That is the headline we will see in November of 2008!
Startling, isn’t it? I mean… to suddenly see it in print. Nevertheless, that is exactly where this election cycle is headed… at full speed!
The Republican Party has ceded the 08 elections. They have no one to run. The candidates they are putting forward are all sacrificial lambs. None of them can win. The irony in all this is… the GOP knows it!
Come on folks! Let’s face it! The GOP has collapsed. It is effectively without leadership on the national level. How else to explain the utterly disgraceful last few years of GOP control in the Houses of Congress and the office of the President?
Look, the President is not a conservative. He never was. Anytime one feels compelled to qualify one’s conservatism by placing the word “Compassionate” in front of it… then one’s conservatism is questionable! Need I say more?
There is absolutely no conservative leadership in the Congress. None, whatsoever. Conservatives do not act as the elected Representatives and Senators who sail beneath the GOP colors in Washington. Conservatives do not allow themselves to be steam-rolled by a bunch of limp-wristed Lefties. The GOP crowd currently occupying the Congress does! It’s pitiful to watch. My own Senators are poor excuses as representatives of the red state of North Carolina. I fully expect both to be brought home next election.
The GOP is in disarray. It is ineffectual as a political force. It offers no more obstruction to the Socialist efforts of the Democrat Party than a speed bump at the Daytona Raceway! Frankly, the GOP is just taking up room.
When the GOP turned it’s back on it’s Conservative base, it committed suicide. It’s actions turned most of us conservatives away… forever. Currently, I’m looking for a CONSERVATIVE political Party with which to affiliate. I’ve had it with the GOP’s platitudes and promises and their lack of spine when the chips are down.
The Democrat Party is going to win in 2008 and they’re going to win BIG! They have no opposition. You can’t seriously believe that the pitiful field of candidates the GOP is offering up for President has a remote possibility of success? Can you? If you do, you need professional help… soon!
The thing I cannot understand… there are millions of conservative American voters out here in the boonies. Why do we not have our own political party? So we DON”T have enough juice to win elections! Ok! But… we have enough to SWAY elections, that’s for darn sure! Seems to me, if we were organized under our own banner, the other two parties would be compelled to come to us for support. We could withhold support from that party which does not favor our political platform and give our support to the party that does. That would give us more power than we have now as part of a party that does not value us and continually ignores us.
I’m serious about this! As a life long Conservative Republican, I am more than a little tired of my vote being taken for granted. Well, I’m not going to be taken for granted again! I will not vote for any of the Republican candidates already announced. I will, if I must, write in the name of a Conservative. I urge all conservatives to do the same.
I ask you, fellow Conservatives, what have we got to lose? We put the Republicans in power and we have learned that are unwilling, or unable, to carry the ball. Plus, they do not want us! I don’t know about you… but I got the message!
I have already contacted my State Board of Elections to learn about becoming a registered Independent.
If you should know of efforts to organize a Conservative Political Party in this country, I’d be grateful if you would leave a comment concerning those efforts.
