Well the bottom line as my post pointed out is America is changing and the republican party is not. It's not about welfare as some guy above thinks. When 60% of women, 70% of Asians and Latinos vote Democrat..republicans have a problem, we really aren't making more old white guys at the same rate. The teabaggers have ruined your party imo.
People on this forum paint the Democratic party as leftwing but in reality the far left is the base but it doesn't run the party and in fact their are moderates like Clinton was imo and blue dog Dems. In other word it's a bigger tent that represents different people.
As far as accusing Dems of being "divisive" are you kidding? Were you not paying attention during the republican debates...they bashed just about everyone except white older males including, women, hispanics, blacks, gays and on and on.
Have you seen a teabagger rally? A bunch of racist angry, older white people on government entitlements (SS) and socialized medicine (medicare).
I suggest you control the name calling if you want to continue posting.
Second, back up your claim with solid proof, and I don't mean Mitt's comment about the 47%, I mean where we insult women, hispanics, blacks, gays and on and on.

Is this a forum...where people can express their opinion? Your "moderation" said nothing about the guy who directly called me an "idiot" on this forum today. I suggest you "moderate" everyone not just those who have a different opinion then you. And you want "solid proof" that conservatives have insulted women, hispanics, blacks etc....really?? Are you paying any attention..how about the republican primary debates.
Bottom line it doesn't really matter what you think about this issue...in FACT 70% plus Hispanics, Asian, etc voted Democrat and they decided this election.
Earth to fake moderate guy who only moderates the few people on this forum who aren't parroting conservaive media apparently.
And yes I can back up everrything I say...that is if I'm allowed to. I noticed you didn't challenge anyone else who commented...and I have seen many racist comments on this forum and you take issue with "teabagger"?

First off you haven't been here long enough to get away with name calling, secondly, I'm a Tea party participant, so I take your insult personally.
And third, you claimed "I mean where we insult women, hispanics, blacks, gays and on and on".
On this forum when you make claims such as that and are challenged to back it up, you better do so or face a time out in the least.
And in conclusion, I own this forum, not just moderate it, you are here as a guest just like everyone else, if you can't follow simple rules of debate, you know where the exit is.

Now back up your crap, I'm waiting!

I'm kind of curious as to will the Libertarians learn anything, how did throwing your vote down the crapper or sitting home whining work out for you? I say that as a card carrying libertarian who will never again donate one thin dime to the Libertarian party, I will remain Libertarian in most of my ideals but the party can kiss my ass.
All a moot point because this was most likely the last election a conservative or common man will be able to have an effect in.
We passed the last exit yesterday, the best course now is take care of yourself and family and don't let politics obsess you.
the founding fathers built this and we gave it away.

If our founding fathers took that position, we'd still be part of the British Commonwealth.

Tell us what "WE", as Republicans, should now support?  Become Democrat Lite?

WHERE should we stand on the issues.

I supported Romney because I think that he knows what America needs.  I don't think he was a strong conservative though.  I do think that he really ought to have studied his opponent more and not have let anyone else do his deciding of what to run out on his platform.  Such as abortion.  He did flip flop on this one.  He should have just countered the accusations of his changing his mind and said, "Oh, I'm just evolving".
Of course there would have been the option of never changing his mind and saying "no" to abortion.  That's what I wanted him to say and I was disappointed in him that, all of a sudden, he was for it in certain instances.  That caused me to doubt my intentions to vote for him.  But, I would never have voted for Obama.  If the Republican Party is going to trot another victim in 2016, they need to start now because by the time that rolls around, they'll be hard pressed to find anyone who'll want the job.  Even with the abortion issue, I think Romney had the best perspective on the economy and jobs, even foreign policy than Obama.  Obama is mostly interested in social "mores".  We are on the slipperiest slope that we've ever been on
and our way just got extremely harder overnight.  This country will not be united ever again under the leadership that forces or mandates everything thru to make it's political statement. 

Conservatives need to be more so and leave no stone unturned in rooting out the corruption that we see in our corner of this world.

I agree. I won't join the Romney bashing. This was the fault of the People.  I believe there would have been a Renaissance in America exactly as we saw in 1980 if he were put into that office.

The next 4 years will be the beginning of the Dark Age for America as he seals the Socialist grip on American institutions (courts, all government institutions). EVERYTHING bad will go up, and everything good will be on the decline. There are ways to recover, but not unless we can do something with this current brainwashed generation.

Any ideas how we can do that?

You're welcome.  From where I sit, the R's DO have more of that than the D's do.  As examples I offer Rushbo, Ann Coulter, and others of that ilk.  I offer Mitch McConnell again.  But there is also Boehner, who, because he is NOT like that, is denounced as a RINO. So yes, I am fairly confident that R's are much more close minded than D's, as a group. 

I heard a guy on the radio saying he watched both conventions.  He said the R convention looked like a Klan rally. The D convention looked more like America looks.  He kind of had a point, too.


Yeah, the DNC really parodied America, as it is.  :angry:
 Squabbling over whether or not to invoke the message of Christ at the beginning of the convention to the point of taking a vote-, not once but three times until the moderator decided to let it stand as it always has.  Fundamentally changing America is not what a great deal of us want, yet we feel as if it is being pushed upon us against our better judgement.  Do you not see a problem with every executive decision that Obama makes?

Explain how rather than taking cheap shops.  This is what's wrong with the non-thinking left. They just don't reason deeply.  They really are emotionally driven.  Emotionally, they're 5 year-olds with the power to vote because of chronological years.

A Klan rally with people like Mia Love, Condi Rice, Suzanna Martinez, Nikki Haley, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz as speakers???  :blink:
