    This new day is not going to go well for the Republican Party because they are facing an awakening among the voters. This awakening began with the November election, and continues as the Congressional Republicans try to rename and sell the same tired policies of the past twenty-five plus years. These are the very policies that have brought America to the brink of ruin. More and more of the GOP rank and file are coming to realize that the party they have supported for decades have failed to serve and protect this nation and it’s people.
    There are working and middle class Republican faithful that have lost much, but they still staunchly defend the GOP. As the new president and Democrat controlled Congress reverse and repair the devastation caused by Reaganomics and the policies it spawned, the number of these Republican faithful will diminish greatly, forcing that party to reevaluate their position and decide if they are going to reconnect with the American people, or keep trying to stay the course with their outdated policies and discriminatory loyalties.

    The fantasy here is that the GOP is going to survive.

    The GOP will survive, as soon as they go back to what conservatism is supposed to be and abandon the Evangelican-type-GOP that hijacked the Republican party in the 80's.

    You fear the truth just like all of the neoconservative Republicans. Your fear forces you to use profanity as a refuge like all ignorant men.
    Do not be afraid, unlike the government you would want established, America is returning to the values that make it a home for all of it's citizens, not just the special few as you would wish it.

    Don't forget the far leftist neoconservative hawks...the Marxists and Trotskyists Ronbo welcomed into the GOP...

    But, robins and blue jays don't nest together...extremism trumps ideological leanings.

    The Evangelicals aren't the problem.

    The problem is that the Republican Party has great values and ideas. I wish I was a Republican. However, the Republican Party consistently rejects the Republican Party's ideas.

    Yeah, sounds weird, doesn't it? But Americans now know that the Republican Party is NOT for smaller government, not for States' Rights, not truly pro-life, not for balanced budgets, and not for debt reduction.


    The Republican Party has great ideas. It's too bad the Republicans don't know about it.

    There may be a day when the GOP dies. When this nation no longer needs or deserves the principles of good government. But this is not that day.

    It's certainly true that the GOP has a lot of rethinking to do about what policies to continue to pursue, what to jettison and what to repackage. Their showing over the months since the election has been little better than it was in November, and arguably less convincing.
