"[T]hose white conservative losers who signed the Declaration of Independence and ratified the Constitution." Those men were not CONSERVATIVES, they were LIBERTARIANS. This is why the GOP is getting its a** handed to it in election after election. The only liberties that they espouse are economic and religious (which the latter has been perverted into evangelical booster-ism). The GOP needs to find the libertarian roots of our country.

His liberal media enablers are boldly declaring that somehow his four-point victory was a "shellacking," and the Republican Party is in danger of "ceasing to be a national party." They're very blunt about what's killing the GOP: conservatism.

It's not helping the GOP that some of its conservative leaders are acting thoroughly intimidated.

On the Feb. 10 "Meet the Press," House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said the Republicans needed to "connect our conservative principles with helping people and making their life work again." This only invited NBC...
