Does the Republican Party Have a Future?

The GOP should control the US Senate today. Had the far-right not nominated utter morons like Christine O'Donnel, Sharon Angle, Richard Murdoch & Todd Akin, they would likely have the 51 seats needed to control the Senate. Was Richard Lugar "conservative" enough for some? Perhaps not, but he's a lot more conservative than his Democratic replacement. If the GOP continues to nominate old, out-of-touch white men, who have no ability to convey their message in an unoffensive or tactful manner, then they are doomed. Considering the number of Democratic Senators up for re-election last year, the GOP should today have at least 49 Senate seats. Let's not repeat this mistake next year, as it may be the last chance to win the Senate.

The only way to make things better is to offer a REAL, small-government alternative.

The ONLY way to get there is to STOP the progress of big-government Republicans. Whether that means cleaning house in the party, or killing the party for another.

Anything else is the foolish nonsense of people too myopic to look past the current election cycle. Talk about not understanding history...

IOW there should be a sh^tload of RINOS in the Senate who will bend over backwards to appease Obumphuck.

The United States, from day one, was a project about principles and ideals.

The super power that emerged and grew from the handful of colonists that began settling here was not the product of where those colonists happened to land, but the ideals and principles in their head and heart – applied in how they lived their lives.

The Republican Party was founded in 1854 to address one great blot on the nation’s founding legacy – the existence of slavery in a nation founded under the ideal of freedom under God.

Runaway slave and self-educated abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass said “I...
