So you think we should follow a failed model (third party) rather than a politically successful model (liberals taking over the DNC from within)? No thanks.
Liberals have taken over the RNC from within, too.
If the conservatives desired to take over from within, they can start by refusing to vote for moderates. Absolute refusal no matter what.
Priority #1 is to discipline the GOP if they put up moderates and put down conservatives. This means refusing to vote for them EVEN if it helps democrats in the short term.
But as history shows, 95% of all Freepers rolled over and voted for Mitt Romney in the last election. You have a lot of work ahead of you.
I think we need a second party. The ruling Democrat-Republicans have got to go.
So you think we should follow a failed model (third party) rather than a politically successful model (liberals taking over the DNC from within)? No thanks.The difference, and it's a BIG one, is that the Democrat Party has always had liberals in positions of power. Enough to allow them to effect change in party rules that made the liberal takeover possible.
Republicans, OTOH, do everything in their power to shut conservatives out of leadership positions. The Party Platform debate at the last Convention, for example, turned into a conservative purge.
They've made it crystal clear that conservatives are no longer welcome in the Republican Party, and are willing to do whatever it takes to keep them out.
Except to vote.
