Ben Sasse: I Routinely Consider Leaving the GOP

Sitting Senator.

He can be replaced pretty easily.


Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said on Twitter Saturday he's thought about leaving the Republican Party.

The tweet, a response to another Twitter user who claimed to have switched their affiliation from the Democratic Party to "no party" to be "part of the solution," was short.

"yep regularly consider it," the tweet from the Nebraska senator reads. "(except the 'from Dem' part)."

Super-Conservative David French decided he wouldn't be out-cucked and announced he's already out of the GOP:



I know a lot of actual conservatives used to say that, and would be berated as quislings by the French types.

I remember these types got pretty steamed when some of us said we'd go third party rather than vote for the Democrat Mario Rubio.

22 Sasse is signalling pretty loudly that he's decided to be a one-term Senator. He'll go for the bucks and work for some big agribusiness company as a lobbyist, or actually since he's Warren Buffet's personal envoy to the US Govm't, maybe he'll just move straight into Berkshire Hathaway.

35 Remember, Ben Sasse is a standup Republican, nearly a True American in his loyalty. It's not like his every public utterance is a subtle or overt shot at a President who did more in 2 years than Sasse could do in 20. And Sasse's fellow hero, John "Hanoi" McCain backstabbed the party over Obamacare. No doubt Sasse was heartbroken.

36 Even funnier is how Trump has exposed how a lot of people with an R after their name are not conservative.
Or Christian.
Or share our values.
And they damned sure don't share our political goals.

Tell me again why I should vote for your version of the GOP, the old version circa 1988 to 2016?

Exactly. Politicians are chameleons. What values they pretend to profess are almost entirely for show. Electing someone to be your moral exemplar is like expecting to find a unicorn.

The policies they promise, and whether they keep those policies, are everything.

With all the hits that's gonna get, I wonder if they'll raise the price from $2.99, thinking that's about to become a best-seller:

Ethan. Maybe Ethan is the name of the NY Times mole

---------------------------------------------

Ethan reserves a remote cabin in the woods for himself and his lovely wife, Sophia, as a late honeymoon. Their picturesque hike to the cabin is interrupted by a trail clearing crew that brushes past them while leering at Sophia and snapping Ethan in the face with a branch. When Ethan and Sophia reach the cabin after a hot, long hike they find that the trail clearing crew has settled into their reserved cabin uninvited for the night.

Ethan is disappointed and tries to make the best of the situation but Sophia decides that all three members of the crew are to her liking and leaves Ethan tied up and humiliated in a corner while the crew uses and enjoys her.

109 It's a new party now.

The ideology of "Compassionate Conservatism" *spit* is dead. More accurately, exposed for the globalist bullshit fraud it always was. But that is the ideology of buffoons like French and lil' Sassy. The new ideology establishing itself on "The Right" is simply one of normality, adulthood, and national pride, laughing in the face of the last dying gasps of Collectivism as it gradually burns itself out in a supernova of inanity.

So good riddance.

112 Does it amaze anyone else how Democrats are always obsessed and worked up over shit that happened centuries or even millennia ago?

They're very selective about it.

for example, Slavery never goes out of style, white people are forever guilty of what their great-great grandfathers might have done.

But the Democrat Party being the originator of Jim Crow up to 50 years ago is completely old news and should be forgotten.

Meanwhile, the Crusades, which were over with 600 years ago: totally relevant today

But Nazis, 70 years ago you cannot blame the Germans for.

Yet every white male today, 98 years later, is to blame for not giving women the vote until 1920.

But you cannot blame the Democrats for being the party of the Klan 40 years ago.

It definitely exists and it is liberal although I think it's more a jealousy thing and they want to do what the cool kidz are doing in the bigger cities. There's always a rah rah attitude about anything that goes on here. The local news stations are basically cheerleaders for anything that promotes our city while downplaying the negatives (like the crime rate which is pretty high considering the size of the city it's because vibrants).

