Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said on Saturday that if Republicans abandon conservatives, conservatives may have to consider leaving the Republican Party - sentiments also expressed by former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh, who said something very similar while speaking at the Illinois Center Right Coalition conference yesterday.
Palin was responding on Fox News to a question from a viewer, Josh Painter, who asked if she and conservative talk radio host Mark Levin would be willing to form a “Freedom Party” if the GOP continues to let down conservatives.
“I love the name of that party,” Palin said on Fox News on Saturday. “If the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and of Reagan, then, yeah, more and more of us are going to start saying, ‘You know, what’s wrong with being independent?’”
