CPAC :: No Gay Groups Allowed

Feb 28, 2013 Full story: EDGE 67

It's clear that the Republican Party is strongly divided when it comes to gay issues, including same sex unions.

CPAC is out of their minds. Instead of having the new Repubs, the up and coming stars of the Republican party - it banned Chris Christie and invited old washed up politicians who were washed up 20 years ago - Newt, Santorum, Romney, etc. It's ridiculous. They must be playing to the retarded tea party racists, low IQ folks - the ones who love Palin cause she's so stupid, like they are.

Because it's really a new Party that hasn't actually registered as one.
A political party doesn't have to "register" with anyone. This is NOT The People's Demokratik Socialist Republik Of Kanada.

Yes, they do. Tax reasons.

Don't be an idiot.[Did I just say that to you?]. Any person or organization that collects revenues has to pay taxes on the net profits. If you fail to file a tax return, the IRS assumes that 100% of revenues are taxable.

There are various purposes defined under 501 that allow organizations to collect revenues without paying income tax. But you must register your corporation under one of those sections, and you must comply with the rules for that type of business. And if even a dime is not used for that purpose, it becomes taxable. Depending on the infraction, your corporation may lose its tax exempt status entirely.

What astounds me is that Christie is probably, at this point, the leading contender for the Republican nomination. He is certainly revered on the East Coast. If his popularity continues, and he should decide to run in '16, do they really want him to refuse to attend CPAC in the future because of their treatment of him now? They are shooting themselves in the foot.

Christie may be the media's favorite for the leading contender, but he'll never be CPAC's. And CPAC has a lot more influence with primary voters than the media.

Christie will never get the nomination; he's on tape hugging Obama.

You could be right. But remember, 2016 is 4 years away, and the world she is a-changing. Of course, I don't have a dog in that fight. I'm already committed to Hillary at the moment, but I could be fluid on that, if the right person emerges from the center-left.

That's a good question. He hasn't shown any great interest in it, but then, don't all Governors seem to gravitate towards greater office?

New Hampshire's very popular John Lynch has no interest in national office. But I'm really hoping that he can be talked into a run against Kelly Ayotte in 2016. I am not, however, optimistic.

Yeah, he kinda went off the deep end. What ever happened to him? I heard on the radio the other day that our Missouri Governor, Jay Nixon, may actually be in the running at the next Dem Convention. Of course with a name like Nixon, he may be at a disadvantage. And then, there is the Hillary thing he would be required to overcome. Not an easy task. That's a problem with term limits. We had a somewhat engaged Governor (a Democrat with a state legislature full of Republicans), and then we throw him out after 2 terms, regardless of his actual job performance. Stupid.

I think his GOP convention speech made it pretty clear he wanted it then, but I think he has since realized he can never win the nomination.

Jesse? He was innefectual and fell off the political map.

he was a charismatic figure, and most Minnesotans i know that voted for him said they did so out of frustration with the same old same old of the two parites here. it did seem to shake them up a bit and we often have good, viable third party cnadidates in our elections now.

maybe 'jesse the mind' did do us some good...

i listened to most of the convention. must have missed that part.

not much else he is doing, or has done seems to lead me to think he is serious about it...but political winds shift quickly and often.

All you missed was Cristie beginning each sentence with "I."
