    I think that is a load of malarkey handed out by the libs and swallowed by the masses as a means of broadbrushing Republicans. Every time a Republican running for Dog Catcher in Peckersnot Tennessee makes a statement like "God wants us to look after the dogs' the liberal media jumps all over it. How many Democrats are atheists, socialists, communists and you don't see the media spinning that up.

    Most Republicans don't give a **** about the things they are accused of. The Republicans don't run ON an 'anti-abortion" platform but they are ACCUSED of it by the media in a sort of "Do you still beat your wife ?" manner.

    If the Republican Party cannot draw people away from SantaBama, as far left as they are, how can anyone more fiscally conservative convince a large portion of the 47% that they need to cut their benefits and pay some?

    But it is that kind of thing that caused Romney to lose the female vote. They were afraid he would go after the abortion issue because of his religious beliefs. If the republicans want to get those votes back they should just say they have no interest in attacking Roe v Wade.
    Of course if they say that, they will lose the christian repblicans who DO want to overturn Roe v Wade.

    Oh, I hear you. I'm pretty much a one issue voter too. But it seems as though we have our wagon hitched to a horse that is possibly no longer a winning horse.

    That's basically what's been happening. Both parties are slowly aligning as one. Yeah, they put on a show for the tv cameras but behind closed doors is a different story. Both parties are taking bribes from the same people to do what they want them to do.

    There was somebody. Ron Paul was running. The lie stream media didn't cover him at all. Yet he got more people at his rallies than Romney and Obama combined.

    Here's video proof of how popular Ron Paul is. Yet he was ignored by the media and republican party and was cheated from being nominated as the republican canidate.

    P.K. your argument is self-defeating. If he was that popular, then there must not have been a problem with his getting the word out.

    He failed to get the votes in the primary, it's just that simple.

    You will believe anything broadcast into your head by the media that you complain about being biased.

    In all my years of politics I have never seen such a delusional group of losers .

    Their "Superman" couldn't win a primary, got maybe 1-2 % of the popular vote and they are still clinging to him and claiming "he coulda been a contender", and spinning up conspiracy theories about why he totally flopped.

    He did get the votes. However the republican party committed political suicide to prevent Ron Paul from being nominated. Also with that rule change delegates can no longer vote their conscious and are bound. That is the kind of rule that is in suit with a dictatorship. Here's video evidence showing proof of this fraud.

    There are too many neocons and Fox News zombies on this forum to be open to the fact that their beloved Republicans committed any type of fraud.

    There is no theory about it. The video evidence is in front of you. You have no idea how detremental that rule change is do you? I tell you what, if that rule change had been in place in 1980 then that would have silenced Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan would have never became president.

    In the general election, with all the fanboys you claim, able to vote for whomever they wanted, he drew such a miniscule amount of votes it says it all.

    Public displays of denial just makes the whole Libertarian movement look like a bowl of Fruit Loops.

    You know, I can fill this entire thread with video evidence and testimonials from people who actually witnessed voter fraud in the delegate process of each state. It's all on youtube taken with camera phones during each state caucus. I've already posted video showing how the RNC scripted the rule change with the teleprompter yet you refer to me as the one who is in denial. Unlike you at least I'm man enough to admit when I'm wrong. BTW I'm a registered Republican.

    Paul didn't have the support necessary to win. But that being said, I am against voter fraud. I am for the guy with the most votes winning.


    Look at the results from the Texas Primary. Paul didn't get near enough to be considered a serious candidate.


    Barraka Claus won. Sad, but true.

    This.

    To the OP - what can they possibly change to?

    The republican party doesn't need to change because politicans have performed the 2nd greatest trick ever played..

    They have convinced the American populace 1) there are only two parties to vote for 2) all a person's woes and problems are the other party's fault 3) they care about you and they have the plan which will make everything in your life rainbows and unicorns

    If they continue to lose elections as a party they can 1) always change sides 2) can always convince a portion of the population they are the last line of defense against the other "evil" party 3) cash in those political favors.

    Imagine next election the Republican party won every Congressional/Senate seat up for grabs; they won the presidency - how will things change?

    You can argue Obama is leaving them with a mess (he will) - but are they suddenly going to uniformly cut/balance the budget, lower taxes and gut the welfare rolls - nope.

    The Federal Government today is a game of musical chairs - get in, take what you can, as much as you can, as fast as you can, as long as you can. Whomever is left when the bow finally breaks - everyone will blame them...
