Your answer isn’t serious, either. It’s just a cynical catcall from the sidelines. But, a little too typical from the late, once-great Free Republic. At one time, real patriots actually spawned from here and did things. Now it’s gotten to be a lot more of a lineup of unpublished punditry.
The question, as is the condition of our nation, is one of serious nature and one of almost incalculable importance and failure to address it is one of consequences almost beyond our ability to comprehend. Why can’t anyone be serious?
Some think politics is Walmart. They can stroll in and select what they want pre-made. GOP reflects the majority of those active in the party. They are starting to fill now but precinct slots across the nation have been 30% to 70% unfilled for years. I do a webpage for my RTC. Its a small town but still, there are only a dozen or so Republicans who are really active. When I talk to Republican voters, I hear the same complaint over and over: town hall politics don't reflect their views, they don't like what is going on, its a bunch of insiders. What it is is frustrating and often boring. That is why they don't participate but sit on the sidelines and complain.
