Conservative offers $10K for plan to overtake GOP establishment


“The Liberty Prize" would be awarded to anyone who helps conservatives "take over the Republican Party"

BY JILLIAN RAYFIELD


Have a grand scheme to help conservatives oust establishment Republicans, take over the party, and win the White House in 2016? Well, you could just win $10,000 for your trouble.

Richard Viguerie, the Conservative fund-raiser and chairman of Conservative HQ, announced “The Liberty Prize,” a contest that will award a “$10,000 prize, plus fame, appreciation and the opportunity to save America” to the conservative who comes up with the best plan to “take over the Republican Party, win the November 2016 elections, and govern America by 2017.”

Viguerie, who was a big fan of Rick Santorum in the 2012 presidential race, writes in his announcement:

The most important political battle in America is not between Republicans and Democrats or between conservatives and liberals. It is the battle for control of the Republican Party between establishment big government Republicans and limited government, constitutional conservatives. It has become clear that establishment Republican and Democratic politicians have failed America because they have both accepted big government as the solution to every problem.

He continues by referencing Karl Rove’s new initiatve to steamroll far-right conservatives, called the Conservative Victory Project, which he writes means that “conservatives must have a well-organized and well-thought-out plan to take control of the GOP from the grassroots up.”

Astounding.

Why does this look more like Viguerie wanting to update his database of all the gullible wingnuts, while getting someone to write a section of his book, rather than the way he's going to 'take over the Republican party'?

7. They're going to get responses like "Uphold the Second Amendment!" and

"Conservative principles!" and "Impeach teh Muslim Kenyan!!11!" and "Sarah-Cuda!!" But in the end, they'll quietly go with voter disenfranchisement.
