Democrats are beyond stupid and immoral beyond comprehension. I'll take the republicans with all their little flaws over the stupid communist idiot undereducated (did I say COMMUNIST)liberals. Especially after Obama f----d up Benghazi.

Everything depends on the Media. If they go back to being News organizations instead of Pravda.........America will survive Pelosi's Progressive Nightmare.

I wish I could remember the screen name of the poster who put it so succinctly and perfectly, in responding to the GOP's attempts to re-brand itself:

"How do you re-brand hate?"

(If that poster happens to see this, tell me your monicker, and I'll be glad to credit you.)

Here's a hint-

It not the messenger, but rather the message.

Until the GOPasaurs figure out that simple little fact, they'll keep losing.

Nohing wrong with white males.

But "social conservatives" ought be called by their true, political title" THEOCRATS.

The GOP took them in, as part of Nixon's racist 'southern Strategy;' and they can throw them out. But they won't.
These THEOCRATS are like cancer. They would rather kill the host. And should they ever get real power, they will kill the host.

Nixon made a deal with the Devil, and a deal's deal.

If the GOP still had rational politicians like Eisenhower and Dirksen they may have a chance! As long as they are stuck with loony teabaggers and 'religious' nuts they will continue to lose elections.

America has changed forever. Repubs can't save us from ourselves. There is no place for Patriots or parents who care about leaving something worth having to their children in Obama Nation.

Yet it is interesting that it is primarily the Republican party that seems to attract these wackos. There must be an affinity there somewhere. Perhaps the common threads are bigotry and paranoia.

I can think of a synonym for "social conservative" that my be even more apt - BIGOT.

Not untrue; but I was trying not to lump the "religious right" in with the 'tea-bag/Klanner' componants.

It can't be helped. There's a lot of overlap.

I don't know about you, but I'd be curious to hear how a "social conservative" defines that phrase.
