The progressive-socialist-democrats are experts at divide and conquer. If race baiting doesn't work, its a war on women or some other social issue that is simply a distraction - but a dividing distraction.
If we all set aside personal agendas, and get only a slate of candidates that will support and defend the constitution, while furthering a conservative free market capitalist agenda (fiscal conservative) - we will have a Constitutional Conservative.
This whole 'compromise' thing is simply giving in. The progressive-socialist-democrats are also experts at digging in their heels and not budging - so the GOP believes the progressive-socialist-democrats when they say 'if you want the [pick a minority or group] vote, you need to 'compromise' with us' and, sure enough, the progressive-socialist-democrats get what they always wanted - progress towards their goal and distancing conservatives from theirs.
The standard response (see below) of every Constitutional conservative, when asked about a personal and social issue, should be 'That is a personal social issue. With the individual being the largest minority, our position is for the individual to address their personal needs and beliefs and for us to prosper by the fiscal conservative values of free market capitalism while supporting and defending our Constitution.' I will guarantee success - continuing the path of the GOP is failure.

There is talk - particularly from Mark Levin and Sarah Palin - of leaving the GOP (Gone Obviously Progressive). I like Mark Levin a great deal and people like him would be strong leaders. I have agreed with some of Sarah Palin's positions. She was brought in to save a fledgling progressive RINO candidate and it failed; she was then summarily thrown under the bus. People forget - or didn't pay enough attention to know - that the Obama and McCain campaigns were both bankrupt in the fall of 2007, closing doors - Clinton and Romney were far ahead in the polls and up to the February primaries had significant leads. Suddenly Obama and McCain surged, had tons of money and could hardly lose a primary.
One of Obama's first acts was to publicly remind McCain that he had won the election -- and McCain has been a suck ass since. McCain being a progressive is also what forced Palin to propel herself - she had to forever separate herself from McCain. Imagine them two in office (McCain would not have run again - and I think that was part of the plan - Palin versus Clinton 2012).
It is time for a new party – one committed to our Constitution. I like 'Freedom Party' (or LiberTea Party). This party must be very mindful of two things, as detailed in my book – the definitive guide to the direction of our Country, and solutions based on our history:
1. Party platforms – planks if you will – and candidates need only to keep two key issues: a) Constitutional Freedoms; and b) Fiscal Freedom
- Constitutional Freedoms: If it is not defined in our Freedom Documents, it is essentially irrelevant and up to the sovereign states and sovereign People. Social issues are divisive and the GOP fails to accept that the Democrats will continue to use these issues against the GOP. More important, internally they are destructive to the party.
- Fiscal Freedom: If it is not a free market capitalist issue and solution, it is essentially irrelevant. The economy is not a ‘trickle down’ – it is a continuous circle, emanating from the center and rippling out. It is socialism that breaks this continuum.
Socialism is unconstitutional and anti-American; therefore, socialism is equal to traitor. The Tea Party and Libertarian Party both oppose big government, onerous taxation and big government through onerous taxation. Democrats and liberals favor big government and onerous taxation. Progressives, socialists, social equality and social justice all support big government through onerous taxation. The current GOP has jumped the rails to the latter group. It is the Parasitic Cult versus the Fiscal and Freedom Cultures of America. Socialism versus Capitalism and our Constitution.
The GOP is too committed to compromise...compromising their core...and holding onto social issues that the Democrats use against them to divide the voters. They had a chance to work with Libertarians and Tea Party, but chose progressive – abandoning our Constitution.
The GOP has lost its way - and the time is now for a united party and a united People – Patriotism! A new conservative party needs to be grounded in the roots of our Country's history - the Constitution and the economy. Efforts towards social conformity should be abandoned, and only focus on fiscal responsibility and our Constitution - two things the socialists want – and must have – abandoned. To not pay attention to either is to give in to socialism. To support socialism is unconstitutional.
The Freedom Party must embrace the Constitution and stay away from all social issues. If asked about a social issue - the only response should be 'We are about supporting and defending our Constitution and the freedoms. That [social issue, race baiting, etc.] is not a Constitutional issue and we will not be detracted from our purpose by [social issue, race baiting, etc.]. The votes we earn are of the American people.’
The time is now to grow a new party from the ashes of the core history of our Founding Fathers and the Republican party. Every member of the Freedom Party should be required to take the original oath of office, "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States."
In the event that a Freedom Party is created to dismantle the GOP, crush the Democrat socialists, correct the ill-fated course of our Country, and support our Constitution and free market capitalist values, I will endorse and join the same.
