Nothing will save the GOP..... it's an idea who's time has long passed. This is no longer the Grand Ole Party of Lincoln.

The GOP today is a collage of Marxist radical intent on destroying democracy and limiting American citizenship privileges.

Rather, try offering it to the bulk of the voters, not merely the traditional Republican elite. Rich people aren't that numerous and they EXPECT their goodies....poor people, just the opposite.
Dems are figuring this out...:)
The real key is the numbers. How many voters are there. By progressive numbers, only 1% have the money. Who cares how 1% vote. So rich people, voter wise, have no say. The rich already have lots of stuff, so who actually needs free stuff? That's is who we need to court, that is who will determine who is elected. So, you're right we need to offer free stuff to, as you say, the bulk of the voters. The Dems defintely have it figured it out. The down side is the middle pays, which doesn't seem to bother the Dems. Interesting how that works.

Rinsed Prius and the RNC can embrace illegal alien amnesty and queer marriage all they want. And he can finance his next RINO candidate with all the donations he receives from his new constituents. If this is the GOP's idea of a "makeover," they can kiss the conservatives goodbye. I quit giving them anything after they ran that idiot McCain in 2008.
Yep, they are falling into the same game as the libs, buy voters with lies and promises, go along to get along and don't stand on principle or stand on what made people want you in the first place. The Republican party came into being to stop slavery. The people we saved then turnned their backs on us, even after we passed the Civil Rights Act and the Voter Rights Acts for them. I guess we didn't know they wanted candy instead of rights.

Since 68% of the military vote conservative and it is an all volunteer military, you won't have to worry about soldiers enlisting to protect your sorry butt. The dancing on the graves is what Obama and Clinton did by lying about what happened. Obama still to this day has made not formal statment to congress after several request.

Sad but true. Not all blacks for sure, but too many use the easy crutch that uncle sugar loves to give out to buy votes.

How do you claim we are dancing on their graves by just wanting to know what happened and why. What are you afraid of, besides the truth. Call me when Obama releases the survivors so they can tell us their story.

You little childish faux news ploy is moronic. There are the number one for a reason, the people watch, the same is the reason MSNBC and CNN are reformating continually and firing people, they can't get anyone to watch your idiotic rants other than other idiots and they don't have the spendable income advertisers want.

The draw to Fux Snooze is the next bizarre story. Fox is plain old entertainment, the Flagship of all Conservative Entertainment Networks dedicated to propaganda and speculation.

Fox is the No.1 platform for Carnival Barkers and misinformation. Those people listening to the analysis on their Fox Business broadcast paid attention to the negative economic forecast promulgated by the paid shrills over on Fox and missed 4 years worth of market account rallies.

Fox and Fox Business pretty much played their loyal audience as sucker and idiots.

In other words, what I said was 100% true. Parrot on.
