    Well he didn't go after this ME country, did he? He didn't give protection for an American, against Muslims did he? Tell where he went after a ME country.

    The GOP needs to divorce themselves from religious fanaticism and present candidates who after the most intense of public scrutiny, will still be religiously ambiguent. HH

    So you're willing to trade one form of cultism for another?

    It is indefensibly ignroant and anti-Science.

    Well, you've already pointed out Global Warming. Paul Ryan is a creationist, which is a big hit against the ticket. Their energy policy is antiquated, almost backward.

    Actually, Muslim nations attack each other all the time.

    This is probably the smartest answer here so far.

    The GOP has some great ideas for economics and policy, but it is clear that today's America does not want to be told who to pray to, what to do with their ******s, or who to marry.

    EDIT: I can't believe the word for the female reproductive organ was censored by GT! That's a dirty word?

    Admit that the Tea Party is the proper counterweight to the Democrats and join up.

    Wont happen. They made sure to squash any hope of grassroots movements such as the tea party taking hold at this years GOP convention.

    Estimated US voter base

    There are an estimated 201.5 million citizens over the age of 18 that are eligible to vote

    Out of those 201.5 million people

    72 million are registered Democrat

    55 million are registered Republican

    42 million are unregistered (third/minor party)

    32.5 million may/ may not vote, or just don't care






    I believe that the majority of the country has a right leaning view when it comes to the economic and political (heck, even 2A and immigration) issues but when it comes down to certain social issues the majority do not see eye to eye with the Republican party. If the Republicans want to have a fighting chance then they need to evolve with the changing times. It's 2012, not 1940, gay people, inter-racial relationships, different religions, different outlooks on life, etc are all common place and those people are not going to vote for a party that they feel discriminates against them. There is approximately a 75 million voter pool (probably some from the Democratic party too) that the Republican party could dip into if they were smart.

    I like to call that the Libertarian Party but I've got inside information that Republicans hate us and think we throw away our votes so **** them.

    It's the center that wins elections and which ever party lands them wins. Talk all you want about energizing the far right base to take over the GOP, but that'll turn off a hell of a lot more voters than it turns on. Same story for the far left.

    The monkey wrench in the whole deal is entitlements of various sorts and people tend to vote to not lose theirs. He who seriously tries to reform Social Security/Medicare pisses off a lot of people, many of whom don't even (and perhaps never will) collect much of it. In my eyes, that brings the center leftward.

    You said it perfectly, I'll second it and I can't add anything more.
