I feel the same way. The impending demise of the GOP is reflective of that of America as we know it.
Remember how tall we stood when Reagan led the country for those eight great years? What a blessing it is to have experienced that wonderful era. God bless President Reagan for that final brilliance as the Shining City on a Hill. We were never the same once he left office.
But what a great run we had...
Will never forget Reagan. I was so proud to be a republican and so proud of America..we only have the memory now. It is the end of an era. I am losing faith.
It started with George H.W. reverting to moderate default position after Reagan left. Then in 2000, the Repubican Elite and Media telling us that sonny boy, “W”, was to be the coronated one next, no questions asked, thank you very much. Then they have since tried to shove Jeb Bush down our throats, Romney is just a variation of that. Yep, the Republican Party quite frankly has it within their capability of committing abject political suicide over these moderate nominees who will beat the crap out of conservatives in the primaries and then go all velvet glove on Democrat Dictators in the general (”Me Too!”), so as to not offfffffffffffend anyone. We see where that got us with McCain, and his/their handcuffing of Sarah Palin.
