Kurt, you can't rationalize your way to winning elections and doing this the conventional way. Tea Party members and Libertarians need to take-up their pitchforks, light the torches, and storm Washington D.C. We need to drag the politicians out of the House and the Senate by their hair, tar and feather them, and send them out of Washington on a rail. Finally, we need to storm the White House and do the same with Obama. 50% of the people in this country are NEVER going to vote for fewer "entitlements", less welfare, less EBT costs, less Medicaid, etc., etc. It is all lost. We must overthrow these corrupt politicians and start, virtually, from the year 1900.
