Sarah Palin Open to Creating New 'Freedom Party' if GOP Continues to 'Neglect Conservatives'

Source: The NY Daily News



The 2008 Republican nominee for vice president said that many conservatives with "that libertarian streak" feel ignored by the GOP. If this presumed neglect continues, Palin said, creating a new home for conservatives might not be such a bad idea.

Palin expects more and more people who want government off their backs to ask, "You know, what's wrong with being independent?"

"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."

"I love the name of that party the 'Freedom Party,'" Palin replied. "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."

66. Exactly

Sounds like contributions to SarahPAC are drying up.

She'd be happy to start a new party and control the finances. I'm sure the founder of a party gets a salary commensurate to the best paid CEO without having to actually do anything like run for office.

Maybe she'll become the GOP's Ralph Nader for siphoning off a portion of the base and we can finally be done with her. We can hope.

Because with a Freedom Party candidate, a Tea Party candidate and a Republican Party candidate splitting the votes of right-leaning Americans, we should have 435 Democrats in the House of Representatives and 100 Democrats in the Senate by January 2019.

Fortunately, Palin is too egocentric to admit that's what will happen.

for whom.....

But that is a good question.
Who here is being oppressed by the government?
Who here cannot do what they want to do?

As a gay man, I can't get married if I wanted to in this state (NC)... but I don't want to, and exactly which party is interfering if I did? Huh?

I suppose if I had a chemical plant or was a big oil company and that pesky government was stopping me from dumping my shit in the town well......


All these teabagger/ libertarian types need to go on an extended vacation to Somalia or North Korea or something and then come tell us how the government gets in the way of ...whatever it is they want to, but can't, do.

If my business cannot make money WITHIN THE RULES.... but must change them specifically to make it profitable.... then I'm a lousy businessman or the business shouldn't exist.

THAT is the "free market".... not the businesses that can get laws and rules changed to make it easier for them.



It's like when they called Karl Rove a "political genius!". Cheating is genius? Now if he had accomplished the same thing without lying and cheating, that might be genius....

How is changing the rules that protect everyone to your advantage a "free" market?

She can take all the Tea Party members with her and form her own party.
The ones who "didn't give in", ya know, the ones who "didn't cave" to Obama and "didn't compromise" and let him start Obamacare. (yuck, poor sick people).
Or allow Amerikuns to have "gay marriages" (yuck, against gawd's laws).
Or allow aliens to come to Amerika and become citizens (yuck, no more aliens).
Or allow Obama to take our guns!! (Yippee, reload and shoot'em up).

She wants to put gawd first, then the Constitution, then have her head carved on Mount Rushmore.

That's not too much to ask, is it?

Think of the Freedumb Party as a filter attached to the G.O.P. Through the tiny little holes of that filter, only the stupidist and most racist morons of them all can pass. Sarah Palin will lead the purist and most undefiled group of imbecille's that America has to offer. They will be an "elite" group of the ugliest, the dumbest, the worst in every way.

I didn't think conservatives could devolve any further, but Sarah Palin turned out to be a one-woman devolution machine. I don't know what kind of radiation she puts out, but any conservative within her sphere immediately starts talking even worse gibberish than before.

58. I wasn't super-psyched about Sen. Obama,

and having remembered just how much most Republicans hated Sen. McCain for all the pork cutting and McCain-Feingold, I almost considered voting for the gentleman from Arizona (still leaning for Sen. Obama, but I did slightly waiver).

Then, getting breakfast at a cafe in a car dealership on a Saturday morning, I looked up at the TV and saw some librarian-looking woman getting off a plane, with "McCain picks woman running mate" scrolling along. Thinking how he only picked a woman to look "diverse" against a black man, I immediately wrote of Sen. McCain.

Then I learned about Sarah, and that sealed me forever against the G.O.P. How a major party could put that nitwit up to be a coronary away from a particular Gunlocke chair in Washington is beyond me.

33. Why Not Just Join The Existing Libertarian Party

More likely it is because Palin just doesn't have that much in common with a true Libertarian.

What Palin is really describing would require this party to not be the Freedom Party, but the God's Law Party. That is not exactly Libertarian nor freedom.

46. The Constitution Party would fit her

The party currently puts a large focus on immigration, calling for stricter penalties towards illegal immigrants and a moratorium on legal immigration until all federal subsidies to immigrants are discontinued.[4] The party absorbed the American Independent Party, originally founded for George Wallace's 1968 presidential campaign. The American Independent Party of California has been affiliated with the Constitution Party since its founding; however since 2008, current party leadership is disputed and the issue is in court to resolve this conflict.[citation needed] The Constitution Party receives substantial support from Christian Right organizations, and achieved major party status in Colorado after coming in second place in the 2010 Colorado gubernatorial election.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_Party_%28United_States%29


Their party platform preamble starts:

The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States.

This great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been and are afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.

The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.

The Constitution of these United States provides that "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States." The Constitution Party supports the original intent of this language. Therefore, the Constitution Party calls on all those who love liberty and value their inherent rights to join with us in the pursuit of these goals and in the restoration of these founding principles.

The U.S. Constitution established a Republic rooted in Biblical law, administered by representatives who are Constitutionally elected by the citizens. In such a Republic all Life, Liberty and Property are protected because law rules.


So they wants lots of Bible, everywhere.

67. Yikes, There Already Is A God's Law Party

Called the Constitution Party, with roots back to George Wallace. That does sound about right for Sarah Palin. And their knowledge of history is just as skimpy as is Sarah Palin's. Plus, they talk as though there is no conflict whatsoever between Constitutional boundaries and Biblical boundaries, not withstanding the 1st Amendment.

The Constitution did not establish a Republic rooting in Biblical Law. It did establish a Republic but secular in nature. Many of our Founding Fathers were Deists, while Christian, who believed God created the world then stood back and watched so no wonder they created a secular nation.

'Cause, see, outlawing slavery was just another example of big government infringing on the freedoms of slave-owners. Darn those anti-slave liberals! The party of Lincoln should re-dedicate itself to its core values of maximum freedom and minimum accountability for every single American with more than a billion dollars in wealth.

115. First of all, Sarah Palin is not a conservative

She is a right wing moron.

A conservative is one who believe in some sort of hierarchy is necessary for the functioning of an orderly society; however, a conservative also recognizes that this social hierarchy is a man-made construct and that this construct may become dysfunctional over a period of time.

Please note that this writer is not a conservative, but a democrat. I do not believe that a social hierarchy is necessary for the good health of society. On the contrary, a rigid social hierarchy is, in fact, unhealthy.

A tenant of right wing ideology is, contrary to conservative doctrine, that social hierarchy is sanctioned by a super-human force and should never be questioned. This force may be divine or natural, but usually framed in a way to make it irrational. Claims that this race is better than that one, men are simply better than women, that heterosexuals are better homosexuals or that there is only one true religion and all others are false are never supported by any scientific facts or sound logic. Consequently, an irrational social hierarchy must be defended with violence and oppression as members of the underclass will rebel against the system and even more intelligent members of the privileged class are likely to question anything irrational. The Aryan ideal of Nazi Germany was based on irrational "theories" that were based on faulty science at best and at worse were nothing more than racist assertions made up out of thin air. Less murderous racist states, such as the Apartheid regime in South Africa, are still based on a social order that the official social mythology holds cannot be challenged when in fact challenging it is as easy as saying "I don't think so."

When pressed, a right winger may come up with something that is pseudo-logical argument, often loaded with panglossian reasoning. For example, please click here and check out this guy's nonsense.

135. I love the name of that party, too.

To the lover of history, "freedom" has a very different meaning than the one projected by the people who use it.

For example, the Spartans were a military oligarchy that enslaved eighty percent of the people who lived within their territory. They were always on the opposite side of whatever the democracy of Athens was doing, and eventually teamed up with their historical enemies, the Persians, to defeat Athens. The Persians, of course, were the same Persians who killed King Leonidas and his Spartiate holplitai guard at Thermopylae pass, but Spartan leadership did not care about that so long as victory--for the vanishingly small leadership class of Sparta--was assured.

And what was the Spartan slogan for all of those years? "Freedom for the Greeks," of course.

American "freedom," in Republican parlance, is exactly as real as the "freedom" for which the Spartans fought, which is to say that it is not real at all except as a tool for separating more Americans from their lives and their property.

So yeah, Sarah Palin, you're really on to something there.
