    If it is the intent of far-right conservatives to take over the party completely, then where will moderate Republicans fit into today's political landscape?

    Why does the left have to answer the games of the left? They frame it in this matter and question should be why can't liberals ever answer direct question of conservatism w/o going through long filabuster..to the point of wasted time but more importantly never answering direct and why is there postion and answer the reason why taxpayers foot the bill or to counter arguments to liberalism. Taxpayers are always held hostage to be tax more to support teachers, police, firefighters, etc. when taxpayers should be given competiion or other choices. Unions pigeon hole taxpayers every time and it's impossible for taxpayers to support more functions of gov't when in fact the gov't has a difficult time to balance their check books ...there's always the shrinking private sector and the drum beats of unions go on ..on how they have a right an entitlement to ask for these retirements when most private sector WHO SUPPORTS PUBLIC SECTOR BASED ON TAXATION.

    If Romney wins and the TEA party continues to gain influence the GOP rep will be damaged pretty badly.

    It may be 20 years, but history's vision is near 20-20. GOP'ers fail to remember that, the fact is someday future generations will look back on their actions and...i don't think it'll be pretty.

    I prefer to vote republican over democrat because, though I usually like dems overall, they always seem to thrust themselves into some damn, expensive "society betterment" plan. Not saying we don't need to improve upone society, but it needs to be down slowly and in a very bipartisan way. If you hit a roadblock, be patient, and start educating the public so that they may use their collective, almighty power and remove said roadblock.

    OMG...HOW HORRIBLE

    so that is going to hurt the Republican party somehow?

    Hopefully the people can stop the infiltration of the Progressives-Commies from the Republican party as they have already taken over the Democrat party.

    The Republican party is a useful tool for the masters.

    It WILL be just fine over the long run, as will the DEMOCRATIC party..

    actually he did answer your OP, on a conceptual basis, I just don't think you have the where with all to properly frame and craft an answer to it.

    please prove me wrong.

    Mitt is going to win the General Election and the Republicans are going to not only retain the House Majority but possibly even claim the Senate majority.

    So, what ever WILL "become" of the GOP?

    I know, I'm devastated. :D

    As the democrats slip further and further left into full blown communism, where are the moderate democrats going to go?

    That's not an insult, it's just an accurate assessment of your debating skills.
