Could Sarah Palin and Mark Levin Leave the Republican Party and Creating a New One Called the “Freedom Party?”


If Sarah Palin and Mark Levin create the  “Freedom Party” it is not because they left the Republican Party, it is because the Republican Party left them.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin responded to a Fox News Channel viewer’s Twitter question Saturday about the possibility of creating a new political party called the “Freedom Party” with fellow conservative and talk show host Mark Levin. Palin floated the idea of crating a new party if the GOP continues to abandon its conservative principles. Personally, I am not too far away from telling the establishment GOP to take a hike myself. The Republican party has turned into the RINO party where they have produced continued moderate, wishy-washy presidential candidates like John McCain and Mitt Romney. It was conservatives and the Tea Party vote and enthusiasms  in 2010 and won the House for the GOP. Since then the establishment, elitists Republicans have fought conservatives every inch of the way.

Tuesday’s elections were seen as a crucial moment for measuring the staying power of the Tea Party movement, which was born out of frustration with the political establishment and steeped in economic anxiety.

“I don’t think there’s any question that if it were not for the Tea Party, the Republican margin in the House of Representatives would not be as high as it’s going to be,” CNN senior political analyst David Gergen said Tuesday night. “They gave a lot of enthusiasm and fuel to the Republican Party.”

Now we are witness to Republicans like Marco Rubio, who claimed to be a conservative, and the other back stabbing Republicans who voted for the Senate bill on immigration where they thumbed their nose at the rule of law and created an amnesty bill. It is not Obama or Democrats that have ruined the GOP, it is the establishment republicans who have done so, putting your personal power ahead of country and principles.

Enough is enough Republican Party, you are about to go the way of the Whigs  if you keep it up. More and more I actually think that a third party is the way to go because the establishment Republicans are really no different than Democrats. Big government progressives are progressives no matter what party affiliation they belong to.

The Daily Caller:

I love the name of that party — the ‘Freedom Party,’” Palin said. “And if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan, then yeah, more and more of us are going to start saying, ‘You know, what’s wrong with being independent,’ kind of with that libertarian streak that much of us have. In other words, we want government to back off and not infringe upon our rights. I think there will be a lot of us who start saying ‘GOP, if you abandon us, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in a one or the other private majority parties that rule in our nation, either a Democrat or a Republican.’ Remember these are private parties, and you know, no one forces us to be enlisted in either party.”

UPDATE I: Some web sites that used to once be credible when run by James Joyner, think that we are “true believers” because we actually believe in holding politicians to their word. Go figure. No one said forming a third party was easy. In fact, if one was ever formed the GOP would probably become a “super” minority in government. But at some point one has to either vote for their principles or vote in political whores who cannot be trusted. Marco Rubio and Bob Corker ran on securing the border before any talk of pathway to citizenship. Of course that was before they were elected. Why would either of them wonder why they are being looked upon as turn-coats and backstabbers? Hmm, from The Atlantic 2006, Corker says he is against illegal immigration.

In Tennessee’s Senate race, meanwhile, Democrat Harold Ford takes a hard line on border security. One of his television ads says, “Harold Ford Jr. will get control of our borders, get tough on illegals and employers who break the law.” His Republican opponent, construction company owner Bob Corker, calls Ford a phony. A Corker ad claims that Ford “votes against border security and against putting troops on the border, then says he wants to fight illegal immigration.”

In the video below, Rubio says we have a significant illegal immigration problem in this country. We have to balance that we are a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. Its just too bad his Senate Gang of 8 bill was just pandering to illegals and no upfront border security.

Remember when Rubio cared about the rule of law and the US Constitution?

At some point when a party no longer is principled and can be believed as to what they say they will do, let alone serve the people they represent, what else is there but to create something that will? Just ask the Whigs.

      At Last…
      Shades of Ross Perot.

      Tonight a Columbian lady who works at the local grocers said that it took her ten years to get her US citizenship. She is furious. She also added “amnesty” made her citzenship a garbage piece of paper . Just throw it away. Its nothing.

      Very sad.

      Mark Levin – 6/18/13

      “And I want to warn the Republican Leadership about something. If I and millions of us decide to leave you; if I and millions of us – the conservative base, the constitutionalists, that taxpayers, the people who make this country work – if we decide to leave you, you’re finished. You’re kaput. You’ll never be in the majority again.

