Ron Paul was an exception in his generation, one who truly stood for freedom and supported the Constitution. He was the one, old fart who could have stayed.

We got our young(er), hip Libertarian candidate in the form of Gary Johnson, but he didn't get the airtime he deserved.

I will most likely run on a Libertarian platform myself, with specific and mixed solutions for my region as well. I'm thinking mayor or city councilman right now.

I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.

"Give us your poor, your tired, your huddled masses longing to be free..."


The Democrats welcome them with open arms. The GOP spits on them.

That is why the GOP lost--they are exclusive, not inclusive.


IT's them librals who made slavery in the first place, they just pretend to like the Mexicans and the
Packistanys so they can get votes and give the money to accorns.

It will be like Hitler the socialism will come and the librals will burn the christians like the nazi did
back then.

yes, merge with the democratic party and become one big dictatorship.

where's hitler?

i guess america will just have to wait for the next cataclysmic orchestrated financial "collapse" for this merger to happen and see who the next two dictator perpetuus candidates are that the people will vote on.

And certainly not because this conservative was not conservative enough. He won because people voted out the hard line conservatives.


Actually, the GOP made gains in number of governorships, as well as in the house. Many local races nationwide went to republicans.

No GOP haters on here have addressed the regional victory the president won. Look at the numbers outside urban inner cities of Ohio, and tell me what that red is doing on the map, if the GOP didn't resonate with anybody.

Obama didn't exactly achieve a mandate.


Hello?!! The GOP lost 2 Senate seats to Democrats and made no gains but kept their majority in the House. They elected Clair Mc Claskill over Todd (legitimate rape) Akin, Wisconsins Tammy Baldwin is the first ever admittedly gay senator was elected, Allen West was defeated. Richard Murdock (rape pregnancies are a gift from God) was voted out and Joe Donnelly (normal) voted in, 2 mandates legalizing marijuana and one legalizing gay marriage and another mandate that prevents a ban on gay marriage - I call that a mandate. All of it.


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Republicans have some serious rebuilding ahead. The 2012 election was a stinging loss for the GOP in Minnesota, from the top of the ticket to the bottom. President Barack Obama claimed the state's 10 electoral votes on his way to a reelection victory. Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar won a lopsided reelection victory over Republican Kurt Bills. Republican Rep. Chip Cravaack was ousted in northern Minnesota, while Rep. Michele Bachmann narrowly won in her strongly Republican district. Republicans also lost control of both chambers of the state Legislature, and voters rejected constitutional amendments to ban gay marriage and require a photo ID for voting that had been signal accomplishments of the vanquished Republican majorities. For Democrats, the victory was sweeping and carries major policy ramifications. Read more: www.timesunion.com...



Democrats, bolstered by polling that shows that many voters blame the tea party for gridlock in Washington, had tried to pin the label on virtually every Republican incumbent and challenger. Voters gave a heave-ho Tuesday to a significant number of tea party-backed GOP freshmen who had helped their party secure control two years ago. They include Reps. Joe Walsh and Bobby Schilling of Illinois, Ann Marie Buerkle and Nan Hayworth of New York and Francisco Canseco of Texas.www.cnn.com...

And get rid of Rush as the spokesman and ersatz leader of the GOP he's not winning any converts.


As I was reading through the many articles and opinion pieces yesterday written from either outside the GOP or some very interesting pieces from the inside - I thought this very thing

It didn't happen overnight - it was a process. But he and others like him slowly but methodically poisoned their own well. It will take a while - but the true conservatives in this country need to rethink a few things - and speak out against this kind of - what should we call it?

Rhetoric?

I'm sure there's a better word

People are also forgetting the consequences of the Census in the House elections. A number of States went red in their Statehouses and got to redraw district maps giving the incumbent Republicans a distinct advantage. It is very unlikely that under the old maps or more fairly drawn maps that the result would turnout the same. I would recommend that Speaker Boehner takes that factor into his political calculations. The people are tired of the sabotage, and want results. They want to be represented reasonably and fairly the rest will take care of itself.

I am poor for gods sake, but that is just not true that Republicans don't welcome the poor, The Democrats use the poor and they keep them poor.
Red states more charitable

That's because they get the lion's share of the handouts from the federal government. It's a redistribution of wealth from the northern blue states, where the wealth in concentrated, to the South.

Ironic, don't you think, as well as hypocritical?

Um, it was the British who "made slavery." And most of those slaves went to Brazil, not America. I know, my family used to own some.

Learn some history. Some REAL history, not the censorship and re-writing the GOP would have you learn in school.

Did you star your own post? This kind of thinking is exactly what's wrong with the GOP.
