Anyone remember Ross Perot? He was an independent that I really got excited about.....but then he when nutso on us

He said so many of the right things in the beginning and he wasn't a politician. You believed he meant what he was saying.

CVC unfortunately Perot took enough of the conservative votes to help clinton get elected. Clinton is the one behind the legislature that gave financial backing to community oranizations such as acorn and public allies . Paul was right on the money with finances , I just didnt agree with his view on foriegn policy . Romney would have been great with the financial crisis and would have beat Obama had when finances fell apart last oct. Huccabee is a nice guy but split the conservative vot during the primaries allowing for a moderate to liberal Mccain to represent the republican party. We need a conservative slash , libertarian to be the republican canditate. Just the way I see things...

I still believe we need someone like Ron Paul.

I also voted for Ron Paul in the primary. It's just too bad there aren't more politicians like him.

I'm also from Michigan onzaman. Obviously, you are as disgusted as I am. I cannot agree with you more. They are not doing us any justice.

I will make about 75% less than I made last year. Everyone you talk to here in our home state has either lost their job or took a pay cut. The Michigan politicians need to do the same.

The absence of a conservative in the last election was by design. The left wanted McCain from the start because they knew he couldn't win -- conservatives wouldn't vote for him because he's too liberal, and liberals wouldn't vote for him because he was Republican. That's why the media pushed him so much and the Dems never really went after him in the primaries.

Two people scared the bejeezus out of the Dems. First was Mitt Romney -- a Republican who won the governorship in what could be the nation's most liberal state. Anyone who can sell conservatism to a state full of liberals was a huge threat to be destroyed -- so all you heard about Romney was people discussing whether his religion was a factor. Did you ever hear his message?

Along the same lines, Sarah Palin was a HUGE threat -- a true conservative with popular appeal that couldn't be attacked in traditional terms. But they destroyed her anyway by settling on a "she's inexperienced and stupid" mantra that they repeated so much that it was coming out of everyone's pores. Like Romney, they shut her down and kept the debate away from things like platform and qualifications. The truly amazing thing is how they got America to swallow the idea that an accomplished governor was too inexperienced to be Vice President, but that a guy who had never held an executive position in his life was qualified to hold the presidency itself.

As a side note, we had Joe the Plumber -- a guy on the street that just asked a question that revealed something ugly about Obama. And in return he was ripped apart and destroyed on a national stage.

Any appealing conservative in the future will be dealt with the same way in the media -- scorn, snobbery, ridicule, and accusations of lying, hatred and racism. It's the same mantra they chant for any popular conservative -- Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Michael Savage, etc. No matter who they are, the same things are said about them -- but none of their critics ever respond to the points they raise or prove them wrong. It's all about destroying the person and silencing the voice, rather than competing with ideas.

Until America wakes up, stops buying into that tactic, and starts demanding that the issues get answered, it's not going to stop.

Great analysis and post.

I for one will not tolerate the race card being played. It is tired, worn out and needs to be discarded. I will push back anytime I see it used.

I am also committed to listening to Beck and Limbaugh daily so I know what to think and say (for the libs that may read this, this is actually a joke, but I know you believe it to be true).

hunter g,

I vote with my gun rights in mind and in general I am a conservative. Of course I would vote for an independent if he could win and was the best candidate.

The name 'party' as applied to a Repuplican 'Party' or whatever means a group thats together with multiple goals and together so they can win.

Barak Hussein Obama is a radical as I see him. I hope he loses in the next election and before that his supporters lose in elections.
