Do Republicans Care About Winning Anymore?

Original Article

Posted By: DW626, 9/21/2023 1:09:41 PM

As I sit back and watch the 2024 GOP race unfold, I have one simple question for Republican primary voters to ponder before they head to the polls early next year. The question is not meant to be rhetorical, nor is it meant to be tongue in cheek. As the race currently stands, former President Trump is leading every single Republican candidate — in every publicly available poll, at both the national and state level, by a considerable margin.

Just a discussion of polls. No discussion of the soft coup unfolding around against President Trump. Advice given: abandon President Trump because the Dims really hate him. That’s not a solution. That’s a dodge. “Let’s just move on and maybe they won’t do it again if the new candidate doesn’t disrupt their war profiteering.”

Clearly the RINOs do NOT want to mess up the DC Uniparty Criminal Cabal's corruption pipeline of money from the treasury to their bank accounts, and THAT is the most important thing. Stealing money is THE primary goal of all the DC political hacks, and power and politics take a second position if there is a choice to be made. They hate Trump because he isn't corrupt and can't be corrupted - they never before met someone who couldn't be corrupted, and therefore he scares the hell out of them all.

The RNC is happy to be the do nothings as long as their funding continues. That funding allows the rinos like mcturtle to fund his sychophant candidates. I donate to the candidates, not the party

When a lie-beral Demon-Rat wants to pretend to be a conservative, they always use a fake name. And I'm pretty sure that "Carpe Diem" (which means "seize the day" in Latin) is not on this person's birth certificate!!!! He is a great conservative governor of what has become a solidly Republican state. He has a Republican majority in the state legislature that gives him pretty much any legislation he wants without much of a fight, if any. He appears to be a super solid conservative. Even the media in his state is fairly supportive of him. He is just a likeable guy. He has a beautiful wife and nice-looking kids. Of course, I was describing George W. Bush just a few years ago. And we all know what a disaster he turned out to be once he got to DC and discovered that far too many Republicans in Congress were going to join the Demon-Rats in "keeping him in his place" every step of the way. Other than 9-11, he flamed out quickly and was a huge disappointment to conservatives everywhere. Right now, Trump is ascending, while DeSantis is crashing in the polls. He has gone from 2nd place in most states to 3rd or 4th. More than anything, I question his decision-making skills. If he had just decided to stay governor and hone his skills for a few more years, and played Trump's biggest cheerleader for 2024, he would have been the undisputed frontrunner in 2028 -- with huge vote and financial support from Trump's base of voters and trump himself. Instead, he is seen as a backstabber and committed career suicide outside of Florida (where Trump also leads in the primary polling by the way). So whoever this lie-beral Demon-Rat "Carpe Diem" is, you get one vote buddy. Waste it as you will!!! I will be voting for the best man available for the job, Donald Trump!!!!!

My take is that this is a worthless article that seems to ignore the will of the voters. Trump is leading because many of us have indicated we intend to vote for him.

At the outset of the campaign, I was all for Ron DeSantis. But his campaign has made numerous bungles and has stumbled badly in the polls. This doesn't look like a formula for success to me.

You can't win with 53% of the vote already stacked against you. The Only Trump crowd has bought into the lie that Trump is the only real conservative and that absolutely everybody else is a Rino. But Trump was a democrat and friend of the Clintons for most of his life. He got very little done as president. And if by some miracle he wins back the White House, the democrats will retake it in 2028.

Re: #6 - At the bottom of the article is the following: "About Carpe Diem Carpe Diem is the pseudonym for a writer who was a speechwriter in the Trump Administration." Not quite the lie-beral Demon-Rat that you made him out to be. Besides, why does DeSantis need to hone his skills as governor, as well as be a cheerleader for Trump when no one suggested that Trump was wrong to go from New York billionaire directly to POTUS, as if the skills required to attain personal wealth should be desirable, if not mandatory, for future presidents. As far as Bush bashing, I suppose Trump's own words about being friends with Lee Atwater, whom he says contacted him about the possibility ofTrump being GHW Bush's running mate for re-election in '92 no longer matter. Trump says he asked Lee to check it out for him. Bush wrote at the time that the proposal was “strange and unbelievable." Just as well, as Trump wasn't through being a democrat, which didn't happen until 2009. I guess when you have an army of supporters who make ups phrases like, "Christie's Wray," to provide cover for bad personnel choices in office, as if Trump was perfect in seeking and following advice from Chris Christie to fill a key position within the Trump administration, then you have it made as a politician.

Every single Lucianne poster could vote for Trump, but it still won’t be enough if 53% of the population will not vote for him. The hatred for Trump in the media, the Democrats, the independents, rinos, and others are enough for Trump to lose again.

