In Illinois, a former Republican stronghold, the GOP rigged their Senatorial selection process to exclude rising GOP candidate Jim Oberweis. Oberweis went from a virtual "unknown" to a strong 2nd in the states primary and was rising quickly, but because [b]he stood with 80 percent of Americans[/b] in wanting to curb illegal immigration and defening our borders, he was shoved away :wacko:
For true fans of the Republican party, this move all but destroyed the parties chances, as Alan "Tom" Keyes is about as popular as steaming pile of dog **** these days--sending disdain and disgust among Illini conservatives.
By the way, the Repub's pulled this liberal garbage in California in the 1980's and it destroyed the party in the state.
When we will these country-club elitist realize you can't "outpander" liberal Democrats and keep your base? :rolleyes:
[quote][b]Now Keyes, the hand-picked choice of the Illinois Republican State Central Committee, is getting hammered by favorite Barack Obama.
According to a Chicago Tribune/WGN-TV poll, Keyes' candidacy could hurt other Republicans in local and legislative races. [b]Nearly three in ten voters said they were less likely to back GOP candidates because of the way party leaders went about settling on Keyes as their candidate.
More than twice as many voters have a negative impression of Keyes than a favorable one.[/b]
Black voters, white suburban women, independents and even conservatives all favor Obama over Keyes.
That's the best you can do, in terms of a retort Weeb? Post a photo of an obviously washed up liberal :D :lol: :P
Yea, one trick pony?
This is one issue, but it's the one the issue that totally lost California for the Republican's. Now, thanks to this lawless travesty and pansy-ass Republicans that pander to lawlessness, states like Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and other are swinging Democrat, because there aren't enough "sheep" like you to blindly follow these leftist leaning Republicans.
Are you oblivious to this, or are you really such a Bush groupie, you can care less about the future of your party?
OK, you may get your wish: Lib Bush might beat an obvious raisin-sack like Kerry, but I'd take a few seconds to read what is going on in Illinois. The people are so freaking sick and tired of being used like toilet paper by the Republicans and their snot-nosed country club pals, that they are fleeing the party altogether--ala California.
What is the Republican party now, a dictorship led by Charles Krauthammer and William Kristol?
Enjoy America while you can Weeb, because Bush's vision probably won't do anything for you in the long term, except bankrupt your country and destroy a once great Republican party :huh:

All you do is ***** about the GOP, neo-cons and "Jorge Arbusto".
Are you stating that America will be in a better position under the alternative? Will your pet-peeve be solved in that case? Is your solution to flush America down the toilet to bring it back to it's rightful place in the world?
You've got three candidates and four choices (one is not to vote). Why don't you tell us what you think will happen to our country when we choose each of the four choices.

Pretty much has to happen Weeb. How much more of a beating can American's take at the hands of Bush? Outside of one or 2 ardent Bush fans here at JI, most (like you) admit his best asset is he's not a democrat. Maybe the U.S needs to hit rock-bottom with Kerry or Bush. Imagine if the Democrats really wanted to the win the upcoming election and put Zell Miller foward? Think Bush would be "rigging" primary results in Illinois and acting like lefty Bill Clinton?
Again, who wins, wins........Bush is a lefty, so is Kerry. Only difference is Bush like invading soverign nations with no direct link to 9-11.
[quote][b]You've got three candidates and four choices [/b][/quote]
You've got to be kidding? There is, basically, one choice: Jorge the liberal and Kerry the super liberal......When Buchanan and Nader were forcibly kept out the national debates by arm guards in 2000, you knew the one party system was able to fend of the 1992 Perot attack.
By the way, Weeb, if missed this from another thread, here's what I typed. I wish you would've stuck on the Keyes topic in this thread, instead of subjectively skewing this topic in order to defend the "indefensible" :wacko:
[quote][b]Also, while Bush's little cheerleaders are personaly attacking my opinions in the Alan Keyes thread, instead of responding to theme of the thread, there is very tangible evidence that Bush's liberalisim is destroying the GOP in the great state of Illinois.
By "fixing" the primary process in Illinois and bringing in a total loser like Alan Keyes, he's F'd every true conservitive in that state up the @ss and told them their votes in the states primary meant nothing. Zip.
He's King Jorge and he'll do what the elites tell him do. Let the peons that bothered to vote in Senatorial primary "eat cake", because not voting for the great liberal George or one of his henchmen is a vote for "Kerry" ....How that for class warfare? B) [/b][/quote]
I'm still confused, Riggins, who are you voting for? Or are you not voting?
If you're not voting and you're truly a conservative Republican, that's a vote for kerry.
For once, stop hiding behind complaints and tell us, as a true conservative would, how you, Riggins, plan to solve this problem. The only thing you can do is a citizen is vote -- and not only for the president.
If you want out, that's your choice. Just be a conservative and accept the consequences of your actions (or inactions).
