    Republicans going after Republicans. Did we not learn anything from Lieberman?

    It's amazing that the majority of the country admits to being conservative yet the damn Republican party is trying to become Democrats....

    Let the mushy squish republicans join the Democrat Party if they want to appease and enable them.

    I'm sick of douchy republicans who campaign like libertarians and govern like Fabian socialists.

    Or more, the Republican Party is turning away those moderates who are becoming democrats. When the GOP runs out of middle ground, how much power will it be able to yield? The GOP's base is in the Christian Coalition, but its power has always come from the middle.

    What if they attract more people who've been staying home than they lose to the other party?

    Speaking of "mushy squish republicans," this is what Limbaugh said of Dede Scozzafava:he accused her of bestiality 'cause she screwed every RINO in the country.

    The last thing the country needs is a Democrat party and a Democrat Lite party.

    Given a choice between those two, people will choose the real Democrat every time. (Which might just be why every Democrat is happy to tell Republicans how the only "smart" thing to do is to become more "moderate."

    What if Santa Clause came on Easter? It just isn't happening. The apathetic will stay apathetic.

    If the Republican party purges moderates, they will end up marginalizing themselves into a regional party instead of a national party. They may never be able to recover. Neal Boortz (conservative libertarian) puts it best when he says that the Republican party has to drop the abortion issue as a litmus test or they will destroy themselves. Boortz calls the pro-life crowd anti-choice. He personally doesn't like abortion, but he doesn't believe a man has a right to tell a woman what she can and can't do with her body. In short, the Republicans could get a lot more support if they stuck to conservative politics and dropped the social conservatism side of things that divide many conservatives.
