GOP, Take a Good Hard Look Across the Ocean at Your Future

The Republican Party would do well to take a long hard look at what the UKIP is doing to the Tories.  In local elections, the UKIP has gone from ZERO to 74 seats and counting.  The Tories have lost well over 100 seats.

This is what can happen when a “Conservative” Party betrays actual Conservatives to the point of fed up anger.

Republicans, be warned.  And if you think there are not millions close to going 3rd Party, think again. 

This past Republican official is one of them.

If the Republican Party takes up the banner of freedom, of the Constitution, and of opposition to handing our country over to Big Government, to looters and to those who don’t even belong here, it may have a promising future. 

But if the Republican Party drops the banner out of cowardice or moral bankruptcy, someone else will take it up.  And, as is the case with the UKIP, that could happen faster than anyone imagines.

I cannot keep myself from snarking over the South Shields results, where the Lib Dems just barely managed to beat . . . The Monster Raving Loony Party. And the UKIP doubled the Tory count.

Third parties have such a poor history that it is hard to imagine a viable one in time to do more than pick up the wreckage. Or pick through the wreckage. Better to fix the GOP; perhaps not possible, but the odds are much better that way.

Oh I agree that working through the GOP is the way to go for now at least. It is not as far gone as the "Conservative" Party in the UK.

But my patience is wearing thin.

BTW, the UKIP has won 110 seats now. That's ZERO to 110. Wow.
