The Three Amigos of GOP Defeat in 2016

The people who run the Republican party are interested only in electing one of their own, or someone they can control. They would rather have Democrats in power, than Republicans who endanger their control of the party and its money. The "establishment" is in business for itself; nothing (including winning elections) comes before preserving itself in power.
The courts have generally ignored the Constitution for the last hundred years, when it conflicted with their political outlook. They trashed the Constitution and affirmed the legality of ACA the last time it was before them; why should we expect anything different this time?

This is all insane. Many people tend to grab and slap each other about in the course of a heated argument; it's not cause for any legal intervention, unless there is serious injury and/or complaint. The law depriving a citizen of the right to own arms over "domestic violence" is unconstitutional.

The right side must defeat its enemies in order to win. Winning means nothing, unless the right people are in charge.
Ignorant politicians, guided by even more ignorant "trained economists" (who've been trained in theories that don't, won't and can't work), are destroying prosperity in nearly every country. "Stimulus" stimulates nothing but inflation, misallocation of resources and growth of government; it delays the crash that is necessary to reorganize things in a more workable way, and will make the crash much more severe, when it comes. Economies (and most other things) are self-regulating, if left alone. It's necessary for the bottom to drop out when things are moving in the wrong direction, so that a restructuring can occur; the misguided governments of Japan have been trying to prevent this for many years, and are going to have quite a blow-up when it finally comes. The same can be said of the US.

Dear GOP: Show, Don't Tell

For 90% of these candidates it is a game. They believe very little of what they say, and are only trying to "position" themselves. They're in the game for power and money, and to serve the moneyed interests who own the leaderships of both parties. When the real deal comes along, he doesn't have to explain it, or fake it.
Coburn has probably done more good things, than bad, during his time in the Senate, but he's a damn poor judge of people, if he can love Obama.
If the Republican leadership, and the donors who own them, succeed in imposing another of their own (Bush, Romney, Christie, McCain, etc.) as the presidential candidate, conservative voters will desert the party in droves. Up to now, conservative voters have supported Republican candidates who act in direct opposition to their interests and preferences (either out of ignorance of what they're really doing, or fear of even worse Democrats); this is not going to continue. If there isn't a change of leadership and policy (to represent their voters, rather than sell government to maintain themselves in power), there will soon be no party; no amount of campaign money will buy back voters who distrust and despise them.

A Republican Alternative to Obamacare

Anthony305 Wrote: Dec 14, 2014 2:08 PM
The Republicans can't repeal anything; Obama would veto it, and they can't get two-thirds of both houses to pass anything against his will. If they are ever in a position to do anything (with a different president), they need to obliterate it all. The problems with the health-care system before Obamacare were mostly due to previous meddling by the federal and state governments with the medical and insurance industries; undoing this is what comes after Obamacare.
