Democrats are wicked. Republicans are weak and stupid. America needs a new political Party: A Party of fighters. A Party which understands that the Democrats are nothing but godless thugs. A Party willing to declare---"When they send one of ours to the hospital, we send one of theirs to the morgue". ------- A Party worthy of the word Freedom.

If we split the Republican party we will never gain a majority. Conservatives have to take over the party and make our case to the people, just like the left took over the Democrat party.

These are days of hindsight and second-guessing for Republicans, which is human nature after a trauma like this election loss.

There are million “why” theories out there, from the Hurricane Sandy effect to pernicious media bias. Wringing our hands over those factors gets us nowhere.

We can’t stop hurricanes, and media bias is always there. Reagan and Bush 43 won twice against waves of poisonous bias, so that is not an insurmountable obstacle.

What Republicans need is a slate of candidates that can energize the base while expanding the appeal of a conservative message.
