In the last few elections, thePubs chose 3 moderates. Dole,Mc, Mitt and they all lost big time. And in many Congressional elections, conservs have done well in many districts. The RNC has no idea what the BASE really is. It is conserv not liberal and not even Moderate-left. But they think it is. The Pubs have to unite with its BASE, TEAS, Libertarians, Reagan Dems and likely Indies to defeat the Takers who now out number the Makers in America. If the Pubs keep nominating moderates, they will lose the South, the MW, the SW and that will be that for the GOP.
