Why Libertarians Should Vote Republican in November

Why Libertarians Should Vote Republican in November

“For the next six weeks, nothing matters more to the country than Republicans taking a majority in the Senate.”

Now that things are looking good for Republicans in November, victory is within reach.

There are few people who are more capable of getting a rise out of folks on the left and right than Ann Coulter but with the stakes so high, she makes an excellent point in her newest column:

Your ‘To Do’ List To Save America

The most important words printed in The New York Times since “REAGAN EASILY BEATS CARTER” were from a front-page article last Sunday about how, after six years of Obama, the federal judiciary is now dominated by Democratic appointees. Edward Whelan, head of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, responded to this by saying: “The best way for conservative voters to prevent further damage to the courts is to swing the Senate to Republican control in the elections this November.”

He’s absolutely right. Turn that into a mnemonic, sew it on needlepoint pillows, include it in your wedding vows, right-wingers. For the next six weeks, nothing matters more to the country than Republicans taking a majority in the Senate. When it comes to politics, conservatives need to learn one thing from liberals: All that matters is winning.

Coulter goes out of her way to remind readers that certain “independent” and “Libertarian” candidates are running for the sole purpose of taking votes away from Republicans and she closes with this warning:

When we’re all dying from lack of health care across the United States of Mexico, we’ll be deeply impressed with your integrity, libertarians.

Which brings me to my final assignment this week: If you are considering voting for the Libertarian candidate in any Senate election, please send me your name and address so I can track you down and drown you.

Say what you will about Ann but in this case she is absolutely correct.

Libertarians, Conservatives and Republicans can sort out their differences later.

The most important thing we can do now is retire Harry Reid and stop Obama’s agenda.

So let’s see if we can get this straight, Ann Coulter trashed the Tea Party to help get establishment RINOs through primaries and now she is joining Rove in a panic to have us put aside our differences? Sorry, our differences stare us in the face every day as those gutless morons she sided with sit in congress and do nothing to impede Obama’s agenda today.

Ann Coulter and her ilk will be to blame if Republicans don’t take back the Senate. She can’t wash her hands from it now. She’s just as bad as the rest of them.

    We can sort that out later.

    Don’t forget John “Bay-nor”, Mitch McConnell, and a whole host of RINOs not only denigrating Conservatives and Tea Partiers but constantly stating their support for amnesty.

    Yep….Sorted out later….

    To re-use a phrase that was common before the 2012 elections: Let. It. Burn.

      Radegunda in reply to tphillip. | September 20, 2014 at 12:11 pm

      “Let. It. Burn.” — Translation: “Let the country burn, because I’m really annoyed that I didn’t get my way in the primaries. I didn’t get everything I want, so I’ll sulk and let the worse side win. My fellow citizens will suffer more than they needed to, but I’ll feel good about myself.”

        Riiiiiiight. Tea Party supported candidate wins primary and gets NO support from party. No money, no endorsement, no party paid ads. Some have even been opposed in the election by the party.
        Sorry the Party elite have so far lost at least as many elections as those that decide to stay home.

        Se Radegunda, keep insulting people like me and then whine when we don’t show up to vote. Great strategy.

        Here’s a thought: court us like you want our vote, because you do.

      /reposting this just so I can like it again…

    Fight those battles during the primaries.

    If the Democrat-leftists hold onto the Senate, the people to blame are all those who don’t like the Dems but wouldn’t vote for the Republican on the ballot because they imagine that “sending a message” is more important than beating the leftists in whatever way they can, when they can.

    When you let Dems win because you’re unhappy with the Republican on the ballot, the message that’s received is: Voters prefer Democrats; therefore Republicans need to be more “moderate.” And the practical effect, of course, is more entrenched coercive statism.

      You mean like in Mississippi, where RINOs invited in Democrats for the “Republican” primary in violation of MS law?

      It is not our fault your people misjudged the intensity of our commitment to principle.

      I know, I know–but you lose when you stick to principle.

      Well, you lose when you ignore it and you are losing because you dismissed us.

      At some point in the battle between Lucy and Charlie Brown, Lucy needs to realize she is being an asshole and change her behavior.

Another question, why doors Heritage and other conservative minded entities give Ann Couter a platform? Because she’s pretty and isn’t afraid to say something controversial to get a rise out of them? This is a real problem.

Not Ann per se. It’s sad that Heritage and others are so inhibited by their own self important pretense that they keep regurgitating the same inner circle losers year after year. They don’t have the capacity to invite fresh ideas. Either that or they don’t care.

“The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally – not a 20 percent traitor.”

I didn’t agree 100% with Romney, but I sure as hell would want him in the WH today rather than Dear Leader.

    Radegunda in reply to NavyMustang. | September 20, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    Unfortunately, some of the people on this board apparently think it’s better to send a message to someone about how dissatisfied they are, than to use their vote to put the least-unsatisfactory alternative in office. It’s a vain and childish approach to the serious responsibility of elections.

      SmokeVanThorn in reply to Radegunda. | September 20, 2014 at 12:40 pm

      Go lecture Priebus, Rove, Lugar, and all the GOPE types who refused to support and sabotaged conservative Republican primary winners in 2010 and 2012.

      This from the loser. Thank you,

      I want to win and your way is not the way to do it.

      McCain. Lost.
      TeaParty Win congress.
      Romney. Lost.
      GOPe in eminently winnable races chooses to lose rather than suppor tea-party in primaries.

