The Republican Party died last night and there will be no resurrection. The socialists have a firm grip on the mechanics of our government and are loading up their base for all future elections. I never will see a Republican president in my lifetime.

Take the time to read the comments from Lonsberry;s column on his website. Interesting.

The GoP died when it put forth a lame pro-abort "god-in-embryo" who embraced socialist healthcare...[IoW...it died last Early Spring]

Conservatives have just been in denial about all that...

So what did they do?...they seared the consciences of MILLIONS who for the FIRST time voted for a pro-abort RINO under the auspices of the lesser of two evils' crap...

What nonsense! The republican party supposedly “died” after 1932, 1964, 1974, 1992, and 2008.

Once again the party will need to be remade with new blood, the old leaders thrown out and new ones will rise up.

The senate remains in democrat hands but Lugar, Snowe and Brown are gone! Replaced by Flake, Fischer and Cruz.

We aren’t going to ever win again at the ballot box until we create new voters that understand freedom and individual responsibility. That won’t happen overnight and it won’t happen through government.

The liberals won this country by playing a long game. They pretended to be moderate and slowly took over many of our institutions outside of government, primarily academia and the media, but even some religious organizations. They spent the better part of the last forty years doing it.

Now they have generations of indoctrinated voters.

Conservatives need to understand we have to now do the same thing in reverse. We need to concentrate politically on local issues and on playing defense where we can. Outside of government, we need to start hiding our beliefs (like they did) going into the media and academia (like they did) and slowly turning things around.

As I said before, it won’t be quick...and it won’t be easy. But we have nearly a half century of socialism ingrained in the population that has to be stripped away and replaced.

The Republican party establishment believed you could take a Liberal candidate to beat a Marxist. What a colossal blunder.

Old uncle Joe is laughing his a$$ off in hell.

Perhaps we should all join the Democrat party and try to change it from within.

The GOP died a while ago, but has been a living corpse wandering around for a while now...

I guess the stench from the corruption is finally becoming evident.

The nation has changed, the values have been replaced, the demographics are different.

I don't believe that's the problem. The problem is the inside the beltway Repubs keep choosing our candidates for us, and they're always Rinos. The majority has given up, because they have no one to vote FOR. People are tired of voting "against" just to get a simpler version of a democrat.

Who here actually wanted Romney? Most here didn't want him, and my guess is a lot of people sat it out because he was was just like all the others - another Rino.
That's the Republicans problem. Give us someone we can actually, fully support next time.

Give the majority a voice! Give us a candidate we can happily vote FOR.

When Rush started his radio program, people freaked. His bosses thought no one would listen to him. To peoples surprise, there was half a country crying out for someone who'd speak for them, and Rush became the best loved radio host in the country, because he spoke for that silent majority. For once, people actually got to hear Rush say what they've been thinking and feeling for generations.

More specifically, America wants liberal. It wants an activist, empowered government, imposing fairness and supporting entitlement.

There is much truth in your article. The statement above is only partly true. There is a huge swath that love the big government, but a huge chunk of voters indicated sharing many of our beliefs of smaller government, too, but don't seem to be aware they are supporting the opposite. Many uninformed voters. They vote against their own preferred interests. They either like to be lied to or seem to only take one side's word to define their view. I see countless people online placing full blame on Republicans for obstructionism, and that is lie. Lot's of Americans are being bamboozled. Hopefully we don't face another flim-flam artist like Obama for awhile in elections.

As I look at more data, I have to conclude you are wrong.

Obama fell 15 million votes short of his 2008 totals, but Romney also fell 6 million short of McCain’s totals. I would have guessed that Romney got more votes than McCain, but I would have guessed way wrong.

Here in Arizona, voters overwhelming rejected extending a sales tax increase that was passed a few years back as a temporary measure. It wasn’t close, either - 65/35 split. This time, the “children” lost! Finally!

And a measure to protect someone who shoots a crook passed 80/20.

I wasn’t pro-Romney. I was ABO. And apparently, regardless of what the GOP-E says, that isn’t enough. It was nice to see that Mitt truly loves America, and I’d have voted for him on that basis alone in the end, but that isn’t enough to fire up the republican vote.

I'm much closer to the grave than to the cradle.Possibly much,*much* closer.The proud,sane,decent society that my parents' generation...and earlier generations...built has been replaced with an assisted suicide,ObamaPhone one.And that,I'm ashamed to say,is largely courtesy of *my* generation,the "baby boomers".Narcissistic,hedonistic and lazy we've been,and still are,we "boomers".And,sadly,it seems that our kids are at least as bad,if not worse.

My best years have been lived in a basically decent and "worthy" country.During my declining ones it looks like I'll have to learn Spanish,somehow learn how to become "disabled" and recognize that sodomy is "just another kind of love".And I'll have to learn how to wait six months to see a cancer specialist just like they do in Canada and Britain.

I just thank God that neither Osama Obama,Dirty Harry nor any of their pals will ever have to endure a similar kind of wait.

In a static world, I would tend to agree with this analysis.

However, there are several future wild card variables that are potentially paradigm-shifting; that we cannot predict how they might affect the dynamic in this country:

1. economic collapse
2. war (e.g., Israel attacks Iran; etc.)

STOP IT.

The media won.... not even Obama cared that much.

The media needs content to survive and grow and Romney wasn’t going to supply it.

Pain, suffering, confusion all feed the media machine. Even Rush, Sean, etc do much better when the dems are in power.

How about this strategy: I think the Tea Party should join with the dems and take over their agenda...

No more media for me.... I’d rather start smoking again, it was probably healthier.

They will never see its fulfillment because the world we live in does not have that long.
