It doesn’t matter one bit if we do not have strong Republican/conservative leadership.

the Republics seem to be dumbfounded, people of disengaged minds.

How can any good leader emerge with such nerds at the top?

Right. You can't beat something with nothing.

If we relied on conservative 100 per centers (give me 100% of what I want or I'm sitting this one out) to come out to vote, it would matter. The fact is that a lot of these people end up voting for Ron Paul or staying home. So what ends up happening is that the GOP ends up moving left to try to appeal to the middle. A big chunk of which does pay taxes - even the ones who don't pay federal tax do have to worry about gas taxes and power bills going up. And these people are starting to see Great Leader Ogabe for who he is - a relentless tax-and-spender. Forget stem cells, abortion and other wedge issues - tax-and-spend is how we'll get Ogabe. With or without the support of the 100 per centers. (For the record, I agree with the 100 per centers' social positions, but don't agree that it's better to lose on 100% of our issues - by boycotting Republicans - than to win on only 50% of our issues).
