This is the kind of thinking that keeps the republican party as a democratic party lite. Voting the lesser of evils is still evil. Holding on to the hope that the republicans will some day figure it out is nothing but a dream. Party politics is about power and money not about doing what they supposedly stand for. It is marketing and advertising. Both parties only have to work to get the swing voters. They don't have to satisfy their base if we refuse to hold them accountable.
