How Republicans Can Find Themselves

Republicans have been instructed to charge Obama with being a "socialist." Once the tables are turned and Republicans are charged with being "a bunch of socialists," these same card-carrying Republicans have been instructed to obfuscate the meaning of Socialism. Republicans now say "Show me ONE definition of Socialism in a reference book that says getting Social Security is the definition of Socialism?" or they strenuously deny that the 'redistribution' of wealth is socialism. All this obfuscation is intended to hide the fact that the Republican party has a slobbering love affair with their brand of socialism.

Republican socialism is and has been their airline company bailout, their auto company bailouts, their NON-regulated bank bailouts, their "No Child Left Behind" program, their socialist Medicare Prescription scheme, their proclivity for farm subsidies, their federally REGULATED bank bailouts, their insurance company bailouts, their 'Faith-Based Initiatives', their ethanol mandates, their endless pork-barrel spending, their Wall Street investment firm bailout, their $85 billion AIG bailout; additionally, Republicans believe in social engineering in Iraq and nation building in foreign countries more than here in the good ole USA.

And, yes, the Republican Medicare Prescription is a redistribution of wealth from the young to the old.

But wait Romney lost because he opposed the auto bailout and the voters in Ohio were mad about that. He is a socialist still right. Nice double standard.

Soul-searching is not in the GOP’s blood. Many Republicans see themselves as stoic, rugged and hardworking individuals. But after twice losing the White House to an ex-community organizer and failing to mobilize the base, Republicans need to take a trip to a mountainous valley, sip some tea and meditate.

In the quiet of nature, I think Republicans would find that the solutions to winning lie within themselves. After my own reflection, I developed three key insights into how the GOP can win presidential elections going forward:

#1 Keep an open mind

Early on, talking heads like Ann Coulter disparaged Romney...
