Boo! Voters Prefer Third Party Candidate
Over Republican

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 11/1/2013 10:17:41 AM

The latest NBC/WSJ poll finds that more Americans would vote for a third party candidate for Congress than a Republican. 35% of voters prefer a Democrat, which has been steady for three years. Republicans, however, have experienced an 8-point swing against them since they took control of the House. Today, just 28% of voters say they would vote for a Republican for Congress, while 30% would opt for a third party. The GOP Establishment, engaged in open war against the Tea Party and conservatives, is simply committing political suicide. Listening to the consultant and pundit class who inhabit the "Acela line"

Comments:
That enormous sucking sound is conservatives and libertarians fleeing the Republican Party, and the Establishment doesn´t care. The Republican Establishment will either retain their access to the money and privileged or burn it to the ground.

Got Tea?

Imho, the republican establishment has no one to blame but themselves. We are where we are today, in part, because of them, imho. They have refused to accept with whom they are dealing in the democrat party. Or they are just dancing a Two Step. Either way WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH. Attacking Ted Cruz, for many, was the final straw, imho.

Give me a break. If Senator Cruz plays with the big boys, attacking as he goes, there´s no reason he should be immune from a backfire. I´m pretty sure Senator Cruz has no intention to whine about it. His supporters might think about refraining from doing that, too.

The McCains and Boehners and McConnells and Grahams don´t give a fat rat´s posterior. Their gold plated futures are not in doubt. Triple A medical care, cushy government retirement, speaking fees until they are so old they have to take the stage on a walker, paid positions on K Street, paid appearances as talking heads on television.

Why should they give a damn about We, The People? What do they care about the Constitution?

Their lives of ease are greased and to hell with you and me, and our grandkids sure don´t mean a whit to them.

These cretins have sold us out at every turn, and they are getting ready to do it again by giving the Mulatto Marxist Amnesty.

I´ll guarantee you, if the Mulatto can get a a Firearm Confiscation scheme on the floor of the House and Senate between now and the end of his reign of terror, the McCains, et al will sell us out on that too.

Am I ever going to vote for the He´s Not As Bad As The Democrat RINO candidate again?

Nope!

What the establishment doesn´t realize is that a lot of people in the base have come to the conclusion that many of the current Republican office holders are part of the problem, not part of the solution. They are unwilling to vote for these people under any circumstance. They will vote for someone else in a primary, vote for someone else in the general or stay home, but they will no longer vote for part of the problem.

Can anyone honestly point to one Republican accomplishment since Bush 43rd. Iraq-FAILURE, Afghanistan-FAILURE, No Child left Behind- FAILURE, John Roberts-FAILURE, McCain- FAILURE, Romney-FAILURE, Stopping Obamacare (middle of the night vote)- FAILURE, Fast and Furious-FAILURE, Bailout-FAILURE, Benghazi-FAILURE, NSA Spying- FAILURE, and the list goes on and on. But lets continue supporting them BECAUSE a third party can´t win.

Haven´t I been telling you folks that I believe a new Patriot Party will be taking roots by the end of the year.

You´re off base #3. Senator Cruz did NOT attack any republican upon reaching Washington. He merely began implementing the promises he made to the voters of Texas, which really rattled the establishment: Both democrat and republicans; that´s when they began attacking him.

There´s no doubt that Senator Cruz is the Real-deal; however, I will not vote for him should he become a candidate for the presidency of the US. I´ve had enough of non-natural born citizen(s) occupying the White House.

I would love to see a third party rise. I would work towards it and help make it happen.

Until it does, however, I will never help a dimCrat win office, not ever, so if I have to continue voting R for a while, I will.

I hope #9 is right - where is the new party? Where can I sign up! work for it! hold signs for it! give money to it?

I´m ready! I hope somebody else is. Or else the evil wins.

does anyone really think the Dems will leave their party?

If a third party is established it will draw from the republican party and the independent thus weakening the republican party and allowing the democrats to win once again.

We´ll be back to square one. It´s the direction, not the individual or party.

