Social Conservatives: GOP Can't Live Without Them

American conservatives tend to ask and then answer their own questions. In Election 2012, my group voted 99% to 93% against the Republican Party's message and messengers. That is the vote in 50 states from the Pacific to the Atlantic. The Republican Party's constituents agenda has no alternative or could be opposed by my group, it is what it is. The Republican Party leadership, volunteered to represent the social and political interest of that constituency. My group since 1964 never ask or demanded the Republican Party renege on their promised representation of that constituency. The demands that Republican Party change their promise to represent their constituents social and political interest doesn't extend from my group

My group's political mission is to vote as nearly 100% against the Republican Party as possible.

During the last 6 years from 2006 to the present we never ask the congress, courts, or president to redress or address any issue or concern.

No alternative exist to the Republican Party's agenda, if enacted it is useless and meaningless.

What is done by my group is to vote en mass against the Republican Party on ballot day.

Since 1964 we have never asked the Republican Party to renege on it promises to it constituency, period

I am not sure who your group is... I could imagine though (but I won't). I am not sure what is so offensive to you about the Republican party but I am quite offended by the unfettered taking of human life known as abortion. I am offended by the break down of the husband/wife definition of marriage the other side proposes with it's same-sex, I wanna be like you and have my rights message of intolerance and insensitivity. It seems to me that when a person or party cannot speak up and act on behalf of those who have no voice (the inborn), then what ever other proposal that seems good for the rest of us is just a farce and a smoke screen to ease our discontent. I will vote for any politician (Dem or Repub) who will not look out for the unborn.

I will "not" vote for any politician who will not look out for the unborn. Just to be clear!
One of the largest elephants in the GOP's post-election room is the fate of Christian and other social conservatives. Party honchos can't just wish this problem away -- or, maybe they can.

There has been increasing hostility toward Christian involvement in politics, and the animus hasn't been solely from the left. To be sure, Democrats have taken the lead, demonizing conservative Christians as science-challenged scolds who don't care about women's "reproductive rights," but there is plenty of antipathy from certain elements within the Republican Party, as well.

Many establishment and some libertarian Republicans have long looked upon Christian conservatives with mild, condescending...
