What nonsense. For many Republicans, politics is a game and victory is achieved whenever a Republican is elected. Others care about what happens after the election. We want the government to stop growing or, better yet, shrink. For us, nothing has ever been won by electing Republicans. I am over 60 years old and, during my lifetime, there has never been a time when the government was not larger than it was a year earlier.
Those of us who want smaller government must either get the Republican Party to stop nominating big-government candidates for office or else start a new party. The current Republican Party is a totally useless.
