Conservative principles?!!!! We tried conservative principles for 30 years and they proved to be abject failures. Why do we need to try again. GOP lost because your ideas are old and stale. Its not the 1950's anymore. The country is BROWNER. The white male power structure has lost its grip and it SCARES YOU! When the GOP figures out that being the party of exclusion, the party of no, the party of stupidity and racism will NEVER win them an election, then maybe there will be hope for your party. But I doubt it because you guys get your talking points from Fox News and Rush Limpbow.
