GOP Solution: Stick to Values, Pick Better Candidates

I said during the primaries that Romney is McCain 2.0. Turns out I was right. I supported him and voted for him as the only viable alternative to Obama and that was my, and many other's, mistake. Democrats have gone full socialist. Republicans appear to be democrat lite. Here's a real alternative third party which I hope will become the second party soon.

Not going to happen. For better or worse we have a 2-party system and no third party candidate will ever have a chance of winning. Or at least not for a very long time.

These are days of hindsight and second-guessing for Republicans, which is human nature after a trauma like this election loss.

There are million “why” theories out there, from the Hurricane Sandy effect to pernicious media bias. Wringing our hands over those factors gets us nowhere.

We can’t stop hurricanes, and media bias is always there. Reagan and Bush 43 won twice against waves of poisonous bias, so that is not an insurmountable obstacle.

What Republicans need is a slate of candidates that can energize the base while expanding the appeal of a conservative message.
