Dwight Eisenhower was an independent, not a Republican.<quoted text>
First off Carol many of these groups especially Tea Party groups aren't conservatives. Barry Goldwater was a conservative as was Everett Dirksen, Jack Kemp Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower and Bob Dole. The current crop in the house like Erik Cantor, Paul Ryan, Louis Gomert and Michelle Bachman are radical right wingers. Testimony has already established that the employees in the Cincinnati office overwhelmed with 501 applications sought some way to separate the wheat from the chaff.
And yes we do need to fear these shadowy right wing organizations that want to turn this country into a corporate plutocracy. They want to reduce the American workforce to wage slaves solely to line their own already bulging pockets. They use fools like you, pandering to your irrational fears and bigotry to further their ends.
Everett Dirksen and Bob Dole were good men, middle-of-the-road Republicans, but unfortunately content to go along with Democrats as a permanent minority. Just like McCain and Romney.
