You can't purge the social conservatives to win. This isn't our team against their team and you get to pick the players. The Republican party is supposed to be socially and fiscally conservative. There is already a party for the socially liberal and fiscally conservative - Libertarian. I think most people are libertarian but they still identify as R because it is the bigger party.
The Rs are screwing themselves by make issues out of crap and letting the more important stuff go. Gay marriage for example. Simple solution - government gets out of the religious marriage business and creates civil union with all the benefits and protections currently offered by marriage. Marriage moved to the church.
The R party has some great members but they get no coverage. Tom McClintock from my district for example is awesome.
