I will take the job. Not only would I get rid of the "Republican Party" to replace it with a well defined Federalist Party, I am honest, street smart enough to expose obama's crimes publicly, demand impeachment and brazen enough fight a winning fight. I am an American. When can I start?

If you can win, you've got my vote. But I personally don't see the need to get rid of the GOP, or Libertarians, or Constitution Party, or anyone else.

I just think we need to unify, not eliminate. Let everyone maintain their distinct versions of Conservatism, while unifying them around one core vision. I believe that vision in Choice (and your Federalist idea would work perfectly well with it).

The key is, whatever path we choose, it must lead to electoral victory, or all this is pointless. The first political principle is the principle of winning: "The winners will govern the losers."

So let's win. Together.

The current cast of thieves and liars already showed their colors. They have to step down now.

And what of their supporters?

And what would be your positions on the issues? Opposing Obama, fighting Obama, and impeaching Obama--all very worthwhile goals--do not constitute positions. Would you take strong positions (which I think is great) and then demand a my-way-or-the-highway stance of telling everyone who doesn't apply Conservatism your way to leave (not so great)?

Diane, you sound like a fine candidate for office--one I could wholeheartedly support. My question is, can you win enough votes? Starting by throwing out large factions on our side would simply guarantee the very division that Democrats pray we'll embrace.

I think you're better than that. I think you could unite us while fighting the real enemy--the Left.

I think any great American conservative can win an election IF he/she is prepared to address AMERICAN issues. Those who haven't yet assimilated would most certainly have a life change under such governance....but isn't that the goal anyway? if i ran for office I could win via my American stance AND my willingness to validate and expose my opponents crimes against the people. I would actually be amongst the people rather than the establishment. I am a problem solver, panda....and a very good one at that...

Sounds good to me. You have my vote :)

Just don't toss out folks like me, okay? While I disagree strongly with some of Boehner's decisions, I believe the greatest problem is the very real division on our side that caused so many to stay home on November 6th. The problem is simple: Our opponent is too numerous, with too much rabid devotion from too many demographics.

Because of this, we MUST have a central vision that unites us and draws others. This isn't an option. This is imperitive. Without a central vision uniting us and drawing others, WE CAN'T WIN.

Once united around that vision, we can much more effectively expose our opponents' crimes against the people. We'll be heard much better when we stand for a simple vision.
Who wants a fantastic job? Unemployment is high, so there ought to be many candidates. The job is leader of the Republican Party.

As leader, you will be the spokesman for a philosophy of smaller government, more individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, free markets and budget cuts. You will speak up for the traditional family and strong community organizations.

On one hand, you stand for keeping taxes low on the very richest Americans. On the other, you're for cutting programs that are broadly popular. Congratulations. What are you for that Americans support? That's what is so great about this job....
