The Republican Party is a
Political Insane Asylum

Canada Free Press, by Jeff Crouere

Original Article

Posted By:snowcloud, 11/14/2012 12:18:03 PM

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” Albert Einstein In the end, it was another Democratic Party rout. On Election Day, President Obama defeated Mitt Romney by over three million popular votes and 126 electoral votes. The President won every battleground state except one and ushered in to Congress two more Democrats in the Senate and at least seven more in the House. While Obama recorded seven million fewer votes than in 2008, Romney was one million votes shy of reaching John McCain’s losing total.

Crouere speaks truth to power and as such, will be anathema to the Romney sycophants.

The repub party is either going to make a significant shift in returning to its core principles, and quickly, or they will have no chance to recapture the few supporters they can.

I don´t believe they can br saved.. I think there are to many Republicrats that are statists too. Or they´ve been in DC so long they think they own the place and are part of the "screw them, their my constituents club". There are a whole lotta of u s who will never hold our nose again to support a party that continues to snap defeat from the jaws of victory repeatedly.

Yep, but what most don´t realize is that the Republicans causing the losses are Libs in drag...Purge the party of all RINO´s and other Libs and start over!

Almost correct. Many of those "savaging" conservatives are others who call themselves conservatives. If those of us who are conservative had acted we would have added President Jack Kemp to our history of great Republican Presidents.
Reading posts on this site all season it was obvious to me that we were picking apart each candidate who was a conservative to Mitt Romney. Some of them blew their own campaigns apart.
Mitt Romney is a good man with a good record in business. He is not a movement conservative. I respect his accomplishments and would have preferred that he win the election as most here would have.
There are some who won´t be happy until we nominate a candidate who is pefect. That is to say, some will never be happy.
In the meantime, I´ll go back to reading Kirk, Buckley, and Burke while assessing which conservative can win. That candidate will have my support.

The writer as well as the first couple of posters continue to overlook one basic reality: we have to choose a nominee from among the ANNOUNCED candidates. You cannot make up your own favorite superhero candidate, or coerce someone who doesn´t want to run into doing so. Why is that so hard to grasp?

And as to the 2012 hopefuls who may have been more conservative than Mitt (Santorum, Bachmann, Perry, Gingrich, "9-9-9" Cain) each one of them fell short FOR A REASON. There was no RNC plot against any of them, and none would have had a ghost of a chance in the general. It would have been 1964 all over again.

Romney and his campaign made mistakes, no question, but those conservatives who continue to trash this fine man who gave it all he had ought to get off their asses and get in the game themselves.

It looks like the name calling loonies who were with us last week are back name calling ( Rinos,), etc. again. An interesting letter in last week´s local rag was from one lady, who admittedly didn´t vot for Romney because he isn´t a Christian, or some such nonsense.

We don´t need excuses to goof this thing up. When there is an election in a two party system, you go and vote for the person who most nearly represents your views, or, alternatively, against the person who doesn´t. Jo Jo the dog faced boy would have been my candidate if he had run on the Republican ticket.

I am embarrassed to share this planet with people who did anything else.

Romney was an excellent candidate with a perfect background that not even the democrats could uncover a scandal. And a beautiful family to boot. Shame on those conservatives who nitpicked his positions and didn´t vote for him. Are you happy now that you made your point? Jerks!

FTA: “Romney tried to make the entire campaign about one issue, the economy. As a result, social conservatives were given no reason to vote.”

-If social conservatives really thought that they had no reason to vote they are devoid of reason itself. If they believe Obama will address their moral political issues more favorably than Romney would have, they are deluded.

-Romney picked a tea party favorite as his VP running mate.

-As for Ron Paul delegates, many of them behaved like thugs during the nomination process. You don’t invite thugs to a party.

The author of this article is correct about one thing: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

As long as social conservatives continue to believe that our nation would be better off by letting social and fiscal progressives run our government as a result of the religious right withholding support for sympathetic but non-evangelical fiscal conservatives, our country will continue its downward spiral. And that is truly insane.

