Republican Party Insanity
Canada Free Press, by Jeff Crouere

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 8/23/2014 10:06:11 AM

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein Unbelievably, the drumbeat is beginning for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney to run for President a third time. The man who lost twice for President is now being encouraged by many party leaders to give it another try. Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) recently told MSNBC, “I think he’s proven right on a lot of stuff. I happen to be in the camp that thinks he’s actually going to run and I think he will be the next President of the United States.” Chaffetz is not alone; commentator Ann

Quote "The bottom line is that Romney cannot win. He does not unite the wings of the Republican Party and is not an effective candidate to reach Independent voters."

Pretty much sums it up.

Cue up the tantrum blaming conservatives for Romney losing in 2012. Can the conservatives on this forum who didn´t vote for him in 2012 please identify themselves so that the establishment can blame them specifically rather than blaming us all?

Mittens - - the new Harold Stassen, Adlai Stevenson, Norman Thomas, and William Jennings Bryant.

The men who ran for the sake of running. But they filled a very useful purpose. In every election - - someone has to lose.

Romney is a good man. He is a good husband, father, and grandfather. He is a really good business man. He is a good Mormon.

But he is not a good candidate, a good Republican or a good conservative. I voted for him in 2012, and will vote for him again if he is the candidate in 2016 (though I pray he will not be, because he won´t win again, and the very survival of this nation depends on stopping the Demon-RAT lawless dictatorship at presidency that Øvomit has given us and PIAPS will continue).

The Republicans need a solid conservative that will be willing to fight as dirty as the Demon-RATS require him to. He needs to do whatever it is needed to win, and he cannot fall into the "play nice" trap that the MSM always sets the Republican up to.

I want a Republican that I can be proud and excited to support. I want to vote for the Republican, not just vote against the Demon-RAT, in 2016!!!! With Romney, I would simply be voting against the Demon-RAT again...

I like Mitt-- but I am uncertain if even a truly conservative candidate can win again.

The country has become so dependent on the government, the demographics alone are tilted far to the left, and between the leftist media and the constant coverage of non-scandals of anyone with an R by their name versus looking the other way when a democrat is involved in major or minor scandals-- makes me truly wonder if we will ever see true constitutional sanity restored to the White House and Congress.

However, being the eternal optimist -- maybe, just maybe in 2016 the dems will not steal the election and the Republicans will not throw it away.

What #5 says is incontrovertible and wise. I´m in total agreement. Romney is a good human being but a poor candidate for national office. If the GOP Establishment succeeds in pushing him into the 2016 race, they deserve the electoral extinction coming their way. What´s most unforgivable is that they have no imagination and want to keep treading the same paths until they´re worn slick. As ballplayers are wont to yell from the dugout at a player whose mind isn´t engaged, "Have an idea out there!"

I will always for the Republican candidate. I hate McCain and I voted for him. Why?
The worst R is better than most of the Democrats. I am not happy at all with the GOP right now, but we do not have a decent 3rd party and look at what the Democrats have done to us.

Since WWII:

D Harry Truman, elected once, for his ´second term´.

R Dwight Eisenhower 1953 - 1961
D Kennedy/Johnson 1961 - 1969
R Richard Nixon 1969 - 1974
R Gerald Ford 1974 - 1977
D Jimmy Carter 1977 - 1981
R Ronald Reagan 1981 - 1989
R George H.W. Bush 1989 - 1993
D Bill Clinton 1993- 2001
R George W. Bush 2001 - 2009
D BHO 2009 - (2017)

Notice the pattern?

Only Reagan got the so-called "third term"

For every eight year presidency, it changes party. For Seventy years!

If the republicans do not win the presidency in 2016, IMHO, this will prove there are no legitimate elections.

Ask yourself why so many are now gravitating to Romney, and you´ll realize who is the natural leader of the party. I´m for giving America a second chance to get it right, so Mitt is my choice for 2016. Events have validated his leadership, and proven his competency. It may not be evident here, but the nation is finally waking up to his qualities.

I too agree with article and #5. What we are seeing with the polls, the leaks and headlines about Romney is very simple. The establishment is very scared right now. We saw it at the Texas Republican Convention a few months ago. The trial balloons of touting Rubio was a disaster. He crashed and burned. Then there was Jeb and his ridiculous quotes about the noble illegal alien and his total belief in Common Core. The conservatives have spoken loud and clear about these two men. So -- it´s back to Romney. They are pushing this hard. They see we have some true conservatives in the wings and it scares them to death.

The vast majority of us conservatives did not stay home. A few LDotters said they did and I fully understand why, but most of us didnt.
The establishment LDotters told us to vote for Romney and then change the party from the inside. We voted for Romney, and you see what has happened to those who try to change the party.
The painful truth is, Romney lost to the worst president in my lifetime. He lost to a man who´s communist and moslem ties are undeniable. He lost to a man who can´t even prove he´s American or where he went to school. Romney lost to the very man who hates the country that took him in.
Why would it be any different this time?
I know 2012 was Romney´s turn. 1960 was Nixon´s turn also. Sometimes things dont work out as planned by the party bosses.
I´m still in favor of a 3rd party. All freedom loving Americans welcome. Previous political officeholders need not apply for leadership positions.

He´s malleable, and frankly I don´t like his, "Aren´t I a nice boy," persona.

A third go round for Romney? I think not. The party system is washed up, and it is time for its decent burial. I favor Dr.Carson´s idea to abolish labels and candidates get to run on their own merits. We could eliminate the sheep-like thinking of party line voting. In fact it is past time for a total reform of congressional process,elimination of arcane procedural rules and the practice of awarding committee leadership positions to the so- called next in line. We need new blood not chosen for us by the media or the beltway establishment.America deserves better representation and less fraudulence.

Islam: The Awful Truth

Islam is violent and repressive, and its sacred texts are the heart of darkness at the center of the Islamic State´s inspiration and motivation, despite Barack Obama´s assertions in September 10th´s address to the nation that the Islamic State "is not Islamic" and that "no religion condones the killing of innocents." Violence is an integral part of Islamic doctrine, following the example set by its Prophet Mohammed, and in the name of Islam and Allah, Muslims have been murdering innocents, since 656 AD. Six hundred years after Mohammed, one of Islam´s most respected scholars, Ibn Khuldan wrote ´Muqaddimah´

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

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."

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

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?
