Trouble Brewing in GOP

Karl Rove and Rance Priebus are employees who want to run polls, follow the polls wherever they lead, and try to elect candidates. If they see that public opinion is "going the other way," they urge the candidate to change his or her position instead of trying to educate the public on the conservative position. As a result, the Republicans are just as guilty as the Democrats for overspending, deficits, battery powered cars, windmills, solar panels, huge expansion of government, etc. They do not realize that adopting the Democratic-Liberal position will not buy them a single vote, but will lose Republican votes. That is how Romney lost.

I have to admit I never heard of Priebus until about the end of the primary. I've read a little, watched a little and I'm not sure about his agenda just yet.

I understand that Romney lost the Spanish speaking vote by 70 - 30.

If the Republicans fight to legalize all the illegal immigrants and grant them citizenship, and Romney ran against Obama again .... he would lose 70 - 30 .... with Obama gathering about 4 million more votes.
For the first time, I am wondering about the long-term viability of the Republican Party. I say this not as an advocate of its demise or restructuring but as an observer of troubling signs.

The Republican Party is thought to be the institutional vehicle for the advancement of conservative policies, but for decades, the conservative movement has been frustrated with the party's deviation from conservative principles -- its refusal to live up to its decidedly conservative platform.

I believe that the disappointing results for Republicans in the 2006 elections and probably the 2012 elections, as well, were in no small part attributable to...
