THIRD PARTY? Sarah Palin warns GOP: If you abandon us, we’ll abandon you…

Today Sarah Palin sent a warning shot over the bow of the GOP, suggesting that if they continue to back away from the principles in our party, people are going to form a new party and she might be among them (h/t: Daily Caller):

I love the name of that party — the ‘Freedom Party’. And if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan, then yeah, more and more of us are going to start saying, ‘You know, what’s wrong with being independent,’ kind of with that libertarian streak that much of us have. In other words, we want government to back off and not infringe upon our rights. I think there will be a lot of us who start saying ‘GOP, if you abandon us, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in a one or the other private majority parties that rule in our nation, either a Democrat or a Republican.’ Remember these are private parties, and you know, no one forces us to be enlisted in either party.

Sarah Palin is not the first to warn the GOP of a possible third party. Just the other day Mark Levin gave the Republican leadership a similar warning:



And I want to warn the Republican Leadership about something. If I and millions of us decide to leave you; if I and millions of us – the conservative base, the constitutionalists, that taxpayers, the people who make this country work – if we decide to leave you, you’re finished. You’re kaput. You’ll never be in the majority again.

And God knows you’re provoking us.

If this doesn’t open the eyes of the Republicans to what they are doing, then I fear a third party is exactly what will happen. And that would guarantee the Democrats would win everything over the next few election cycles. Nobody wants that. But we may have no choice.

Sarah is an American hero.  We need another party as suggested, but that takes a lot of work and most likely much time in court to get the right, that we are supposed to have, to compete in this “two party” system that has been established.  You will not believe how difficult the conspiracy of these two parties has made it for there to ever be a bonifide challenger to their rule.

This is an interesting article, applepie101.  Thanks for posting it here. Marine Le Pen is clearly a powerful rallying point for the French.  I wouldn’t compare her to St. Joan of Arc but maybe more to Margaret Thatcher.  I do remember hearing about her dad but mostly what was said in the lamestream media here and it wasn’t much else. I don’t think we should compare her Front National to our TEA Party Movement because I think the TEA Party Movement would be mostly comprise of Americans who are more socially conservative as well as for smaller government.  The Front National sounds more “liberterian” in its views and seems to be a lot more socially liberal. In any event, if the French can find the courage to throw off the shackles of socialist ideology and insanity, there is hope for the British too, and us as well in the face… Read more »

I’m glad to see that Gov. Palin warranted double the posts than the homosexual agenda.  Let’s quit worrying about what someone else is doing that has no direct affect on us.  Although Gov. Palin does not advocate gay marriage she does have a love thy neighbor attitude.  We should be so lucky to have her as an example of how to treat one another as Christ did.

wodiej You didn’t watch the video about what the homosexual agenda is doing and therefore you are still ignorant to how their political agenda DOES affect ALL of us negatively.  The agenda is completely separate from the practice and it isn’t at all about tolerance or peaceful.  Glad to stay out of their backyard, as you put it, if they get the heck out of ours!

I see your point, and certainly agree about Sarah. 
But it’s even more than those that want to move past ‘civil unions’ with all the legal rights of marriage, and claim for themselves the Sacrament of Marriage by perverting it’s true meaning.
(Note the hypocrisy in how we are hammered by government to not offend the Islamic faith in any minor way – while they allow rape of what is sacred to Christians and Jews.)
There is more to their organizations’ agenda than what gets shouted in the LSM everyday. They’re another arm of our enemy against our liberty.