      And God knows you’re provoking us.”

      I got one thing to say to her.

      Don’t let the door hit ya, where the good lord split ya. Who needs her? She’s about the worst spokesperson for the GOP ever.

      Let her and Levin go create some third party and LOSE.

      GOP is the only way, the thing to do is elect people who are real Conservatives. Like Ron Paul, Like Pat Buchanan, Like Mark Sanford. and not these idiot Neocons.

      Just my two cents.
      SM: Patrick, I respect your 2 cents, but I only wish it were true. Do you really think that the Republican Party respects conservatives? I hardly think that Mark Levin is a necon. He was there under Ronald Reagan and was a chief of staff for Attorney General Edwin Meese.

      The GOP continually loses because they go to the middle and give the finger to their base. The GOP continually gets away from the principles of the Republican party and calls out those who actually are Reaganites.

      My personal opinion is that the moderate Republicans are destroying the Party. Had the Tea Party not come out in numbers in 2010, the GOP would control no part of government.

      Take the amnesty immigration bill passed by the Senate. States like TN who are adamantly against the bill in big numbers had two RINO senators vote shamnesty.

      The GOP has made grave mistakes and it would not surprise me if a Third party was formed. It actually may be time, because the Republican party is not living up to their principles.

      It HAS happened in the UK with the UKIP (United Kingdom Independent Party) led by Nigel Farage.

      “Far from being a threat to the Conservative Party, UKIP is a threat to the entire political class. The party is the fastest-growing in Britain today, with people joining us from across the political spectrum. That growth is evident in national opinion polls”

      The UK conservative base has been exactly sold out as here. Same problems with the added insult of the EU dictators.

      Let Palin shriek – Maybe someone, anyone will hear.

      When the Republican Platform on Immigration is considered why are there not 14 recalls currently being processed? Logic dictates that these traitors do not represent the Republican Party. Think about it. The immigration bill would not have passed with the required number of votes if it were not for the betrayal of “We the People” by these 14 Republican dissenters.

      2004 Republican Party Platform: on Immigration

      Here are the 14 GOP senators who voted for the legislation:

      Marco Rubio (Fla.)
      Lamar Alexander (Tenn.)
      Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
      Kelly Ayotte (N.H.)
      Jeffrey Chiesa (N.J.)

      We’ve been having this third party argument for 25 years now.

      Reagan made all of America see the benefits of conservatism and smaller government. We have yet to find an ambassador as eloquent and as loved…and whose who could replicate Reagan’s success are being driven out of the party by the Rubios and McCains (and sad to say the Paul Ryans).

      This is a necessary process. We’re lucky we have the luxury of a Democrat party that is on the verge of total annihilation when America rise up by the millions against Obamacare over the next year plus. We have to be ready as the party of true conservatism to respond.

      On Immigration: Make E-verify mandatory nationwide

      In this country, the rule of law guarantees equal treatment to every individual, including more than one million immigrants to whom we grant permanent residence every year. That is why we oppose any form of amnesty for those who intentionally violate the law. Granting amnesty only rewards and encourages more law breaking.
      We support the mandatory use of the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (S.A.V.E.) program–an internet-based system that verifies the lawful presence of applicants.

      We insist upon enforcement at the workplace through verification systems so that jobs can be available to all legal workers. Use of the E-verify program–an internet-based system that verifies the employment authorization and identity of employees– must be made mandatory nationwide. State enforcement efforts in the workplace must be welcomed, not attacked. When Americans need jobs, it is absolutely essential that we protect them from illegal labor in the workplace.

      Republicans would ultimately urge House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) to pass the Senate bill, even if they won’t vote for it, in order to “get it off our backs.” National Republicans will pressure Boehner to pass the bill to avoid becoming a “minority party for a generation.”

      So the GOP is DOA anyway no matter the direction of assult, from outside or inside.

      Ross Perot had 25% of the vote. I remember his daughter received a death threat right before her wedding .. that was the perverbial straw in his political life.
      The threat was portrayed by the “media” as bogus and that he was a quitter. The ever truthful media.

