No. There are only two reasons. Not a "variety". Confusion (stupidty, ignorance, etc) or Cowardice. Take your pick.
Like it or not, that is the group that ultimately decides elections.
But even confused or cowards don't want confused or cowardly leaders.
That's not saying a conservative can't win, only that a conservative also needs moderate support to win.
Which is exactly how Ronald Reagan won in a landslide. He backed the working man. Today, the GOP CFR clan appears to be the enemy of that man and woman.
Reagan won because Anderson split the dem vote with Carter.
GWB won because Nader calved off enough of Gore's votes to make a difference in several key states.
In other words in two elections the left split their vote with a third party candidate and ushered in the Reagan and Bush revolutions...exactly what you're planning on doing, in reverse, but neither do you see or are willing to admit it.
Is it just me or have IQ's on FR dropped precipitously?
