I worked every day for four years for the defeat of Barack Obama, only to see the election stolen from Mitt Romney by massive fraud "unprecedented" (Obama's favorite word) in American history. The Republicans don't lift a finger to do anything about it. I am drained, disheartened, discouraged, and will have to experience an epiphany to motivate myself to even read about 2016. Democrats count chads for a month. Republicans start blaming themelves. Pitiful.

The Republican party is filled with progressives of the early 20th century variety who give lip service to smaller government and less spending, but really are only concerned with who gets to control the increase of both. It is what is maddening and frustrating about the Republican oparty. Conservatives have nowhere to go.

It really does seem like the GOP would rather lose the race with a moderate than win with a true conservative.
After several weeks of endless postmortems of the 2012 presidential contest, Republicans seem to be trending in most articles as being in disarray and with little hope of regaining the White House for years to come, if ever in our lifetime.

Many pundits have written the tea party movement's obituary and are adamant in their belief that a shift in the nation's demographic composition spells doom for Republicans unless conservative ideas are abandoned.

But there is one way to bring a GOP that seems to reflect primarily the political philosophy of the deep South to a position that is palatable to...
