    Maine’s Tea Party Coup

    May 11th, 2010 at 7:42 am by Jeb Golinkin

    The inmates (the tea partiers) are now officially running the asylum (the Maine GOP). Maine Politics reports that delegates attending the Maine Republican party convention voted “overwhelmingly” to rewrite much of the party platform to reflect their less than mainstream views. The new Maine GOP platform now calls for, among other things, getting rid of the Department of Education, and the Federal Reserve. It also rails against “the UN Treaty of Child Rights” and “Law of Sea Treaty” on the grounds that we must push back against “efforts to create a one world government.” The tea partiers also took the opportunity to call for an investigation of (this is an actual quote) the “collusion between government and industry in the global warming myth.” Also, we’ve adopted Austrian economics… whatever that means.

    It’s hard to even know where to begin. On one hand, it is not exactly new news that Tea Party people have some unconventional views. What is news is that Tea Party values are imposing themselves on mainstream Republican party values. Up until now, the primary question for mainstream Republicans is whether the Tea Party would break off from the Republican Party and form their own movement. The events in Maine raise the possibility that the Tea Party is looking to ideologically transform the GOP to reflect their (gulp) “unconventional” ideas.

    I love it.

    Bend over and kiss the monster you created, GOP.

    And good luck to the Maine GOP in getting anyone to support their platform in the general.

    That shit wouldn't even go down in a red state.

    There was collusion between the government and global warming, follow the money trail. Where do you think Al Gore has made all his millions??? BTW did you happen to see what happened to senator Bennett out of Utah, the GOP delegates FIRED him, they were tired of his earmarks. The tea party people are not only protestors they are delegates, as am I and we will determine who is conservative enough to be on the ballot for the GOP. You can bet your buck wheat that there will not be any RINO's on the ballots this year.:clap2::clap2::clap2::clap2:

    Getting rid of the Dept. of Education is out of the mainstream? It used to be a part of the Republican Party Platform.

    Yea! JUST like the founding fathers = pushing daisies, cadaverous, extinct

    Lee Atwater, Karl 'Goebbels' Rove, Fox News, corporate lobbyist run Freedom Works and the right wing echo chamber have created a class of human-like creatures that are totally devoid of a brain...pea brain would be a monumental step UP from where you cretins are.

    The propagandists had no idea you morons would really believe their bullshit...

    This is the GOP's death knell...Don't say you weren't warned...

    Invasion of the Party Snatchers
    by Victor Gold

    Few political activists have a stronger Republican pedigree than Gold. A press aide for 1964 presidential nominee Barry Goldwater and later Vice President Spiro Agnew, Gold also was a speechwriter and adviser to President H.W. Bush. Gold coauthored the latter’s biography.

    He also coauthored a novel with Lynne Cheney, wife of the vice president. He cheered the Republican takeover of Congress in 1994 and the presidency in 2000. He was one of those well-connected GOP activists whose loyalty appeared well-nigh absolute.

    No longer.

    "Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the Republican party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them."
    Barry Goldwater

    IOW, he's the kind of dyed-in-the-wool neocon dirtball that has ruined the GOP.

    Yet, he writes a book about how dirtballs like him destroyed the party?...Well, I guess he would know, huh?

    Victor Gold is a Goldwater libertarian. And YOU are a right wing Jethro.

    Victor Gold was attracted to Senator Barry Goldwater for his strong stance against Communism, his libertarianism, and his contrarian tendencies.

    In 1964 he became deputy press secretary for Goldwater's unsuccessful presidential campaign. In his chronicle of the 1964 election, Theodore White described Gold as having played a critical role in helping to overcome the press corps' hostility toward Goldwater. A 2007 article in the Washington Post quoted White as saying that Gold "carried [the journalists'] bags, got them to the trains on time, out-shouted policemen on their behalf, bedded them down and woke them up, and before they knew it, the correspondents, about 95 percent anti-Goldwater by conviction, had been won to a friendship with the diminutive intellectual which spilled over onto his hero."
