I denounce my Republicanism and embrace my Independence. I am a Conservative first, weather under a red flag or a blue flag. I support the choice of the unborn and as far as sexual promiscuity goes, I like how Charlie Rich said it, "no body knows what goes on behind closed doors". It should be kept that way to ensure that the rights of children are upheld! And to deviate and make public, what should be private, should be prosecuted as a crime a personal vice against the very thread that holds society together. This is a crime that intrudes upon the freedoms of others. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
no true conservative want to bend. I only want a better way to certify voter registration and prevent voter fraud. Very obvious o got away with murder in benghazi and stealing the election. romney/ryan take the high road and dont fight the ilegal machine. the only positive here is that o knows he didnt legitimately win and that the majority of americans dont value him as president.
Thank you Rush! I am so disgusted that so many Republicans start screaming that we must shift to the middle or never win an election again. And this is less than a week after losing an election that appears to be full of massive fraud, media silence, and thousands and thousands of our military voters being disenfranchised. What is the matter with people? I will not lay down my principles in the name of bipartasianship for political gain. Right is right and wrong is wrong. I refuse to give up my faith, my beliefs, sacrifice my children and grandchildren's futures so that communism and big govt can have total control. I will not stand down. I can not stand down. And I am thoroughly disgusted that our so called conservative leaders expect us to do so. If they are worried about their jobs, they should be, and not because of the liberal left but because of the people who trusted them to hold to our principles when we sent them there. If they can not do the job they were elected to do, it is time to replace them with someone who will at least try.
The party claimed to be not for gay marriage until they flip-flopped for political convenience a few months before the election.
What gets me is the amnesty. Turn on the TV, there's a GOP operative saying we should be open borders like the left. Not enough will stand up to it. Even Hannity's calling for it now. I guess to be fair though, Hannity carried major water for Bush, gives Rove credibility to this day and champions all Republicans no matter who they are, his only exceptions are for Ron Paul and Todd Akin.
Only RINO morons believe you build a party from the squishy middle down instead of from the base up. Romney lost because many conservatives didn't show up and vote and the morons are all agreeing Romney had to go too far right in the primary to win it. These people do not dwell in reality and are as out of touch with reality as they can possibly be. Cognitive dissonance doesn't even begin to describe these morons.
Just observing what they do and fail to do, in the absence of any explanations, I do believe it is this bad........
I’m sure that I am not the only one who has noted the conspicuous disregard on the part of prominent Republicans for the instances of probable voter fraud and the prospect of a systemic compromise of balloting, and this raises a big red flag in my mind. In my humble opinion, if the Republican leadership in America is unwilling to investigate or prosecute this case for reasons of sheer cowardice, then they are willfully complicit after the fact. If, however, as some have argued, their role has been window dressing, calculated to provide the illusion that patriotic, constitutionally-minded Americans have someone on their side, then their part has been no less than treason.
The failure of the Republican leadership to pursue an investigation of the balloting almost suggests what some Americans have asserted for years. These folks are almost completely disenfranchised politically, and are regarded as fringe dwellers, even by most conservatives. Their assertion being that for many years, the job of the Republican leadership has essentially been to run interference for the Democrats’ advancement of socialism. Why? Because the interests of the power brokers on both sides transcend parties. They have decided that America – and probably the world, eventually – will be an oligarchical collective, a global slave state managed by narcissistic elites whose nests have long since been feathered.
In such a case, it will take nothing short of Divine Intervention or civil war to save America.
This election has been most revealing about Christians, even during the primaries I thought Romney would never be selected, because he was Mormon and even Mr Graham listed Mormons as a cult on his website before endorsing him. Mormons are anti-Christ from what other Christians have told me, because they don't believe Jesus was God and that Mormons believe that like Jesus they themselves will become Gods ruling over their own planet (this is what I have been told). Yet those same Christians seem to have rejected Christ in favor of a Mormon. Christians are told not to even say a greeting to such a person.
I have seen and heard Christian leaders and commentators tells us that God told them that Mitt was going to win, that is was God's will, even Glen Beck (who I believe is also a Mormon) said that all the set backs in the campaign was God's doing because he was going to make it overwhelmingly clear who he wanted as President. So Christians backed and supported and voted for what they believe is an anti-Christ (Not The Anti-Christ but an anti-Christ).
What does this say to you? Well after losing, now Mr. Graham comes out and says what the Bible has all along said "No human leader has the power to solve America’s most fundamental problems." In fact not just America's but the World's problems. This is nothing new. Psalms 143:6 says "Don't put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there." and Jeremiah 10:23 says "O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." and Romans 3:23 says "For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard." Man rule only leads to what Ecclesiastes 8:9 says "All this I observed while applying my heart to all that is done under the sun, when man had power over man to his hurt."
Remember, Jesus taught us to pray in the Lord's prayer for God's Kingdom to come on Earth as it is in heaven. Doesn't that signal a change? Isaiah 33:22 says "For the LORD is our judge, our lawgiver, and our king. He will care for us and save us." He will do so by means of his Kingdom. Daniel 2:44 says "And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever," Notice, that it will not be in the hands of People.
So now only after losing does it seem people run back to God. (Glen Beck did say God sucks sometimes, How disrespectful because God didn't do what you wanted). If fact I hear Christian all the time talking about the end or the rapture so I don't understand why they are trying to save a sinking ship when they are going to be lifted away (unless they don't really believe that). I have never read on single scripture that even indicates that God is backing the US. In the battle of Armageddon all the governments are against God. So why are you trying to save a sinking ship especially when God is sinking it.
Mixing in with Politics only makes you compromise your Christian principles. When the nation of Israel put their trust in the might of the nations around them God called them a Harlot. Ezekiel 16:28-30 says "You played the whore also with the Assyrians, because you were not satisfied; yes, you played the whore with them, and still you were not satisfied. You multiplied your whoring also with the trading land of Chaldea, and even with this you were not satisfied. What a sick heart you have, says the Sovereign LORD, to do such things as these, acting like a shameless prostitute."
Election after election Christians go from one politician to the another never satisfied. You had George Bush for 8 years and yet he did not satisfy you. When they tried to make Jesus king, he ran away. Why do you think he did that? Remember in Luke 4:5-6, "Then the devil took him up and revealed to him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. I will give you the glory of these kingdoms and authority over them," the devil said, "because they are mine to give to anyone I please. I will give it all to you if you will worship me." To have power in any of the Governments of this world requires one to bow to Satan.
So all a politician has to do is tell you what you want to hear (like a lover who only wants one thing) and never follow through (like George). So you get yourself dirty for these men, you violate bible principles as you support them, spewing out hatred and abusive speech, which is a violation of Bible principles. 2 Timothy 2:24 says "A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people." This is not me saying this. Yet I can't believe the conduct of Christians, vicious, lying and downright hatred, I had a Christian pass along clearly racist images. See what this stuff cause Christians to sink to, they become like those whom they are against.
I came on this site once and basically tried to warn people about this and from the comments I believe if in the presence of some of those commenting I would have been physically assaulted. So I left, because I don't want to generate that response in people. However this is so serious, I am only asking you to do your diligent research, get into the Bible, trust only in God.
Thanks for listening.
And that's the truth! I have been thoroughly disgusted at the rush to "bipartisanship" being made by the Republicans. They should be ashamed of themselves.
Conservatives did not need to moderate their positions when they chose GW I, GW II, Robert Dole, McCain or Romney. This seems to be a pattern and no one is to blame but the voters. We are the ones that choose the nominee. We had some good conservatives who either ran in the primary or strongly considered it this year. The voters rejected them.
So enough of this BS whining from Rush, Levin and others that somehow this is not our fault. It damn well is.
If the vote count is to be believed, over half the voters voted for Romney and a large number of Republicans/conservatives did not vote, theoretically on principle. Sounds like a strong representation of conservative principles to me. Conservative principles should not be abandoned. As others have stated previously, we need to better communicate, and we need better communicators/representatives of those principles.
This is a very important point, and it dovetails with our discussion yesterday about the Big Tent. The problem with "core" values of conservatives is that too many conservative candidates fall for the media trick of focusing ONLY on God, Guns, and Gays. So an honest guy like Santorum or Herman Cain keeps trying to answer the media as if the media really wants to know.
They don't want to know. They just want to be able to spin conservatives as misogynistic homophobes who want to shoot people.
The media never asks a Dem candidate about socialism, debt, and the serial lies. They NEVER do that. The Dems never run on their actual agenda, which is to diminish the status of America, and make us into a nanny-state socialist country like most of Europe.
