ATTN Gun Owners: McConnell & Reid Cutting Deal on the Filibuster. When are McConnell and Boehner going to change their affiliation to Democrat? They’re giving away the country and everyone in Congress just stands around looking stupid. Perhaps in Congress Republican is a code word for eunuch.

Democrat establishment: testicles the size of watermelons. Goes well with their chutzpah.

Republican establishment: testicles the size of microbeads. Submitting proposal to Webster’s to reconfigure “gonads” to “gone-nads.”

Seriously? And you guys wonder why I’m done with the republican party. Screw this “we don’t need a third party we need a revitalized second party” crap, we need a party that represents the people and keeps these guys in check.

I’ve been a Libertarian for over twenty years, because Democrats are evil, and Republicans are useless.

Then again, if this doesn’t re-vitalize the T.E.A. Party, nothing will.

Except there is no Libertarian party in most areas, so libertarians end up voting republican by default. I am a moderate. No party represents me either. I have to accept a lot I don’t agree with to vote at all.

I owed M Command ( West Chester? You’re that close? Beer someday? Steak on the barbie?) and Kick my thoughts on the Speaker, had a bad weekend, sleep-wise, didn’t forget. This does make me sit back in my chair and rethink. Not that my thoughts count for anything. My thoughts before were more about the job of Speaker, OK you have the newbies Tea Party people over here (who gave their word by the way not to keep on keeping on), the conservatives over here who don’t have to worry about elections, the RINOs who always waffle. The point I was trying to make was, OK fine, get rid of him, then we have what? Cantor? My thought was his job right now is impossible to advance “our” agenda, but to stop the bleeding, or people like us will get steamrolled in Congress with a fractured party. Imagine that, they’re playing all their cards (the progs) after decades of chipping away, and NOW you’re pissed off at the Speaker of the House? I’m sorry, it’s easy to throw stones, but I don’t play that. YOU tell me what YOU could and would do differently were you Speaker. My other thought… Read more »

Our Republic will cease to exist if we continue to play the two party game. It would be equivalent to saying we need to go along with the British to gain our independence. It’s a casino and we are the fools who keep losing. Both parties only care about power and keeping the system in place. There are a few exceptions, but neither party represent We The People, only themselves. Freedom oriented people are slaves to the republican party, unless we choose a different path. We’re loyal and faithful by nature, but eventually, when we’ve been stabbed in the back enough times, enough has to be enough. If I was speaker? I’d stand up on two feet. I’d realize the media has O’s back but the millions who voted against him have mine. I don’t like the republicans because they don’t have a spine. We need a party with a spine! A party that does not care about winning elections but rather standing on principle and getting the message out. If we don’t have that the Republic is lost. With the dems and the repubs, it’s back and forth nonsense, they both facilitate the loss of our freedoms for their… Read more »

I agree with almost all of it, BUT, my point Joe was what’s going on now, today, the power grab and pissing on the Constitution. Forget about the past and how or why we got here, as hard as that may be, but we’re here, now, today.

Let’s fix our party problems, if the country is still here, another day, my fear is the bastards are winning by splitting us (the opposition) and grabbing everything they’ve always wanted while “we” bitch and moan amongst ourselves, and laughing their asses off while they do it.

You want a third party? fine, so do I, but look how Clinton got elected… thank you Mr. Perot. You want to fracture the only opposition these people have while they’re on the verge of making us a socialists country or worse? They’ve been plotting this for years, and now is not the time to form sects. We’ll hopefully shake it out and fix it later, if it still matters, but for now the pissing match on “our” side does nothing but help THEM win.

I just don’t follow party loyalty anymore. If the republicans stood for anything I’d probably agree, but they don’t, and I’m willing to back them if they did. They play us the fool while going along with the tyranny that is afoot. Our founders pledged their Lives, Fortunes and Sacred Honor for freedom, yet we vote republican and think it makes any difference.

I’m not calling for arms or revolution, just a third party that represents the people, yet that somehow is radical. God forbid if we had a party which stood for something, stood on principle win or lose. How is having a party that stands for something a bad thing? It’s only bad for our two party system.

