    The republicans need to keep our fiscal platform!
    -balanced budget
    -smaller government
    -Jobs
    -Less government in our lifes

    We need to add onto our platform
    -More pro science
    -State rights

    Things to charge
    -Become pro pot (We need to legalize it)
    -Become a pro marriage for all. We can't afford to fight the gays.
    -We can stay anti-abortion but we must become more favorable of birth control. This is the facts of life.
    -Distance our selfs from the church.

    Repubs are just old, bloated, white people.

    One of the repub pundits on Fox said a couple of things tonight.

    The repubs need to engage minorities and Hispanics. All they have are white people and nobody else voting for them.

    Your message is not getting through because you are no longer engaging people.

    This election 72 per cent of the electorate was white, in order to win you needed 76 of the electorate to be white. Next election it is predicted that 68 percent of the electorate will be white (not including Hispanics obviously)..

    Interestingly, from memory 25 percent of Hispanics voted repub this time, last time it was 48 percent....

    Repubs are doomed to failure if they don't start engaging the wider community

    Grumps, We whites have a much different culture than the Meso's and Blacks. A large part of the white population believes in less government and a balanced budget as we have a long history of such. We don't like big government.

    A large part of our population just wants to be left alone. The difference between whites and these other races is huge.

    .

    This shouldn't have been close to begin with, but the rape/abortion idiocy sunk it.

    If the GOP wants to keep pushing the social issues, fine. But they'll have to accept the consequences.

    Don't buy into the Democrat bullshit on "social issues". Roe v. Wade has stood since 1973 through more Republican administrations than Democrat. The dubious "freedom" to slaughter babies was never at risk. The GOP turned out a bevy of diverse and talented speakers at convention which prove that the party isn't anything like what the lying, smearing Kool-Aid drinkers claim. And frankly, nobody cares if two gay guys fuck each other blind as long as they leave the rest of us alone about it.

    This was about the tipping point... more takers than makers, more ignorant than politically or economically educated. GAME OVER.