Wow, Scoop!  Over 550 comments on this topic screams that the American people are fed up!  I pray that means they are waking up and shaking off their apathy.  I have not read each and every comment, so forgive me if I am repeating something that someone else thought of earlier.  We are Constitutional Conservatives and grass roots.  I am pointing this out because I see that many have trepidation about jumping into this, but I want to point out a thought that might make us leaner, meaner, and more powerful than both parties.  The main two parties spend millions and waste it on bonuses for “advisers/spin doctors”, that get those bonuses regardless of whether or not they win or loose.  That campaign money is our contributions that we gave believing that the GOP would fight for us and they took the money and ran instead.  Let’s learn from that,… Read more »

This strikes me as impotent posturing: “If you abandon us, we’ll abandon you”
There is no “If”, the Republican party has been poking us in the chest for years. Telling us to ‘shut up and vote’ has been the norm. There is no “If”…
If we will do this, NOW IS THE TIME, it’s NOW OR NEVER. If we don’t go now, after all the things we’ve seen and heard for the last ten years…we’re never going to.
We need to get conservatives to run in liberal Republican districts for 2014.

MichaelBowler It’s only impotent posturing from the RINO point of view, because they don’t think we mean it, and they do think they can get elected without us.  We know our mindset, we know we refuse to take their crap anymore. A huge percentage of us decided it was our duty to try ONE LAST TIME, to drag a RINO over the line in order to fend off barack’s re-election.
But even before we did our duty and pressed the lever for Romney (really for the Republican party), a huge number of us pledged we would NEVER do it again.  Never.  We meant it.  Next RINO nominee will lose in a landslide, because we won’t vote for him under any circumstance.  We’re already over the cliff, so another Prog Republican is of zero interest at this time.

It is precisely because we did go and vote for Romney and we haven’t yet done anything but complain, the Republicans are sure we’ll knuckle under and do it again. The time is NOW to field challengers in time for the 2014 elections. We haven’t the money to mount expensive campaigns, this is a grass roots thing that must be done with activism and shoe leather. The sooner we start the more likely we are to avoid getting drubbed…thus losing our power.

Basically conservative voters will not make the transition to voting third party unless they see the effort has a chance of success. There are a lot of people still invested in the “I have to hold my nose and vote for the RINO to thwart the Democrat.” These people are going to require a lot of convincing, without the we lose.

MichaelBowler K-Bob I think you are missing my point. We ARE doing something about it.  Big time.  It isn’t being felt or reported by the media, but things are happening.  Don’t forget, 2012 had some key Primaries where Prog Republicans were removed from office by Tea Party challengers. That was no accident, and was not a one-time deal.  That was the start of something major, and the introduction of Ted Cruz to the Senate.  The House is getting a major earful over this stupid push for “immigration reform” and now the big guns are finally using the “third party” and “usurper” language that has been missing at the top levels. So to say it’s time to start is to be behind the curve already.  It started, and it’s growing. It’s time for folks to join it. Just think about the HUGE number of folks who voted (R) one last time in… Read more »

I have been saying since I first saw Republican establishment types denigrating the Tea Party with Democrat lite fervor that the GOP should remember that when the Whigs became irrelevant to their base, their base went to the new Republican party, and now as the Republican party becomes irrelevant to it’s base, we conservative constitutionalist liberty loving voters, your base, will find a new home where we are respected as citizens, and not subjects. I have been advocating that the Tea Party become a real political party in every state and do away with the Republicans. They want to play ball with the Democrats, let hem BECOME Democrats. I just hope in their dim futures that they make the Democrats wear condoms.

Average post, 150, maybe 200.  Sarah Palin post, 500 and counting.  What does that tell you? What it tells me, is that this country is lost in a dark sea, and we have no idea what to do next.  Curiously, we don’t look to our elected leaders for some salvation from this madness.  Maybe because they created the madness in the first place. There is a very small group of people who we count on, to give us sanity in all of this.  Mark Levin, Rush, Michelle Malkin. Voices in the wilderness.  But it is the wilderness we live in right now. And then there’s Sarah.   And the very mention of her name, simply changes everything. Call me crazy, but I have thought about this for some time.  I thought to myself, given the current circumstances, what would God do, if He  didn’t like what He saw.  If He didn’t… Read more »

All we have to do is stand up for our beliefs and vote our hearts.  Stop listening to the politicians and pundits that tell us we need to go this way or go that way. They have only their own personal interests at heart and could care less what is best for the average American citizen – a citizen, by the way, who has the power of the ballet box if we only came out in the numbers that we should come out in.

