You’re right. Let’s do the third party. Let’s give 25% to that party, 25% to the RNC and hope the computers counting the votes malfunction and the DNC candidate loses.

You're right. Let's instead keep supporting a Republican National Committee that opposes conservatism and cannot win a national election.

There are two reasons to start a third party:

1) To bring the Republican Party to the realization that it will lose its power and its influence, which are the real reasons it exists, if it continues to ignore its base. If that leads to discussions about how to genuinely improve the Republican Party, great.

2) To supplant the Republican Party as the home of conservatives and conservative Democrats (i.e., the Reagan Coalition). If goal one is not reached, the Republican Party deserves to go the way of the Whigs.

Or, we could do it your way, keep nominating losers like John McCain and Mitt Romney, and keep losing national elections. Up to you.

I don’t think being insulting is the way to go. You know with certainty by my previous post nominating folks like McCain and Romney is not what I want; instead, there has to be a way to MAKE the RNC nominate Palin/West types...if you think they are like McCain or Romney then our conversation is done.
