It the Republican Party/GOP which has no future. The Republican Party/GOP is DEAD to this conservative. I will never again hold my nose & vote for a eastcost/beltway liberal RINO that the party crams down our throat. I'm looking for a conservative third party to join, support, work for & vote for. I will NEVER & I repeat NEVER again vote for or support ANY endorsed Repubican/GOP candidate.

I DON'T FALL IN LOVE with politicians – the last presidential candidate I voted for with ardor was Ronald Reagan in 1980 – and my heart doesn't break when those I support don't win. Nor am I a party loyalist. As a conservative I vote for Republicans more often than not; for those of us committed to free enterprise, limited government, military strength, and a healthy civil society, there is usually no better option. But the Republican Party isn't the conservative movement. And a GOP defeat doesn't mean conservatism – or the GOP, for that matter – is in crisis.
