    Some people say that the GOP needs to "centre" or "moderate" itself because it's "too far right" (the BIGGEST canard EVER), yet they don't want to cede some territory as well.

    In other words, if we conservatives who want to fix the GOP, have to "centre" ourselves, will the others give up some far-left positions and "centre" themselves as well?

    Just a random thought late at night when I'm supposed to be in bed cuz I gotta get up for VBS bright and early...

    "Compromise" means that YOU sell out to THEM.....IOW, trade your principles for power.

    Of course, once you've sold out for that power, there's no end to the caving and capitulating.

    Exactly Dude, but my point was that why can't the "preachers" practice what they "preach"?!

    (Of course I know the answer, but I am interested in the replies, might make for a good discussion)

    If you're going to post meaningless drivel, I suggest you get out of the thread.

    Thanks!

    Well indeed, consider your post as meaningless drivel! The over hyped liberal media swelled with their promotion and election of the chosen one and you a mere pawn to their wild accusations!

    Okay then, aren't you really talking about moderating your beliefs to win elections, how does one do that and feel represented? The pendulum has swung to the left for various reasons and if things continue down the present course they will swing back to the right in 2010. In the mean time retain your comedy!
