Face facts folks the Dem's have their crap together and the Rep's don't.
To many divisions on the Republican side and the Dem's have all theirs in line. This is the same reason every time we have a third party in an election it takes away votes from the republican party and not the democrats. Happened again last night. There was not a shot for these independents to win anything but a local election but yet Romney lost votes because of them. Would it have changed the election? Maybe or maybe not. Who knows now.
If it always comes down to a candidate is to far center or to far right will always divide the party means the Rep party is dieing at its own hands. The Obama campaign should have used the motto divide and conquer because thats just what they did. I've herd so many of my Rep friends over the last few months say things like, "guess I will have to vote for the less of two evils" is something you will never hear on the Dem's side.
IMHO, you all need to look who has a chance to win that is closest to what you believe and vote for them. Enough of this BS protest votes for a Libertarian that's running for president and is only on the ballet in two f_in states. Suck it up do whats better for the country.
The republican party needs to go back to its roots and be a party of the people. ie; I liked the Tea party at first until they got off track with their social ideas and that just killed them in the average Americans eyes. They had a good idea and then broke it by going in areas they should not have.
I'm a Reagan Republican. I'm not what the media paints me to be. Ya, have a few guns and yes I will put a bullet in your ass if you come to hurt us. I have every right to protect myself and in the middle of the night in my boxers I prefer something a little more powerful then a tennis racket. What is wrong with that? I also know my neighbor, a union democrat has 10 times what I do and he is at war with the rest of the neighborhood because he has the right to use the point off our boat ramp as hunting bird blind and does every year maybe 50 yards from the community playground. But yet as a Rep I'm labeled as the gun nut?
I like black people and have had many friends over the years. My theory has always been at work, if you can do the job and at home, you have the same morals I do then you are just people.
South of the boarder Americans are some of the most hard working and respectful people you will ever meet. I just want them to do it the legal way like everyone else had to in our history. All of a sudden we have to change it because we are flooded with illegals? And if not I'm a raciest? There is something wrong there. No other country has open boarders like that just for security reasons alone. Hell you need a passport to get into Canada (the 51st state). And again I'm labeled a Republican bigot by the Dem's and it sticks and yet again I know many more lets just say political incorrect folks on my block and they are all Dem's.
Why isn't everyone not concerned with taxes? The Rep party has to get out of this label and mode of taxes and the rich thing. The Dem's do it to the people the same way. They just repaint it and tell you its a new car and their followers eat it up. Why isn't a flat tax more of a political point in the Rep party? Everyone has skin in the game but again nothing but tax reform from the Reps which means middle class takes a beating for the greater good. Romney had good points about what Obama spent compared to the subsidies to the oil companies but then should have said they are on the table to be cut instead of being cornered into that home deductions (another kick in the balls to home owners, the rocks of any community) are what they were looking at. IMO that is why Romney lost right there.
Wall st ....... For all you Dem's out there, as much talk there was about Wall st and Obama at war, you were lied to. I follow the market a lot. Wall st loves Obama but yet Romney was the fat cat Wall streeter. A Mormon preacher instead of the big city pollution got that label.
Polluting the environment, Ya, I'm a boater, love to cruse in sewage all day or have the one life I do have shortened because of poison air but Rep's are again labeled as dirty water dirty air people.
And the list goes on.
If we don't get everyone under one roof it's the end of this party and I think it will be time to move on.
