    It looks like the Republicans don't want to hear from Independents, Moderates or Democrats on how to proceed after losing an election to a President presiding over an 8% unemployment rate, and after being unable to come close to re-taking the Senate.

    Okay, fair enough, it's your party.

    So what should the GOP do going forward? And in your response, I'd love to see attention given to the following facts:

    • America's demographics are changing rapidly
    • The Dems essentially own the minority vote
    • Only 45% of Catholics voted for "pro-life" Romney
    • Abortion continues to be an important issue
    • Many in the party absolutely refuse to budge on taxes or abortion
    • Many Republicans are blaming a stupid populace for their loss

    So, given the above, what's the plan to re-take the White House, to move America in a more conservative direction? Precisely?

    Serious responses, please.

    Why should you care what the GOP does, or doesn't do? Another liberal who professes to know what is best for somebody else.

    Nothing lasts forever.

    We've had a good run, it might be time to call it quits.

    Rubber stamp everything the LOLberals want. Of course, then they risk taking all the blame for the failed policies. But that seems to be the case anyhow.

    Give the people what they want. Give it ALL to them.

    The OP ended with serious responses please... It's the one-liner that allowed it to escape the rubber room.

    Interesting. First of all, I care because I want two strong parties, so that each can keep the other in check. If you want to think that anyone who challenges you to think a bit is a liberal, that's your problem, not mine.

    Secondly, please explain how I profess "to know what is best for somebody else", when I'm asking for your opinion.

    You're trying too hard. Perhaps you should step away from the radio for a while. If you don't have an answer to my honest question, maybe you could just say, "gee, I don't know." Maybe Rush will cover it for you.

    Quit. Let the dems finish off the country then dust off the us constitution and start again.

    Here's an idea.
    Let the GOP figure out what they need to do, on their own. Liberals don't need to give advice or pointers.

    A lot of conservatives are actually pretty intelligent. They'll figure it out.