Look at the Republican primaries. They all cut each others throats and we lost the election. (shut up crowley, Ron Paul was part of the problem and never had a chance. He just liked hearing himself talk. Kind of like yourself.) We need to start grooming future candidates, instead of rerunning losers that no one wants. If we want young people with us, we need someone with brains and more charisma than a sponge. This is the area of electronic media. Candidates eed to play well on TV and on social media sites. Those are the facts, whether we like them or not. We can change, or we can die. Take your pick.

Dont forget we still have WE the people. Gun sales havent skyrocketed in a down economy due to no ones paying attention. The left is falling apart,they are eating thier own and i think it wont be long before they fall apart. When they are done we can use all the extra ammo to go target shooting.

You have a point about the left Jackman, but the problem is what will cause them to fall apart is what is going to hurt everyone, the economy. When the flow of free money to the recipient class stops, it will be because the contributors have nothing left to give. Then we will have civil war/anarchy. The only ones with a chance to survive are the ones with the guns. That’s why the ball-less wonder is trying to take them away. We all know that will never happen, because LE won’t do it, too dangerous for them to piss off the only people that will back them up in an emergency (see Strina’s posts in Tips), and the military won’t do it because they know if we have no weapons, that the Chinese and many other standing armies, would overrun us because of the decimation of the military by the left over the past decades, has made our military one of the smaller ones in manpower. The old line about the Chinese not invading us because there is an American with a gun hiding behind every blade of grass, goes a long way to protecting us, and anyone that tries… Read more »

One of the ball-less wonders that I argue with on FB mentioned the other day that we can’t fight D.C., because they have drones.

I brought up the fact that those drones, and other weapons that we the people don’t have, are all operated by people. Men and women that took an oath. My greatest hope is that many of those people take their oath seriously, and will NOT fire on innocent citizens, but will make their drones take a U-turn and fire on the enemy.

That brings up some good points.

This particular liberal loser also served in the armed forces, although as a paper pusher. So I often bring up his oath, and ask why he won’t honor it. He dances around those question.

They aren’t eating their own as fast as republicans are eating THEIR own. People are buying the bull about the republicans (the war on women, everyone is stupid, everyone is a gun toting maniac, everyone believes the world in only 6000 years old.) They actually believe it because that’s all they hear about. The Republicans do a sorry job of publicizing the reasnable and normal things most Republicans stand for. Learn a little marketing and PR people!

Term Limits, sorry GhostntheMachine, is what we need for now. We the people need to push hard for them. We have too many lawmakers sitting on the hill for so long they think it’s a throne. After 20 years they do acquire too much power. Term limits would weaken the lobbyists ability to develop so much power through individuals.

You folks all make excellent points. Here are my thoughts to add. Sorry about the length…/rant on The democrats are all hopelessly corrupt. We can expect nothing but the forward march toward socialism-dictatorship with the likes of these. These commies are too well disciplined to change. The establishment republicans can be changed, but are not really an opposition group any longer. They are just a kinder and gentler version of big government. They play the game to be perceived as nice guys and so as not to lose their current status. Evidence – McCain would not say Obama’s middle name, or hardly anything else mildly critical of Obama when running against him. But wow, did he have plenty critical to say against a republican primary challenger running against him 2 years later. Romney viscously went after Gingrich & co. in the primaries, but played oh so much softer on Obama. He would not mention Bengazi in a FP debate. Why? I don’t know but I am guessing it was so as not to appear too critical. It certainly did not help his chances. Boehner says virtually nothing about Obama while O and his minions deride the house leadership routinely. All… Read more »

Ah, do you still slip and call them the “Redskins”? Still have an old almost mint Miami Redskins sweatshirt I wear with pride from time to time.

[edit] I was guessing before a couple weeks ago, but it really is, what, 40 minutes, door to door?

[again] just had another thought off the top of my head, down by that funky 3-way intersection w the carry-out on the corner? Am I close?

They are still Redskins to me. But I really don’t follow them so close. I think you know the area roughly where I live. Yes, we are maybe 45 minutes tops apart. One of these days we’ll need to set up a meeting!

Great posts from all but we have pretty much reached the point where we are going to have to force these corrupt bags of crap out of office with pitch forks. They cover for each other, regardless of which party they are in, refuse to establish term limits even though a huge majority of we the people want them to, and pass laws they are immune to.
No surprise what happened to the Greeks, and the Romans, it’s happening right before our eyes.
