    They aren’t TRUE Republicans, there’s a woman allowed to have an opinion!

    The RePugs DO have a long term, break-through, faith-based strategy: teleport young folks into the 19th Century and let ’em work their way into the 21st using Rush n Beck n Sean style Rugged Individualism.

    Most people get more conservative as they get experience and age. But only until they join AARP, then they want their grandkids and great-grandkids to pay for everything.

    As smart people mature they wise up to the fact that mommy government will never be the answer to all of societies problems and that hard work and personal responsibility is the answer.

    Unless, of course you have a cushy job as a public university professor, then you just relax and continue spewing the liberal mantras.

    A few years back, the people at Cadillac realized that the average age of a new buyer was 62. They correctly understood that they were selling a product that would soon be unwanted, and they looked at the competition, re-evaluated the buying public, re-tooled, and recovered.

    The Republican Party is like the Cadillac of many years ago. Although their message is a good one, their actions belie their stated purpose. And as many of us grow older, we get to see the games and deceit, and reject it.

    The Republicans are working hard to change the presentation, but if you put the same wine in a new bottle, it still tastes the same. The party is at a crisis point, where they will have to find a different direction or die. It is interesting to watch how they react to this; I hope they are smarter than they appear, as one-party rule is not attractive.

    I recommend one thing for them: do not continue to require lockstep purity of ideology. This will necessarily reduce the number of people allowed into your tent. The more ideologically pure the party, the more the members feel attachment. However, the more people you turn away, the more people will feel that you do not choose to represent them.

    ahab: We do, but the corporate media is not permitted to mention them. Especially if they file against the leader of the flat earth block on the Texas State Board of Education. Only the League of Women Voters and Rock the Vote would admit we exist. And while we are at it, give the LWV back their presidential debates that the Republicrats stole from them.

    Hey, I know. Let’s pay men more than women for the same job. Then protect men after they indiscriminately rape and abuse women. Then deport anyone (man OR woman) that doesn’t look like us. Also, teach superstition as science, and revisionist history. Don’t forget to ignore the constitution and teach bigotry and exclusion.
    What could possibly go wrong?

    You were actually making sense until the blanket bullsh!t of your last sentence. I’m a life-long liberal just beginning to collect social security (don’t dis me for this, I earned it) and believe that personal responsibility is, indeed, sorely lacking in many aspects of American life. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a necessary role for government to play — but it should lead by example as well as by laws.

    The problem with the republican party is that there are too many RINO’s in it. McCain is not a republican, he is a democrat in republican clothing. He has no understandingof the first ammendment as demonstrated by McCain/Finegold. Christie is not a republican, as demonstrated by his actions his willingness to have a democrat elected to the senate, rather than give the party another vote that can be counted on.

    What we really need is good old fashioned purge of the party. In biology, elimination is as necessary to the health of the body as assimilation. The same holds true with the body politic. We need to eliminate these fossilized pieces of coporlite and reinvigorate the base with the conservative values of honesty, transparency, virtue. We need to be vigorous in our opposition to those whos poicies will bring down and destroy this nation.

    I don’t want someone who is willing to reach out to those on the other side of the aisle for any other purpose than to grab them by the throat and choke the living dung out of them. I want someone who is unafraid to bring a knife to the trenches. I want someone that will bring a gun to the fight and be willing to use it.

    Extremeism in the defense of liberty is no vice, and compromise with evil, is no virtue.

    I remember when communists were the enemy. Then socialists were the enemy. Then liberals were the enemy. Now RINOs are the enemy. Soon you’ll have a party of one — but it will be pure.
