To clarify: I mean it (Republican Party) has tried to be so inclusive of viewpoints that are counter to our platform that it is almost unrecognizable. And,it doesn't cater to its base, which is why we lose elections. If we continue to cater to the Chris Christie's of the party we will continue to lose--see McCain, Romney. They are all different sides of the same coin---RINOS.

Definitely, iprazhm. Loyalty ... it's not just for Liberals any more. For all the talk of 'ethics' and 'morals' the Republican party is lacking in both. Conservatives get all "holier than thou" and destroy themselves. It's time to set the Conservative Commandments in stone, allow for Reconciliation and Penance for offenses, and support only those causes which are truly Constitutional.

Well put. The idea I expressed above of 'close communion' fits here, I believe.

There is a line in one of the old "end times" movies shown in the 1980's that describes the Conservative condition: For fear of persecution, Christians are careful who they invite to their clandestine worship services. An infiltrator convinces a girl that she is truly a Christian but later reports the group to the Authorities. The girl who befriended the infiltrator walks by on her way to be killed, turns and says "but you are a Christian, one of us, how could you turn us in to be killed." The infiltrator responds very calmly "Anyone can SAY they're a Christian." With the sound of the guillotine in the background, that statement hangs in the air.

nomore you are absolutely correct in you summation. There are those who are destroying the party from within by working to move the platfrom away from conservatism to middle of the road politics where we straddle the fence on issues instead of taking a stand. Loyal to one side or the other according to how the polictical winds are blowing atm.

nomore-I think, perhaps, I see the possible origin of Ur "moniker" and I can identify with your train of thought! Maybe I should change my name to cynic?

What can you do with a man like Chris Christie?

The answer, according to many with the conservative movement: Throw him overboard. And while we're at it, let's toss the gays over the side too.

The popular governor of New Jersey has certainly angered many conservatives, including this humble scribe. During the crucial final days of the presidential election, Christie didn't merely embrace President Obama, he all but endorsed him.

Then, during the congressional fight over the disaster-relief bill for victims of superstorm Sandy -- a bill with more pork in it than a Jimmy Dean factory -- Christie denounced Republicans...
