Republicans are leaning towards same sex marriage, where's those core values?

Politicians are like prostitutes, they will go where the money and the support comes from- it doesn't reflect what most individuals within the party feel.

Also, please study the California based case before you start supporting one of the democrat constituency groups and claim nationwide success. The will probably return the case back to the liberal 9th Circuit Court ruling which still overturns the will of the people of California. Again, proving that what the libs can't accomplish by popular support they will through judicial activism.

You just proved a very important point. Politicians can claim to support or not support any issue just to satisfy their constituents. I'm sure many democratic politicians don't support abortion but claim to just to get votes. So, I guess people from both parties are sell outs to their "belief" systems.

Yes, it is true, the republican party is soul searching. We have been beat up and put up wet lately, but one thing you can always count on is that the democrats will get lazy, and we will be back. The GOP has let Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Pat Robertson, Michele Bachmann types, although the fringe of the party in numbers; they have held a loud microphone. This has hurt us with the moderates and the Reagan democrats. Obama was elected the first time because of the Bush presidency, but the second time was all on the far right conservative wack jobs. When you have a presidential candidate like Rick Santorum talking about college being only for the elitist and the yuppies, that sends a bad message to the country. We should want our youth to be educated, and our older Americans to always strive for knowledge. This is the problem that I have with religion. They don't believe in science, and they don't see use in education. The result leads to Kentuckians not having the proper education to get jobs, but they don't see it that way and believe that Jesus will come down with a miracle and save us wellfare hillbillies. A number of republicans are starting to realize that we have got to stand up to the fringe, Bible thumpers in our party. This group doesn't want change; they want to get as close to Bible times as possible. This has to stop. I believe that we might be in trouble in 2016, but the end is comiing near for the Bible thumpers in the party. The GOP will be back. You can count on it.

Wow, there might be hope for your party yet if you can get more people with your attitude to talk on the party's behalf. You're right about things that the elitist say, it's a big turn off for average Americans.

The killer bees , Bush , Bunning and Bit err Mitch , are the reason I left the party. People became unemployed because of Bush and were treated like welfare rejects by the other two when they were unable to find new jobs.

The real reason the republican party will be back is because of the younger principled tea party republicans. Additionally, the reason that we will have a strong 2014 is because of the realities of ObamaCare will finally be kicking in and people will realize what medicaid looks like and the enjoyment of long lines, rude treatment and production quality healthcare. Because it will have such an impact there will be a number of Democrats who will decide to retire in the mean time rather than fight the voice of the people who will be starting to realize the disastrous impact it will have on their jobs and the economy.

The "Moderates" will certainly realize we have been right all along, the democrats will probably try to get disability somehow-those that haven't lost all their government jobs.

Why looky here:

For months, Breitbart News has noted that Senate Democrats face a difficult political terrain going into the 2014 midterm elections.->-> Democrats are defending 21 seats against the GOP's 14. While>> the GOP is favored in all of its races,->->Mitt Romney won seven states the Democrats are defending. The >>GOP needs a net gain of six seats to take control of the chamber. Recent retirements, coupled with the Senate's lurch to the left, have opened up more paths for the GOP to take control.

Likely GOP Pick-ups:>> South Dakota, West Virginia

**->->Long-time Senators Jay Rockefeller and Tim Johnson have announced their retirement from the two deeply-red states. These two Senators were uniquely able to win states that have been trending Republican for years. Mitt Romney won both by more than double digits.

Possible GOP Pick-ups: Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, North Carolina.

First-term Sens. Begich (AK) and Hagen (NC), along with Sens. Pryor (AR), Landrieu (LA) and Baucus (MT) are up for reelection. They last won elections in the Obama wave year, 2008. Mitt Romney won each of these states in 2012. With the exception of Landrieu, each of these Senators voted against the Senate budget plan that raised taxes and increased the national debt. They will likely all vote against gun control legislation next month.

Competitive GOP Pick-up Opportunities: Iowa, Michigan

->The retirements of Sens. Tom Harkin (IA) and Carl Levin (MI) dealt a serious blow to Senate Democrats. Both would have been the prohibitive favorites to win reelection next year. Their retirement, however, puts the two seats in play. Obama won both states handily in 2012, but each state votes differently in off-year elections. In 2010, Republicans swept offices in Michigan and Iowa. The same could happen in 2014, when the electorate is more conservative and Republican than Presidential years.

Horizon Opportunities: Minnesota, Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia
All of these states are ->represented by first-term Senators who won office while Obama was racking up large victory margins in their states. Each, however, is currently a favorite to win reelection.>> In the past month, however, Senate Democrats have embraced gun control,>> amnesty for illegal immigrants and a budget that adds $7 trillion to the debt and never achieves balance. The Senate is also expected to take up climate change later this year. Each of these positions are outside the mainstream views of the public and could erode these Senators support in their states.
>>Each of these Senators also provided the deciding vote on ObamaCare. As implementation of the unpopular law takes effect next year, public sentiment against these incumbents could turn quickly.
Depending on events, the GOP has an opportunity to flip control in at least 13 states. They need to win half of these to take control. If you think this is overly optimistic, consider how the political landscape looked in March, 2009.

You post your opinion. Not what's "true".
Your continued use of crazy talk like character assassination, covens, altars of sacrifice, etc... make you seem completely out of touch with reality. I almost worry about your mental health. Have you taken your meds today?
Finally, there's no need for us to bad mouth anyone when we have you here to do that for us. With all the name-calling and insult-throwing you do, you satisfy the bad mouth quota for everyone.

Wisdom, I ignore you because you cannot be bother to read responses anyway and because you cut/paste bomb every thread in an attempt to take over. As I was reading along I saw that you made some comment that you were awaiting a response from me. Here it is so try to read and understand this one. I am a republican, I have been registered republican my whole life. I have voted democrat the last couple of elections because there is more at stake in this nation than abortion and the republican leadership has led us to the economic crisis we are in now. I don't have a uterus, I have never had an abortion because I've never been pregnant. I am all for personal freedoms and government not micromanaging our lives so why would I be so hell bent on government telling a woman to have a child she doesn't/cannot raise when we already have so many? If you have decided your political affiliation on only 1 issue that is your stupid choice but don't expect me or anyone else to follow that idiocy.

really, richard cephalic I am not as stupid as you wish. Give it up- I have yet to have been proven a liar, a deceiver. You all just cannot stand an individual who walks the walk and talks the talk.

Why don't you espouse why you support the democrats- it must have a world of positives to have a person such as yourself in its corner.