The conservative movement has not planned an exit. To exit the GOP, study how the GOP was formed.
1. Firstly dont expect the presidency immediately
2. Be hold to prepared only a handful of senatorial seat and some more congressional seats
3. get a hold of some states
4.Then launch from there.
5. Begin by unseating GOPers who are vulnerable
6. Accumulate the seats

With much luck, maybe one two term presidential cycle 
Good thing is the GOP would have to kiss their powers good bye, never will they be heads of committees or so.
Then begin to coalesce with friendly  members of congress and form a majority.
Then you may gun for the presidency.
Above all, be prepared to pay the price.Knowing it wont be easy. 
Get ready for what the LSM will say after the first round of losses.

Sarah and Mark, the Big Whigs of the GOP long ago abandoned the conservative principles of Ronald Reagan, even while he was still in office, and with abandoning those principles they also abandoned those of us who hold to those principles still and they’ve done it intentionally to drive us out.  Some people may not want to see the conservative base leave but there really is no choice. Stop the threats to take action, Sarah and Mark, and actually take action.  Convene a summit meeting of TEA Partyers and Pro-Life Social Conservatives and those of us who support a strong US military in a dangerous world – call it A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION – if you will – for the express purpose of putting forth a field of candidates who will take on both the Marxist Democrats and Big Whig Republicans in this Big Governement One Party gangster system with two competing wings and BEAT THEM in the voting booth.  Either… Read more »

Below is the paraphrased introduction of the Declaration of Independence. Striking, how aptly it fits our current situation: ‘When a group of people finds it necessary to break former political ties, and become independent, it’s their natural and God-given right. However, it’s only fair that they explain to the world why they’re doing so. First of all, this goes without saying: – All people are created equal, – Their Creator gives them rights which can’t be taken away from them — Life, Liberty and the right to search for happiness, to name just a few. – Governments exist for the sole purpose of protecting these rights. – Whatever legitimate authority a government has, is allowed by the people it governs. – If a government tries to deprive people of their rights, the people have the right to change or abolish it. – They may then replace it with another that… Read more »

Honestly, if we continue to allow those currently leading the GOP to ‘lead’ us, the Democraps will win anyway. At least with a third party we’d eventually win. Assuming, of course, that the Democraps don’t take us to complete tyranny… which I see as a very real possibility.

I wish folks would use the word “Liberty” in place of, or in precedence to “freedom.”  In Britain they have “freedom,” with no guarantees. Look what it’s done to them.  They can shut you down for criticising the government.

K-Bob

bfunkK-BobYep.  In fact ABiC and her associates did a smooth move by labeling the Constitutional Freedom Party with those particular words.
We know we don’t really have “enshrined” Liberty without the US Constitution.  It’s definitely a God-given right to have Liberty, but the Constitution is our guarantor here on Earth.  In other words, ‘freedom’ is something that is given to you by someone in power.  ‘Liberty’ is something you already have, just by being born.  But without the Constitution, we end up having to fight, physically, to maintain our Liberty.

Well, currently the Constitution itself is not “free.”  It has been bound in chains by the statists and oligarchs, and it no longer serves as Guarantor.  We need to set the Constitution free once more, to fulfill it’s critical role for mankind.
That’s why the name “Constitutional Freedom Party” is better than “The Freedom Party.”

Whether the name is Liberty or Freedom, I think our symbol should be the soaring Bald Eagle and our party’s foundational principles should be well stated as encompassing our nation’s founding documents – The Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution – with the vision of Ronald Reagan for the certain purpose of limiting the government by abolishing the IRS and the alphabet soup of agencies and czars and commissars who answer to no one along with their endless regulations and also for putting an end under the existing parameters of the US Constitution to judicial tyranny by placing their fiats under Congressional review and eliminating aberrant courts, such as the Ninth Circus.

