Conservatives Must Forgo Secession and
Other Fantasies and Work Within GOP

Daily Beast, by Michael Medved

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/20/2012 4:49:09 AM

Some fringe conservatives seem perversely determined to turn a stinging electoral defeat into an epic, sweeping disaster. That’s the deeper meaning of current talk about impeachment, secession, third parties, civil disobedience, and onrushing apocalypse. The Conservative Majority Fund has announced a new robocall campaign to build support for impeaching President Obama over mishandling of the affair in Benghazi, Libya, and alleged malfeasance on a host of other issues. Meanwhile, petitions demanding the secession of Texas, Alabama, and at least a half dozen other states have already gathered tens of thousands of signatures, while perennial presidential candidate Alan Keyes

What´s wrong with Medved? Why is he whining about conservatives wanting change from what we have now?

Does he not understand the federal government has ditched the Constitution for a socialistic form of government where "big government" takes care of its "special" citizens to the detriment of the producing citizens? Does he not see the revolution we may have to perform to change this un-American form of government? Did he not see how many ignorant voters decided they want their goodies, no matter how it hurt the USA?

We need a change we can believe in... NOW!

No, they mustn´t. To heck with the GOP. I don´t compromise my principles for a party and I don´t toe a party line just to beat the other guy. If the GOP has abandoned the rule of law and our founding documents, it has become an irrelevant party at best or an enemy of the state at worst.

What about the story that the GOP can´t challenge the DEMS on voter fraud?

If this is true, the GOP is dead. Start new.

Medved belongs to the howler monkey segment of the GOP. That is what makes his screetching so annoying. What is that old saying? I didn´t leave the party, the party left me?

How come conservatives must always change or work with the others, but liberals are never, ever asked to do the same?

In case anybody missed it. Big Sis is going to start monitoring Facebook for signs of bioterrorism or pandemics. I mean seriously how could a pandemic break out and people not knowing unless they saw it on facebook. And why would a bioterrorist announce his plans on FB? No,the real reason she´s going to monitor FB is to see if there´s an organized revolution being worked on. Even so,this is pretty silly considering FB is largely a left wing thing.

We just lost an election because they used the full force of the popular media to ridicule us and spread relentless vitriol about us and because they used voter fraud and bribes and because they silenced us and blackmailed us and sabotaged us and because they accused of us racism and every other vile thing they could think of and now we need to act better? Do I have that right?

Is it insane to want to escape a thief? Is it fantasizing to wish to be free? If so, our founders had similar dreams. If this gets more serious, I may move to a secessionist state - if only to live in a Free America.

Save this article. There is wisdom here.

Previous posters notwithstanding, this is NOT another GOP insider "we must compromise to get back in" piece!

When we get past the anger stage of our grief (natural, and appropriate) and we´re ready to actually get back to WORK trying to save this country (because there is no other alternative except to camp out in one or another self-debilitating stage of the grief process) Medved is speaking truth.

Agreed: we despise the elitist, D.C. wing of the GOP, and we WILL NOT concede the Constitution or our God-given rights! So... now what? That´s where Medved is now, while most of us are still hurt, angry and bewildered.

When you´re ready to get back in the saddle, when you´re ready to posse-up again, when you´re ready to think clearly about what we can/must actually do to educate and win back the electorate to rational, conservative principles... go back and read Medved´s article again. He´s speaking wisdom. It´s easier to continue capturing the GOP and utilize it´s resources to educate the voting public than to start from scratch.

Sure, I love the idea of a new, Constitutional party--but that´d be like some B-17 bomber pilot flying over the just bombed, burning Pearl Harbor and telling his navigator to chart a course for Tokyo. Emotion and determination will not suspend the realities of logistics, time and distance.

Nor will it deflect the very real bullets of an enemy that´s playing for keeps.

Kathleen Sebelius’s Resignation Hands
Republicans A Golden Opportunity

Kathleen Sebelius is resigning, and Rachel Maddow is right to not be happy about it, not one little bit. For once, I completely agree with Maddow’s analysis. This surprise resignation presents Republicans with an unexpected opportunity to refocus the conversation on Obamacare’s negatives, offers a chance to force vulnerable Senate Democrats to take a hard vote on Obamacare six months before the midterms, and serves to disrupt what had been a positive few days of media spin for the health care law into another conversation about its many failings. About a month ago, in a conversation with a Senate Democratic

Former 5th District U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Ruston, who resigned abruptly last summer to take a job in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s Cabinet, said he won’t rule out a run for his old job next fall. Alexander, who won six terms in the U.S. House beginning with the 2002 election, said he has been saddened by the scandal that has rocked his successor, U.S. Rep.

Democrats plan to turn out thousands of African-American voters this fall, in an effort to hold the Senate majority. The challenge is that some of them aren’t yet registered to vote. Which begs the question, after opportunities to elect and re-elect the first black president, why would an African-American choose this year’s midterm elections to finally jump from the sidelines and into the game? This question especially matters given that contests in North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Michigan and Louisiana will help determine control of the Senate. Democratic strategists believe there is low-hanging fruit in the black populations in Arkansas and Louisiana, where Democrats

A plane crash at Smolensk in Russia four years ago wiped out the Warsaw leadership. It used to be seen as an accident. Now, after Putin’s games in Ukraine, people aren’t so sure. Four years ago this week, Polish President Lech Kaczynski was killed in a plane crash near the Katyn Forest in Russia where he was flying to honor the 22,000 Polish officers, lawyers, priests and professors slaughtered there by the Soviets 70 years before. Ninety-five other military, political and public figures including his wife died on that plane. One of the more heartbreaking details to emerge was that First

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York Times

Later in the day Heather, who is also a lobbyist, informed the Post the text of her counter-suit. It published a follow-up. The documents, which you can read below, did

President Obama‘s former body man Reggie Love is — ahem — loving life. Specifically, life outside the White House. Thursday, The Mirror spotted him at lunch, dining al fresco at BLT Steak, a short sprint from the White House. If the 32-year-old was ever a tense, stressed out aide in a suit, you wouldn’t know it. He was relaxed, at ease, and sipping lemonade as he chatted away with what looked to be a longtime female friend, possibly a former coworker. So, of course, The Mirror listened in.

President Obama met privately Thursday with Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor, amid accusations by her GOP opponent that she’s afraid to be seen in public with the president. A White House aide said Mr. Obama “visited briefly” with Ms. Davis following his remarks at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin to mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. The meeting took place after reporters traveling with Mr. Obama had been moved into vans, so they didn’t witness the meeting.

He argued that an Israeli announcement of 700 new housing units for a neighborhood in Jerusalem were what did in the talks. “Poof, that was sort of the moment,” Kerry said. “We find ourselves where we are.” This is an amazing claim, especially when the housing units are not in a settlement—but are in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, in a location that every Israeli and every Palestinian knows will be part of Israel in

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling.
