That Ship has Already Sailed

I guess it's no secret that the republican party has already left conservatives behind after the disastrous results of 2012.
It couldn't get anymore wishy-washy than offering Massachusetts Mitt after trying to force lame McCain on us previously.

Voter turnout was lower than it had been in the 2 previous presidential elections which, according to the article, about 93 million eligible voters didn't participate.

I'm sure more than a few million of those where conservatives who have just given up on the RNC being able to offer a clear choice in 2012.

The RNC has left conservatives with no real clear choice.

Which is why, in my opinion, it's about time someone started forcefully stating the obvious.

Palin Floats Leaving GOP
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said on Saturday that if Republicans abandon conservatives, conservatives may have to consider leaving the Republican Party.
Palin was responding on Fox News to a question from a viewer, Josh Painter, who asked if she and conservative talk radio host Mark Levin would be willing to form a "Freedom Party" if the GOP continues to let down conservatives.
"I love the name of that party," Palin said on Fox News on Saturday. "If the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and of Reagan, then, yeah, more and more of us are going to start saying, 'You know, what's wrong with being independent?'"
Palin said that if Republicans vote for things like amnesty, "there will be a lot of us who start saying, 'GOP, if you abandon us, we have nowhere else to go except to become more independent and not enlisted in one or the other private majority parties that rule in our nation.'"
She said that both national parties are "private parties" and nobody forces Americans to be "enlisted in either party."
Palin's remarks represent the frustrations of conservatives who note Republicans lose when they nominate moderate candidates in national elections.~snip~
It's time to start getting the idea out there and for conservatives to have a really serious conversation about it.
Conservatives aren't killing the republican party, the republican party is killing itself by not fielding candidates conservatives can get behind.
If they choose another squishy RINO for 2016 they're as good as dead anyway.
