As a life-long Republican, I am often dismayed about the decisions made by the so-called "Party Elders". In my experience(60's-80's), I found that being a "Party Elder" didn't mcome with any special intelligence. At a time when the Party NEEDS leaders who can lead the Republicans back to where we were in 2010,there is nothing out there but conflicting opinions. Those who would dump the Tea Party are begging for a "third" part y which would only guarantee Democrats in charge until the country is truly ruined. By then, it could be past repair.We have a Nat. Chair. Where is he?? And let's dtop the premature jockeying for 2016!!!

The more your local politics is conservative the better chance you have of changing the Republican party from within.

Country? Or federal government. Splitting hairs on my part, maybe, but it's an important distinction.

The federal government can go teets sunward today for all I care. The "country" will be just fine.

Memo to the leaders of the GOP:

The dysfunction in the national GOP was on display in Colorado over the weekend; and oh, boy, what a mess.

If conservatives ever win an election again in Colorado it will be only by mistake. 

Incumbent chair, Ryan Call, was re-elected 272 votes to 158 over a well-known challenger who had previously served as chairman in one of the metro counties.

I know both men and took no part in the fight.

By way of disclosure, however, I should say that the challenger served with me as vice chair when I was...
