Talk about a Third Party running as a Conservative alternative to the Republican Party use to drive me nuts. Michael Medved mocks advocated of going rogue as “Losertarians”. This has been coupled with the fact that those running as Third Party candidates tend to be boring beyond belief, except for maybe Ross Perot who was interesting to watch. This may be changing now as Sarah Palin considers starting another Party if Republicans in House follow suit and pass immigration reform.
Once again, I’ll point out the obvious to you: it was the loss of working class voters in swing states that cost us the 2012 election, not the Hispanic vote. Legal immigrants respect the rule of law and can see how self-centered a politician must be to fill this amnesty bill with favors, earmarks, and crony capitalists’ pork, and call it good. You disrespect Hispanics with your assumption that they desire ignoring the rule of law.
Folks like me are barely hanging on to our enlistment papers in any political party – and it’s precisely because flip-flopping political actions like amnesty force us to ask how much more bull from both the elephants in the Republican Party and the jackasses in the Democrat Party we have to swallow before these political machines totally abandon the average commonsense hardworking American. Now we turn to watch the House. If they bless this new “bi-partisan” hyper-partisan devastating plan for amnesty, we’ll know that both private political parties have finally turned their backs on us. It will then be time to show our parties’ hierarchies what we think of being members of either one of these out-of-touch, arrogant, and dysfunctional political machines.
It has been suggested that Palin not go with the Tea Party, but with something called the “Freedom Party“. I think trying to stick with the Tea Party would be better since so many Republicans identify themselves with it. It would be much harder to get those same Republicans to start a brand new Party. Success in 2016 would be hard to measure or have a bar set too high that would doom it to failure if a new Party route was taken. I would think there would need to be a number of Congressional candidates and state level ones as well that had to win regardless of the Presidential outcome. While I am sympathetic, and getting more frustrated with current Republican Party leadership, breaking away right now may only help the Democrats even more. I am thinking a power Republican Party ticket would be with Rick Perry and Sarah Palin.
