Look at cooper reeling back.

What a douche.

This is great news

This is great news! Alex is a good freedom loving man.

They thought they could do it

They thought they could do it without us.

Our movement would have gotten so much further had they welcomed it! The GOP would have become the future and would be the party leading the nation to prosperity.

They should have listened. We warned them. It's a damn shame I tell ya...damn shame.

But what does...

But what does the Flying Spaghetti Monster have to say? Do you want me to start quoting the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

I will if you don't knock off the other religious stuff.

In order for this to happen we must ditch McConnell, and Graham

and many more. Some you may not want to, like Jim Demint...who has waaay too much power in the wrong places.

Yes I Agree

State Senator Tom Davis is the best person to primary Graham. We absolutely need someone to run against McConnell, who can it be?

SteveMT's picture

Cooper was not looking very happy hearing this truth.

No sympathy for him.

He should. We don't care if people are gay and think they have

the right to be as miserable as everyone else! LOL!

Why would anyone who gives a

Why would anyone who gives a damn about this country want to be associated with the lying scumbag gop which was founded on obliterating the Constitution?

No, this should end with Dr Pauls retirement. Off to new lands my friends. Get behind the libertarian party and be ready to fight for real next time. Carrying signs and singing songs are fine but at some point you gotsta show what you're really willing to do for freedom.

Actually it was founded

on anti-slavery & brought together former Whigs & democrats, as well as African-Americans. I think it started out in the right vein but went wrong when it became the party of foreign expansion. I haven't decided myself which party to support, if I will support any at all, but I'm all for bold moves in the name of freedom!

Oops never mind, carry signs!

Oops never mind, carry signs! Sing songs! Hold hands!

Why? Because it is a TWO Party system!

Take over the "lying scumbag gop" like we are doing or have done in Nevada. You can if you try. Why? Because although third parties are a wonderful thought, the third parties are simply an annoyance to the two party system. Believe me I tried and now I feel that to take over both parties with LIBERTY minded people is the ONLY way to fix anything. Taking over at a local or county and doing it one county or area at a time is possible. It is tough but well worth the trouble, blood, sweat, and tears even while holding your nose because of the stench.

Like my friend Cynthia told the "occupiers" in Tampa, get up, get off the ground and join us in the belly of the beast.

This life is not easy but America is worth the trouble.

Right, Enjoy your socialism

Right, Enjoy your socialism and militaryism.

Its a little late

but better late than never. Actually I respect the guy for speaking the truth. That took guts for him to come out and say it on the devil box. I have to agree to agree with him. Yeah I know everyone has trust issues when they say stuff like this then stab you in the back. Think about it it's after the election and he has nothing to gain politically by saying this. I think the guy actually has thought about it and is figuring it out. This guy was on CNN the night of the election and you could tell he was devastated and the Democratic pendents piled on him. I think the guy realized how bad it feels to have someone kicking you when you're down. Some republicans will get sick of losing and start waking up. I know on my Facebook page every Romney supporter on there has been dead silent since the election. There are a lot of people thinking right now and it is not the time to get our jabs in. Let them think this through and let them wake up. Also I hear people talk about how some of the neocons are using our message as if its a bad thing. Let them use it all they want that is the goal of this movement isn't it. Our goal is to spread the message of liberty to everyone. Let them carry the water for us. Even if the one saying it does not really believe it that's okay because the people who watch him/her on the boob tube will. Let liberty ring!

As long as. . .

. . . they don't distort the message for their own ends.

“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” —Thomas Jefferson

Thank goodness!

Recent developments in secular ethics (UPB) have proven man can evolve beyond the endorsements of oppression, slavery, and violence peddled in the holy books. Religions as always are reinventing themselves in an attempt to keep people in the pews and money in the coffers. Their is no room for bigots in the peace revolution.


No, actually America must re-embrace her Maker and loudly proclaim God's SUPREMACY throughout the land. True Christianity actually HALTS the "oppression, slavery, and violence" of those who position THEMSELVES as gods. Dunno about "bigots," but Americans HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO DISCERN BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG. Our DECENTRALIZED government provides the PERFECT playground with which to "test" our various ideas of what a good society is - as long as we don't step on the Bill of Rights.

But secularism is a VERY JEALOUS GOD who JERKS ME TO MY KNEES in forced submission - in VIOLATION of our founding docs. Many people who reject any acknowledgement of God, typically falsely wrap their LICENSE in liberty - thus PURPOSELY blurring the two. "Liberty" respects OTHERS' liberty. "License" RESPECTS NOBODY BUT ITSELF. Big difference.

