    The Party of No

    I see where Mitt Romney and other liberal Republicans who just don't "get it" are afraid that the mass media, or even worse, the Democrats, might view them as obstructing the dominant party's socialist anti-American, anti-freedom agenda.

    Well, why the hell shouldn't real American stand opposed to those policies that have proven to be wrong, expensive, failed, and harmful?

    The Republicans should embrace The Party of No. They should say "NO" most vociferously to:

    Any and every tax increase.

    Any and every unconstitutional spending increase.

    Any and every unconstitutional program.

    Any and every attempt to nationalize health care.

    Any and every attempt to prevent domestic oil drilling.

    Any and all attempts to decriminalize the invasion of the United States by Mexico.

    Any and all attempts to coddling dictators.

    Any and all Liberal and anti-American judicial appointments.

    Any and all unfunded mandates.

    Any and all attempts to apologize to any other nation for anything in our past, since compared to them our history is spotless.

    Any and all attempts to curtail or otherwise infringe on our Constitutional freedoms, including expected new efforts at media censorship from the left, the expected new assualts on gun ownership freedoms, etc.

    And say "no" to practically any the Democrats do, because they're Democrats, and they wouldn't be Democrats if they weren't wrong almost all the time on almost everything under the sun.

    I"m all for the new Party of No.

    So, do you support the liberal Republican's efforts to avoid saying "no"< or do you think the word "no" is a wonderful word that isn't heard often enough in the halls of Congress?

    Saying "Yes" and saying "no" in just measure are the marks of the moral man.

    There is no sin in saying "no".

    Ouch, thats pretty harsh.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: The Party of No

    The problem is that the republicans are being perceived as saying "no" to anything the democrats propose, just because it's a democratic proposal, and not offering up real alternatives. How exactly true this perception is, it's hard to say...it's entirely probable that alot more is happening than is being reported since it is not exciting(or blame it on "liberal media bias" if you choose).

    I forget who it was, but I remember during the stimulus "debate", on republican senator standing up with the bill in hand, talking about the length and how no one had read the whole thing, but they where having to vote on it. That was effective, and the republicans need to do more of that to get away from the "party of no" negative image.

    Re: The Party of No

    I won't judge the republicans for saying no, as it sorely needed in many cases. However, the republicans need to focus on issues that are important. Obama gets so many pointless attacks on him that real criticisms get lost in the noise. Getting up in arms over him bowing to some other leader means that its less likely that people will notice him trying to bring back the assault weapons ban.

    The other issue is that republicans need to offer alternatives. The stimulus bill was pretty terrible, but the republicans didn't offer a better option. Getting the public behind doing nothing is much harder than getting support for a differing approach.

    Why? Nothing they offer is even allowed to be considered and the MSM doesn't cover it so what's the point?