As far as Sasse goes I doubt he'll run again after this little stunt. While he's aping the city high society, the rest of the state is not going to vote again for this jagoff.

Basically we got Flaked. He got elected before the realignment so what are you going to do? Getting rid of him quickly is about the only thing outside of armed revolution.

If you vote for ANY Democrat in a national election, you are voting someone who will caucus with the Democrats and always vote 100% with the Democrat party line, since they do not allow defectors ever, on any vote.

So, then, what is there to "evaluate"? If you actually are "a Christian and a conservative," and there is a party that is aggressively and actively trying to utter destroy and then legally abolish conservatism and Christianity, why in the universe would you actually consider voting for them?

It shows that they believe in collective guilt, and by extension, collective punishment (which is against the Geneva Conventions).

It's a core tenet of Western law that the sins of the father fall not on the son. In their desire to abolish Western civilization, and their construction of the oppositional postmodern worldview, they have embraced the opposite. They now believe that you share guilt for the misdeeds of everyone who ever had the same skin color. Unless you're a member of a victim class, of course.

It's actually worse than that in it's quickly becoming a racial party as well. Soon there will be no room at all for White people in the Democrat party. A few cuck losers who like the masochism of hanging around might last a bit longer, but they're making it clear that White people are their enemy and that the old guard leadership needs to go.

Also they're acting like Maoist Red Guards and they don't even have total control (none at all now outside of The Megaphone and cultural stuff which isn't nothing). What you support and speak out in favor of today could very well be toxic wrong speak tomorrow and you'll be purged.

These are not smart people. The smart move would've been to keep the genocidal rhetoric quiet until you had a clear majority a few decades down the road. They just couldn't contain themselves, though! (Thank God for it too).

Back when the Soviets were still masterminding the slow creep of communism, they kept a tight lid on a lot of the more radical nonsense.

They were subtle, patient, long-term thinkers. When the USSR fell, the useful idiots took over, and have been running to the far left ever since. They are not pragmatists, or bound by any sort of reason, they are dogmatic zealots.

That zeal has lead them to push too hard, too fast, and is derailing the Master Plan at the bottom of the 11th hour.

248 You know, someone like me, who doesn't have any political power, can say "I'm done with the Republican Party," and it means one thing. Whether it's personality or policy, it's an expression of a frustration with a Party that has not done what it claimed it would do. It's an effort to wrest some of that power back from the people who think they don't answer to people like me.


When a politician or a prominent member of the Media Industrial Complex says it, they are doing something else. Whether they are trying to defeat some faction, or destroy it, the effect is the same. The enemy wins.

255 I was thinking this morning that I cannot even begin to count the number of times I was told over the years that the GOP is owed my vote.

The GOP was owed my vote for Dole and you shut your mouth over concerns he isn't even trying to win.

The GOP was owed my vote for W and you shut your mouth about the whole dynasty thing.

The GOP was owed my vote for McCain and you shut your mouth about how the only people he really fights are Republicans.

The GOP was owed my vote for Romney and you shut your mouth that he was, at best, a very squishy Republican and you really shut your mouth about how he seems to have no true political beliefs but will say whatever he thinks he needs to say to win right now.

My vote was *owed* and when I pointed out that hell to the no it was not, I was called a child, and mocked for not understanding how American politics works, and we only have two parties, and if you do not vote GOP your non-vote is actually two votes for a Democrat since not only does the GOP not get your vote, but you didn't cancel out a Dem vote as well.

That went on for decades.

The very second the shoes was on the other foot? MUH SACRED PRINCIPLES! VOTE DEMOCRAT TO TEACH THE GOP A LESSON! *wankwankwank*

I will repeat my nearly entirely baseless slur on David French. Note how he starts out with Christian. It is absolutely my experience that the more someone tells me how Christian and righteous they are, the more likely it is that they, well, aren't.

263 Back when the Soviets were still masterminding the slow creep of communism, they kept a tight lid on a lot of the more radical nonsense.

