"government programs for vulnerable Americans."

That means more affirmative action. More govt mandated persecution of white males.

Uh oh, here comes the cold sweat.

If Mr Cantor can smother the tea-bags as they sleep, he might save the party; but he is weak. Too, too weak.

You can have him. Without the party sticking to its conservative roots which has been missing for far to long, it is not worth saving. So take Cantor. Lots of false Repubs in the party anyway. Designed by the elitists as they would not be able to have their world government any other way.

The GOP does not have "conservative roots."

There are three subgroups, none who are true conservatives, in the GOP today.

The neo-conservatives are actually corporate guys in 'sheeps clothimng.' Represented by Supreme Court Justices who would vote to make a corporation a person, and allow corporate money to pollute our elections still dominate the party. They are notorious liars.

The 'religious right' call themselves 'social conservatives' but that too is a lie. Social conservatives are the pure libertarians, who are actually very few. Religious rightists are actually theocreats, using government to moralize their beliefs and using their beliefs to moralize government, and force others to worship their morals. They are modern day puritans, pests.

The tea-party Republicans are people who joined what they thought was a 'small government' movemenrt; but it is actulaay a front to reduce taxes for the rich and corporate sponsors. They believe that the tea-party is 'grass roots,' and won't believe that money is hosed over its leades byy very rich billionaires.

The closest to real conservatives are the libertarians not associated with the tea-party. I know some in local and state politics; but am unaware of any on the congress.

And your "elitists" run all three od the major groups in the GOP. Sorry.