As a Christian conservative, I have to take issue with those who claim that his loss is the result of evangelicals who did not support Romney. I´m an evangelical, as are many of my friends, and we all supported him, campaigned for him and voted for him. What´s more, from what I´ve read about our demographic nationwide, the vast majority did the same. That´s why I´d say the evangelical argument is a weak one, though not unexpected, given that there were those who, during the primary, regularly trashed anyone who preferred someone other than Romney as "an anti-Mormon evangelical" and accused people who disagreed with MR politically of religious bigotry.

In reality, I believe that conservative turn-out was better and the vote count was more favorable to us than the fraudulent records reflect. The problem is, we´ve been had, both by the Dems and by our own leaders in the GOP who won´t fight against lying and fraud. There has to be a better way to run a party.

Other then Romney the stupid party (the Republicans) did not have anyone who could have won the election. I think that millions did not vote for Romney because he is a Mormon. If will be even worse in 2016 if Hillary Clinton, or some Obama clone, gets the Democrat nomination. Then besides the candidate you will have both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton out there campaigning for whoever the Democrat candidate turns out to be.

Frame’ BLM’s Neil Kornze in a poster

The high-handed, armed sniper-backed Bureau of Land Management, which retreated from Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch on Saturday, will be back. BLM will be back because they never go away. Their harassment campaigns against hard-working land owners and ranchers goes back more than 20 years. For 20 long years, BLM members have worked non-stop at what boils down to trying to frame Rancher Cliven Bundy. It is time to ‘frame’ Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid point man Neil Kornze. Frame him in the kind of poster that identified cattle rustlers down at the local post office in days of yore. That way, Kornze

In the most intense publicly-fought battle against Big Government since the election of Barack Hussein Obama, it’s We the People 1, Bureau of Land Management boss Obama, 0. With their 200 snipers, helicopters, SUVs, snarling dogs and tasers, the fast-talking, high-handed BLM has retreated from the arena. There are some who would say outright that the BLM cut and run, hightailing it off of Cliven Bundy’s ranch, and some would be right. One thing to set the dogs on protesters and taser one or two when your government bosses are backing you up. Quite another when hundreds of folk are driving from hours

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

Don’t believe Internet headlines—no matter from which source—warning that Democrats have “major hurdles” after the latest poll. “Former top Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod acknowledged Saturday that Democrats face tough challenges in November, following a new Associated Press-GfK poll that shows voters increasingly appear to want Republicans over Democrats to control Congress.” (FoxNews.com, April 6, 2014) Voters out on the hustings for November midterms don’t want donkeys; they don’t want elephants.

Sinclair Lewis was wrong—when fascism came to America, it was actually wrapped in a rainbow flag and wearing an ascot. How else can one describe the ongoing left-wing commitment to the stamping out of free speech, whenever that speech contradicts the gay agenda, as well as other parts of the “progressive” platform? With the resignation of newly-minted Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, the “progressive” Left, especially its social wing, has once again shown itself to be the enforcers a political correctness in speech and thought that ought to be chilling to any person who actually cares about individual liberty.

While the worst administration in American history has been perfecting the Big Lie that all dissent to their policy stems from conspiracy theorist wackos, they are the biggest conspiracy of all. At this stage of the Fundamental Transformation of America, the wake up call should be glaringly obvious. The administration controls the ‘news’. They control the narrative. They call the shots. They do the branding and the smearing with the name-calling they intend to make stick. While various agencies under the control of the administration paint patriots as dissidents, the EPA, their lead agency for change, has been using Americans—including children—as lab rats. “Report:

Proof positive that the big global warming/climate change scam has forced pollution off the global radar screen is coming out of China, where Henan Province has been selling canned air to its residents for more than a year. Bottled air is selling like proverbial hot cakes in smog-challenged China. “Chinese multimillionaire sells eight million 80-cents cans of fresh air in ten days as pollution levels climb to record highs.” (Daily Mail, Feb. 1, 2013) “Chen Guangbiao, who made his fortune in the recycling business and is a high-profile philanthropist, is selling soda pop-sized cans of air, purportedly from far-flung, pristine regions of China

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
