Hopefully Conservatives will unite to successfully expel all RINOs from the Republican party - RINOs such as Colin Powell don’t really help the cause. Secondly, they need to develop a party strategy whereby its focus would be to appeal not to the supposed objective intellect of democrats, but rather to their subjective automatic all-controlling personal feelings. Instead of trying to win votes by relying on detailed explanations of the rationality of their proposals, maybe they should instead begin to contrast how democrat policies and their own will impact the feelings, jobs, wallets, liberty, and future well-being of the electorate.

After its second defeat at the hands of Barack Obama, under whom unemployment has never been lower than the day George W. Bush left office, the Republican Party has at last awakened to its existential crisis.

Eighteen states have voted Democratic in six straight elections. Among the six are four of our most populous: New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California. And Obama has now won two of the three remaining mega-states, Ohio and Florida, twice.

Only Texas remains secure -- for now.

At the presidential level, the Republican Party is at death's door.

Yet one already...
