Palin Floats Idea of Leaving GOP


"Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican nominee for vice president responded to a Fox News Channel viewer’s Twitter question Saturday about the possibility of her and conservative talker Mark Levin abandoning the Republican Party and creating something called the “Freedom Party.”

I'm not sure what to make of this. I'm not a big fan of either Palin or Levin, and I'm even a lesser fan of the Republicans and the Democrats. Would this be compromising the liberty movement? Or, as has been debated on the DP many times, can a skunk truly change its stripes?

When did Levin ever change his stripes

he's always been a neocon as far as I remember. No apologies either. At least Beck admitted he was wrong. I'd never help Levin do anything except make his way past the firing line.

"i have to leave the GOP,

benn gleck showed me i'm actually a libertarian."

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul



Of course it compromises the liberty movement.

They do this every presidential cycle to try to peel off the disenfranchised and harder core libertarians out of the GOP just before all the party elections for county and state party chairmanships and executive officer positions.

They did this the last two presidential cycles as well to make it as hard as possible for Ron Paul, since all of the above (well most) supported him and they know it.

Palin & Levin? Just what the country needs...

ANOTHER "Israel first" party.

what's interesting about this is

Palin's Earthquake stepped up to take committee seats in the GOP the same time many of us were going for seats to get Ron Paul the GOP nomination.

One idea that kept nagging me about the GOP is that it was fighting the Ron PAUL rEVOLution, not because it didn't like Ron Paul, but because the party was in a self destruct mode.. and Ron Paul was pumping new blood into the GOP that would keep it alive.

It was as if the neocons in the GOP wanted to kill the GOP to give us ONE Party, like Communist China, who the Democrats work hard to emulate.

The Earthquakers who took seats are not very interested in committee work as we are.. they bow out of parades and sub committees.. so, seeing this article, I'm looking forward to seeing how many Earthquakers will contine coming to meetings, my bet is not any.


Republican party getting too liberty-oriented? Just get a couple of Judas goats to lead the lower IQ members away and make the party irrelevant.

If Palin really wants to make

If Palin really wants to make a difference, she'll tell her followers to register Democrat and have them deliberately subvert and throw the top contenders under a speeding bus. The best way to destroy the the enemy is from within.

"The best way to destroy the the enemy is from within."

Which is exactly why we truly no longer have "two parties" - one to restrain the other.

This identical "invade and

This identical "invade and subvert" tactic is being openly discussed by Democrats, incidentally.

Again JCole et al, she is one of the many Chimeras

She works / is on retainer for Henry Kissinger and Associates; this has been known for years...

If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of superrich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite. – Gary Allen

How long has she worked for him, do you know?


Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

If they do this...

They will learn how hard it is for a political body to get ballot access in all 50 states. Maybe the Nazi Republican Party will challenge over 45000 signature lile they did in PA to Gary Johnson and other statewide candidates. Third parties in PA need 2% of the most votes in the last election. Most of the time it more than 500% the Nazi Republican needs to get on the ballot. Another sad thing is 3rd parties can't challenge the 2 major parties signatures to get on the ballot. I HOPE THEY start this new party and destroy the Nazi gop! Meanwhile I work in the Libertarian Party.

Levin & Palin - Two $elf-promoting

people with large sections of dead brain material.

Neither understands founding principles
Neither stands on principle unless it's politically advantageous.
Sound familiar?

I'll go with Matt Damon on this one...

Daily Paul cured my abibliophobia.

I like Palin I would join

The GOP is controlled by the elite, they changed the rules because they know we are coming.

Put Palin's 3.5 million Facebook friends and Levin's 5 million listeners and you automatically have the 3rd biggest political party in the US, not to mention others that would hop on the bandwagon.

What's interesting is all the people here that begged Ron Paul to go 3rd party but when somebody else does, it would split the vote. BS

I would vote Palin over Bush, Christie, Rubio, and all the rest with the exception of Rand or Mike Lee

She went to AZ to campaign for John McCain in 2010.

'Nuff said, isn't it?


That's the thing.They'll

That's the thing.
They'll take away votes from good people. They destroyed Ron, and they'll do the same to Rand.

Why start a new party? They could just throw all their support behind Rand or Judge Nap, etc?
This isn't about returning to the constitution or conservatism. This is about the old guard trying to jockey in to position for the next election.

They destroyed Ron to set up Romney.
They'll now destroy their own party and remake it under a different name to keep Rand out, now that he's making headways as a Republican.

McCain/Palin failed. Romney/Ryan failed.
Rubio hitched his wagon to McCain- he's toast .
They'll try to use Cruz to marginalize Rand next. Make Cruz out to be part of the new guard.
Anyone but Rand to them.

Costume Change

Same tired actors trying to do a costume change.

Beck, Levin, Limbaugh, Palin, etc looking for new homes now that they see they'll be on the wrong side of history.

They'll destroy whatever they touch. Just like they did the Tea Party.

Sarah Palin Announces Her 2016 Campaign Song...

Thanks for the down-vote there.Perhaps you've already forgotten

her 2008 song?

Carribou Barbie gets new playhouse, invites friends.

Says Ken spending too much time doing "guy stuff".

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

Bad idea..

this would simply split the GOP into three groups...Republican Party, Libertarian Party, and this New "freedom party" The Dems would love to see this because they would win in a massive landslide.

The only type of new party that could maybe succeed is a party that would pull heavily from dems and repubs.

And don't forget...

The Constitution Party


Oh yeah....

But I think you mean
"Christian Revisionist Dictatorial Party"

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

What they should do is;

"Stop being idiots" by attempting to form another (unnecessary) party that would "again" simply spread-out the patriots into too many parties. The fact this was mentioned makes me distrust the people thinking of such a thing to the point of wondering if they are working behind the scenes for the Democrats.
It would be far better to get rid of the Republican and Tea Party along with all the Republican and Tea Party traitors and put all the the remaining Patriots into the Libertarian Party and hit the Dems hard with one big, strong force they can't stop!

you mean tea party?

which is much more rand's cup of tea :-)

from what i can see the LP is a separate entity and takes equal shots at, and is at odds with the 2 major parties.

Good... I think.

Good... I think.
