Research the success rate of third party efforts over the last 100 years, Andy. It's not too hopefull. The greatest concentration of true conservatives is already in the Republican Party, they are just NOT in the leadership above the precinct committee level. The Rinos on the upper level have all sorts of barriers in the Party machine to prevent this from happening. The only way to bring conservatism to the top in the party is to take it over at the precinct level where the work is done. The precinct committe that I'm a part of has become all conservative with the exception of one or two plants from above that everyone ignores.
Any change requires pain. Whatever we are doing now is easy (we think) compared to change, whatever it may be. Changing is hard. It requires us to think anew, to change our habits, our processes, our language. It's venturing out into the unknown. Without a compelling reason, people will stay the same and not change.

People begin to change only when the pain of what they are doing becomes more painful than the pain of change.

Republicans -- it is time for change.

The election last week was painful -- at least for me, a lifetime conservative.
