To borrow from Tocqueville, Republicans are great when Republicans are good. It’s not enough to win elections, or “have a seat at the table”. They must stand for something; and not just anything, but those core values of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; of an overarching national identity; of equal opportunity for all; and of a God-given freedom and human dignity for every person which cannot be compromised or legislated away. These are conservatism, and these are the values which make us who we are.

Read it and weep. All your talk about "The GOP must move to the middle" is a bunch of hokey.

You must have flunked math. Only about thirty five percent of likely voters are conservatives.

Like Barry Goldwater you seem to think that 35 percent of the voters can cast 51 percent of the votes. I think it was the day after the election in 1964 when Barry finally figured out 35 percent of the voters can't cast 51 percent of the vote.

Here in Ohio RINO Voinovich won in 2004 with 63 percent of the vote. According to the latest polls RINO DeWine will win with about 55 percent of the Vote. Conservative Blackwell will lose with 42 percent of the vote.

Read all the Tocqueville you want. But the only reading that counts are election returns. And it is next to impossible to re-elect a conservative running state wide in a left leaning state. Ask Rick Santorum how that works.. Specter can tell you as well.
