    Way back at the beginning of the primary season I posted messages stating conservatives should focus on getting control of the Senate. Without control there is not a chance the Affordable Care Act will be repealed. This piece by John fund analyzes where some of those Senate races are at today:

    Irrespective of controlling the Senate, repealing the ACA may turn out to be an impossible dream. The people who expect to realize big money from that disaster, along with labor unions, had two years to dig in and prepare their strategy for defeating repeal. Bribes have been paid, promises made —— a cover story has already been tested. The story: A two-thirds majority (67 votes) is needed to repeal. On top of everything else there is no guarantee RINO will vote to repeal in the event “Senate Majority Leader” Mitch McConnell can turn 51 into the magic number.

    It all comes down to this for conservatives: If the lifeboat is leaking are they going to get in or stay in the water. Conservative Republicans, basically the Tea Parties, must go all out to win the Senate in the remaining weeks before election day. Elect and pray for the best. Aside from control and repeal let’s look beneath the surface in two races.

    Missouri

    Establishment Republicans like Karl Rove tried to throw a seat to Democrat Clair McCaskill when they torpedoed Todd Akin. For that reason alone electing Akin should become a holy crusade for conservatives. Todd Akin’s victory in Missouri would send a message to Rove and establishment Republican RINO in general.

    Massachusetts

    Scott Brown over Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts has undertones that are equally as important as is winning control of the Senate. Defeating anybody from Harvard in their own backyard is one such undertone:


    After Scott Brown got to the Senate some doubt about his conservatism emerged. Still, you gotta respect a guy who is smart enough to nail two members of the Harvard cabal in one sentence:

    As to Cherokee Warren’s chances: It won’t take much of a push from conservatives to send her back to Harvard:

    Finally, more than any election in my lifetime this election highlights the necessity for a well-organized third party before 2016. The mere fact that Democrats are still in contention after everything Hussein & Company did to this country (with help from establishment Republicans) is reason enough for a third party.

    It’s not going to take more than a year or so to find out if Republicans are committed to rolling back everything Democrats did; not only rollback but fix it so they cannot do it again. Anything less and a strong third party winning a lot of congressional seats in 2014 is within the realm of possibilities. In short: Acquire muscle in Congress before settling on a presidential candidate in 2016.

    Anybody who opposed the things Democrats did while they were doing them should be more committed to undoing them; especially when it was rammed down the country’s throat as was the Affordable Care Act.

    I don’t know much about Republican Linda McMahon in Connecticut, but she looks like she might win her race for the Senate. In a sane world she would have no trouble beating this guy:

    Scott Brown winning in Massachusetts and Linda winning in neighboring Connecticut. What is the world coming to? Two Republican Senators from the heart of Liberaldom!

    Let’s turn our imaginations loose and say Republicans end up with 60 Senate seats. Come the next election cycle will anyone remember what pollsters and the MSM have been pulling for months?

    Parenthetically, the truest conservative in the House, Michele Bachmann, is in a tough fight:

    Tea Partiers and conservatives who read this message might take a look at Farah’s piece:
