The problem really is that republicans don't even want the same thing I want any more. They don't really want smaller government. They don't care about anyone obeying the Constitution. They just want the slow path to perdition.
I have all the evidence I could ever need that this is true. We have had candidates that would actually work on those issues and republicans rejected them.
Even with that being the case, if you screw up and nominate an actual conservative, you can count on my vote.