My copy of the Christian Bible condones oppression, slavery and violence. Where are you getting your information?

I suppose you only understand...

that which you choose to see.

Are you disputing

Are you disputing the Bible? If so, take it up with the ignorant uneducated shepherds who wrote it. The folks who thought that the world was flat and that snakes and asses can talk.

Minor correction

From previously intense study of the Bible, I can tell you that the OT makes reference to the "circle" of the earth. That tells me that there were globalists before cartographers. In related news, snakes and asses have been known to talk as well. Reports say speech is limited, but witnesses claim to have heard sucking sounds during the withdrawal of the former from the latter.

"The rich man writes the book of laws the poor man must defend, but the highest laws are written on the hearts of honest men."

"Every human being has every

"Every human being has every right to discern between right and wrong". They do so not because of some words on parchment subject to interpretation; rather because they breath and bleed. When it comes to morality, there are better guides than scripture considering one could cherry pick a verse to condone about any act one could dream up. And in fact have been used for exactly those purposes throughout time.

Liberty is a preferable condition. Humans are uniquely endowed with reason and emotion, thus are the ones capable of respect. License is a state fiction and not capable of respect.

Completely disagree...

but that's what's so great about America. Your family and/or community lives as you see fit and my family and/or community lives as we see fit. Decentralized government is a wonderful thing.

Personally, I do not discern between evil and righteousness because I breath. Because humans are uniquely endowed with sin, scripture guides my feet (when I let it). And that guidance and love of fellow man, parallels Constitutional Liberty perfectly. Christ IS liberty. IS the removal of the oppressors chains.

Brother Winston Smith

Certainly we have

Certainly we have irreconcilable differences. I believe violent religious fairy tales and concepts of slavery like original sin are a stain in human history; only serving to foster violence in the hearts of man. Being raised in the south and in the house of a Nazarene Minister and later in a Catholic home; I can tell you I know the pews are full of hypocrites, and the ranks of those who call them selves saved are full of those who are equally intellectually and morally bankrupt. All the while thinking they know, or know the one who knows the "true" meaning of the scripture which is a work of man with 10s of thousands of errors existing between the copies of of just one of the gospels.

I can humbly say that if the god of the new testament is indeed the god of the old testament; the one smiting with reckless abandon and then groveling like a child, only to again smite. Then I want nothing to do with that son of a bitch.

Is it any wonder that our human existence is plagued with violence and reverence for authority when people follow that as their moral guide?

It's obvious your eyes are closed.

I would suggest MORE READING and less opinion-developing from man (fallen) or wildly exaggerated and warped version of the Word.

If violence is what you seek to avoid, I would shun the Godless, COMPULSORY Central Government Planning of the 20th (and it's mountains of corpses).

NO, NO, NO!!!! DEAD WRONG!!!!!!!!!

No, the LEFTIST REPUBLICAN PARTY IS DEAD!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS NO FUTURE IN IT! Ron Paul folks MUST NOW STRENGTHEN THIRD PARTIES like the Constitution Party and the Libertarian Party! NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

We've tried the republican route AGAIN... to ANOTHER INEVITABLE (designed) FAILURE!!

F the R's!

Brother Winston Smith

We need a 2 pronged strategy IMO. Probably even 3

We need to continue fighting the establishment from within - in other words from the D and R parties. Why? Because they get the funding and publicity and the general public thinks of them as credible. We also need to get involved in the LP though in order to give us a chance to win even after the corrupt Rs and Ds do everything possible to steal the election from our candidate. GJ isn't perfect but I'm totally fine w/ him as our LP candidate. Maybe Rand can be our R. I don't know if we have a D yet but we should try to find one too. Kucinich has much wrong w/ him (especially on the economy) but at least he's open-minded and is anti-war.


if anything you are consistent and i respect that. lol

The name Republican has to much blood on its hands.....I agree it needs to go. The repubs can join the libertarian party if they want.

That would be my ideal progression. But....I'll still vote for RP as a republican in 2016 if he so chooses to run again.


I don't know if you noticed, but we elected Thomas Massie and Kerry Bentivolio, as well as re-electing Justin Amash.

If your only goal is the Presidency, you're going to lose over and over again. We need to take over the House, the Senate, AND the Presidency. Not just one.

It's much easier to take something over and steer it than it is to build some momentum from scratch.

Republican party is the easiest and best play we have. We will take them over and remove the leftists.

Eric Hoffer

In 2016 we might need to take over the IMF and UN

Wars are approved by the UN nowadays and congress is "informed" of that decision.

Taking over the House and Senate doesn't mean what it used to. :)
