rightmostofthetime Wrote:45 mins ago (3:49 PM) HenryVIII tells us that only 12 percent of the electorate is conservative. When she throws out a lie like that, why should we pay attention to anything else she says? http://www.gallup.com/poll/152021/conservatives-remain-largest-ideological-group.aspx I have tried to have a respectable discussion with you, but since you've chosen to insult me, then the discussion is over. I don't lie.....I was referring to the extreme Tea Party wing, not the whole of the Republican Party, which includes many Tea Party members.

If you add up the number of liberal states, or just take a look at the electorate, you gonna see that conservatives only make-up about 12 percent of the electorate...hard to run a conservative in the general with that sort of odds...

Roberty Wrote:2 mins ago (3:20 PM) Right now, I don't know who can step up and be electable and pull the country to the right but if a conservative (doesn't have to be perfect) that can articulate, run a hard hitting campaign, and is a likeable (I'm avoiding the word charismatic) then we can nail it. Running the same stuff over again is suicidal. I have a plan Roberty, but it's a bit risky: it will take 16 straight yrs of Republican presidents. We elect someone like Paul Ryan, who is conservative in principles, but frames in a way that doesn't either scare or offend moderates. He's using Reagan's rule of applying conservative principles to solve current problems, right now. Ryan rights the economy, deregulates, signs the Keystone, pipeline. and creates an economic climate to put people back to work...1st problem solved. Ryan repeals and replaces healthcare with a free market solution....problem 2 solved. Ryan reforms SS, and Medicare, and welfare...problem 3 solved.. Now the public sees that Republicans are the can do Party...he sets the table for a Cruz, who then can be elected and actually limit gov....

"Scott Brown is running in a liberal state. How has that escaped you?" It hasn't, that was my point...now count up the number of liberal states; then count up the number of liberal states that have what you refer to as a RINO representing them.... this is all you're gonna get. Susan Collins is all your gonna get from a state like Maine. Scott Brown is as conservative as it gets in NH....there are a lot of states like that....

McCain, Dole, and Romney, who were the "electable" conservatives you want, lost. W won because we'd had 8 yrs of Slick Willy, and AlBore didn't excite the electorate...although he nearly won. After 8 yrs of W, McCain excited nobody....I don't even understand how he won the nomination. Dole never had a chance...it wasn't his establishment credentials that lost the race, it was his personality...cardboard had more life. Apart from visiting real Constitutional damage to this country, Obama has seriously divided us into armed camps. Libtards on one side, Conservatives on the other, and independents crowding the middle....I don't like it, but I am trying to look objectively at what we are dealing with and how to change it....

rightmostofthetime Wrote:6 mins ago (2:41 PM) Yep, let's not nominate a real conservative because such a candidate would be un-electable. Have the primary elections escaped you? For the exception of Dave Brat, every Tea Party primary challenger was defeated. Romney was electable, he simply turned out to be a really bad campaigner... What does it tell you when Scott Brown, no conservative, is in a neck to neck battle with Jean Sheeheen....do you think if Ted Cruz was running he'd be running away with the election in NH...how about Mass, CT, RI, NY, IL, CA, MI, MN.....seriously Al Franken is beating Sullivan. The country has moved to the left...

Do you want to talk ideology or politics....pick one, because they're not the same animal? I totally support the conservative ideology...I'm sure that reflects your position. What I am discussing is politics. The country has been moved to the left....we need a master plan to move it to the right. Pretending that Ted Cruz conservatism represents the majority of voters is really stupid....now what's your plan to move voters to the right?

rightmostofthetime Wrote:2 mins ago (2:29 PM) Some combination of Ted Cruz and Ben Carson would be unbeatable. It's time we took back the GOP from all the squishy moderates who just want people to like them. It's a nice thought, but neither are electable right now. The majority of the electorate falls somewhere in the middle. Until the electorate is moved to the right, or another Reagan comes along who characteristically draws voters to conservatism, it's not going to happen...
