The looming GOP civil war - whether Mitt wins or not

An article over on Politico is begging the question "What is the future of the GOP regardless of who wins the election tomorrow?" Apparently the GOP is figuring out that they have lost their way and that the future does not lie in the past.

Wow! Maybe we should have told them that the future is right here among the DP'ers!

The war will not be civil!

Trust me on this one.

It's not looming, it's here already

That was my reason for joining the Tea Party movement originally--because I was so angry at the Republicans.

Anyone?

Has anyone been listening to the GOP hacks in the last week ie. Limbaugh, Laura, Hannity, Beck ?

What was their spiel?

They must of been going nuts lol

donvino

GOP Convention should have been a wedding ceremony. Instead

Romney asked for a divorce from US.

Like so many divorces - it cost him the (White) House.

HE asked for the divorce. We didn't. But he kicked us out and then expected us to be all nicey-nice.

I voted for Gary Johnson and

I voted for Gary Johnson and my wife voted for Obama. My hope is Obama will win by a thin margin. The arrogance of the GOP leaders is mind boggling. Reince Priebus, RNC Chairman, said we Ron Paul supporters are not relevant in this election. I beg to differ, if Obama wins the election today the arrogant A-- H--es in the GOP will have to rethink their strategy if they want to win an election in the future.

Demographics, huh?

I remember a lot of Ron Paul delegates being non-WASHP-ish. His crowds, too.

Not being "hard-" enough? Graham is deliberately not getting it, isn't he? Minority voters would love to follow a true Constitutionalist, as demonstrated by Ron Paul bringing in so much of the Hispanic vote.

They're too dishonest to get the picture. I'm glad I'm staying in the Republican party. With these delusional, corrupt people losing power, honest upstart purists stand a chance of actually changing things.

"Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." -- Thomas Paine

There Are Other Possibilities

"They're too dishonest to get the picture." Or they are too dumb.

SCREW THE GOP

As my man Lew Rockwell says. WE DON'T WANT SCRAPS FROM THE TABLE OF THE CORRUPT AUTHORITARIANS. WE WANT TO KICK THAT TABLE OVER!!!!

The civil war is not for party control. The war is over people hearts and minds.

Make love with the GOP

You have to get to the table to kick it over.

you're nuts

So how well is the love making with GOP working? How well is that working out for Rand. He got a whole 7 other people to vote on the end aid to middle east bill. They won't even let us in the tent. Never mind a seat at the table. And no, we don't need a seat at the table to knock it over. All we need is more people to open their eyes and wake up. Then we can trample the table and the tent its in. THE GOP IS TO CORRUPT DON'T YOU GET IT. IT DOESN'T NEED REFORM, IT NEEDS TO DIE ALREADY!. SAME WITH THE DNC

I do get it

That's why this is a good fight, not easy, but good. Join the GOP to clean it up.. they want us to clean up Romney.. OK. Give us Romney.. we'll clean him up too.

Cleanup?!?!?!? There isn't even a BELT-SANDER...

with enough bite for any "RepubliCAN" (FAKE-Liberty, co-opting GOPer) "cleanup."

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Looks like we have our work cut out for us eh?

To you, that list is bricks in a wall.. to me, speed bumps.

Correct.

That's why our nation is slipping further into FULL-ON Central Government Planning. Too many Americans are tricked by RepubliCANS (Liberty Movement co-opters) into driving full speed into WALL AFTER WALL AFTER WALL... not seeming to realize the sneaky RepubliCAN has only PAINTED A TUNNEL ONTO THE WALL - coyote/roadrunner-style.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

You can have the liberty movement

I'm very happy in the RP rEVOLution in the GOP with RP.

Oooopsy...

No, YOU ARE NOT RP r3VOLution!!!!! YOU CAN'T EVEN SPELL IT RIGHT!!!!!!!!
No, YOU ARE NOT WITH RON PAUL!!!!!
NO, YOU ARE NOT RepubliCAN!!!!!!
NO, YOU ARE NOT Constitutional Liberty.
NO, YOU ARE NOT Tea Party.
NO, YOU ARE NOT "conservative."

