We need another Reagan. he stood up and was counted among those who really believed in the constitution, and the people's ability to be self sufficient, not sucking on the sugartit the dems are offering, while using the constitution for BRT.

Ron Paul fits your description. But the establishment said no to him having a shot at president.

We need people of ALL kinds to be attracted to the republican party. Peace and liberty are conservative ideals and should be used by the republican party to distinguish itself from the non-peaceful authoritarians that the Democratic party is. Until current democrats see this they will forever reject conservatism.

ONLY in this way can we attract more people to the Repubs than they can attract to the Dems.

pretty much. The calcified establishment reps just wanted somebody who was not threatening to the status quo, so they could look compassionate. Let us see what they can still say, in 4 years, from the obummer "relocation camps". The useful idiots from across the aisle will be the first to go there.
Any change requires pain. Whatever we are doing now is easy (we think) compared to change, whatever it may be. Changing is hard. It requires us to think anew, to change our habits, our processes, our language. It's venturing out into the unknown. Without a compelling reason, people will stay the same and not change.

People begin to change only when the pain of what they are doing becomes more painful than the pain of change.

Republicans -- it is time for change.

The election last week was painful -- at least for me, a lifetime conservative.
