If the GOP wants to grow it should take a hint from Ron Paul. The man brought more independents and democrats into the party than anybody else has in recent years. Whatever the GOP's plan has been for the past few years.. isn't working. An unabridged messege of liberty, like that promoted by libertarian Ron Paul is the only thing that will bring droves of young people and minorities into the party. Incidentally, Paul's brand of fiscal conservatism is a must if we don't want the country to fall apart through financial ruin. The GOP leadership's plan of slightly reducing the rate of spending increases will still bring our country to its knees.