They were subtle, patient, long-term thinkers. When the USSR fell, the useful idiots took over, and have been running to the far left ever since. They are not pragmatists, or bound by any sort of reason, they are dogmatic zealots.

That zeal has lead them to push too hard, too fast, and is derailing the Master Plan at the bottom of the 11th hour.

We should be thankful that we are dealing with these reckless fools, and not their original handlers.

Posted by: rammajamma at September 10, 2018 01:21 PM (AjNMO)

Lyrically, "Silly Love Songs" self-mocks itself. So that means it's not meant to be taken seriously. It also boasts a great bass line that jumped out of car speakers back in the '70's. It's a great "record"--if not great "song"--and Paul was probably the greatest rock bassist not named John Entwistle.

268 To summarize:

Paul McCarthy was a musical genius, who between 1962 and 1970 proved he was among the greatest songwriters of all time.

Then in the '70s he sort of became self-indulgent for a while and still wrote a few great songs, but mostly a bunch of uninspired or ridiculous songs, seemingly scraping the bottom of the barrel of his creativity.

From the '80s onward he has basically been a "nostalgia act," playing all his classics for his fans.

Most artists go through a self-indulgent phase and no one can consistently make a masterpiece every time. So, overall, McCarthy still ranks as a genius and one of history's greatest songwriters.

BTW, if you look at the full catalog of people like Irving Berlin and Jerome Kern and Cole Porter, deemed the greatest songwriters ever, they also wrote hundreds of stinkers, in addition to the numerous classics. It's comes with the territory of being a songwriter -- it's impossible to only ever write great songs and never any flops.

A true Christian should be more focused on their savior and their sinful nature thus needing a savior than they are their status. People who brag about or brand themselves as Christians (as Patrick from Ohio notes, above) are not concerned about these things, which gives rise to skepticism.

They have lost there influence, and they are losing their livelihoods because over the years they have talked a good game then when it came time to be counted, took a ride with John Kasich, Yeb and that tiny hands snake oil salesman, Marco.

IIRC, there were even a lot of otherwise old line "New Deal" and "Great Society" Democrats who were horrified at the "New Left" Commiecrats taking control of their party.

The New Dealers and Great Society types were horribly wrong about the benevolence of the Nanny State, but they did not out and out hate the country.

Yes, there are many hymns with absolutely beautiful music, but being pretty isn't what makes it a hymn. He's defining hymn as "a pretty song" which is ridiculous.

I think we're looking at generations of people who were raised around praise songs their whole life, and haven't actually heard a lot of actual HYMNS. So they just think the definition is "older praise song"

And since "praise choruses" were just somewhat religious sounding lyrics or the happy portions of psalms tacked on to popular music, they translate "old popular music" into "hymn" in their brain.

374 I know a lot of actual conservatives used to say that, and would be berated as quislings by the French types.

In all honesty, I cannot remember David French ever writing something like that. Many others at NRO, sure, but as I recall my objections to French lay elsewhere. He's a Pharisee; his religious ideas are confused*; and he is actually far too combative, to an unreasonable degree. I recall his attacking conservative professors for not "coming out"; he thought they were cowards. You see, they would merely be risking their careers, and their families' future, over a job. Unlike French, a lawyer, a profession which is of course exactly as endangered as an academic's. Even before David started sucking liberal cock.

But I don't remember him attacking people for being too pure on squishy conservatives. (I do remember his arguing that Evangelicals could too vote for Romney, but that's another matter. After all, I argued the same for Catholics.)

-750 people showing up to the second coming in Illinois?
-The economy is going too good for the Reps not to at least hold their own in the house.
-Trump has nailed down the white working class.
-Trump is getting record approval from blacks and soon with Hispanics. A 30 % increase over African American support for GOP would probably lead to gains in the house.
-Trump has a lot of good news to come out on FISA, McCabe, et al.
-Trump will soon nail down new NA agreement.
-Nork is going well.
-The new socialist face of Dem party will energize 10 % of their base and send another 15 % running for the exists.
-Kavanaugh confirmation will be very demoralizing for the Dem base.
-Kavanaugh hearing lack of decorum will have negative impacton normal people support for Dems.
-Anti-Israel Dem attitudes and Trump moving embassy to Jerusalem will get Jewish support up for repubs, not as much as it should be remember a two point swing is 4 %.

