Comments: Can the Tea Party and Conservatives get along with Republicans? Apparently Not!


The general consensus from the readers at IOwnTheWorld.com concerning Tea Party or Conservative compromise with the old-line Republican Party is a resounding NO!

Yesterday I wrote the article 'Conservatives, Tea Party and GOP: Can we find some way to get along just a little bit?' and posted it in the Bullpen at IOwnTheWorld.

In this article I opined that if the Tea Party, Conservatives and the Republican Party cannot find a way to work out some of the differences between them, the only result from that fact in the 2014 election and 2016 election will be Democrat Party victory.

What so many in these comments state, however, is that if this is the price the country needs to pay for real change that may take more than one more election cycle to achieve then so be it!

Are Republican's no better than the Democrats anyway making compromise the wrong avenue to take?

Will full Democrat control in Washington result in making the reversing of the Obama agenda in the future impossible?

Any thoughts?

IOwnTheWorld.com Comments to 'When is it enough?' which had taken issue with the TPC article!



  • YES! We should have started in the 90′s. The GOP is every bit the enemy as the Dems. We have one-party rule. It sucks but that’s the reality. The odds for a peaceful restoration are fading. Our only chance is Sarah Palin. We have no one else up to the task.

    CMK agrees with this, but has little voice in the process.
    Chief Rides Toy Horse In Mama Jeans has approval rating of 41%. This is not simply because he is not liberal enough for the dope smoking, sodomites. It is because right has lost against wrong, and has backed away, waiting for true leadership.
    The time is now to move away from the moderates and gather the warriors together.
    The left is stoned from smoking peace pipe, and euphoric from temporary victory.
    This is not time to get along, it is time to fight and win, with new direction, away from weak, and toward strong future for our children.

    Isn’t it odd that the very ones who should be demanding our elected representatives stand on principle, are the ones saying compromise of those principles is necessary for a conservative to be elected.
    That is not the road to Liberty, it is the road to ruin and is the exact problem which brought us to our current situation.
    Unfortunately, compromise is now so firmly entrenched that any resistance is fraught with danger. For example, Lincoln’s victory in 1860 which precipitated the War of Northern Aggression would not have been possible had the Democrats remained united in their opposition. Nevertheless, kicking the can down the road politically will have no better results than the fed doing the same thing with the economy.
    Stand for Righteousness and be willing to fight to the death to defend it!

    We really do need a party of Truth. Not a party of assholes who are consumed by their own lust for money.
    The whole political election system is corrupt.
    Sorry, I don’t have a solution to offer, other than massive impeachments forced by armed citizens who are tired of all this shit.

    I vote verifiable, reliable Tea Partiers (Cruz, Palin) in Texas. I will vote no other, nor give money to the RNC again.
    However, voting, elections and Republican democracy are finished in the US without secession, partition or civil war to disinfect the plague of Marxism.

    I agree. We my have to take a hit and lose a battle or two to win the war. We need to play the long game rather than the two-year election media fed cycle. The good thing about Palin is the Left has already taken their best shots at her. Throw Ben Carson or Allen West into the mix and attacks against them can be portrayed as misogynistic racists.
    Two sides can play Alinsky’s game. They have used them against her, time to throw it back at them and in the case of liberals they are an easy target.

    This past week, Beck has been saying we’re “this close” to winning. If the Repubs can defeat amnesty, Beck is convinced that Juan McLame is going over to the demonrats.
    So don’t let up, peeps. Keep calling your reps and bitching about Zerocare and amnesty. They might not be in DC, but the home offices will answer.

    Just like 0bama and ‘bipartisanship’, any time someone says ‘we need to come together’ he really means ‘you need to agree with me’. We each need to stick to our personal principles. It is one thing to have an open discussion that helps us to clarify or even change our stance on certain issues, but to give in to someone else’s principles is simply abdication of responsibility, and that is the way to total government control.

    Why should the Conservatives cave to the Republicans, why don’t they align with us for a true contrast against the liberals that want to control this country?

    HERE HERE !!! I couldn’t agree more !!
    I said it on another post about McConnell where I am currently fighting Republicans in this State that constantly rant about how McConnell is defeated in the primary we are guarantteeing the Democrats will win his Senate seat. And even if the Democrats don’t win we still would lose so much power in the Senate that can help Kentucky.
    What I said was what difference does it make. If I vote for and thus help to elect McConnell who “works with” (read: CATERS TO) Democrats and basically puts up a milktoast fight, but in the end gives the Democrats exactly what they wanted, what difference is there then if McConnell has lost to the Democrat. NONE !!
    And why, if we are all truly supporting the Tea Party’s major tenets of smaller more limited government with far lower spending, would we want to worry about having a Senator who can “bring home the bacon” when we are professing that there shouldn’t be any bacon to bring home.
    Anyone scared of losing if they don’t support the RINOs has already lost and is just in denial !!!

    I agree the RINO Republicans should compromise with actual conservatives just like they compromise with the socialist, they should surrender (and just rubber stamp what ever Tea Party / Real Conservatives tell them to do).

    From the article:
     it is critical for the Tea Party, Conservatives and mainstream Republican Partiers to figure out a way in which they can somehow work towards a common goal which is defeat of the Democrats!”
    I’m nowhere near convinced that defeat of the Democrats is goal of the RINOs.

    I’m with you, Claudia. I’m sick of being sold out.
    Most of the Republican elite are cowards, and craven compromisers. The corruption is too widespread to be reversed.

    If the Republican Party, of which I am proudly not a member, nominates for president, congresscritter or senator anyone other than a staunch Constitutionalist, I will no longer vote for them just because they are the lesser of the same evil that is tearing our country apart.
    BTW, ‘loose’ is an adjective. It means not bond together. ‘lose’ is a verb. It means to come to be without.

    I am not embarrassed that I voted for Bush in 2000 or 2004. I am not embarrassed that I voted for McCain in 2008. I am not embarrassed that I voted for Romney in 2012. I am embarrassed that I voted for Perot in 1992.
    I am proud I did not vote for Gore, Kerry or Obama.
    Sarah Palin has a great philosophy, but she can’t outwit the likes of Catey Kouric or whatever her name was, and that is just sad.
    If you want to make a difference, run for office. It can be local dog catcher, I don’t care, but until you put your ass on the line, quit bitcin’ about what others do to get there. I suspect that many will take offense to what I am saying but I don’t care. Put your ass and all your family in the lime light…let them dig through your records and follow your friends around to find dirt on you…it’s easy to be a Monday morning quarterback…

    Menderman, I take it as a both/and situation, rather than an either/or one.
    I for one will no longer be used and legitimize the GOP (caveat: 2014, just to keep the Dems from taking over the House while OBoy is in power).
    I for one have tried what you suggest, to no avail (thwarted at every turn). Good luck to those who try and succeed to one degree or another.
    But I have had my fill of the “you’ll only help the Democrats!” fear tactics as the GOP candidates become worse and worse (better said: more and more like the Democrats themselves).
    Now, I am convinced, is the right time for a new Party.
