Sarah Palin speaking yesterday on Fox News

When asked if she would consider creating a third party if neither Gov. Romney nor President Obama would budge from their current positions on a variety of issues, Palin left open the door.
“Look what happened in the mid 1800′s. The Whig party went away and the Republican Party surfaced. Because the electorate got sick and tired of the party fighting for power and not doing the will of the people.”
Palin went on to say history could repeat itself.

Morton Blackwell = HERO

The revolt’s leaders include key figures in the conservative movement and on the committee. Virginia delegate and longtime RNC member Morton Blackwell, a former Reagan aide who founded a conservative training academy called the Leadership Institute, called them the “worst-ever changes” to the party rules. In an email to delegates to the convention, Blackwell urging them to vote for the amendment to the Rules Committee report referred to as the committee’s minority report.
“If the Rules Committee Report were to pass without adoption of the Minority Reports, it would amount to a power grab by Washington, D.C. party insiders and consultants designed to silence the voice of state party activists and Republican grassroots,” he said.
To force a roll call vote on the minority report, the opponents must secure the backing of a majority of six delegations, setting the stage for a rare floor flight on Tuesday afternoon.

Reagan Lied

During the campaign he sounded just like Ron Paul. Once elected he was a monster.

This brings me back to

This brings me back to something I was thinking this afternoon and meant to ask:

For those of you who know the history of the GOP, who were the great men and women through the years of the party that typify a real Republican, a role model, and what do you think they'd have to say about what's going down in Tampa right now?

Quite the opposite

Reagan was the blueprint for todays neo-cons, this is a natural progression.

Sarah Palin supporters won't think so

I am trying to get Ron Paul NOMINATED

I really don't care what you think.

Have you sent a letter to Prebus yet?
If not, why are you wasting your time posting comments like that on here.
Get on it and send YOUR letter to Prebus.

A bunch of other contacts on the previous post.
Get onto them as well.
