In a nutshell, this is why the GOP needs to give in to the conservative base for once and run Huckabee (or if you prefer, name any other real conservative, I'm fine with that) for President in 2016. The base did our job and got behind Romney, and they still couldn't drag him across the finish line. They owe us BIG time by now. Quote Spartacus everyone: "I am the Tea Party."

I really don't like Huckabee. I really thought that in a lot of ways that he would be a Rino at best and Jimmy the peanut man with a R instead of a D.

Thank you Vic, then name your guy (or gal). Somebody who's passionate about moral issues.

Remember when liberals wondered "HOW!*? did they do it?" in 2000, and they found out it was "values voters" who Rove correctly identified and attracted? Yet, since then, the GOP hasn't given us anything in return?

That's why I say 2016 should be reimbursement time.

I don't know who's more rock-solid passionate, and at the same time likable, on the moral issues than Huckabee. He'd do better in that way than Santorum or Bachmann. So, please suggest a good alternative candidate.

Thanks.

Sorry, paraphrase is the right word I guess, not quote.

Tasmaniam, I think your wrong, the base did not come out to support Romney and look at what we got. Romney did not get as many votes as McCain got in the election before this one.

Thank you Les. I am basing that off of Medved reporting that 79% of evangelicals supported Romney. Which is what the GOP badgered us into (again), and we came through with flying colors (and proved the liberals wrong that we wouldn't support a Mormon), so that is why I say they owe us, by giving us one of our own for a candidate.

You're right, total votes for Romney were less than for McCain, but Obama got FAR less than he did in 08 (again, Medved's data on his radio show), something like 2 million fewer GOP votes and 11 million fewer Dem votes. They still had the better turnout anyway.
These are the types of invasive tax maneuvers that boiled the blood of our Founding Fathers. But there's still a way out of all our Internal Revenue Service wars and woes.

U.S. News & World Report highlighted some more encroaching news this past week in the article "IRS High-Tech Tools Track Your Digital Footprints."

The IRS is "collecting a lot more than taxes this year," the report explained. "It's also acquiring a huge volume of personal information on taxpayers' digital activities, from eBay auctions to Facebook posts and, for the first time ever, credit card and e-payment transaction records."

It added, "The agency reveals...
