Oh yeah, So John McCain picking Sarah Palin as a VP was abandoning conservatives. Mitt Romney picking Paul Ryan was abandoning conservatives… If you think Moderate Republicans fundamentally agree with democrats you need to get your head out of the sand. We cannot possibly operate the government if both sides always fight and bicker.** As conservatives you have to pick the battles that you know you can win, and I think the conservatives have done a pretty good job pushing conservative legislature.
The Democrats control the power at the top, and we know it’s very hard to challenge the senate and the democratic leadership. That’s why Republicans still like to take the battle away from the federal government and to the states. As much as some may hate John Boehner and the leadership in the House, we have been battling Obama and his cronies on this same issue every year for the past five years!!!
If you find yourself hating republicans, it’s because you drank the liberal kool-aid! It’s because you believe the democrats when they say it’s our fault, when it is in fact theirs! They are the ones who refuse to compromise, they are the ones who refuse to make a deal, and they are the extremists!
[/quote]Nonsense. I agree that the Dems are the problem, but the Pubbies contribute almost as much to the situation, as the Dems.
I was a Republican. I have not changed. I still hold the same convictions I had, when I voted against Carter. It is the GOP, that has changed. Why? To try to be “electable”.
I bolded that statement above, because, unlike Republicans, I believe in fighting for a cause, because it is right, not because I think I can win. As long as Republicans like Jazz and Cam exist, I will continue to fight AGAINST the wrongs they condone. I refuse to side with Republicans, just to work against the Dems. I choose my battles by the Right or Wrong, involved.
Your misconceptions abound. McLame picked Sarah, because he knew conservatives would never endorse his Liberal views. Mitt picked Ryan, to try to get the youth, conservatives and women, on his side. He needed youth.
Don’t be so naive as to think your beloved party leaders are some crusading heroes. They are opportunistic politicians, just like the Dems. They preach fiscal responsibility, but DO nothing to promote paying down the debt, or balancing the non existent budget. They’ll lie to you, just like the Dems will.
