Party unity

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Sep 12, 2003

Conservative Republicans in California are facing a familiar request: They should support Schwarzenegger's gubernatorial campaign, because the muscular liberal can unite the party.

This is the standard liberal ploy. They can't back conservatives, because conservatives are "divisive." But conservatives should back liberals, because liberals promise unity. On their terms.

You know the drill: "Why do we have to keep arguing? If you'd just admit that I'm right, we could all agree!"

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Frank: Look at the Constitution Party. It has been around for some years. You may find people there who are completely in agreement with you.

    Perhaps, it is time for all the various Paleo-Conservative groups, Libertarians and similar thinking groups to see if they could create a "Conservative Party" that might be a viable challenge to the two major parties. I would suggest that most Americans would support a "VIABLE" third party that was based on "Paleo"-Conservative principles. The Democrats have gone over the deep end and the Republicans have started toward that direction as well. Frank (Nalcrest, Fl.)

    It would be interesting to see what on the political horizon is a quid pro quo for this. If pro-life people should hold their nose and vote Schwarzenegger -- the pro-choice Republicans in PA should hold their nose and vote Pat Toomey (replacing RINO Arlen Specter)
