Obama is going to have to seriously **** up within a month or two of the 2012 presidential elections in order for the republicans to win.
    Yes, but you are overlooking the question of why anyone would vote for Barack Obama. Do they feel he has done a good job or because they belong to the same political party?

    Would you mind including that "stated platform" on this thread?

    And I think you're confusing the Democrat Party with the Christian religion. Many Americans believe in a separation between the Church and the State.

    Mostly it will be people voting for him because of party affiliation. Those that do vote for Obama will be because the republican party will most likely prop up a RINO or someone who is damaged goods. Some of the voters might be people who want Obama to be the first black president to get a 2nd term.Some of it might be the idiots who think Obama will pay their bills.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'm of similar sentiment that the Tea Party had promise but it got hijacked by the GOP and its celebrities.

    Republican =/= Libertarian

    At least we know there is some spirit of vigilance against government in this nation, even if it hasn't been properly organized yet. It's a start.

    How can the GOP hijack the GOP?

    Re: Low Registration Sinks Tea Party Convention

    The Tea Party has become too emeshed with the Republican Party. When it started it was grass roots and popular response to the healthcare legislation, bailouts and threatened taxation that would be needed to pay for it all. It's been taken over by splinter groups and mainstream conservative groups, demonized by the media, and become unfocused. The entrenched two party system just wasn't going to allow another group to gain too much power.
