Does the Republican Party Have a Future?

I say forget the RINO party and start over. So many of us have voted republican over and over again with nothing to show for it. We want smaller, less intrusive government, but all we get is compromise on how much larger the government will be. And when the republicans were in the majority, did they ever insist that the democrats compromise in the other direction and actually shrink the government a little bit? What our republican party has actually given us is slow-motion capitulation, not compromise. I'm done with them!

It's fine to challenge the party to adhere to its principles and core beliefs, but not to such a level as to undercut its ability to win elections. You can rest assured that the Democrats will not be engaged in the kind of intra-party conflicts that the GOP has been consumed by in recent years. Democrats have found a way to unite their diverse factions into a motivated, cohesive and organized voting block that will turn out to support their candidates. The result is a Democratic-controlled Senate since 2007, wins in 4 of the last 6 Presidential elections (and 5 popular vote wins). These people must be opposed by the only group capable of defeating them - a united GOP. No more infighting, and no more Akins, Murdochs or O'Donnels!

Any and every human being on the planet can be made to look like a fool.

Humans are humans.

How do we convince Americans that have been trained to be stoooopid that spreading the wealth around is foolish?

How do we restore Common Sense to the dull?

We need a cartoon!

You are opening the door for left wing radicals. I agree with your premise but not your solution. What would George Washington do?

All Americans should abandon political parties and word for free and open elections that include independent voters.

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...