RFK, Jr. as a third-party candidate 13 replies

Should RFK, Jr. run for President on the Democrat ticket or move to a third-party ticket like Teddy Roosevelt did? Even as President Joe Biden leads in the 2024 primaries, Democrat presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has higher favorability and lower unfavorability numbers than either President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, (Trump 43%, Biden 41%, RFK, Jr. 14% unfavorability) according to a new poll by The Economist/YouGov. Rasmussen reports that a survey also revealed that twenty-five percent (25%) of likely Democrat voters would vote for RFK Jr. in the 2023 primaries for President.

The White House is creating an office
to curb gun violence

Posted by DW626 9/21/2023 6:32:42 AM Post Reply
In the leftist lexicon, preventing gun violence is code for “gun control.” That’s why we should all view with deep suspicion the report that the White House is creating an office that will focus on “preventing” gun violence. Since the White House’s policies all encourage gun violence, the only avenue left to the White House to “curb” this violence is to grab guns from law-abiding citizens. If you read the article at The Hill, you see that, while it talks constantly about how the White House, congresscritters, and various groups dedicated to ending gun violence are excited about this office to end gun violence, the article is silent about anything concrete.

With the unconscionable persecution of the January 6th protesters, the unabashed government censorship of speech, the weaponization of federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the egregious abuse of presidential executive orders and emergency declarations, the American police state is no longer a hypothetical possibility but an increasingly indisputable reality. While imperceptibly evolving over many decades, the emergence of the American police state was significantly accelerated with the overreaction to the September 11, 2001 terror attack. Even more important was the Covid 19 pandemic that dramatically increased the momentum toward a police state as once a people are terrorized it is easy to impose a police state on them.

Feel good story of the day. A Texas serial killer who murdered dozens of elderly white women was killed in prison by his cellmate on Tuesday morning. Billy Chemirmir murdered 23 elderly caucasian women in Dallas and Collin Counties, stole their jewelry, and sold it for cash. According to the Associated Press, the first trial of Chemirmir for the murder of Lu Thi Harris, 81, ended in a mistrial. A single juror refused to vote guilty despite overwhelming evidence. Chemirmir was later convicted of Harris’ killing and the slaying of Mary Sue Brooks, 87. Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis a few weeks ago said he would not be seeking the death penalty

Et tu, Brute? On Sunday, The Washington Post ran an editorial by Allan Lengel, detailing “accusations of betrayal” in a small Michigan community known as Hamtramck, after the city council enacted a ban... prohibiting the display of Pride flags on city property. Oh, was I absolutely tickled to read this. (For a couple of reasons, actually.) Everything about Pride flags on public property is a disgrace, so of course I welcome and applaud this civic act—but the real treat was in the minutiae, because I have a penchant for schadenfreude.

Joe Biden's corruption is outdone only by the mainstream media's commitment to hide it from the public. Why propagandists posing as journalists would feel the need to continue covering for China Joe and his quid-pro-quo mafia family is a mystery (although reporters are so addicted to censoring truth and spreading disinformation that they probably don't know how to behave differently). To be sure, the public has known about the Biden Crime Family's notorious racketeering activities for decades. When a lifetime politician supposedly living on a "public servant's" salary becomes filthy rich, no thinking person has difficulty understanding that corruption is somehow involved.

Jann Wenner is a giant of rock music history, even though he never fronted a band, composed a hit song, or produced a gold record. As the co-founder of Rolling Stone magazine, Wenner became a tastemaking publisher; for years, anybody who was anybody in popular music got a mention in Rolling Stone. Wenner’s clout also allowed him to co-found the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. Wenner is also a devoted man of the left. Rolling Stone’s coverage has always been unabashedly left-wing, and its co-founding publisher earned his bona fides protesting in Berkley’s Free Speech Movement and working for hippie rags like Ramparts.

That question used to be rhetorical and used to signify a definite and emphatic yes to any statement. In 2023, however, it is less sure — particularly in light of one Catholic cleric who aired his dissenting opinion. Since the pandemic, the world has taken a turn toward moral lunacy, while the usual spiritual guardians are silent in their outrage. The idea that this medical hoax shuttered churches caused many to suspect a sinister underlying force. More and more Catholicclergy are voicing publicly their concerns about the direction of Pope Francis’s papacy in videos and podcasts.

On Wednesday, Old Joe Biden finally invited Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House, after refusing to do so for nearly nine months while his regime did everything it could to undermine the Israeli prime minister. The invitation came as Netanyahu met with the alleged president at the UN, and the two sat down for their first chat of Biden’s alleged presidency. Any meeting with Biden these days, however, will have its bizarre and inexplicable elements, and this one was no different.
