First problem the Republican Party needs to address is the jackasses who came up with, or use, the term RINO. That term is exlusionary.

The RNC handed the election to Obama when they shut out the Ron Paul supporters. The GOP may never recover from that, and may be replaced by them in the next 4 years. Again, every time you exclude people from your party, you're adding another bullet to that revolver you're playing Russian Roulette with.
