That seems to be the burning question right now for all those who still call themselves Republicans. New York 23 seems to be a prime example of the growing Civil War within the Republican Party. Newt Gingrich and the Party Elite chose Dede Scozzafava as their candidate and that decision set off a nasty chain of events which ultimately led to the Republicans losing the seat. In the end the Democratic Candidate was actually more Conservative than Scozzafava was. The party tried to save the seat by backing the Third Party Conservative candidate Doug Hoffman,but it was just too late. So where does this leave the Republican Party? There is clearly a major schism in the party at this point. The Party Elite ordered their members to support Scozzafava and the people simply said No. This has to be incredibly disturbing to the Republican Party leadership. Can the Republicans really beat the Democrats in the Mid-Terms with this Civil War going on? It seems to me that they're going to have to make their decisions on this issue very soon. Are they going to be a Conservative Party once again or will they continue to be this confused Limbo-like Purgatory. Personally i feel there is a real grass roots Conservative Revolution underway but the Republican leadership seems to be ignoring it. This could spell real doom for the Republicans in the Mid-Terms. In my opinion more & more people are beginning to turn to real Conservatism. They are beginning to feel that the Socialists from both parties have destroyed our Nation at this point. The only alternative left for these people has to be true Conservatism. So in the end,the only question left for the Republican Party really is...Conservative: To Be Or Not To Be?
