It is not conservatism that turns off the middle. It is this crazy stuff pushed by the far right or just plain ignorant. Do you really think that you will attract voters that you insult and call liars or stupid? That recent statement about Obama voters getting "free stuff" may have a grain of truth but there were lots of voters who were not getting free stuff and lots of Romney voters that were. A disabled veteran gets "free stuff" from the V.A. A 90 year old mother of 10 gets free stuff with Medicare and SS. We keep calling people names and sending out hate messages. Does that win over the public? You dont have to give up your values in order to give up your schreeching.
