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!

Pretty good piece. Talks a

Pretty good piece. Talks a lot about GOP challenges. The one thing it leaves out is how screwed the Dems are when the economy still sucks in 3 years. No matter what happens tomorrow, everything will be different in 2015. Libertarians will have an unprecedented opportunity. We can't blow it.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

Why don't they just attend meetings and find out?

That's what I don't get, for all the truth seeking seeking DPers suggest they are all about, why don't these same people go to a GOP meeting, event, convention and see for themselves.. go to the headquarters tomorrow and check it out.. becuase it's not what I thought it was.. it's a MSM fabrication and why it's perfect for a rEVOLution..

The r3VOLution dies...

if it hitches a ride on that wheezing, Central Government Planning rotting corpse of a pachyderm... or it's siamese twin, the donkey.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.


Republican ramoras collect around the Constitutional Libertarian Liberty Movement, same as the Constitutional Libertarian Tea Party. They are a deadly breed of ramora, as they not only live off their host... they BODY-SNATCH THEIR HOST with deceptive words like "RepubliCAN" (a republican's rip-off of the Ron Paul Liberty Movement's "r3LOVution").

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

RepubliCAN is from RP in Tampa

The rEVOLution is like a ramora on the GOP. The Liberty Movement, by whatever pre-lable, is part of the r3VOLution, that is NOT GOP.

I am way into the RP rEVOLution as a republiCAN. I could careless about a liberty movement by whatever pre-lable.


Maybe they don't want to have their fingers broken or hips dislocated or be arrested. Just those "silly" tactics the gop azzholes use?

Formerly rprevolutionist

Oh Poor bubby. . :(

Those people would do the exact same thing again!

They are Patriots, Sounds to me your a Pussy.

The Republican Party will be taken Back!

Save the Republic!

End the Fed!

So you think the gop was

So you think the gop was right in all the actions?
You think it was ok for them to lie, cheat, steal and inflict harm? And have people arrested?
Oh also that should have been you're not your? lol you're: contraction for you are.

Formerly rprevolutionist


What the hell are you talking about? The people who were attacked by the GOP would do it all again, BECAUSE THEY ARE PATRIOTS!

To me, Your a Pussy, because you seem to be scared by the GOP thugs and want everyone to run away from the Challenge.

Plus, Your a small minded idiot for trying to one up yourself by correcting my punctuation, Guess what I dont care, and i,ll __right HoW-evER I waanT!

"you're: contraction for you are." <--- You think I didnt know that?, YOUR mighty helpful, thanks for YOUR lesson.

Sheesh. Seems we have another divider here to Join LL, who knows, maybe it is LL?, Changing seem to be one of the few that actually think LL is still helping his cause by attacking everyone.

I am responding to you out of

I am responding to you out of entertainment value
If you are too crude and uneducated to know the difference between your and you're, I feel your pain. lol
Yes those people would do it all again, but why the hell should they?
Do not throw out names like divider as I have been here for a few months. You have a name saying downunder.... so are you in the US? Are you able to vote or just divide or attack?

Formerly rprevolutionist

Sure Sure

Ive seen your comments, You are joining LL in his divide and conquer Techniques. Good luck with that.

Youve missed my point twice now, Your other posts shows you have no respect for Ron Paul, so there is very little to say. You show who you are through your posts. I dont have to call you anything for people to make their own minds up.

And No im not in the US? Are you one of these Ignorants that are here from time to time, that say things like "Your not even American, this doesnt concern you!" Because if you are, Then you have a Hell of a lot more learning to do.

If you dont understand that this Debt based frational reserve Central Banking is Global, then you need to expand your thinking.

And again, Like I said, I really dont care about you not liking my punctuation, and if that is all you have to comment on, then I see that again, as another tactic of Distraction and Division.

Dont bother replying, because I am quickly tiring of your BS.


No answer to the tactics the gop uses?
Dammit... no reply from granger who lives here 24/7.
No answer about the wonderful open arms of the gop.

This Would Have To Be Considered A Horrible Loss

If Mitt can't beat Obama after the past 4 years (and I do think Obama will win) then it would have to be considered a horrible loss. Mitt is a horrible candidate and I think even the (lame) true GOP supporters knew it. I think this is it for Romney politically. I can't imagine they'll let him run again. Not that I care either way. Just making the point.


It is the death rattle of the Republican Party. Obama is the weakest incumbent I've ever seen, yet Mitt is weaker still. The Republican bluster and bravado will be taking a back seat for a while. It is inevitable, as American demographics shift, that the aged, white, Party will shrink even further. Many people will leave to get away from the "God hates Fags" and "rape pregnancy is a gift" Republican evangelical freak people.
Now is the time to form a group of voters that are tightly fiscally responsible and socially liberal. This is what many people want, R D and I. This group will form itself soon under the Republicans or the Democrats, unless a third Party rises, which certainly has historical precedence. With 35% registered as Independants, the third party could be called the Independance Party and it would have a lot of people that think they already belong.
If we stop "taking care" of the rest of the world, we will have plenty to take good care of Americans with. We are a prosperous, charitable, and industrious population generally. We have spread ourselves far too thin and tried to coat the whole with our power.

Sad thing.

Since I am in Oklahoma I guess I will go ahead and vote for the worst pres this country has ever had just so I can tell the gop to go f themselves!

Formerly rprevolutionist


every Republican that I've spoken to who's going to vote for him doesn't like him however, they hate Obama and don't believe there's another viable candidate.Most said they would vote 3rd party without a second thought if they believed it could just get Obama out.

The GOP is in the process

of transforming itself into the full fledged democrat party (yes they have been a big govt party for a while, but with both Bushes, McCain & now Willard, they are finally coming out of the closet.) All the while the democrat party is transforming itself into the socialist party (no name change with either though.) With socialism being way more extreme than the main democratic party, the new (decades in the making) gop will still seem conservative in comparison to the new (decades in the making) democratic party, and most people will continue to bu the rhetoric (on both sides.)

All they have to do is control the dissent, and walla, USSA here we come!

You will get to the Wikipedia page and there you will see that the Republican Party in the US is a member. The International Democrat Union was started by a Republican Vice President - George Bush - that may be why he truly did believe in his New World Order.

Check it out for yourself. The Republicans in the US have been International Democrats for quite some time.

I have done a little

Research on that, something every GOP member needs to educate themselves on & take into consideration.
