Maybe Republicans Should Try Being Popular

What Idon't understand is why the conservatives have to wave red flags of religious convictions (not impacted by anything) in order to make an argument for or against a position. The Democrat bull charges - but is followed by a large, stupid population of cows -- and stomps the red flag (and, concomitantly the position) into the mud. Dems 1 Conservatives 0.

Eliz- to win arguments all one has to do is stick to the Constitution and the law and ethics and court cases.

You don't need to invoke nor give up faith positions in the public square to win.

Focusing on putting money back into pockets usually wins.

Republicans don't control the U.S. Senate and they don't have the presidency. Instead of wasting time and energy in doomed efforts to defeat President Obama's Cabinet nominees or sucking up to illegal aliens, why not focus on issues where Republicans can be off-the-charts popular while forcing Democrats into taking stupid positions?

After the slaughters at Virginia Tech, Aurora, Colo., Tucson, Ariz., and Newtown, Conn., every sentient person knows we need to do something about institutionalizing the mentally ill and -- at the very least -- keeping guns out of their hands.

That happens to be impossible right now....
