Nice post. Pretty much the way I see it. But there isn’t going to be a conservative President this go around unless Romney is not the Rupublican nominee after all. Hope this caucus thread can work. So far, it doesn’t seem to.
It can if it conveys actual information instead of a bunch of pie in the sky. The solution is real simple. Get and stay involved in Republican party politics. Begin at the town/local/precinct level and get as many other like minded people active with you. This is a ground up project, not a top down one. It isn't easy, it takes a lot of actual effort (beyond sitting behind a keyboard), it may require years of hard work to shift ones sphere of influence in the right direction, but it is the only thing that will actually help change things.
All this blather about starting new party's, voting for an existing 3rd party, writing in candidates, raging at the GOP establishment, etc, may feel good but it accomplishes exactly nothing. People do the same thing every 4 years and it will all come to nothing.
Want to make a difference? Get involved. Get involved in Republican party activities/politics at the local level and help push the party in a more conservative direction. You'd be surprised how few people actually get involved. Wonder why the establishment usually gets its way? Simple. Because too many good conservatives sit around bellyaching instead of actually doing something.
Quit with the fantasies of new party's, victorious 3rd party's, overthrowing the GOP at the convention, some White Knight to ride in steal all Romney's delegates, etc. None of this nonsense is going to happen. Get involved, stay involved, go to party meetings, use your influence to push the party to the right, get your friends and family involved, go to town council meetings, vote in all elections including primaries, etc. THAT is how you make an actual difference.
