Is GOP REFORM more feasible than a New Third Party?

The New Third Party blog post elicited quite a response!

First, Second and Third, It is up to Sarah to create a Third Party. In spite of the fact that I detest the Jeb BUSH dynasty and what it has done to our party for years, I have stated that throughout what I am trying to do ~ expose a problem and ask what is the solution?

As I was laying out the scenario, I felt in my heart it struck a nerve.  There is definitely discontent with the GOP.  Based on the response I received, I soon got the impression that it could never really happen without Sarah Palin.  The ONLY way to do a third party is for Sarah Palin herself to start one.  Here is why.

In just two days, I entertained thoughts from Conservatives and others, and found 100,000 ways in which they would not come together under one umbrella.  Everyone had a different vision of what the party should be.  Some wanted to just rebel against the establishment, others wanted a LEADERLESS party, and some wanted other candidates to lead.  We are TOO individualistic and splintered as voters.   That is our nature!  God bless us for that but being too opinionated can only make things more difficult.

Again, I have to be responsible in what I say. I never said I wanted to start the party, I just said there is enough DISGUST with the BUSHES’ GOP for me to want to start a new third party, and that I was offering reasons for doing so (the JEB Bush access to the GOP machine mainly) but ..

I said I would never venture out and do it alone. It was an option to consider. I like taking action when something is collectively agreed upon, but I NEVER ACT ALONE nor DO I WANT TO! This is simply not up to us. In addition, I said I wasn’t sure about the logistics of expenses entailed. It might be less expensive for Sarah to take on the establishment and run against the MACHINE than it would to start a third party.  I do not know for sure, but it sounds like it would be.

There is no other leader who I would trust holding a baton in a relay race, let alone, leading a Third Party effort.  It entails a lot more than just READ MY LIPS NO MORE BUSHES!! or  I’m sick of the GOP!!  I would get on Board immediately if she said that that is what she wanted to do.  She did say that if the GOP failed, it would be an option.

So, it is not a stretch in anyone’s imagination to think it could be a solution.  But, if Sarah decided to run for President, it would be crazy for her to let people know BEFORE 2014.  That is a long two years from now.  Starting a party would take much longer than that.  NO MATTER what she does, it will be great, but we must understand that without her, this Third Party idea would fail.

Now to the GOP Voters (which is a problem that needs to be addressed as GOP voter reform). They constantly complain about candidates not being exciting enough to vote for, but never stop to think WHY we fall into the same situation over the years and don’t connect the dots very well.  Take for example, people who support Marco Rubio.

I am Cuban-American and sometimes I like Marco Rubio and sometimes he disappoints me greatly, because more than anything I want GOP REFORM and to me, his association with Jeb Bush is the biggest ISSUE I have with him!  There are well-informed voters who I talk to who say they are TEA PARTY, yet support Rubio 2016, and it makes me cringe!!  They say they don’t like BUSH and repeat the mantra “No More Bushes” yet would gladly accept RUBIO as Bush’s Vice President should he be asked. Rubio himself has said he wants to run, but would let Jeb Bush take the lead if he ran. (WhY?) That’s another story for another day!

So, if you want Rubio because you’re TEA PARTY, why would you accept a presidential run by Jeb Bush with Rubio as Vice President?  Is it a disconnect? To me it is. And inconsistencies to me are one of the things I thrive on catching in politicians and now IN VOTER THINKING. I hate it when people SAY they want REFORM, but then don’t take any steps to make it happen, or when I know voters are kidding themselves (for whatever reason, let’s give them the benefit of the doubt always) but then act all surprised when results are different from what they expected.

As Conservatives, that has to change. We have to be bolder, more intellectually honest about our candidates (even questioning the ones we like), and better listeners. It’s not just important to give your opinion, but to listen to others when they speak.  We have to MEAN what we SAY and SAY what we mean.  DO WE or DO WE  NOT want reform?  a third party?  NO BUSHES?  WHAT do we want?   It would be great to have a SUMMIT to discuss the future of the Republican Party and have Sarah Palin and Allen West to speak, then do a townhall with our favorites. NO establishment heads, just US.  WHY NOT?

Are you following me?  I hope so. Whether we have GOP reform or start a new Party to put them in their place, we need to be feisty, yet smart, less tunnel-visioned, yet more resolute; less rigid, yet more decisive.  We need to adapt to the circumstances we are in and yet, keep focused on the task at hand, which is TO REMOVE the ESTABLISHMENT from POWER. Do you agree?

