When the Republican party had an opportunity to unite behind a truly constitutional candidate, they chose instead to ridicule him and rally behind a RINO. It is no wonder that the party is, today, hardly distinguishable from the Democrat party. I see no future for today's Republican party, and I really don't see the leadership of the party doing anything to atone for the bad mistakes they made in 2012. I think we should all have listened to Washington in his farewell address when he warned us against factions. Party politics is at best a bad thing, but it has developed into something that is ruining this once great nation.
