In a stunning tea-party smackdown against the establishment GOP Tuesday evening, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., lost his bid for the Republican Party nomination against tea-party backed candidate David Brat by more than 11 percentage points.
Cantor outspent his challenger by a margin of 25 to 1. The House majority leader dropped $5 million on his campaign, or $166 per vote, against Bratâ€™s $200,000, or $5.70 per vote.
Republican incumbents Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Cantor had been favored candidates in their states, and both faced strong tea-party opposition....
I say a resounding "Yes," to Obamacare One the Romish hiarchy (sp?) is against it, since they use their social services to control their laity. (It appears that many Catholic health care professionals are much less hostile to it )
This is just another glaring example of our times.
Let this be a WARNING and a CALL to all who truly. Pursue/Follow Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.
WARNING: this is a result of a weak and ineffectual church. I/We have spent to much time on our selfs and not enough time with Christ and the Father on our knees. Thus the current downward spiral were in!
CALL: Let's humble ourselves before our God and Savior, REPENT, REPENT, REPENT every one of us! Cry out to God for Holy REVIVAL!

I really figured out out what RINO means, Reactionary in Name Only. However, Cantor seemed reactionary enough for me.
Why Jim, I would think you'd know what a real reactionary is by re-reading your own responses.
Ah, you forget, the Greedy Old Party wants to ban healthcare for pregnant women.

Women have been going into debt, declaring bankruptcy, ruining their lives; all to give birth.

Ah Jim, you link to the same old boring Sam,'s Club, ny times, Brooks propaganda. I guess you think the GOP should follow your advice and go more "moderate." You know, pick another Dole, then lose. Pick another McCain, then lose. Pick another Romney, then lose. Funny how the left keeps warning that if the GOP doesn't go moderate, it will lose. The GOP is already moderate, Jim. That's what's wrong with them, and why they lose. Tea drinkers, on the other hand have clearer heads. And that is what really scares the statists.
PS the nuthouse is already being run by the inmates. Haven't you been paying attention to what's happening to your country? Or is it ok as long as women get free birth control?

Being born somewhere doesn't make you a resident of country, except perhaps the USA, and even the Canadian Cruz was given dual citizenship status, The ungrateful Cruz tried to give up his Canadian citizenship, but being born there makes him a native born Canadian in Tea-Party eyes. Canadian --Christians-- support Israel, Canada-Israel Relations search for the paragraph that has "Quebec" in it, to see where actual Christians stand, and the Native American Canadian may have been Evangelical? Canadaâ€™s important support for Israel, the present Canadian Prime Minister.

Too bad about the author, David Frum. He started out so well. Perhaps his drift toward what liberals call the center is from hanging out too long with the establishment. Even the title "When will Republican Leaders Fight Back" is telling. How disconnected the GOP is from the people, when they think they should "fight back" at them.
Jim, who are these people.... you call them Palestinians! since they were born in the place you call Israel, perhaps you should be calling them Israelis. but if you call them Palestinians, I'm assuming then that you actually are for a two state solution? If not, why call them "Palestinians" --- can you call someone who never was in Jordan and who Jordan doesn't want a Jordanian?
The people you are supporting having their gay week celebrations in the Holy Land have no relations to those that lived there 4 thousand years ago. The forefathers of those you support were illiterate shamanists dwelling in the forests of Eastern Europe when literate Hebrews were receiving their inheritence.

Now they can either become equal voting members of the same society, or you can send Palestinians to their own country on the other side of the hill??? In America, if eminent domain is used, those removed are given market value for the property and are free to live anywhere else. Well, I guess the US also has reservations, would love to hear from a Native American brother and sister on how that is.....
That was a strange link, even for Jim. A Native American travels to Israel and concludes whose land it is by his feelings