Reagan showed how to combat this problem. Whenever the media asked Reagan about abortion, he always said, "Well, until science determines when life begins, I always say 'err on the side of life.'"
That's all that needs to be said about abortion when you are running for office. It works.
I call this Reaganizing the response. Act like your core values are a given, and move the media past that, so you can focus on selling the greatness of individual liberty and self-sovereignty.
Conservatives who refuse to learn this lesson will ALWAYS lose elections.
The Left has some on our side chasing their tails again. The issue in this race is voter fraud, Romney didn't get beat, the election was stolen. The Obama Regime threw open the gates to Mexico, and bought votes with foodstamps.
I think Rush got this wrong.
Doesn't everyone recall all those news stories about the need for progressive Democrats to refine their message to appeal to more Americans after the 2010 shellacking? Doesn't everyone recall the vastness of the mea-culpa cries by leftists bemoaning their extreme positions on abortion, gay marriage, Obamacare, Dodd/Frank, climate change, etc.?
I have only one-thing to say to Rush - DITTO.
Republicans have to stop eating themselves. They have to regroup and ask for a recount and stop the confirmation of Obama through the electoral college. FOX News and everyone who has power in or through the media has to step up and so something!!!!!
The Tea Party could ask for legal support in each State and come forward every single day through all possible channels. We need to get active and fight. We are in the U.S.A and not in Indonesia or Kenya!!!!! Parallel to that, Obama should be asked to finally proof his eligibility. There must be one honorable Judge in this Country!!!!! Where is Joe Arpaio? Where is Glenn Beck? Where is Donald Trump? Where is Mitt Romney? Where is Paul Ryan? Regroup and fight back!!!!!
Obama should be asked to prove his eligibility. You know, Trump and Arpaio have been on the front lines of that.
Yes, but everyone seems to start something and then stop.......do they get death threats? I am waiting for someone to do something, especially regarding the voter fraud! I am sick and tired of Petraeus and Mrs. Slutlove. The Obama regime has always a sex scandal to distract us from the real issue.
Bingo. I have turned off any news that suggest the right must change their positions and "get a bigger tent". The tent has always been open for all to come in, the left is just constantly peddling the idiocy and those people lap it up.
I liked Rush's amnesty plan yesterday. Give the illegal immigrants amnesty but they cannot vote in any election for 20 years. We'll see if the Dems really care for the illegal immigrants.
The GOP seem like scared chickens after the loss. Panicking that we have to change our positions on x,y,z. That is the reason that they lost. They don't stick up for the principles and values that are of conservatism. I wouldnt have been so bummed out last week if I knew that house Republicans had spines and espoused conservative values. They just don't get it why we lost.
Rush - Here are your choices
Get the masses to demand a full recount to uncover the OBVIOUS FRAUD
Let's see what you are really made of!
YOU GOT SCAMMED just like we did !
YOU were played - The Dems outsmarted YOU!
It has to be said and asked.
I have been conservative and a Republican my entire life - I am convinced that we are now literally watching the make-up peel and the costumes fall from these Kabuki dancers.
You're tough Joe, but it's the truth. If someone like Rush doesn't demand a full re count, then he needs to get out of the way for us to.
I'm beginning to wonder if perhaps the Republican Party is ready for the leadership this country and the world requires. If abandoning your core principles, (led by a pundit class that has never run for office and is just as insular as the beltway,) then we are not ready for leadership. Pandering to any group is not leadership and certainly won't work with the ME.
It is time to take a stand my fellow Americans. I started with Bill Kristol and the Weekly Standard this morning. Where will you start and with whom?
I will start in my state- North Carolina. The Federal government is now a corrupt lawless one party system. We will have little to fall back on except the States once they flip the Supreme Court
We have had setbacks but I feel good about our work here. In 2010 we elected the first Republican House and Senate in 100 years. We passed a marriage amendment. In 2012 we changed that to a super majority in both the House and Senate and a Republican Governor. We may even get a Republican Lt Governor after a runoff/recount.
We will pass voter id law, work at voter fraud, tighten immigration enforcement, take back our schools, reverse a century of gerrymandering....
You need to foster State media. Kick the liberals out of the business! National media including and especially FOX is the enemy. They all are married economically to the establishment. Identify the enemy! I love your posts and opinions. I am serious about this recommendation. Just like big Government we need to fight big National communications. They are all the same.
Well, yes and no. If Rush is right, then why didn't a more conservative candidate win in the primaries, like Santorum or Perry? I think Rush is basically right, but you need a better messenger, like Marco Rubio or Rand Paul. Also, Republicans have to come to grips with the fact that: (A) You basically have a lot of dumb and uninformed voters out there and (B) You have a mainstream news media and a clutural television media that is far left and is constantly trashing Republicans.
Face it, when the bulk of the population is getting its "news" from The Daily Show, The View, David Letterman, The Tonight Show, Us magazine, Rolling Stone, and radio shows like "The Pimp With A Limp," you are in serious, serious, trouble. There was a good reason why Obama ONLY went on all of those shows. I don't really know how you overcome all of that media and cultural bias. Add to that the fact that Obama promises everything to everyone in his quest to transform this nation into a socialist paradise, and you have a deadly combination when it comes to trying to defeat a Democrat for president.
The only answer I have is NOT to give up and NOT to give up your principles. If you do, then you're no better than being a Democrats light, just like in Great Britain, and we can all see how well that's working out for them. But the key is to make inroads in the mainstream and cultural media, and I really don't know how you can do that. Maybe the only way to do that is to get a conservative from Hollywood to run for president. Don't think we can find one? Hmmm, I seem to remember a fellow by the name of Ronald Reagan. He started life out as an actor, didn't he?
At the same time it did not help that the "conservative media" like Ann Coulter threw all the conservatives under the bus beating the drum of "electability" and trying to argue that Romney is "the true conservative".
If we are serious, we should start seeing conservatives take the needed steps. Here is an article about the slow train of fifty years of mistakes http://www.worldmag.com/2012/11/slow_train_coming
As long as we continue to send our kids to government schools and continue to believe pragmatism is more important than principle, we will never see the change that is needed to correct the way we are going.
Senator Santorum won just as many states as Reagan did in 1976. Then Reagan came back & won in 1980. I still think he is the best option. I think he would win!
This is my problem with El Rushbo. He is so naive. Do the Dems HAVE any core principles except the fundamental transformation of our great country into a second rate, less prosperous one?
You may have answered your own question ;)
The leftists have distilled out some very core principles common to all the various forms to totalitarianism, marxisism and globalism that have preceeded thiers. They stick to them, providing a common bond.
Witness how quickly the islamists have integrated into the Democratic Party dispite isalm being fiercely antithetical to the left's women, homosexual, race, abortion, secular and and social platform. It is not because it is a big tent. It is because they all know where the tent pole is.
Rush is right! We had a real Conservative in Rick Santorum! Maybe like Reagan in 1976 & 1980 we can correct the mistake in 2016! There is no need to change our values! We are great in number. We just need to stick together!
Rove and his pudgy pink gang did in each and every conservative as they were presented to us....because they think they know better.
Karl Rove and the consultant class need to be completely disgraced and ran out on a rail.
Rove is more responsible for Obamacare and Obama, than any single individual on Earth. The Architect's advice to GW led to the Democrat take over of Congress in 2006, which culminated in Tarp, Obama, Obamacare, The Stimulus, Auto bailouts,...etc.
Karl Rove is a syphilitic infection. And we need some Penicillin.
THANK YOU, RUSH!!! He hit the nail on the head...the GOP is like a desperate girl trying to get a date. Willing to compromise any sound principle to make them sound more appealing, makes the GOP look desperate and stupid. I have been a card-carrying Republican for 25 years and after this election, I am dropping them like a hot potato! Not because my core beliefs have changed, but because I'm sick of a spineless group of RINOS telling me to change my core! Screw them! I will not change my view of abortion, gay marriage, fiscal responsibility, or personal responsibility! I also won't support a party that cuts and runs when confrontation is needed! The GOP didn't question a single vote and ran off on those of us who worked so hard to get the Imposter out! The Imposter didn't win by a landslide, and there were plenty of suspicious election reports that should have been investigated before cutting and running! I will be an Independent and all will have to work for my vote. Not that I believe we will ever have real elections after this. I believe we will indeed collapse into a banana republic thanks to the fools in the GOP.