YOU ARE REPUBLICAN. Nothing more.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

To you

The banner I had on HWy 20 and 1 interesection for 4 1/2 months back in 08 said: Join the Ron Paul rEVOLution, and so do my bumper stickers.. so where's I'm at, a Ron Paul RepubliCAN.

What sre you to me? Hmmm.

Makes sense.

Co-opters fly their flags the highest. Same with Tea Party co-opters. If someone CLAIMS to be "tea party," there's a 95% chance you're dealing with NOTHING MORE... than a regular ol' REPUBLICAN.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

a regular ol' REPUBLICAN

Like Ron Paul?

Obviously, non-whites don't care about liberty nor solvency

“If we lose this election there is only one explanation — demographics,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

But Republicans are divided on the way forward. Its base is growing more conservative, nominating and at times electing purists while the country is becoming more center than center-right. Practical-minded party elites want to pass a comprehensive immigration bill, de-emphasize issues like contraception and abortion and move on a major taxes-and-spending deal that includes some method of raising new revenue...."

Oh, wait, neither liberty nor solvency is on the table as an choice. So it must be "demographics"; moron.

Bill of Rights /Amendment X: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28

"Civil war?"

I'm looking forward to it's funeral.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Politico knows there's a civil war coming in both parties.

They recognize the liberty movement as the tip of the spear and know where we're attacking first. They want to turn it into "a Republican problem".

Not even a Democrat can pretend to be blind forever. It must be killing them inside to have to stand on the sidelines, pretending they can't see what's happening.

They're natural born rabble-rousers for freedom and justice, or at least that's what they claim to be. It's time for them to put up or shut up.

you guys crack me up

if Mitt wins, the war is over.
I wonder how long it will take folks in the Liberty movement to realize that. :)

War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses.
Thomas Jefferson

Which war? Not afganistan. He

Which war?

Not afganistan.

He will start a war in Iran.

Today is called BLOWBACK. Maybe the GOP shouldnt have disenfranchised us and cheated throughtout the primaries, caucuses, and at the RNC.

People like YOU guaranteed an Obama re-election. My conscience is clear.

which war??

I am referencing the war that most of the folks on here dont even realize is being waged against them FROM the GOP leadership.
we're in a war within the GOP.
If you cant see that from how Dr. Paul and the rest of us who tried to be part of the process at the county and state conventions were lied to and cheated along with the criminal activity used to keep Ron Paul OUT, then you're not of much use to the Liberty movement.
We need to wake up real fast!

We just won a large battle by the way by helping romney lose.

The battle for the GOP

They shoved McCain down our throat, and now Mittens. Ron Paul is out of the party.
If you check your hands, you will find they are holding your arse, unceremoniously handed to you by the GOP.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

We were much smaller in 08

I refused to join the GOP in 07/08, just like many here voting GJ or write-in.. I would have been there.. but instead I am RPGOP and my Romney vote is for the rEVOLution to restore the Repubic, which I believe Romney offer us the perfect opportunity. A door closes, a window opens.

I'm thinking of chairing the youth committee, even though I am not young, I think all my previosu grassroots expereience will pay off in having a GOP parade float with the anti-drone theme and drill.

How great to see an anti-war float and drill brought to you by your local RPGOP? What would president Romney do about that?

The GOP is about to self

The GOP is about to self implode and we will be there to pick up the pieces.

Robo Calls and ONE LIVE CONGRESS CRITTER...

Had a phone call a few days ago and who was on the line than none other than my NADA voting congressman. I warmed up to a full chew his arse out barage, even rebuffing his spin by telling him I was at LPAC where Justin Amish set the record straight on how the voting went down on NADA. The nerve of that guy even running commericials where he touts he's protecting our "Civil Liberties".

I've never been motivated to join the local GOP, but after this last session of lies I'm going in head first and they are gonna get one hell of a wake up.

I called my senator's office

I called my senator's office right after I left the poll and told his staffer that I voted against him just because he voted for the NDAA and for not standing up to Harry Reid for SB202
