    Wanted: Moderate GOP Activists - The Daily Beast

    I would have voted for a moderate Republican. I have voted for a moderate Republican. Witht the Republican party losing supporters at alarming rates, I expect the only way they can hold a branch of govenment in the future is to depend on gerrymandering districts to protect the far right loons. It has worked in the House so far. But the demographics are changing so drastically, that little game will come to an end. Then What?

    Then we wind up with a one-party system.

    Not an attractive thought. The silent majority in the United States are moderates. You ignore them at your peril.

    Republicans who do their job and serve the people who elected them into office.

    I don't exactly see what's wrong with providing people with a clear choice between two candidates, instead of providing two candates that are virtually the same.

    Why does it matter who wins if they have all the same viewpoints?

    So you want the conservative Republicans then?

    Because ignoring problems or compromising on principles to give us bad legislation isn't exactly going to be benefit the people.

    Mostly, that just benefits the politicians.

    Oh, you mean those of us who see through the obvious, hypocritical bull shit and radical stances spewed by both extremes?

    I want the conservative republican who is willing to compromise when necessary in order to reach a good and balanced deal.

    Especially who is not driven by religion, money, or just a kochsucker in general.



    Chris Cristie is a good example. He tended to the welfare of his people instead of focusing on politics and power.
