If every registered voter - in both political parties - voted their philosophical beliefs, it is a fact that the Republican Party would win the election hands down. The Republican Party is not controlled by their conservatives even though these conservatives makeup a substantial number of its mem-bership. Those Americans who are more likely to vote on election day, generally speaking, are those who realize that our country is a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy. I believe, very firmly, that most games in sports are lost by mistakes made by the losing team and not by what is done on the offense. The same thing applies to the political game that is played daily by both political parties. The biggest mistake is not voting!
