Yep - just as I feared.

The Mississippi Republican voters overwhelmingly voted to replace ancient liberal Republican Thad Cochren with a conservative newcomer, Chris McDaniel who happens to be a supporter of the Constitution, limited government and free markets.

Unfortunately, an 7-8% win turned into a 1% loss because 35,000 black Democrats flooded the polls to prevent McDaniel from winning by voting in a REPUBLICAN primary. How crazy is THAT?

Why? because the Republican D.C. establishment conspired with Democrats to game the system and run ads suggesting McDaniel is a racist lying Tea Party scoundrel who hates our first black president and wants to cut food stamps, entitlements, monies to black universities, and more.

DESPICABLE! Not to mention the "robo-calls" warning about stopping the lying racist Tea Party candidate.

These people, like their Democrat pals, are more concerned with holding onto power than doing what is right for this country. They would rather see a Democrat hack win (like Terry McAullife in virginia) than allow a fellow Republican to win who might create problems by not always providing the leadership with a rubber stamp.

Now you know why we call them RINO's - and why this country, under Democrat rule, with the aid of the liberal media and no effective Republican opposition, is going into the toilet at record speed.

Satan must be laughing with delight.

Abraham Lincoln must be spinning in his grave.

Meanwhile, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Haley Barbour and Karl Rove are partying like crazy. Cochren? The man can barely function - which is why they're so desperate to have him win in November. He does what they want him to.

Well, at least more people now know who these people are with clarity, and what we're up against. I've known for years. I saw what they did to Reagan in the 70's and 80's.

Pfft. Abraham Lincoln was no conservative, by the standards of his own day. He certainly wasn't shy about exceeding the bounds of his Constitutional authority either.

Ronald Reagan was the exceptional, atypical Republican. (Him and a few similar people like Barry Goldwater.) It has taken them thirty years but the GOP is finally on the verge of exorcising his influence from their ranks.

Let me educate you - although I suspect you actually know the truth:

The Republican Party was born of the anti-slavery movement. It was the Democrat Party that was anti-black until LBJ figured out he could corral their vote for 200 years by supporting Republican-supported Civil Rights.

Some would say the Democrat Party STILL holds blacks on their plantation to serve their whims and satisfy their lust for power.

How old were you when Reagan first ran in 1976 & 1980 when the Republican establishment trashed him too - including the likes of Karl Rove and Mitch McConnell?

Your glib assessment and dismissal of Reagan seem to have been hatched through the blathering of ideologues and malcontents, spinmeisters, propagandists and revisionists rather than a first-hand objective understanding of him and the times.

Exorcise Reagan's influence? They might as well exorcise the influence of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the concept of self-government and the love of liberty.

The RINO establishment of today has ZERO principles, are basically big-government Rockefeller-type crony capitalist/corporatists and Reagan (and Lincoln) would be disgusted at their hatred for the base - which is basically traditional hard-working middle America.

Even JFK (a conservative or classical liberal by any standards) would be disgusted - by the Republicans (who want to become Democrat Lite) AND the Democrats who have lurched so radically to the left.

My overarching point is that Jeffersonian classical liberalism, which is basically what the Tea Parties represent, has never been particularly welcome in the Republican Party.

Yes, at its inception, the party was anti-slavery. However, the means by which Lincoln pursued the goal of ending slavery -- a goal frankly ancillary to the goal of preserving the Union, which had a lot to do with the tariffs the feds were collecting from the Southern States -- were clear abuses of power. (The Supreme Court told Lincoln so and he ignored them and did it anyway.) So, the Constitution be damned if it gets in the way of either a Yankee idealistic crusade, or of government patronage of big business. That's not the Tea Party way. But it is the Republican way, and it always has been. There weren't a lot of classical liberals or social conservatives invited. The main reason Lincoln would have for disgust with today's GOP leadership would be their disdain for the common people, not for being pro-big-government.

That brings us to Reagan. You are misreading me, sir. I'm not talking trash about him; far from it. He launched modern American conservatism, managed to unify classical liberals and social conservatives into a single bloc, and integrated that bloc into the GOP, transforming it. That's quite an achievement. Now, though, the old guard is actively working to kick out the "extremists" and change it back into the Whig Party. They don't mind one bit cooperating with the fascist Democrats just so long as they get a cut of the action.
