An Open Letter to the Political Right
Townhall, by Derek Hunter

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/3/2014 8:08:02 AM

Dear “Conservatives” and “Establishment Republicans,” I write today in the hope you all can get over whatever anger, distrust or bruised egos this primary season and political year has caused you. We on the right need to unite and send a message to progressives by unambiguously retaking the U.S. Senate in November. We all have some problem with what’s happened so far. Someone we liked lost a primary. Someone we didn’t won. Some piece of legislation we hate passed; some other piece we liked did not. No one is completely happy, but we all know things can get much worse – and

Summary of the article, conservatives "get over it" and vote for the "establishment".
I will not forget Mississippi!

Sorry about that. What I meant to say is that this article is so yesterday. There is no reconciling what cannot in all honesty and devotion to the truth be reconciled.

It´s over for the GOP. Let us hope a phoenix rises from the ashes.

Just vote for the most conservative person in the race. Might not be your first, second or third choice but this country will not survive if the progressives have two more years of control. This is no time to take your toys and go home.

I say this a staunch tea party supporter who had backed my conservative convictions with every dime I could spare from the very first rally to this very moment.

Oh My! Can´t we all just get along?

What doesn´t seem to be understood -- or is it just simply ignored. All the branches of government are filled with progressive/parasite/crooks (on both sides of the isle), and we cannot survive as a nation until they are removed.

FTA; Were John McCain or Mitt Romney the “next Reagan?” Absolutely not! But, even with their imperfections being considered, they’re both Godfather 2 compared to the Sharknado 2 currently occupying the White House.

Of course they were better alternatives than the reprehensible Obama, but they lost! This destroyed his entire premise. I will never sit out an election! Buy should be focusing his ire on the establishment wing of the party. They are the ones who do not bend!

Must Read.

It seems it is always the Republicans turn to hold their nose when voting.

That said, despite my abject hatred for the RINOs, we cannot stay home in protest this year. I shudder at the thought of 2 more years with the Dems in charge of the Senate. Given their propensity for voter fraud, it is essential for every possible voter to get to the polls this November if we have any hope of saving our country.

Despite 6 years of scandals and disasters, there is no Republican plan to stop them. We need to control the Senate while waiting for a viable candidate to arise in 2016. Please vote in November. Wear a clothes pin on your nose if you want to make a point, but vote.

And yes, I will not forget Mississippi. Apply that to 2016.

Speed Master, you have hit the burr under my saddle, Mississippi. If Reince Priebus wants to get any semblance of unity in the Republican Party, he needs to condemn and not just regret the tactics used there. He also needs to call out the Barbour´s for their use of them. That would be a start.

In Texas, the Establishment got their head handed to them by the Tea Party in the Four main statewide races below Governor. Abbott was the only candidate for Governor so that race was not an issue. There is no effort by the Establishment to help those four, instead they communicate to the grass roots to help Abbott who has $38 Million on hand and an inept opponent.

Until Reince condemns Mississippi, don´t come knocking for my help. I will be working for four candidates in Texas, Patrick, Paxton Miller and Hagar.

It seems to me like those who are threatening to not vote are people who are disgusted with the SYSTEM which allows cronyism and corruption. Logically, then, wouldn´t it be best to proactively work to try to CHANGE the SYSTEM, rather than *punish* the entire Party by withholding your vote?
Have you joined or formed a group which actively is involved in educating others about your concerns? Have you donated time or money to help get your message out? Have you repeatedly communicated your worries to your elected representatives and made every possible attempt to explain your position---or have you just sat back, folded your arms, stomped your feet and cried, "Enough is enough!" That is punishing your allies, when your real gripe is with the war!
Have you considered that change is also possible from WITHIN? There are other effective ways to get your message out: you could vote for a Republican who may not have behaved or voted exactly as you would like---but then make a commitment to CONVINCE him, once elected, to change his or her views and adopt yours? Have you sincerely ever TRIED this? Protest outside his office, swamp his switchboard, let him know you are watching. Have you done this?
And finally, is it possible that the left wing radicals are using you as a tool, by stirring up your resentment to keep the Senate? Why wouldn´t they?
There are plenty of other ways to handle your frustration. Think about it, please, for the sake of this beloved country.

The Republicans irk me but the Democrats enrage me. I´m a Libertarian and even though there will probably be Libertarian candidates on the ballot I´m voting against the Democrats not for somebody. That means I´m voting for the non Democrat who can beat the Democrat. That will most likely be a Republican. It might irk me to vote for him but so be it. And Bill Maher might say or even actually be a Libertarian but he is not a libertarian. There might be big government i.e. socialist Republicans (way too many actually) but there is no such thing as a socialist libertarian. The phrase is oxymoronic.

We can all get out and vote for whoever has an R by their name BUT.. why... We will only get the old goat Mitch McConnell who promised not to punish the Dems for all the years of treasonous actions. I feel the conservatives are between the devil and the deep blue sea. The establishment could care less about stopping the Libs..All they want is their office and the perks they have become accustomed to. The problem with McConnell..is it will be another 6 years of putting up with the old RINO before we get another shot at "deposing" him.
That is where the frustration starts... we heard the same arguments 2 years 4 years, 6 years ago. Nothing changes. The establishment Repubs just gets more vocal condemning the Tea Party..

