I hope the Republican Party doesn't get duped into nominating another liberal to run for President. Christie is an anti-gun bigot who helped Obama get reelected. If he is the best the Republicans can do for New Jersey then good for them. But if he is the best they can do to run for President, there is no future for that party.
Those who support liberalism can vote for whomever the Democrats nominate. If Republicans can't get a patriot on the ticket there's no reason for them to be on it at all.
After the Republicans couldn't even beat Obama, patriots should start looking for another party. The Libertarian Party is an obvious choice.
