I wish everyone of your generation thought the way you do Eric. Actually, I wish everyone of my generation thought that way too. It is no wonder V7 (see below) and others find too little difference between the parties. The Republican establishment seems to think only a moderate can win. McCain's defeat didn't teach them anything and Romney's defeat probably hasn't either. Newt would have drawn the Republicans who sat out the election to the polls, and we would soon have him as President. Maybe next time.
