I wish at times the Grand Old Party would simply be called the Conservative Party. Just hearing the word "Republican" appears to bother a lot of the electorate. This needs to change. Standing up for conservative ideals seems to me to be the answer. We are not Democrat light-we are the conservative party. Each time a proposal comes out from our "leaders" it is framed as out of touch, or radical by the main stream press. How did this happen? We need more than rebranding-we need new leadership that understands the conservative mentality and openly supports us.