Well, #9, I guess it was some other dark-haired Texas senator who talked to everyone providing a microphone about the "surrender caucus", implying worse than that. It was so over-the-top that the not-Senator-Cruz dark-haired Texas senator had to make a halfway apology and said he regretted the term. Nah, it wasn´t an attack. And, by the way, who was that guy?

There are billions of dollars (think George Soros) floating around out there for the taking if a Republican congressman can be "persuaded" to stand with the liberals. Do you really think some of these rinos wouldn´t jump all over that. So what better way to insure that liberals never lose but by using the art of "persuasion" to divide us.

Just a hint that is the GOP Establishment and its apologists who are unrealistic and in denial. It may indeed be time for a "Third Party" (actually a new party that consolidates smaller conservative parties like Libertarian and Constitutional and draws GOP conservatives and "Reagan Democrats") to succeed. The political climate is more like 1856 than 1992.

Enough is enough.

This poll is meaningless.

First, congressional races are very specific to their districts, so nationwide polls tell you nothing.

Second, support for third-party candidates inevitably melts away as election day approaches. Most people considering voting for Libertarians or Greens change their mind and vote for Republicans or Democrats.

Third, the next congressional election is over a year away. Things change. It matters not a whit what the polls say right now.

#18 I think in a round about manner hit upon one of the major problems (there are many). We no longer vote for an individual we vote for a party. Thats why we nominated McCain and Romney knowing they were flawed cadidates but believing the Party would in the end win. Unfortunately the GOP is seriously flawed along with its leadership. Coninuing to vote for Republicans out of fear is not going to save this country. In fact it is a major reason most elected republicans ignore so many in their own party because they know so many are only motivated by party identification.The party will fix everything in these people´s minds. "The Party will fix everything" sounds like what Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini and Mao would say.

The assumption is that the 3rd party citizens
want is the Tea Party.
The reality is that citizens are tired of the extremism
and fighting from both sides and are looking for something
along the lines of a No Labels indy type party.
# 9 Cruz and DeMint spent the summer months
at town halls attacking Republican Senators
and Congressmen.
July 31 - "The Texas freshman senator and his senior aides are unleashing a barrage of attacks on their fellow Republicans
for refusing to support their plan .."
Cruz called Republicans by name-cowards, squishes
and the Surrender Caucus .
Any Republican who noted that the Democrats controlled the Senate and it would therefore be impossible to defund Obamacare was
labeled by Cruz and DeMint as " now supporting Obamacare ".
On Oct 2, in the weekly Senate luncheon,
Senator Kelly Ayotte held up a flyer from DeMint´s scurrilous organization with Cruz´s
endorsement on the flyer.
The flyer said that Ayotte supported Obamacare.
When she asked Cruz if he would renounce the flyer-he said " Absolutely not."
This past Wednesday, Cruz changed his tune and said he would no longer trash his fellow Republicans
with DeMint by falsely
accusing them of supporting Obamacare.
Too little, too late.

Glad to see I am not alone. The Moderates among us have screwed up the program all the while pointing their fingers at people like me. Ann Coulter wrote a nice article about how I, personally, by NOT choosing the "Candidate that can win" which is "The candidate I was told to vote for" is a serious problem. As if demanding real results is a call for "Purity". It is insane, and unbelievable.

I see many of the Moderates are out in force today. They are still using scare tactics to get us to keep voting Moderate. One poster even said what is needed is a Moderate Party, not a Tea Party. We HAVE a Moderate Party. It is called the GOP. Another poster said if we splinter off then that would make sure we get Dems leading the Country. He didn´t say that Moderates nominating Moderates was the problem. NO WAY, it is all of us Conservatives that ruin the GOP. Well I say fine and bye bye. Good luck winning dog catcher without us Conservatives.

Well #19: Ted Cruz did run an Anti-establishment candidate (and who doesn´t), the difference was he MEANT what he said.

As I remember Ted Cruz DID comment on how surprised he was by the defeatist attitude of the republicans in Washington soon after he reached the senate.

I thought of his comment as an observation. Unless you consider that comment an attack, I suggest you get your facts straight.

