The REAL culprits are: Conservatives pretending to be Republicans, Conservative Media who choose ratings over solutions, and those who think that everyone in this nation of millions agree with their point of view. I notice that Hansen said "border" not "borders" with an "s". Fact is as long as illegal means "Mexican" and border security means the southern Mexican not the northern Canadian border, voters are going to continue to believe that Republicans are racist and the ONLY viable party will continue to lose elections. It isn't only the Hispanics that run from a candidate with the "Republican" or "Libertarian" banner, it's everyone that isn't White. And that number, combined IS the majority now. Wake up, Republicans. Libertarians are trying to destroy the GOP because they think out of their ashes will rise their party. They don't get there is a reason that they can't win national elections.
I'd love to see people call the race card out. I am sick and tired of hearing how the Blacks of today suffer racism and how Americans have to go on paying for slavery. Very few people even remember segregation and when was the last time someone suffered slavery? Enough already. When Blacks start to pull out that card, we should tell them that it has expired.

A Republican Vision for Health Reform

Two problems that is just not going away: precondition and national health care. Sorry, this is like trying to turn back Social Security. Obamacare told people that everyone was entitled to health care and that insurance policies have no business not covering pre-conditions like Diabetes, Cancer, Heart problems. Most voters are living pay check by pay check or suffer some kind of chronic disease. As much as Libertarians pretending to be Republicans would like a total free market where everyone is supposed to pull up their bootstraps and take care of their own; most people need some help and gone are the days when families and neighbors are supposed to help. The better off just pay their taxes and expect the government to take care of the unfortunate. Which these days of Obama and grand spending is growing in number.

You'd gain a lot more credibility if you'd drop the illegal immigration issue. There is a reason the Democrats keep bringing up this loser issue. They understand that when border security doesn't include the white northern border and "illegal" centers on Mexicans and anyone who has ever broken a traffic law NEVER thinks that the fine they pay is amnesty, voters RUN from the Republican party. It APPEARS racist and sorry but every non white American with immigrant family, friends and co-workers fear the anti-Mexican rhetoric the illegal immigration issue brings forth. Just how many elections do Republicans have to lose before they understand that we've got bigger problems and dividing the voting public by racial lines does no one any good.
This isn't about anti religion; it's anti-Christian to be exact. I'd like to see these gay activist try and get a Muslim business to service them...! It's easy to pretend to be offended when the one you are claiming to offend you are nice, turn the other cheek Christians.
Well who's fault is this? If the race card would cease to purchase anything, they'd stop using it. Only conservatives roll up into a fetal ball every time that card is pulled. Why don't they do what people did when the feminist card grew old? Roll your eyes and say, "pah leez". And if they should say, "Are you saying there is no racism in America?" Reply, "Are YOU saying that a nation that has a Black man in the highest office, wealthiest people in entertainment and sports, and some of the most gorgeous people in magazines are Black is racist? Just how high and how rich does Blacks have to be before America is no longer racist?"

Why Pro-Amnesty Republicans Lost

This is one of the top reasons why Republicans lost. After spending decades trying to convince minorities that they weren't racist, Libertarians pretending to be Republicans spent the last term of Bush insisting on putting Mexicans in jail or sent back to Mexico. They claimed to care about the borders but not the White border to the North. They claim to care about less government spending...except when it came to putting up a wall to the Brown southern border. They claim to be against job protection...except when it comes to protecting Americans from jobs being done by Mexicans.

Why Pro-Amnesty Republicans Lost

The first thing conservatives need to do is be honest: calling immigration penalty fee "amnesty" flies against the logic of every person who has had to pay for a ticket. If someone tried to tell them that they were getting "amnesty" for breaking traffic laws after paying $100 and up, they'd probably get punched in the face.
1-Conservatives do not include “loyalty” among their principles. Conservatives call being loyal to Republican leaders “drinking the kool aid, or being brainwashed. But one of the first lessons taught to children is the importance of “loyalty” to family, friends, community. Loyalty is vital to unity—and no group can survive without unity. And truly, who wants to belong to a group that think it’s being intellectually honest to backstab and not support members of their party?
2- Conservatives never learn. How many elections do they have to lose before they get the fact that they do not win elections; neither do Liberals. It is INDEPENDENTS that either make or break an election. Independents that does not agree with everything either party believes in. And Independents are not stupid enough to forget that they are ignored until the months leading up to an election. Conservatives do not understand that only elected people get to change things or protect ideas and principles.