I am providing the survey below just to see how Conservatives react to a JEB BUSH 2016 scenario. Please fill it out if you can, and pass it along to your friends like I did by pressing ASK FRIENDS.  Let’s see how willing people are to really OVERTURN our Establishment. We have to DO better at communication among ourselves.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is considering a run for POTUS? Would YOU support JEB BUSH ~ CANDIDATE ~ for POTUS 2016?

    ” Sounds right~ One directional thinking keeps people chained to a tree~ To analyze all is not to believe all but to draw conclusions based on all; the small truths within all to form one main truth that is the answer to them all~ And this is what I meant by flow like water~ It cant be people who have been living in the innercircle because it is the innercircle that conforms to a preset agenda that does not involve We The People~ Whatever the media offers is what the innercircle wants so I am very careful about any choosing for me by the mainstream and its cohorts~ As example Greta had a panel on discussing who they thought would make great 2016 candidates and not one of them mentioned Palin, West or Cain which tells me these three are the real reformers~ But I would like to add that electronic voting is not good dealing with people in innercircle who will do anything to keep their status~ Moreover, I think in terms of who actually, cares for the people more than their own status and I have only found three after two years of analyzing all~”

      Sarah Palin has never been in a more excellent position as being an outsider looking at that inner circle you are talking about. That is why her favorability has gone up to 59% already (and I predict it will go even higher with time which is on her side). She is not part of the problem, but part of the solution.

      I also think it is wonderfully advantageous for Sarah to not even be considered in the 2016 lists of candidates.

      The important thing for us to remember is to be the best VOTERS we can be. If we get fickle, wishy-washy or even fearful of fighting the establishment, we lose right there. So we must work on being better voters, which includes being more vigilant of OUR OWN representatives locally, not just nationally.

      Herman Cain unfortunately is not a good example of the type of politician we want in Washington. He disappointed me greatly by promoting himself and did not do a great service to his supporters. He certainly does not have the acute political instincts that Sarah Palin does. Other than that, great post!

      Thanks for taking the time to read and reply. I really appreciate it!

      • I really like Sarah as a republican because the party left her not the other way around. She stands for freedom, liberty, common decency and respect. The problem for her is how does she tame the MSM beat them at their own game. Her message is simple enough and gets her point across rather nicely “deathpanels,etc.” but how do supporters community organize w/o proper financing and find a megaphone large enough to send her message. True conservatives have the answers and the common sense to draw from, but lack the strategy to beat the dishonest establishment at their own game. I’ve often thought that humor should be used by comparing our individual rights to own and bear arms to abortion, or comparing a federally funded programs like FEMA or the Red Cross to private donations by pointing out and chuckling at government inefficiencies. Nothing makes the left more crazy than wit and humor. Conservatives must be on offense rather than defense and Sarah is my choice to beat the establishment as a republican. There are some elected officials who would support her and even if they don’t I agree with Anthony, look beyond establishment types and think out of the box by deploying great minds who have taken chances, trust themselves, and can make people think and laugh at the same time. Hire a syndicated cartoonist to illustrate the craziness of where our country is headed. People can relate to cartoons like ‘Dilbert’ because most have had the very same circumstance happen to them.

        Indeed.

      • Isabel Matos

        When the GOP left Sarah, like you said Mike, they left US. The GOP is against us, we-the-people. Notice whenever there is an issue to be discussed, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, even Marco Rubio are M.I.A. She is consistently the ONLY person who speaks on our behalf.

        You get it. Please share this post and your thoughts along with it wherever you interact with other Conservatives. We need to flex our muscles more and not be shy. There is a lot to be done. This is going to be a fight to the finish for the sake of our country.

        God bless you!

  2. FYI: Jeb is an establishment Republican. Somebody like Chris Christie would be more suitable.

    • Gary P Jackson

      Yes, Jeb Bush is an Establishment hack. A “compassionate conservative” [liberal]

      But you must be joking about Chris Christie! That Hamas terrorist coddling pig needs to be run out of politics. He doesn’t belong in the Republican Party at all. He is the worst of the very worst.

      • Despite what you think about the man, he is more appealing to the American society than any one in your party right now. Christie is not afraid to straighten out the Tea Party, but I assure you Jeb is.

      • Gary P Jackson

        You MUST be a liberal-socialist-moron The TEA Party doesn’t need straightening out, the federal government does.

        Chris Christie is a despicable human being who has appointed KNOWN and CONVICTED Hamas terrorists to positions of power within New Jersey’s government. He’s a liberal and a national security threat.

        Jeb Bush is ALSO a liberal.

