conservatives. Eric Cantor, John McCain, Dick Lugar, etc are establishment republicans who are almost as much of an enemy as the left.

    We may have to live with a liberal republican as president, but the danger is greater in the house and senate. All of this stuff we argue about is cover for the deceit and treachery in congress.

    Simple. They have no where else to go. And why should they? The TP has had a net positive influence on the Republican Party especially at the local and state level. This bodes well for the future. In the near term, the Nov. 2012 election will be a choice between voting for a domestic terrorist and voting for a Republican. Wise men will vote Republican... both for the executive and legislative candidates. Why? Because Conservatives in the house and senate can and will name the tune to which the executive will have to dance. With a Republican in the white house, the result will be a waltz rather than a exercise in slam dancing.

    They do have other choices and WILL. The Tea party wanted a strong fiscal conservative who would put smaller government first. Obama may not fit this bill, but neither does Mitt. They wanted a candidate who would not inject religion and morals into the legal system. Obama DOES fit this, where Mitt does not. The Libertarian party matches both.

    Maybe it did, but then Palin and Bachman proclaimed themselves as the leaders an the Tea Party became the same Party of God that chased us away in the first place.

    That depends on what you call "conservative." I'm a wise man, but I won't vote for anther compassionate conservative like GWB again.

    We have to take back the Republican Party...

    Perot showed us the folly of dividing the anti-communist vote.

    Obama is going to be crushed. We still have a summer of Obamanomics ahead of us.

    I too was called delusional (and other unsavory names) for predicting Obama would lose by a landslide to the republican candidate.

    The American people are fed up with Obama and his big government policies, and in November they'll correct their mistakes they made in 2008.

    All the libertarian haters of the republican party are going to lose once again when they're proven wrong.

    Never under estimate the American people.

    You and Leahy are still delusional. Look at all the nuts here who are going to vote for Obama just to be spiteful because they don't agree with Romney as a Republican candidate (assuming he is the one).

    There won't even be a conservative victory, much less a "landslide."

    Don't get your hopes up.
    It doesn't mean we're going to be taking warm showers together.

    You are confused definitely.

    The American people are so fed up with a big-government democrat they are going to vote for a big-government republican. :rofl: Yeah that will teach those socialist!

    It the same mistake all over, and it has nothing to do with RP or libertarians.

    The problem with the GOP is not as simple as libertarians are wrong. In fact I think most libertarians and Austrian school economist predicted the problems America now faces. In Ron's case at least since the 80's.

    Going to left is what the GOP has to do to even compete with the left, since so called republicans like yourself think there is a difference between a republican liberal and a democrat liberal on economic issues, government intervention, and foreign policy. Not much difference there between Mitt and Barry when taken in that context.

    You cant compete with the left that way, but you can't win an election by promising to cut government significantly. It's not going to happen and doesn't fly with voters on either side. It's the control of that government power people like you are worried about, not cutting it.
     
  18. A Romney landslide would hardly be a conservative landslide.

    According to who?

    A bunch of pissed off sore losers, mad at the republican party for not bending over for Ron Paul?

    A very small group of selfish, anarchist, government hating, elitist jerks who think they're better than everyone else?

    Today's republican party isn't perfect, not by a long shot, but it's far better than Ron Paul and Obama put together.