And yet, as a solo performer, he had two of the best post-Beatles songs, It Don't Come Easy and Photograph. And while it is true that Harrison co-wrote Photograph and produced both songs, I prefer those two to most of what Lennon and McCartney wrote post-Beatles.

They might not again, but listen to his bit in the Kavanaugh hearings and tell me you disagree with anything he says. He's super pro-life, he's very strong on the US constitution, he's big on small government.

He's just neverTrump, which means he keeps bashing into self contradictions and conflicts. He's really solid except when it comes to President Trump, who he opposes for being a moral reprobate and a scumbag in the past. And I get that -- I have serious problems with what President Trump did in the past too.

In the past.

But unlike President Clinton, he stopped at a certain point and straightened up his life, by all evidence, which means its kind of unChristian and hypocritical to keep opposing the man based on what he once did.

I mean that kind of attitude would reject the Apostles Paul of Tarsus and Peter, for crying out loud. Its exactly what Augustine argued against when he said that Christians are about forgiveness and recognition that we all stand equally condemned before God.

Sasse needs a good sit down with a pastor to get his head straight on this.

Posted by: BignJames at September 10, 2018 01:59 PM (0+nbW)
--------------------------------

I've always liked Ringo's ability to seemingly get along with everybody - maybe that has something to do with being in charge of keeping everyone in time - but I heard an interview that was conducted with John Lennon at some point when he was reviving his career (right before he was murdered).

Lennon was asked if Ringo was the best drummer in the world, and he replied that Ringo wasn't even the best drummer in the Beatles.

I'm NOT a drummer so not making any judgments here, just sayin.....

Used to think so, but I submit one Timothy B. Schmitt. He joined the Eagles for their FINAL album, for which he contributed ONE song (okay, it was the best song on the album, "I Can't Tell You Why.")
Since then, he's been part of every one of their super -lucrative "reunion" tours.....


He was already fairly successful in Poco, then he and Randy Meisner swapped bands again.

True.


Looking at their Presidential voting history they vote Republican the overwhelming majority of the time, except when a true progressive is on the ballot..


They have backed the following Presidents

Wilson, FDR and LBJ.


They also backed William Jennings Bryant who was a Nebraska native so I'll give them a mulligan for that.


So that is a little insight.

He talks a great game when he is talking about conservatism. But he has not yet walked the walk. He's not Cruz, who at least tried to gut Obamacare. And he's not Rubio - who joined a bi-partisan gang.

Sasse is just a talker. I'm sort of ok with it - hard to stand out in the Senate. But you don't have to actively work against your President. If he were in MA - that would be one thing.

Again, I'd rate him a net positive for now. A self-righteous net positive, but a plus nonetheless.

The interesting flip side of this coin is the Saudis deciding they'd better reduce their reliance on Western grain. So they began irrigating fields in the desert for agriculture using their natural aquifers. The crops were unsustainable, the aquifers were significantly depleted, and now they suffer a fresh water shortage.

All of that to say that the Saudis are not intelligent.

John and Paul may have been two of the best songwriters but Ringo was probably one of the best pocket drummers ever and responsible for some of the most iconic drum hooks ever.

There are many Beatles songs that you can identify just by hearing the isolated drums.


Never ostentatious, no solos, always playing appropriately for the song.

Then 'oxygenated' fuels were embraced as a way to lie to older cars to run leaner and supposedly reduce emissions.

The reality is that by the time everyone jumped on that train 97% of the vehicles on the road already had the ability to adjust their fuel-air mixtures and so all oxygenated fuels really did was to knock 5-10% off gas mileage.

Further, the oxygenate embraced by most refiners - MTBE - less damaging to many elastomers than alcohols, and comparatively cheap - proved to be an incredibly persistent groundwater contaminant.

