    It may come as a surprise to many on RealJock that someone with a member name such as Conservativejock would suggest that party leaders and many others at the top of Republican ranks be purged. With a view inside the party's ongoing war between old guard liberals and those who are the grassroots bedrock that drive elections across U.S. regions such as the southern states, I can assure Democrats that Republicans will not capture the Whitehouse until these old whores and bastards are purged. With guys like Chris Christie operating in New Jersey as if he were the kingpin of organized crime -- and the very one whom party brass wish to run on the "Big Ticket" in 2016 -- have no fear that we will not have another President Clinton on inauguration day 2017.

    See below ......

    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Big-name Republicans are standing behind New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie days after a former loyalist said evidence exists that Christie knew about a politically motivated traffic jam last year even as it happened.

    Christie has denied that claim and said he learned about the jam ordered by one of his aides only after it was over.

    Former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey executive David Wildstein hasn’t detailed the evidence.

    U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin says ‘‘nothing has been proven.’’ The 2012 vice presidential candidate appeared Sunday on ABC’s ‘‘This Week.’’


    On other news talk shows, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said there was no reason for Christie to step down as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.

    I've often said that I didn't leave the Republican party; the GOP left ME.

    woodsmen saidIt is the rebels that are causing problems. The GOP establishment has done what has been done since the time of Lincoln.

    Actually, it's the rebels that are trying to save the party. The rebels are the reason why 2010 happened.

    woodsmen said^If the rebels succeed, a new conservative party must be formed to the destruction of the GOP.

    Some say the rebels may be that new party if the GOP establishment succeeds.

    The one major figure that needs to be purged from influencing the GOP is that detestable James Dobson, the marginal child psychologist who founded Focus on the Family. There is the man who literally destroyed the GOP with his influence by bringing his mindless, right wing sycophants into power trying to convert the GOP into a theocracy that would eventually convert the US into a theocracy. It was James Dobson who destroyed the 2008 GOP ticket by pressuring John McCain to choose that dingbat from Alaska, Sarah Palin. From what I have read and heard since that time, McCain is very regretful of that horrendous choice that obviously wiped out any chances of him ever winning the US Presidency. It is time for a complete purge of all the radical tea partiers and NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS. It is time for moderates, progressives, and independents to join forces together and take back the GOP from these fringe lunatics.

    Seriously? Save the party? Do you have any idea how thoroughly and roundly disliked the Tea Party is by everyone except the fringe of the GOP?

    He's but one of many. Phyllis Schlafly has had the same and worse effect; she came to prominence (such as it is) fighting the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s and she's been spreading her brand of retrograde hate ever since. And for reasons I can't even begin to fathom, many on the right actually listen to her.

    woodsmen saidThe GOP has kept us safe and strong with the Democrats for 140 years since 1860. What is the records of the GOP rebels?

    Why do you keep hiding and unhiding your profile every five minutes?

    Yeah, let's see who's on the Establishment side:

    Chris Christie? Oh, wait, he's up shit's creek right now. He could possibly face impeachment or be forced to resign.

    Jeb Bush? Oh, wait, he's the brother of the most reviled President of modern times. That won't work.

    Marco Rubio? The guy who couldn't even deliver a SOTU rebuttal properly? Haha.

    The tea bagging morons of the right wing are ruining the country, not just the GOP. They have been responsible for creating the worst congress in history. Relying on tea bagging blow hards to do anything but swallow loads in various airport restrooms around the country is stupid and crazy.

    The republican party is currently in a death spiral
    They are relying on political dirty tricks to cling to power
    ie: voter suppression and district border games making it nearly impossible for incumbents to be voted out
    This guarantees that there will be no change in the Extreme right wing religious right roster that is ruining the party for the future
    The southern white strategy might work for now but those people are gonna be dead soon

    Okay. Give us non-GOP establishment candidates that are electable.


    Well ... ;-) ... this is the purging phase. I know. I just gave a cop out but after all I will not vote for any candidate in 2016 in any U.S. election. I baled. Furthermore it is not unlike there is some required purging on the Democratic side. Hee, hee. Any suggestions as to whom is on the list on that end?

    While I have nothing against a purging of Republican Party leadership, you do realize that it is the old guard or establishment members who are electable at the national level. Fringe conservatives only succeed in local elections.

    If you, conservativejock, want to purge the Republican party of the centrists or "liberals" of the Republican party, then your aim is that of the Tea Party, which is doing more harm than good for the party.

    YourName2000 saidTotally agree with you CJ (never thought I'd ever say that, lol.)

    This is one of my posts from another thread, but seems to fit:

    --------------------

    The Republican brand is *not* strong now. And so many of the obvious candidates have obvious flaws revealed through previous vetting/campaign processes. That's what made Christie look good before (especially to independents, and he didn't repulse a majority of GOP or Dems). But if much of this lingers, he's unelectable...whether he's the best man with the best ideas won't matter.

    The irony of Jeb Bush, is that of all the Bushes, he strikes me as the most electable. Dad stumbled. Brother imploded (early on and never recovered)...he seems much more grounded, but I can't imagine him overcoming the stench of the last Bush administration for at least several cycles.

    So if neither them, who? Rand Paul is also unelectable, even though his ideas (like his father's) are very interesting. Paul Ryan....dweeb. As president? Hell no...the party that likes cowboys like Reagan isn't gonna elect an amateur accountant (especially not such a whiny one). Perry is dumber than his hat. Rick Scott hasn't got a chance nationally. So who???

    As a Canadian, I want the bestest, strongest, most productive America...because Canada is Robin to America's Batman. So I want you guys to *at least* have two strong parties, because they'll bring the best out of your system. I actually worry that the GOP is positioning itself out of government with it's extreme policies, and that's not good for the Democratic Party. If America descends into a one party system for several cycles, it's just inevitable that corruption will take over the system, and stagnation. A system of checks and balances needs both. Put another way: when you play pool with losers, your own game goes down. If you want to play your best game, challenge yourself to play with winners. Sure you'll lose sometimes, but you'll always get better. I want America to get better...as goes the US, so goes the world.
    Probably it is time for Canada to stop being "Robin" and start reducing its heavy reliance just on the US for economic prosperity. Start strengthening economic ties with other countries and build up a customer base in those countries. This will help Canadians strengthen their national identity and sovereignty and it will greatly help them diversify and strengthen their economy. For a change I would love to see Canada, Mexico, and our European and Asian allies start influencing US culture and behavior instead of the other way around like it has been for years.

    They are also the reason 2012 happened, the reason we can't accelerate job growth, and the reason marriage equality is still up in the air. There needs to be a purge of Republican Party regressive conservative nutjobs.

    FLAKY FUNDAMENTALISTS like Jockfever need to be evicted from the GOP before they can do anymore damage to the GOP and our country in general.
