I just love reading the posts on this subject advocating more conservative stands. The electorate is basically split in thirds from conservative to moderate to liberal. How can you think that moving to a more polarized position will win the moderate voters that really decide elections? Now, before the next poster asks me why I don't just shut up, here's the answer. You are all so locked in your belief system that you can't and won't consider any alternatives-come hell or high water!! So please, please keep beating the drum for the likes of Cruz, Paul and Palin. You make it easier for Democrats to win the presidency (the ultimate prize). Thanks!!!
