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

Comments:
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.

I do not have an R stamped on my butt sir, and please save your scolding for your children or those who willing submit to others ruling over them.

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.

Reasons for Political Hope
FrontPage Magazine, by Bruce Thornton    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 10/3/2014 8:45:16 AM     Post Reply
Many Republicans are excited about the midterm elections. They see a good chance of taking over the Senate, which means they can neutralize Obama’s last few years in office. Many also are hopeful about the presidential election in 2016, though Hillary Clinton will enter that race with decided advantages. Regaining the presidency, some believe, will lead to a reprise of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, in which the country was turned from its leftward drift under Jimmy Carter. Yet even if this scenario unfolds as the Republicans hope, it is doubtful the deeper structural problems of the country will be solved. The entitlement

It doesn’t take a genius to know there’s a huge philosophical divergence between the socialist democratic party and the constitutionalist GOP (note the word ‘constitutionalist’). The tightly unified party of progressive socialists believe that massive, oppressive government is authorized to have a boot at every citizen’s throat, while Republicans are supposed to believe in the constitution and a limited government that adheres to the rule of law. But the GOP is no longer unified nor does it stand for adhering to the U.S. Constitution. Swept up by a ‘kinder, gentler’ political correctness, the GOP’s ideology has waffled on the role of

Tom DeLay Found Not Guilty by

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.

Okay, hold the chuckles, snickers and laughs at bay for a moment while I briefly explain my thinking at that time.

Nolen faces one count of first degree murder, one count of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, and a final count of assault with a deadly weapon. At a press conference this morning, Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn said that the gruesome attack was race-related and not a religious act, but he did admit that Nolen was infatuated with beheadings, which was evident from his facebook page.

A flurry of new polls including in Iowa, North Carolina and Louisiana are good news for the GOP and some serious odds makers now view them favorably in terms of their taking over control of the U.S. Senate in November. In Iowa, Republican Joni Ernst is up 44 percent to 38 percent over Democrat Bruce Braley, a seat Democrats thought they´d win early. In a "race that was once viewed as close to a sure thing for Braley and the Democrats.

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."

Bush political guru and current Republican Super PAC king Karl Rove took to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to exhort that paper’s readers to make it rain to the benefit of Republican senatorial candidates with just six weeks left before Election Day. “…[R]educing the Democratic cash advantage will tip the needle in the GOP´s direction,” Rove said. “That will only happen if Republicans open their wallets to candidates whom they may have never met, and, if they live in a battleground state, they clear their calendars to volunteer to identify and get

AUSTIN, Texas -- Over the weekend, Texas´ two senators traded barbs over the last year´s government shutdown in a pair of speeches delivered at The Texas Tribune Festival, a conference at the University of Texas at Austin organized by the online media outlet. Senator John Cornyn delivered a keynote address on Saturday morning and Senator Ted Cruz followed later that afternoon. Both made remarks placing blame for partisan gridlock on Democratic leadership of the Senate, but it is their comments on the shutdown that are generating the buzz.

John Koskinen has failed the IRS and the American people. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testified last week about the missing emails lost forever due to computer failures. When questioned about any more crashes or computer issues recently, Koskinen told the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee that “Hard drive crashes continue as we speak.” Can someone please buy the IRS reliable computers and a backup system? Don’t forget, the IRS canceled the back-up contract service that they had for six years, shortly after Lois Lerner’s original hard drive went missing.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

Mitt Romney and 2016:

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Top White House officials on Friday worked to reassure the American public that the national response to Ebola is under control. Leaders of the country’s health, defense and military branches stressed that they are taking the right steps to contain the spread of the deadly virus, which was first diagnosed in the U.S. on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the ex-CNN talk show host wrote his first story as editor-at-large for the Daily Mail. While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his