I really like your emblem and I got to thinking while you have the Bald Eagle soaring above the Declaration of Independence against the backdrop of the US flag the Bald Eagle should be also soaring under the phrase “One Nation Under God.” with that phrase in the blue field of stars, say following the curve of the circle.  What do you think?

Once again, today the Democrats are socialists and the Republicans are liberals.  There are no conservatives these days.  There are virtually no politicians advocating limited government and more self-responnsibility and reliance.  WIth the break-down of the family, govt. is there to step in and act as “daddy”.
We are entering the age of all government, all the time.  God help us.

There are two parties-Dems and Dems lite. The “big tent” is nothing but a port-a-potty. My nose is sore from holding it every time I vote. I wish the Libertarians would run someone known outside their immediate family. Don’t see anything changing- just call me an optimist.

I agree that the GOP is out of touch with Constitutionalists. However; America is a country of laws, and LEGAL immigration is a part of that. The fact that the GOP and DEMS have allowed the law to be ignored for all these years, and those seeking a better life have come illegally to America is not a big surprise. I don’t like the immigration bill as it is written, however; I am not so stupid as to believe that we don’t need reform, and a way to address those here illegally with compassion. I am for amnesty, with the caveat that all those over 18 and given amnesty are not allowed to vote.. ever (as the penalty), and those under 18 can vote as they turn 18! That will take all the political incentives away from politicians and allow good policy to prevail. Obviously those that are felons, belong to… Read more »

Problem:common sense and compassion have No place in current law. It is for political power alone. Both sides want to buy a million new voters. Your common sense and reason have No place here. So, how do we respond and how are we to heard in this ugly reality?

I keep hearing this false choice that a moderate is better than an extremist like Obama and I have said so myself. But I went along for the last 8 years and we Still lost and got the extremist.
So, how long do we keep voting moderates in? 8 years? 12? Will it encourage the GOP to become more conservative if we vote for the moderate? What sense does that make?

Yes, we originalists have been wooed again and again by Republicans who use lies and deceit to get our vote.  Then, we have been ignored and abused and mocked when these same Republicans get elected.
We are hardworking Americans who cherish and guard our freedoms, yet we are taxed to the breaking point without representation to support policies to which we are opposed, even offended.
Yup.  I’d say a third party is a good bet indeed, and I never thought I’d say that.  But I’m done.
The definition of insanity is when you do the same thing over and over again but expect a different result.  The Tea Partiers and liberty lovers are the only sane people left in this country, so I assure you we won’t be doing the same thing over and over again.

Sarah Palin is the Bobby Thompson of Politics, she knows how to send a” shot heard around the world” as it were. Yesterday she gives a short interview and it lights up the blogs for huge discussions they were on fire, huge comment response, no one else can do that. When Sarah gives speechs her pull quotes end up all the blogsphere, amazing.

Today, the Dems are socialist “do-gooders” who disparage business and enterprise and profit and self-reliance.  And the Repubs are today’s liberals.  There is not true, conserative (major) politician or party.  Thus we drift further and further left, into a morass of a suffocating federal government, perpetual high unemployment, record numbers of people on some form of welfare/subsidy (including near permanent unemployment checks), a weakened feminized, homosexualized society, including a homosexualized armed forces, unable/unwilling to win and finish wars. We even lak the courage to enforce our own borders and immigration laws.  One reason why is that we are afraid to differentiate between “us” and “them”.  We hold the liberal view that everyone is the same and there are no enemies.  There are only those who we have not provided sufficient funding.  We are stuck in a left-wing academic amber, the way an insect gets stuck.  I have little hope we’ll… Read more »

The way I see it: open revolt, total collapse, conservative renewal of the GOP, or abandonment of that party.What will it take to get America back to her roots and common sense?

Forming a new party doesn’t guarantee the Dems winning anything. The sooner a new party forms (with some former members of the GOP and Dems coming over who actually care more about the country than themselves) the better off we’ll be even quicker.