      SM: How will passing a law that ensures 20-25 million new Democrat voters not ensure the GOP will forever be a minority party. Let alone how does America pay for them. The argument that it brings in new tax revenue is the biggest bunch of BS ever. They are here illegally and already buy things so they already pay sales tax. If they have stolen other’s SS#;s they are paying taxes.

      However, we already know that 47% of Americans presently do not make enough $’s to pay income taxes. I would dare say that 80% of illegals with a pathway to citizenship fall into that category. How on earth can America afford another 20 million + people who pay $1 into the govt and take $3 away?

      It was Republican dirty tricks

      “Last year, he asserted during an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” that he aborted his initial exploratory presidential campaign because he learned that a Republican “dirty tricks” squad had wiretapped his Dallas office and was planning to disrupt his daughter’s wedding and smear her with a faked photograph.”

      My error thought the death threats were against his daughter but apparently they were againt him

      The GOP continually loses because they go to the middle and give the finger to their base. The GOP continually gets away from the principles of the Republican party and calls out those who actually are Reaganites.




      However .. Marc Rubio along with 13 other RINOs “gave the finger” did not move to the middle on the Comprehensive Immigration Bill … they move all the way to the left. What was the motivation?

      Think about it. Marc Rubio takes it upon himself in the last six months to flip flop on his original illegal immigration position. He disregards the pleas of Conservatives … Conservatives who gave their all … Conservatives who prayerfully and financially supported his rise in the political arena. Instead … Rubio breaks rank … sides with Democrats and RINOs and furthers the agenda of an Islamic appeasing/Marxist Barack Obama. An utter betrayal! I cannot get past it.

      MARCH – 2009

      Marco Rubio, 2009
      “I am strongly against amnesty. The most important thing we need to do is enforce our existing laws. We have existing immigration laws that are not being adequately enforced. Nothing will make it harder to enforce the existing laws, if you reward people who broke them. It demoralizes people who are going through the legal process, its a very clear signal of why go through the legal process, if you can accomplish the same thing if you go through the illegal process. And number two, if demoralizes the people enforcing the laws. I am not, and I will never support any effort to grant blanket legalization/amnesty to folks who have entered, stayed in this country illegally.”

      JANUARY – 2013

      Rubio-Obama immigration plan?
      Senator’s proposal looks like White House policy
      Wednesday, 01.16.13

      Not only do Rubio and Obama’s plans create a similar type of amnesty for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, the two politicians have used similar language.

      Here’s Obama unveiling his plan in May 2011, relatively little-reported at the time:

      “Those who are here illegally, they have a responsibility as well. So they broke the law, and that means they’ve got to pay their taxes, they’ve got to pay a fine, they’ve got to learn English. And they’ve got to undergo background checks and a lengthy process before they get in line for legalization. That’s not too much to ask.”

      Here’s Rubio in the Wall Street Journal on the undocumented:

      “They would have to come forward. They would have to undergo a background check…They would have to pay a fine, pay back taxes, maybe even do community service. They would have to prove they’ve been here for an extended period of time. They understand some English and are assimilated. Then most of them would get legal status and be allowed to stay in this country.”

      Could it be the many of the illegals crossing the border are not Hispanic. Could it be that millions of Islamic adherences are being afforded amnesty … a pathway to citizenship.

      The United States of America was founded as a Constitutional Republic! A Republic which placed States rights over Federal law.

      Genesis 12:1-3: “Now the LORD had said to Abram, Get you out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you: And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing: AND I WILL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS YOU, AND CURSE HIM THAT CURSES YOU: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.”


      2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.”

      #21. I actually remember when “Outside the Beltway” was a credible blog, when owned by James Joyner,before the new management turned it into a joke.

      What a shame.

      True Believer? Really? You think some one is a true believer because you actually want a politician to do what they ran on? What kind of a fool are you? When Rubio ran he said that enforcing the border would be first, not last. Corker of TN did as well. So sorry OTB is you think that politicians lying and selling the country down the river is OK. It does not make one a true believer, it makes one holding their elected officials accountable.

      Thanks for the reminder to take you off my blogroll. No need to promote your dribble.

      She did not say she was going to, she was asked by a caller if she would and she laid out the reason what would take place to make it possible. Oh yea, people want to just keep voting for a party that does not listen to them.