Going back to the twitter twat who dreams of Barron growing up to become a gay moonbat, why is it that leftist politicians almost never have kids that go right politically but rightish politicos often have kids that go left/ish?

[ ] The brilliance of leftism compels them.
[ ] Rightish peeps are more tolerant of kids' dissent.
[ ] The kids are raised in the upper class and adopt those values.
[ ] Other.

John Lennon was a supercilious, arrogant piece of work.... with a lousy taste in women....


Any normal man would've run away screaming from Yoko Ono. She's a no-talent hack of a control-freak of an "artiste" who latched onto the underside of the weakling Lennon like a remora and destroyed the Beatles by disrupting their comradery because she couldn't leave Lennon alone for one minute of "guy time."

You miss the point.

If Marco Rubio had not been petulant after Trump's win, I would not be angry with him.

But it's funny, when someone not so conservative or even RINO wins the primary, I am told to suck it up by them because s/he's still better than the Commiecrat.

But is their any reciprocity on their part when someone they did not prefer wins the primary? NEVER. Then they are lauded as "principled mavericks" for dissenting.

497 Regarding Lennon, the best takedown by far is the National Lampoon's Radio Dinner--Genius is Pain. Hysterical rendition in music of Lennon's Yoko period and more or less his own words in a Rolling Stone interview.

Track's called Magical Misery Tour, from National Lampoon's Radio Dinner. The whole thing is spectacularly good, and some of it the kind of politically incorrect that'd get you banned from every social platform.

Magical Misery Tour is up on youtube, as is teenyrap and most of the rest, but they're quietly taking down every post of 'Pull the Tregroes' that shows up.

502 Lets put it this way, if Ringo Starr had been in any other band, nobody on earth would be singing his praises. He was barely able to play and could not keep time. Even he admitted he was terrible, although he got better with time. Any greatness he managed to play was almost certainly McCartney giving him ideas. I mean, he seems like a great guy but talk about emperor's new clothes.

That pretty much sums up the difference between John and Paul.
And Paul NEVER stopped working--even after Linda died, Lennon had done nothing in the five years leading up to his death--until the last coupe of months.

This is a great sign of genuine principles and integrity from a politician - something we never saw from the now-decomposing Juan McSwine.
So does the current Governor of Florida appoint a replacement until a special election can vote in a permanent one? I don't think there is enough time for any sort of primary prior to the general election in Nov. When will the special election happen?

514 I no longer consider myself a Republican

I said that when the GOP foisted John McCain on us as the nominee. And I was attacked mercilessly for saying I would never vote for that turd because "Hey, eat this shit sandwich because we say so". I did end up-reluctantly-pulling the lever for the GOP that year because

1) Palin
2) The fucking attack on Joe the plumber, a guy whose only sin was asking Barry a question that he answered honestly and therefore badly.

I still felt like crap about it though. And I will continue to say that as horrific as TFG was, I consider it a net positive that John f*cking McCain never became president.

So for multiple consecutive elections I was told I must vote for the GOP candidate, no matter how awful he/she was. This remained true until 2016, at which point all of the asshats exclaimed "Oh, it's different this time because we really don't like the guy." Hahaha no, fuck you.

So I remain not a Republican, which is where French and I agree, but I will be damned if I'll vote for the Democrats to "send a message".

Them
------
The last 30 years until 2016: You MUST vote GOP, always, no matter how bad the candidate is.
2016-present: You cannot vote for Trump because we think he's a singularly bad candidate.

519 Slightly off topic: The Economist has decided that conservatives in the United States MUST be FORCED by any means necessary to SHUT UP. To wit: they whined in the latest issue that I read that the exit of AZ's two senators (The Economist takes the e.e. cummings approach to capitalization) is terrible for the republican party AND the country. Meaning: The Economist wants Americans to be forced to pick between to Leftist parties at the polls.

Their American political coverage is sickening to be generous. No wonder I let the subscription to them lapse last year.