Rush has said numerous times that the elite GOP he sometimes hangs out with hate the conservatives in the party, specifically the Tea Party members. He says he thinks they are willing to lose a few elections just to get rid of us. I am ready to leave and take my chances with a new party. We may lose a few elections, then again we might not. I am very willing to take that chance.

To invert a nostrum ´Nothing is less powerful than an idea whose time has gone´. For sure, the GOP´s time has long gone; a corrupt, self-absorbed and unprincipled party of bag men, crony capitalists and WS hustlers. Of course, the usual suspects, addicted to the mush labeled republicanism, won´t hear it. No matter, their argument is driven by paralyzing fear and its cousin, cowardice. All this sturm und drang are the birth pangs of a new and vibrant party that actually stands for enduring principle.

We had a "no labels" party, #26. They were moderates holding hands with socialists.

The reality is not an avoidance of the extremist label by conservatives...who really cares? We´ve already been packaged and labeled by the msm from the get-go. All the rino GOP cares about now are labels.

The reality for most of the country is a desire to see truth and courage take a stand.

The GOP is no longer a conservative party. They have lost their base and nothing will bring them back. Thank God for Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Mike Lee...they were the only ones able to finally expose it.

My vote is about all I´ve got left to give to my country. And I refuse to give it to anyone who does not clearly state that we are fighting an ideology that wants to enslave us...and it´s first name starts with an "O".

You moderates are the problem with the party. You want reach across the isle. I detest the reaching. I remember when the liberals went out against smokers. It went like this:
1. We should only smoke in the balcony in theatres;
2. We should instead smoke only in the lobby;
3. We should instead step outside and smoke;
4. We shouldn´t smoke in Grocery Stores;
5. We shouldn´t smoke in restaurants, only in special smoking areas;
6. We shouldn´t smoke in restaurants;
7. We shouldn´t smoke in bars;
8. We shouldn´t smoke in our apartments;
9. We shouldn´t smoke in our cars if we have children.

Republicans reached across the isle, and reach across the isle until the Liberals got everything they wanted.
We shouldn´t start a new party, we should take back our party. Let the RINOS and those who want compromise to start their own party, in fact let them join the Demorats.

So the democrats are taking a big hit and encumbants are in trouble and the fledgling cocerels in the tea party mindset or common consensus will stay home in another snit fit that ensures us another 8 years of democrat socialism/marxism.

I wish they would reconsider. I am poor enough already.

The establishment republicans are what makes the term "grownups" make sense. Clarice Feldman wrote about Orwell´s preface to "Animal Farm"and his take on common consensus.

The common consensus the tea party idogmatically touting is dangerous to the future of the country.

Get real, get busy, and get ready to cooperate with the party leaders and take the country back.

Leave to chaos which is another name for hell to the democrats.

Sure, let´s follow the guys that have stood by and allowed the left to implement destructive policies, because if we don´t vote for the establishment GOP, the left will get elected and implement destructive policies.

You establishment GOP supporters sure have an interesting argument there.

Personally, I am immune to your name calling (e.g., snit fit). You sound like the leftists on MSNBC. The fact is that your precious leaders have blown it, but like so many Obama supporters, you refuse to see.

I like the fact that Cruz and others are taking it to the GOP leadership. We have to win that fight before we can really defeat the statists. The name calling and mud slinging won´t work.

Wall Street Journal, by Beth Reinhard    Original Article

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah launched an “anti-cronyism” agenda Monday with a column in the National Review urging the Republican Party to advocate populist, free-market reforms over tax loopholes, government subsidies and federal bailouts. That kind of Republican party, he writes “could not only unify and excite conservatives, but appeal to hardworking families in the purple and blue communities that President [Barack] Obama’s special-interest favoritism is leaving behind.” Mr. Lee is scheduled to continue the rollout with television appearances, town halls, a speech at the Heritage Foundation on April 30, and several pieces of legislation.

