GOP Announces Declaration of Principles For Why You Should Vote Third Party
His post in full.
This is part of the reason I gave up on politics and stopped identifying as a Republican. There is no point supporting a Team of Losers who furthermore don’t even actually have the same goals in mind I do. Not that that would make a big difference, as they are Losers, and cannot advance their goals.
Short and sweet.
More and more it’s become obvious that the GOP needs a different base and the base needs a different set of politicians to support.
I have to quote the headline and subhed of the National Journal link above showing Mitt’s the frontrunner in the GOP for 2016.
Mitt Romney Is the 2016 Republican Front-Runner
This is not an “Onion” story.
How funny is it that they felt the need to make that clear?
More and more people are seeing the humor. I’m telling you, 2016 is going to be funnier than 2008 especially since non-hyper-partisans are just refusing to take the hilarity seriously anymore.
More and more the Establishment and Elite types are believing idiocies that have no relationship to the real world so when they run for office on a platform based on idiocies like global warmmongering and not having a problem with a trillion freaking dollar deficit every year, well, it’s hard not to point and laugh.
They’re so insulated from reality that stuff like Obamacare is a talking point/election stance instead of the screwing with of all of Americans who don’t have special, new nobility/gov’t, health insurance. The GOP, with current leadership, will never repeal Obamacare absent a Soviet Union type collapse of the United States.
That non-Onion article links an interesting article about the poll. (Minitrue/Boston Globe link, you need to pay them to see the article with, I assume, the link to, I think, this pdf file poll where they use some weird landline/intertubes for cell phone only folks algorithm)
In a hypothetical 2016 presidential field, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney would be the front-runner in the Granite State GOP primary field, with 25 percent of the vote. Behind Romney are Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, at 18 percent, then New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, at 17 percent, and former Florida governor Jeb Bush, at 13 percent.
So the cuckoo bird who does not have nearly the national recognition of the rest in that bunch right now and what people do know are mostly attacks by Minitrue, the rest of the Dem party and the GOP establishment, is in second place.
To Mitt Romney.
Intellesting, funny and scary all in one. Wasn’t it already Mitt’s turn?
So I’m trying to figure out, do I want Rand Paul so maybe we can take the GOP back from the establishment tools or do I want some combination of Mitt, Jeb and Christie to complete the destruction of the GOP?
The reason I’m leaning toward Let It Burn is because if Rand Paul did win, against the combined chubby-fist banging of Dems, Minitrue and the GOP establishment, we’d have the sorry spectacle of Republican Senators siding with Senate Democrats against a GOP House and POTUS.
