Republicans must realize that:
Dems are in an all-out WAR, Win at all costs. There are NO rules. There is no Geneva Convention. Take no prisoners. Destroy your enemy. Propaganda is king. Cheating is always appropriate. They pick extreme left people who try to appear moderate.
Reps consider themselves underdogs even when the economy is in shambles, we are being attacked daily, and the Dems approval rating is low. They pick moderates and try not to appear extreme right. They appear at debates where the Dems picked the moderators the topics and questions. Thy tell us that Dems are nice people who have different ideas.
If Reps win they will allow the Dems to run the Government. This has worked for 36 years.
