    If any GOP branch can not endorse this, then true conservatism really is dead.

    We'll see how mine fairs. I'll be submitting this next week.

    True hard-core conservative values left when Reagan left office, and the Moral Majority and the Christian Coalition lost influence. Good riddance to the conservative religious right.

    Excellent.

    I'm late but finally on the RP bandwagon. Hi, John!

    I may PM you in the near future about submitting this to my county GOP.

    Before you even ask, go ahead and use it. This needs to go viral.

    There are already plans in the works to possibly run this as an ad in some big newspapers around the country, specifically but not limited to states that haven't had a primary yet.

    McCain's going down.

    I've gotten several PM's asking if this can be used. The answer is YES.

    Please, whoever likes this, spread it far and wide. Submit it to your local GOP, and ask others to do the same.

    If your local GOP will not endorse this, then it's quite obvious what our future holds for us.

    Sorry, can't cancel out stupidity that's already happened. I can only hope to stop it from happening again.

    If you can find any one of my posts where I say that, I'd like to see it.

    I'm a small government conservative. The Republican Party most closely represents that ideology, or at least it USED to. That ideology has been SEEMINGLY desicrated by the media over the last 8-10 years...but I believe people don't forget that quickly. I believe that ideology can become alive and well again, and I see no other party capable of harnessing that except the Republican Party. Maybe the Libertarian Party, but there's just not enough nationwide support amongst that party to really make much of an impact.

    I'll dump the Republican Party in a SECOND though, once I see it as completely losing it's relevance with regards to conservatism...which definitely seems to be approaching. A McCain presidency would all but assure me that true conservatism has died.

    If the Republican Party elects John McCain as president, I'll no longer be a member. The mere fact that the party is even PUSHING him as a candidate, is a disgrace. Matter of fact, if John McCain is elected president, I may very well be moving out of the US.

    As for right now, my voter registration says "Republican".

    If anyone wants, here are the slightly revised PDF versions of this resolution, including all pertinent GOP contact info.

    One is an individual personal resolution that you can spread, and the other is aimed towards your GOP.
