A Sad day for Me: Mark Levin Joins the Ranks of the Sadly Mistaken

The conservative pundit I most respect, admire and identify with has just made the same mistake that all the rest of them are making (or he’s actively working to prevent people from saving this nation — it’s one of the two). Mark Levin is right about the TEA Party but wrong about what we need to do:

Mark Levin: Tea Party Only Thing That Stands ‘Between Liberty And Tyranny’

Conservative scholar, talk radio host, and former Reagan administration official Mark Levin said conservatives need to first overthrow the Republican establishment to more successfully take on President Barack Obama and the institutional left.

Why do we “have to overthrow the Republican leadership?”  We’ve been hearing and trying that since Reagan: where has it gotten us?  DEFEATED, that’s where!  Mark, I love you — really I do — BUT YOU ARE WRONG!  So wrong that I have started to wonder whether you, Hannity and Limbaugh are the Republican Party’s Jessie Jackson: intentionally keeping us on the party reservation.

Look, this is simple: it is easier to build a new Party than to defeat existing leadership that is already entrenched and in control of the Party.

There’s another reason Levin is wrong, wrong, WRONG!  The TEA Party is the solution, but stats show that nearly 1/3 of the TEA Party is made up of….DEMOCRATS!  They are NOT going to join the Republican Party to help overthrow the Republican leadership.  There are quite a few Libertarians and independents in the TEA Party, too, and the same goes for them.  No, if you want their help, YOU NEED A NEW PARTY!

Anything else is just stuck on stupid.

    • OK, Joe, I’ll get right on it.

      There, DONE! I just created the “Independent Party” for you. Now you can join with me and do this the way Washington and the rest of the founders intended it to be done…

      …or you can keep voting for the Party that is telling you that you have to start giving away candy and raising taxes and allowing amnesty and, Oh yeah, stop complaining about everyone else — including me. After all, you’re leaders are telling you that’s divisive. :-)

  1. It does appear the Republican Leadership has been deaf and dumb. If they can’t do better than this they all need to be given their walking papers. They had two chances to beat obama and blew it, why give any of them another chance? It is going to take 50 years to return this country to a Constitutional Republic if that will even be possible.

  2. I always vote republican. I have always registered ‘decline to state’. I’ve been tea party since the Santelli rant. Here’s my point of view. The desired end condition of smaller government overall and a smaller federal government in particular will naturally increase the relative influence of local, county, and state governments. Those levels is where we need to be now and later. We, the tea party, are growing from the grass roots. That is where the locus of strength needs to be in the end. Doesn’t it make sense for us to focus on that and grow steadily from the ground up? Our guys will rise through the ranks in time. I’d like to control congress and senate now but I think we need to be solid at lower levels when we do. My notion would be to run on our own brand for grass roots offices: local and county. I’d run in republican primaries for national offices but co-branded as ‘tea party’ or whatever the brand name will be. I’d play it by ear in regard to state offices. Maybe run as tea party only, maybe run co-branded as republican. I have a hunch that it won’t pay us to leave the Republican party until we can win statewide offices under our own brand. I look at it like years ago when Datsun became Nissan. They cars were labeled both ways for awhile.

      I agree with Jeffrey. TEA Party candidates can have the luxury of running as third party or as a Republican caucus. You really can’t ask for much better than that.

      And yes, starting small, as in, county commission level, useful positions, anyway, because from there you can, say, reject federal funds with strings attached. Once you start developing majorities at the local level, state seats come naturally, and national follows from that. That’s generally the way it works.

      Shooting the moon in national politics without a strong grassroots base is, well, irresponsible. It’s like complaining you can’t be a doctor before you have even gone to school for it.

      The Action Plan: Start recruiting candidates for local seats.

    • Jeff,

      Do you think we have that much time left? I don’t — but I hope I am wrong.

      Also, how do you know when you can win State elections under your own brand if you just stay with the old one? No one will even know you have a different brand. And I’m not sure but the Datsun/Nissan analogy may not hold because it was a “re-branding,” not a split. No one had a choice after the final switch — Datsun BECAME Nissan.

      What do you think???

  3. Joe…. All you’ve been doing is Whinin’, Cryin’, and Bitchin’ A Fit. Some BS flippant answer is NOT forming a 3rd party. Really get one together or stop.

    You got a year…. if you don’t have one by then then you don’t realistically have the ability to do what you have been gripin’ about for…. well for so long it’s become quite tiresome.

    So put up or shut up. Let us dummies all know the head of your party and the national campaign HQ and who is in charge of the marketing and funding for your nationwide push to the front of the national political scene.

    And I’M telling you to put up…you bitch about the lack of results…. SHOW ME YOUR RESULTS. Yeah I’m quite tired of your nonsense.

    Let us see your mythical 3rd party that is going to save us from the tyranny that is the 2 party system in America.

    I might start believing you when I see someone from YOUR party on a ballot being elected to anything.

    Then I might accept that you are actually doing something other than talking out your arse. Thanks

    • HD,

      Fair enough. But then, conservatives/TEA Party people have been trying it your way for more than three decades and what has it gotten them? A steady march toward the Left and a constant drone from people like you claiming all we have to do is keep at it.

      Seems to me you are actually working for the people you pretend to oppose. Hard for me or anyone else to form a third Party when we can’t even get you — our purported natural allies — to admit this is the case.

      • And Joe it’s hard for anyone to get behind your initiative when you’ve show absolutely no progress to the formation of anything resembling something other than folks screaming from their collective front porch. :-P

        • Funny, I thought the TEA Party was doing very well in this respect…until it joined forces with the Republicans, that is. Once that happened: well, like Boehner said — they were told to “Get in line.”

          • So …. tell us ….. just who’s the big honcho for the tea party? really who is in charge of the Tea Party? That’s right…. NO ONE…. why…. the tea party is an EVENT not a political party.

  4. “INDEPENDENT PARTY” is an awful and poor, non-descriptive name/term.

    The name MUST lead people to the ACCURATE DESCRIPTION of what this NEW PARTY STANDS FOR.
    Exactly the opposite of the “DEMOCRATS” AND REPUBLICANS with the use of LIBERAL AND CONSERVATIVE, where BOTH terms are LIES and Misleading on their face and BY DESIGN.

    The new name must lead people, if they are curious, to investigate WHO, WHAT, and WHY this new party exists…. AND be the first “IDEAL” of truth against ALL the LIES the DECEIVERS will cast at her.

    So pick Locke, Jefferson, Natural Law, individual freedom, liberty, etc. ….

    IF the supporters of the opponents do ever become curious on their own:
    THEN the “new name” MUST be the “first shot heard round the world” that leads people to “American Truth”, as inspired by Natural Law and G-d’s Truth.

  5. Here how about this one “The BOHICA Party” I’m going to stay low for now because this circular firing squad crap is too much…. Need ice cream. Yummmmy ice cream. Hey there ya go….. “The Ice Cream Party” ;-)
