The GOP has 3 branch majorities in half the states with democrats having the same in about half as many.

Not at the POTUS level I don’t think. At least not as long as low-information voters keep turning out en-masse to vote for the candidate they believe “cares the most about me”.

RE :”The challenge for Republicans is to convince the American people that the government isn't magic, and that all of its money is your money, its debts your debts. I don't think the GOP is doomed, but America might be if Americans remained unconvinced too much longer. “

How does that help the national Republican party?

This is different than the winning messsage :
Anyone rich is a job creator and you benefit from him paying less taxes, but its OK if you pay more taxes like FICA or if no tax bill was passed at the end of the year, because you are not a ‘job creator’”

OK, I am para-phasing and interpolating here but I guarentee that is what many voters heard them say in actions.

Obama staked out the 'middle class tax cut' issue and pre-empted the 'your money' part.

The author should have addressed how the GOP should handle these specifically in his recommendation.

Not as long as the Stoooopid Party lets the lib dims get away with voter fraud...
The challenge for the local conservatives in each state is to push for picture voter ID, no more winner-take-all electoral college points and closed primaries...to start with. Crickets coming from the RNC.

VA just punted on the electoral college apportionment...damn!

I think a small part if this is the vote fraud aspect. Not saying that’s the only reason why Romney lost but in the bigger picture, the fraud perpetrated by the Democrat party and their operatives would be way too difficult across all the races at the Federal, State, and local level. They have chosen to concentrate their efforts on the “big prize”... the presidency. Only way to beat that is to overwhelm their cheating numbers with real voters that are sold on what you are offering.
