Santorum frightened women into thinking that they would not even be able to get contraceptives. Romney and Ryan had no such thoughts but the damage was done to them. Republicans now have their work cut out for them to convince people that when they say liberty they mean it, both for people's private lives as well as for their public and business lives.

Yeah, that Ron Paul sure had a bunch of paranoid, crackpot ideas:

1) Following the Constitution to the letter.
2) Requiring Congress to declare war (not allowing the President to start wars anywhere and any time he wants).
3) Opposing the Federal Reserve Counterfeiting Operation.
4) Supporting sound, gold-and-silver-based money.
5) Cutting government spending by one trillion the first year, and actually publishing his proposed budget, in detail.

Gosh, what a loon!

Did you read any of the stuff he suppposedly wrote, Ross83? I read some of it, and didn't really find it to be all that anti-race. Basically just statistics.

thats more than Ron paul himself claims to have done.

Soul-searching is not in the GOP’s blood. Many Republicans see themselves as stoic, rugged and hardworking individuals. But after twice losing the White House to an ex-community organizer and failing to mobilize the base, Republicans need to take a trip to a mountainous valley, sip some tea and meditate.

In the quiet of nature, I think Republicans would find that the solutions to winning lie within themselves. After my own reflection, I developed three key insights into how the GOP can win presidential elections going forward:

#1 Keep an open mind

Early on, talking heads like Ann Coulter disparaged Romney...
