Another BIG TENT moderate.....when the GOP surrenders the social issues, they’ve given up much of their platform and the distinctions between our choices is blurred. Run on socially conservative issues and people turn out to vote. When both parties run on the DUmocrat platform, people stay home and the Commiecrats win.
Social conservatives are not providing most of the votes or platform issues, conservatives are. Theres a place for social conservativism in the primary and general. Out in front isnt necessary, or probably even wise.
If the party needs a total disaster to finally liberate itself from the ideas that Santorum represents, so be it. I am prepared to accept the consequences.