      Its no my fault you suck. Its not my job for the party that hates liberty (that would be the gop, btw)

      Honestly, what part of hell no do you not understand?

      persecutor in reply to Radegunda. | September 20, 2014 at 3:43 pm

      @Radegunda–

      Insanity is doing the same stupid thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. If I vote for a Dem or GOPe, is there really that big a difference, especially since the GOPe has clearly said they openly said they had declared war on us and have on occasion used the same language as the Dems in speaking of us.
      I don’t remember surrendering to them, nor do I remember them surrendering to us– so as far as I’m concerned, the war is still on.
      Unlike the Obongo administration with outside adversaries, if someone says they’re at war with me, I take steps not only to defend myself, I take steps to return fire. I used to contribute, but no more. I used to hold my nose to pull a lever; no more.
      I’m sorry that “no more” disturbs you so, but unlike some voting blocs,my vote can’t be taken for granted or counted as a certainty anymore.

New York City politician Ed Koch (1924-2013) had a saying: “Agree with me on 9 of 12 issues, vote for me. Agree with me on 12 of 12 issues, see a psychiatrist.”

Ann lost me with her pushing of the only candidate that could win: Mitt Romney.

The Republican Party establishment must be confronted. Their conduct when in power does not earn them the loyalty Ann and The Architect are asking to receive. In the end Washington will not fix itself. I am for it getting worse. When it does, then there will be an opportunity for an Article V movement to eliminate some of the DC power. For me, I’m with Mark Levin on this. Ann has shown her to be flat out wrong on many issues and in the end an establishment status quo supporter.

Uhhh…Republicans need to vote for the conservative candidate if they want a conservatives in that Senate seat. Most still calling themselves republicans are liberals or too stupid to think however. Our government is a lost cause. Up your carry caliber. We’ll have to sort it all out later.

I’m sorry, but now I’m once again being asked to “go along to get along”by the same people who labeled me a “terrorist”? By the same people who want my vote but after the election plan to pass immigration amnesty? By the same people who are more interested in perpetuating their place at the public trough than passing real tax and entitlement reform? By the same people who, if they should find themselves in charge of the Senate, will vote for whomever Obongo nominates to the courts under the theory that since he won he’s entitled to his choices?

Nope. I’ll sit this one out, thank you. The results will be pretty much the same, give or take a few trillion dollars, and the White House won’t be able to pin it totally on the GOP if they don’t take the Senate.

Let the Chamber of Commerce fill Rove’s coffers and let Christie Creme’s candidacy once again curl Ann’s toes.

Tillis, the Senatorial candidate in NC won’t even use the letter “R” or the word “Republican” in his TV ads. Yet he says he is conservative with a straight face. I have not for one minute thought the GOP was going to take the Senate in 2014 and I still do not believe that. Polls are meaningless. Rove and his followers have done a very good job dividing the party. Democrats don’t give a damn who’s running as long as there is a “D” after their name. Independents will vote for the person who is being touted by the MSM so we know where their vote will go. The bottom line is there are two types of voters – those with principles and those without. Those without will win.

Why would I give my money or my vote to a group that seems to believe that if I don’t agree with them 100% of the time I’m a wacko bird, a terrorist, a stupid mouth breather, etc…

I’ll vote for the Conservative candidate I like and I’m not seeing many that meet my standards. I voted for Romney to try and slow the decline, not stop, slow. Romney was never going to try and stop the dissolution of the US, but he wouldn’t have gone full bore enthusiastic like zero. That got me more zero.

Eff them and the horse they rode in on. I’ve no use for any of them.

    Absolutely correct—many of us here were pilloried for not salivating in public over Mitt; but we sucked it up, gave a few dollars, and watched the “consultant class” mismanage the campaign after the first debate into oblivion. We supported him not because we thought he was the best, but would to some extent slow the downward slide into mediocrity.

    Now we are once again being exhorted into getting on board, yada, yada, yada, and by the same people who did it to us in 2012. I lost whatever respect I had for Coulter back then and she hasn’t done a freakin’ thing to change that, I’m sorry to say.

    And Hobbits.

    furthermore, they did not realize the term is a compliment. I mean how freaking stupid and out of touch do you have to be to consider the word ‘Hobbit’ to be insulting?

not sure I will vote anymore. house could have defunded obamacare the first day of 2011. they didn’t.

thinking I may instead start planning for/laying groundwork for the political backlash from when it all fails.

    Many people have been doing that for many years. Prayer too.

    Disruption is coming and we will have work to do rebuilding our Republic.

    The clowns running D.C. are too small in heart, mind and soul for the can of whoop-ass about to be unleashed.

    good luck.

Sorry, so done with that lesser of the evils thing. Fire Rove and send the RINOs back to the dems and then we’ll talk. Until then GOP, get over yourselves. You have damaged the country by not standing up to the commie dems.

Maybe mostly Republican: but voting for the Democrat to get rid of Boehner sends a message to the GOPe and maybe produces a better-working House at effectively no cost.

Its the Establishment Party (E).

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

The GOP can go pound sand.

Here’s an easy way to get people like me on board:

SECURE THE BORDER

You promised up twice and broke that promise twice. Not falling for that again Lucy.

And quit tying it to immigration reform. You act like we can’t do one without the other. Bullshit. Secure the border and THEN we can talk about amnesty all you want.

Ann Coulter is about as appropriate for delivering this message as is the extorted Squeaker Boehner.

Speaking of the Squeaker: does everyone realize that by throwing our support behind the GOP, we might get a majority, but one that is lead by Squeaker Boehner and Turtle McConnell? What will change?
