When Did the GOP Become Tax Collectors for Liberal States?

Mr. Schlichter is right. The GOP is headed down the garden path to socialism hand-in-hand with the Democrats. The two Parties are not debating direction, only velocity. The Tea Party ‘radicals" want the debate to be about direction and that freaks-out the neo-cons. Perhaps it is time for military/industrial ideologues to merge into one Big-Government Party with collectivist/welfare-state ideologues, and make room for a new Party with a small-government/free-market ideology.

We tried that with the Libertarian Party. Time to take the Republican party over and change it's direction.

Conservatives have been trying to "take over" the GOP since Goldwater. That is about 50 years. How successful have they been? Look at the presidential elections since Reagan. The GOP has moved steadily to the left.

Five decades of failure to take over the GOP suggest that maybe it is time to try something else.

I really can't argue with ya Corbett. But I do believe things are going to change. Thanks to Paul and others. Many young people identify as libertarian, but we have a two party system. Time will tell
