Not to mention the fact that the candidate was picked from the top down in some sort of smoky-backroom deal probably a full year prior to the convention, then systematically rammed down the throats of the party grassroots... that’s no way to win friends.

There was no smokey backroom - what happened was that five conservatives ran in the primary, dividing the conservative vote and creating vicious infights between their supporters. The same thing happened in Missouri - Akin only won because two Tea Party candidates entered the primary.

I know that de-centralization is a core ideal of conservatism, but we sometimes go too far - we have to buckle down and agree on single candidates.

Um, I don’t believe it happened that way.

Mitt Romney bought the GOPe. I suspect with careful scrutiny we’ll find he financially supported a great many RINOS through money given to the GOPe. And I believe if you look very closely, we will see the Bush family’s finger prints all over the transactions as well.

Wrong—one can not defeat a foe by becoming like them. We keep trying to do this—and we will continue to lose. No future in Communist-Light.
