The GOP -- Not a Club For Christians

The way NOT forward for the GOP is for it to continue offering its conservative base a Big Government, Internationalist, deficit-spending,'socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor' program, with RINO candidates (as it has since 1988) and think it's going to win elections for them. Get a clue, and smell the's NOT. The GOP needs to focus on the disappearing middle class, stress free enterprise, small government, and reduced taxes. Also, it's a POLITICAL PARTY, not an arm of the Christian church. Save the worship services and prayers for the local church.

We are talking about a way forward for the GOP. My final sentence was my suggestion to conservatives on how to attract non-Christian conservative minorities into the GOP.The GOP is not an arm of the Christian church, it's a political party. I will confine my worship and my prayers to my CHURCH. If the GOP can stick to Constitutional principles, small government, and reduced taxes, I will be happy with it. I don't expect or want it to be my spiritual mentor.

Except the peopel who want the worship services and prayer meetings in the party are the base.

In the scramble to make the GOP more diverse, a lot of people are looking at Asian Americans, whom many believe are a natural constituency for the party. I would love it if Asian Americans converted en masse to the Republican Party, but the challenge for Republicans is harder than many appreciate.

President Obama did spectacularly well with Asian Americans, garnering nearly three-quarters of their vote. This runs counter to a lot of conventional wisdom on both the left and the right. On average, Asian American family income is higher and poverty is lower than it is for non-Latino whites....