        Liberalism is NOT compatible with civilized society. Liberalism is a cancer on all of humanity. It’s why America is currently circling the drain.

        Liberals are the enemy of everything that is good.

      • Isabel Matos

        Christie is a phony. He didn’t help our cause. HE IS PART OF THE GOP PROBLEM, not solution.

        Thanks for commenting because this is what we need to address from now on.. who IS and who ISNT part of the solution.

    • Isabel Matos

      Noel, Chris Christie said during Hurricane Sandy that he didn’t care about the election. He showed me something we had not seen before, that he is not graceful under pressure or fire. He gave Obama the opportunity via the photo-op he took with him, to look like a savior. Now he enjoys positive media coverage and is the new darling of the talk shows and SNL. I wish he had kept his mouth shut, let Romney do his thing, but he proved to be a bad team player and a RINO, who is nothing but a liberal in disguise if you ask me. I will never forgive him for his comportment which gave comfort to our opponents and may have cost the election for Romney.

      Jeb Bush is now following in his footsteps trying to take on a popular issue that has won Christie a lot of attention: going after the Teachers’ Unions. What’s next?

      I don’t like Christie. He may as well change his R to a D like so many others we do NOT need in this party. That plus he’s a Tub of Hamas-loving Lard.

    I vote for the new Freedom Party. We the People will create this party, and it will be a party OF the people, BY the people and FOR the people. Our emblem will be the Bald Eagle, the symbol of freedom, and our color on the electoral map will be white, the symbol of purity. No RINO’s allowed!!! But a “Big Tent” mindset will be there for all American voters who feel disowned by their party or who wish to have a party large enough to be noticed and invited to the debates. The main theme will be to make the federal gov’t as irrelevant in our daily lives as possible, and our planks will support that idea. Our Sarahcuda will be our nominee even if we have to draft her because she is the only person with name recognition and executive experience to get the job done!

    • Isabel Matos

      My grandmother always said dreaming doesn’t cost anything! So I dream. I just know, based on what I shared, I learned that it would cost money, too much money. Probably the kind of money we can’t even imagine. Like I wrote, those concerns are beyond my comprehension, so I listen to those who know better than myself.

      I am not sad, though. It would be a greater, sweeter victory if our nominee, Sarah Palin, was able to beat the establishment head on. No fight worth fighting is easy. We have an uphill climb no matter what we do. I hope we keep optimistic that no matter how hard that climb will be, that we will have the fortitude and focus needed to win. We also have God, and each other to rely on.

      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. It is deeply appreciated. I loved your idea. Let’s get behind Sarah no matter what she does.

    In Pa we are working on a plan to elect enough people to state committee so as to elect a new chairman and also overturn the delegate rules from the convention. Forget Marco Rubio he is not a Natural Born Citizen. When contacted by the Article II SuperPAC to come clean he wussed out. He could have made a statement that he could not be VP same as Obama could not be Prez.

    I sent the following email to SarahPac (info@sarahpac.com) .
    I invite everyone to send their own:

    This is a plea for Sarah Palin to write her next book, a book detailing what policies she would enact as president.

    Clearly, the US is headed for disaster. Only an unapologetic Constitutional conservative can avert that disaster.

    Only “sudden and relentless reform” can reverse the descent of the US.

    While there are many downsides to putting her cards face up on the table, I think it must be done.

    Sarah should start now, organizing and composing her political philosophy, and piecing together a coherent plan to rescue the nation.

    Please ask her to do this.

    Thank you.

      I think her next book is going to be on fitness, which is a wonderful idea! We all need to be fit and healthy to fight the long fight we have ahead.

      If you follow Sarah closely, you would know she keeps her cards close to her. Very close. And you would also know how unpredictable she is, which is why she is so effective. It would be incredibly unwise for any of us to think that if we begged her any longer to do things, that she will do what we say. She is her own person. Leaders represent, but do what needs to be done, when things need to be done. She knows she has our support, so we should not sit around and wait to see what she is going to do next. She has already expressed what we can be doing NOW.

      That is to be more locally involved with our candidates, so we can fill the House and Senate with a healthy dose of Conservatives who will help clean things up and restore some fiscal sanity back to Washington! IT IS A MESS!

      Please find out who your representatives are, get to know them, and watch them closely. My concern is GOP voters are TOO trusting of their representatives and forget to check on them after they have been elected. WE are the ones who have to act and sacrifice, not just expect others to do our work for us.

      Thanks for coming by! I really enjoy your input. I would love to hear from you again, especially IF you let me know who your representatives are in your state and district.
