Great article but doubt the GOP will take that avenue. Personally after the GOP cut the legs out of the GOP at the convention and now Boehner takes 4 conservatives off committees I won't be voting GOP any longer. I think the GOP has killing themselves. For some reason they think the conservatives and Tea Party folks have no choice but vote for the GOP as the lesser of two evils. Sadly they are mistaken as there are other parties besides those two. This split will pretty much keep the GOP as a second rate party.

Dems treat blacks like that and got 93% of their votes after dismal outcomes. I am libertarian and won't vote GOP again if the cave.

Conservatives need to rally around a third party, but we all need to pick the same one and not be split up among several parties. Republicans being Democrats-lite is not winning seats or the hearts of the people.

Frankly, I believe that the GOP social agenda is killing the party. A significant majority of Americans are fiscally conservative, but socially liberal. They want to get the government out of their pocketbooks and out of their bedrooms.

I should have included "out of their wombs." I can name at least a dozen of my friends who voted for Obama simply because they were afraid of the GOP social agenda. Afraid that the GOP would overturn Roe.V.Wade, afraid that they would outlaw gay marriage, afraid that they would be forcibly sent back to their home countries. They like the fiscal conservatism, but they'll never vote for the GOP until the GOP assures them that the government will stay out of what they regard as their personal business.

Since you seem to believe that advocating the enforcement of immigration laws is bad perhaps you can tell me how many of the approximately 7 billion people in the world who can fly, walk, float, or swim across the US border should we be prepared to welcome?

You have a dozen morons for friends. I have morons as friends as well, but at least I know it.

Captain, government is not in people's bedrooms. You can doink a woman, man, sister, brother, chimpanzee, and likely no one will know or care (so long as legal age), and no conservatives have threatened to change previous. Abortion doesn't happen in the bedroom, but is carried out by government licensed physicians, and many people would like to see the numbers of previous reduced and for States to decide their own abortion laws instead of the Federal gov't...The perceived threat to 'what people do in the bedroom' is little more than successful propaganda by the Left.
Somewhere, there’s a whiplash lawyer who runs his law office out of a van down by the river who watches the congressional Republicans attempt to negotiate the fiscal cliff crisis and has to turn his head away. John Boehner and his inept coterie of GOP establishment cronies have made every mistake in the book. It’s professionally embarrassing.

Frankly, if these hacks were my associates, they’d be on a street corner with signs reading “Will litigate for food.”

Congress is famously full of lawyers, but what people don’t understand is that it is really full of bad lawyers. Good...
