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.

According to the New York Times, Obama senses the possibility of Syria firing on US planes as they conduct ISIS strikes in Syria. It is likely somebody will shoot at them, and it is likely that who did the shooting will be up for debate. “He made clear the intricacy of the situation, though, as he contemplated the possibility that Mr. Assad might order his forces to fire at American planes entering Syrian airspace. If he dared to do that, Mr. Obama said he would order American forces to wipe out Syria’s air defense system, which he noted would be easier

A GOP lobbyist who has been advising House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) is urging Republicans to pass comprehensive amnesty legislation "pronto" if they gain control of Congress after the midterms. Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against President Barack Obama´s executive amnesty, John Feehery argued that Republicans must not oppose Obama and ram through amnesty if they control Congress. "They should pass immigration reform, pronto," he wrote in Tuesday´s The Hill.

Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday, airing at 7-10 pm ET on Sirius XM Patriot Radio and speaking with Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, Farage said that unless you can “energize and engage, to use an old fashioned term, the blue collar voter, you are not going to beat the Democrats.”

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted. Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible. "I expect their recommendations before the end of summer, and I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay," Obama explained in June, referring to a requested proposal from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Thirty-six seats are up for grabs in the Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested. Of those 36 Senate seats, 15 are currently held by Republicans while 21 are held by Democrats. Clearly, the math is on the Republican side, as is the fact that the incumbent party typically loses seats in mid-term elections. This upcoming November 2014 election is crucial for America and voting for a third party candidate will not achieve the victory. To end the Obama “Rule by Decree” power grab, we have to wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats.

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Cat Stevens - also known as Yusuf Islam - is to perform a series of dates in the US for the first time since 1976. The musician, who converted to Islam in 1977 and put his career on hold, will play six concerts in December. The 66-year-old, who was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, is now known by his original stage name and Yusuf. He is best known for his 1971 recording of Christian hymn Morning Has Broken, a top 10 hit in both the UK and US. Stevens had a number of other hits during

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

Department of Justice is launching a new program today in partnership with the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center that will train "community leaders" like teachers and social workers to monitor their communities for signs of radicalization. (snip) In his announcement of the initiative, Attorney General Eric Holder described the program as a way to "be both innovative and aggressive in countering violent extremism and combating those who would sow intolerance, division, and hate" in the homeland. He labeled it an expansion of existent efforts to "to identify threats before they emerge, to disrupt

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) tsk-tsked conservative media for "coarsening our debate" and vowed to "do my small part" to keep things civil before spontaneously praising President Obama´s recent foreign policy decisions. In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

The United States government is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration´s Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night. [Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.
