If every Republican had the same conviction as @roamer_1 , we wouldn't be in the mess we're in right now.  His position has been consistent which is something the GOP has lacked for decades now.

:yowsa: That right there is just plain fact @Hoodat!

Personally, I have hoped that for at least one year in my lifetime our Congress would live within its means.  I am now pushing 60, and that has never happened.  Not once.  Not a single year.  Let that one sink in.  Sixty-three years in a row of deficit spending.  Roamer is right.  We won't survive as a nation on our current path.

You can make that 72 years in my case.  We no longer have to worry about our survival as a nation though as it died once and for all on December 11, 2020.

Organize the resistance in the reeducation camp.

Nope! I'll never make it to one of those.

Somehow, I think Mrs. Lincoln would disagree with the author's premise.

Kind of misleading headline, isn't it? "Makes Announcement" would be something like "I'm retiring" or "my show's going to another network or timeslot."

This is just a typical liberal opinion. Hardly an announcement, and it's not even from him, it's a paraphrase from Brigette Gabriel.

@PeteS in CA , get well soon... we miss your clickbait-busting.

Best wishes to Pete for a full recovery.

Damn, that's a nasty website.

It's been a week for misleading headlines. One poster did that on the Gonzaga hoops board last week. Instead of using the title of the column, "COVID-19 rates have conference commissioners anxious over possible midseason shutdown", his title to the thread was "SEASON TO BE SHUT DOWN".

Zags are now 15-0, and #1 in the polls. Before the thread was closed, it veered off into political talk that had no business on a hoops board.

Regarding Wallace's "announcement", that was old news, as we all know.

I have called that sumbitch Roams out many a time and have never been banned.  I have on several occasions called him an ass hole, a dumbass, a dipshit, and a few other things that good taste and decorum prevents me from posting these days.   Now, little newbie @christian  if you really want to know how to get banned, I can teach a clinic on that.  Am I right @mystery-ak
So till then STFU.

One thing they'll never accuse you of Wings, it'd be civility. I like that.  :beer:

Roamer is a true conservative and I credit him with holding the right positions on nearly every issue.


Thanks for that. It means more coming from an opponent than from my own... And like-in-kind: We ain't as cross-threaded as we seem to be.

Unfortunately, his idea of "unity" on the Right is nearly identical to the Dems idea of national "unity"...in that it means...unity in total and perfect agreement with their positions ONLY.

Well in the first place : it is working for the Democrats. They are winning on every front, and they serve their most extreme in lockstep. No one among them is calling for compromise. No mealy-mouthed need to eschew their basic values for popularity's sake... They got the balls to the wood all the time.

And no... I am fine with differences. I recognize factional conservatism... And I am fine with compromise, beyond the principled framework.

And your statement has a philosophical discontinuity - You are basically saying that SOME principles (truths) can be sacrificed in the service of unity... That is dissonance itself, and a rabbit trail that should be followed to it's end, just for giggles.

But winning an election can never be so perfect...it requires a coalition of likeminded folks who DO disagree on a number of issues. Without such a coalition, its not possible to win a national election...roamer's approach locks the right into that position, in which the positions we take are so narrow that winning 50% of the populace to our side simply can't be done.

Rejected outright. If Republicans actually performed according to their promises (which are all always conservative on the stump) there would be no worry getting elected. Conservatism has worked every time it's tried. Every major movement of the right has been Conservative - In the 90's the talk was always about whether a candidate could harness the the three factions of Conservatism to bring forth the Conservative juggernaut - And the only time Republicans have done anything is when that juggernaut moves.

And it can be done - After all, Democrats seem to be able to perform.
Burn the damn big circus tent down, and fill the Congress with true believers. see what happens next.

Akin to the old Reagan axiom...we have to run the MOST conservative candidate who CAN win....not simply the most conservative candidate.

Not when the 'most conservative that can win' is a McCain't or a Romulus... Or a NYC liberal...  :whistle:

Incompetence?  Give the devils their due, unadulterated corruption, political awhoring.
