    Re: I want Palin on the 2012 Republican Ticket!

    Hopeful candidates, though?

    I don't want to see anymore Republicans and Democrats in any of hte branches of government - they've dominated our country for 100 years. Are we better off? Are things stellar? Are we avoiding turmoil and troubles?

    I want to give another party the chance to lead - I don't really care if people think "it's a wasted vote" - I'm very tired of the century-old lame tee-tee-totter crap that goes on in politics. I'm VERY tired of it and many other people are thinking the way I am about it.

    The way things are going with the Tea Party, its going to take them too long to establish themselves as powerful as the Dems and Reps. In the meantime, its going to be splitting the GOP's vote, and prevent them from having a majority in either house of Congress (if we stipulate the Tea Party becomes a third party), and until the Tea Party either replaces or overpowers the GOP, our government will be completely hung. If the conservatives don't get their act together fast enough, the power is going to go back to the Democrats, and they'll hold it for sometiem until the cons do have everything figured out.

    First off, it would appear that they need to disengage themselves from the R grasp. Then, they need a national HQ - and build from there.

    True...there may be those running the party that would love to see her shrivel up and disappear, but there is no one in the GOP today that is more popular among Republicans than Sarah Palin.
    And you base that on what? Maybe conservatives like her, but any conservatives I know are not running the party, and none of us want to see her on the ticket. She's definitely popular, but she is not a viable candidate.

    The tea party certainly didn't hurt the GOP in the midterms.

    Do we seriously want them to form a third party though? The way I see it, they're going to establish themselves as the conservative side of Republicans, and the rest of the Republicans get split up between GOP and Tea Party...I think if the Tea Party catered to a more moderate voter base, things would be better; a new independent party so to speak.

    If they stay as part of the GOP. If they split into a third party, which is bound to happen from voter frustration and anger against the government. We'll know if they're going to become a third party in 6 years for sure. By then, the Tea Party will either die off or become immensely powerful.

    Agree. She has definitely become a better speaker and "interviewee" than when she first came into the public eye, but she is not going to be the candidate for anything. Good organizer and energizer. Waaay too polarizing to be on a ballot.

    From when it first appeared, I sort of viewed this thread as a "Troll Poll". Pretty much all the Left votes for Palin and drops in an insult. All on the Right agree she would be a bad idea. Go figure....

    Re: I want Palin on the 2012 Republican Ticket!

    Let me just clarify a few things about Palin. CNN did some kind of polling on election night in Kentucky, South Carolina, Texas, Mississippi, Iowa, and Ohio all of which are key Republican states (Ohio specifically now) and with polling in every single state Palin came out in top. She is seen by many as the anti-establishment candidate and in general right now, most Republicans hate their own party and are in love with the Tea Party Movement as a subset they see that could shift the rudimentary fundamentals of the party, essentially making no room whatsoever for any kind of moderation and making George W. Bush and his father especially look like liberals by comparison.

    Palin embodies what this movement means now, she has the shiny sheen a candidate needs and democrats will keep their mouths shut about her because in reality the GOP is trying to edge her out in the first place because they are feeling this shift/trend. Another great example is what happened in Kentucky or Alaska with the Republican candidates for senate. McConnell for example does not care for Rand Paul, nor endorsed him at all. Palin however did.

    Democrats will wait until she is actually the candidate, pull into the giant volumes of ****-ups and stupid **** that Palin has said or done, and destroy her for the inevitable landslide victory by Obama.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