I agree entirely with its sentiment. We have got to put aside our one-item differences to stop currently unrestrained lawlessness in its tracks. Our inability to do so in 2008 and especially in 2012 put us in the the position we´re in now. Yes yes there were many other issues starting months earlier, but on election days themselves, this one issue was America´s undoing.

It´s time to pick a side. Not picking again.....picks obama´s.

Well, I understand the article…but, here in Mississippi that means voting for Thad…thereby validating what he and his group did to steal the election. So where do we draw the line? Vote for more of the same of what’s wrong? Or let the Democrats have the election so they can continue doing more of the same of what’s wrong?

I just don’t know at this point.

I will vote for who I damn well choose. If I decide not to vote in a particular race, that is my choice. If the Republicans are unable to find and run candidates that appeal to those who have always supported the Republicans; that is a reflection on the Party and not on me.

The problem with conservatives is they have standards, and they are not willing to bend no matter what. This is not good for conservativism nor for the country in general. One issue voters come to mind. It is good to stand for something, but if you lose everything for your stand, you are impotent.

The dems stay united no matter what, no matter their stance on any one issue. Their only goal is to maintain power and run our lives.

So here we are, still divided, and there they are, still united.

You know what they say, "United we stand, divided we fall". We are falling, and they are taking over and destroying our country.

In four years holding the House, what hs the Republican majority accomplished or stopped? Boehner apparently fails to recognize the chamber´s power of the purse to bargain. His major (and legacy landmark) accomplishment will be to sneak by some Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill as the best, bi-partisan compromise solution to our southern border issues...sticking the US with millions of rag tag "takers" to blend with the millions we already have that are unable/unwilling to work. Never trust a career politician, whether R or D, not that it matters much these days.

I am still positive the win of ´the won´ was by fraud and not Conservatives who stayed at home. The flipping of voter machines which were not caught like on the East coast swing states where over 7,000 complaints were called in for mishaps of the machines, the per cent of all DEMs in Counties, not just a precienct which were well over registered voters and even total population of a county which included children under 18, probably even included number of cats and dogs. oting results at 150 % over total population as occurred in Colorado should be noted.
A newspaper selected onlyu 10 counties to check in Colorado and found all had over 100% voting.

I get so damn tired of listening to those that tell us we must vote for the R even though he/she isn´t a conservative or that he/she is the lesser of two evils. I´ve been listening to this BS for the last 30 years and what has it gotten us, a bunch of RHINOs who think and act like the dems/libs. By voting for the R just so we can control the Senate (or whatever body or position is involved) just means we are still falling into more government and socialism, just slower than if we let the dems win. Until the GOPe shows me that they can lead and stand up for the Constitution and conservative principles, they don´t deserve my vote or support. AND, when the GOPe pulls the BS it did in Mississippi, they show they are no better than Dems.

Lots of great posts on this thread. Thanx for reinforcing that I am not the lone ranger.
I have lost a lot of freedom under dem/comm rule. I have also lost a lot under republican rule. The only real difference is that the dem/comms are better at stealing it.
Why should I vote for a party who´s track record indicates that they will steal even more of my money and my freedom? Because they promise to steal less than the dems would? Gee thanks guys. Makes me really want to pull that lever.
It is past time for a real conservative party to emerge. The Republican party is beyond repair.

I´m with #17, but I sympathize with #21 in Mississippi - particularly bad situation there. I would recommend donating even a small amount to someone good running in another state, such as Joni Ernst, and maybe do a write-in where you are.

Perhaps all those who are determined to sacrifice their votes could help by donating to key races like Joni´s where you could make a difference.

In Mississippi it is time for the establishment Repubs to unify with Conservatives not the other way around.
Here is how to do it.

1. Thad Codhran should denounce the tactics and withdraw from the race. It is the moral thing to do.

2 Cochran should throw his support to McDaniel as the Repub nominee.

3. Cochran should call on the MS GOP , the RNC , the MS Attorney General, the MS Secretary of State, and the U.S. Attorney to conduct a complete investigation of the vote for criminal violations.

Then we can have party unity.

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Last weekend, Texas Governor Rick Perry defended his support for a 2001 bill that granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants for Texas colleges and universities. As reported by Breitbart Texas, in a keynote conversation at The Texas Tribune Festival, Perry was asked directly by Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith if he now believed the bill should be overturned, and Perry answered "No," also commenting, "I still think in 2001 it was the right thing to do in the state of Texas." After Perry´s remarks hit the news, public reaction was swift. Breitbart Texas´ article on

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

AUSTIN, Texas -- At an event today at the University of Texas Austin campus, Texas Governor Rick Perry reaffirmed his support of allowing illegal immigrant students to pay in-state tuition at Texas colleges and universities, while U.S. citizens from other states continue to pay higher out-of-state tuition rates. Perry made his remarks in a "One-on-One Conversation" with Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual event organized by the online media outlet. Breitbart Texas made several queries to Governor Perry´s press office for comment, but as of press time,

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
