Re: [Peninsula-Patriots] A question

     Be very careful when contemplating a third party.  Historically third parties have only served to assure victory for the worst of two bad choices. (e.g., Ross Perot).  A third party this election will only serve to guarantee four more years of devastation to our country.  I am very concerned about the "Constitutionalist" or Libertarian parties sucking off enough Republican votes to assure Obummer's re-election.
     Mitt was not my first choice and I do not support everything on the Republican platform, but it would be lunacy not to get every vote out to ensure a Republican victory.  You might gain some personal satisfaction out of a protest vote, but at the expense of ;losing our country.   
     No third party is realistically going to win in any foreseeable future elections, either.  The only workable approach is to transform the Republican Party into a genuinely conservative organization, as was begun in the 2010 election, when Tea Party candidates made up the majority of freshmen House reps, unseating RINOs and made inroads into the Senate.   This must be repeated, and the Tea Party is the engine that will make it happen.  We do not need a third party; we need to refocus the Republican Party on true conservative principles, and we need to do it in November, or we may not get a second chance.

I've not heard mention of the Tea Party in any of their remarks or speeches. I have liked some of the speeches, but I feel I am hearing a lot of fluff and the usual rhetoric. I want more solid substantial items. This is far more than an election, I liken it to a war and you don't win a war with political correctness you win it with guts and cunning.

Subject: [Peninsula-Patriots] A question

I have a question. Has anyone heard any speaker at the convention mention the Tea Party by name. They use the Tea Party yet in their political correctness they dismiss us. I don't know about you but I am tired of it. I have been a lifetime Republican but I will not stand for this much longer. Political correctness is destroying our country and someone needs to be called out.

Please take a look at this:

You have heard it said that silence is golden. But it is not golden when it comes to defending freedom. We must speak out or forever remain silent.