Will the real Republican Establishment please stand up? In the four years since the Supreme Court struck down fundraising regulations that effectively gave the Democratic and Republican parties a monopoly on large-scale political activity, a collection of Tea Party-affiliated organizations has arisen in Washington that competes with the GOP for campaign contributors, money and influence -- and over what legislation to push and which candidates to nominate. The groups, including the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund, have moved aggressively to kill legislation they oppose and oust incumbent Republicans they deem insufficiently conservative. Like the national Republican Party, which they

House Speaker John Boehner addressed the behind-the-scenes maneuvering by House conservatives mobilizing against his reelection as Speaker on Monday, telling Fox News host Megyn Kelly that he´s “confident” he´ll win reelection next year. “Some are suggesting you are not going to be the Speaker, even if the GOP retains control [of the House] in 2014,” Kelly told Boehner in an interview on her program The Kelly File on Monday evening. “I’ve heard those rumors before,” Boehner responded, seemingly referring to an unsuccessful coup attempt at the beginning of this Congress. “What say you?” Kelly followed up. “Listen, my members know me and they know

An Arizona conservative congressman is shining light on how President Barack Obama is using $3 million of taxpayer money to teach National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) officials how to lobby Congress. In the first of a series of efforts targeting wasteful government spending, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) wrote to House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) last week to pressure him to include language banning the Obama administration from spending money on the program. The program, highlighted by outgoing Sen.

Paul Ryan: Immigration Reform
is a Question of ´When´ Not ´If´
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Leah Barkoukis    Original Article

“To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws,” Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan said Wednesday, “it’s really a question of ‘when.’” Ryan, who was making the economic case for reforming our nation’s immigration system, was speaking at a breakfast hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Ryan called the nation’s immigration laws “chief” among the problems that are curbing economic growth. Noting the rate of retirement among baby boomers, Ryan said reforming the immigration system is necessary to fill future jobs. “Please know that we understand the value of immigration,” Ryan told the crowd. “We

A group of conservative House Republicans put a Medicare “doc fix” bill in mortal peril with their objections – but then acquiesced to a plan from GOP leadership to pass it without a vote. The vote was repeatedly delayed this morning as top Republicans scrambled to find the necessary votes for the legislation. Making the problem more difficult: the bill was brought to the floor under suspension of the rules, meaning it needed a 2/3 majority rather than the normal 1/2 majority. Huddling with leadership in an ornate room off the House floor, a group of GOP lawmakers who form

When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered? ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America. Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat.

Maine’s tea party governor, reared in poverty, is on a mission to reform the state’s welfare system. Gov. Paul LePage rolled out a four-proposal package on Monday that will get committee hearings in the legislature Tuesday afternoon. The reforms, which mostly tighten restrictions around the program, are part of an ongoing crusade against what LePage has described as a bloated program. “Big, expensive welfare programs riddled with fraud and abuse threaten our future,” he said in his state of the state speech last month. “Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not — and never will— create prosperity.”

On Friday, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund endorsed Matt Bevin, who is challenging Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in this May´s Kentucky Republican primary. Jenny Beth Martin, President of Tea Party Patriots and its Citizen Fund Super PAC, told the Washington Times, "Senator McConnell worked with the Obama Administration to raise taxes, has voted to raise the debt ceiling ten times, and has added pork barrel projects to further his own career instead of the needs of the American people." According to Ms. Martin, "That´s just not the kind of Senator Kentucky needs, and that´s another reason we are joining Tea Party members

One of the top Republican congressional staffers on the Benghazi investigation founded a consulting firm comprised of numerous former Clinton aides and a former CIA director accused of lying to Congress about the attack, Fox News reported Monday. J. Michael Allen is the founder and managing director of Beacon Global Strategies. He previously served as the staff director for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired by GOP Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan and perhaps the most important panel investigating Benghazi. Allen´s new business partners at Beacon include: Philippe Reines, a dyed-in-the-wool Clinton hatchet man who worked for Clinton from 2002 until

Contrary to rumors that the Tea Party is in demise, if Republicans gain control of the Senate and retain control of the House after November, the Tea Party versus establishment battle may just be getting started. Statistician Nate Silver gave the GOP a 60% chance of taking back the Senate, and the Los Angeles Times noted that the Tea Party is getting ready for its next phase of promoting policies to lower the debt and mitigate or repeal Obamacare. Grassroots conservatives, having given the GOP its House majority back in 2010, felt snubbed when the establishment tried to blunt their

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
