We are pussy-footin' around the basic question here. The GOP must die. How do we engineer a dignified and honorable death, instead of a horrible, slow, internecine torture with cheering Democrats poised to take over for the rest of our lives?
Perhaps "Conservatives" should simply forget any hope of Federal power and concentrate on winning states, placing them under strong, anti-federal conservative governors and legislatures. What is "Strong?" A governor for example, who realizes that the states still have the power to select their senators by vote of state legislatures and will fight for it in court if necessary.
In re "Conservative" talk show hosts: wake TF up. These recycled Rock'n'Roll Disc Jockeys (Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, the despicable Schnitt, e.g.) are not leaders. They are not political philosophers. They are in many cases woefully uneducated radio geeks whose job it is to sell the believers Sleep Number Beds and Gold Bars, among other advertisers' products. Preaching to the choir (or niche market) is no way to build church membership. They leave major issues untouched. IMNSVHO, they all have "0" or minus effect on elections. In fact, IMNSVHO, they are at least partially responsible for turning the last fiasco into a personality contest rather than a hard-hitting policy-based campaign; not wise when your candidate has no personality. The Left has the media. We have hours of negative rants all day long.
Romney may have picked up on their constant negativity and anti-Obama posturing and ran a "I'm not Obama" campaign. Perhaps that's what led to the low white voter turn-out. Let's face it ... Those so-called "conservatives" who stayed home are just as ignorant as the newly discovered "Low-Info" voters. Dumb bastards the solid Democrat base may be, but they were smarter than the white millions of talk radio listeners who may have stayed on the couch for the election. That is, many of the "Low-Info" people apparently at least voted, (or were voted ... which is another story uncovered by the "conservative" hosts).
Why can't we use the radio to promote A PROGRAM, The PLAN to IMPLEMENT IT, and to discover the LEADER to make it clear and inspire citizen followers?
You ain't gonna find any of that on talk radio. It's all "How bad is Obama ... He's taking our guns ... Buy this gold bar... This Identity Protection Software!"
Just because two people ask you out doesn’t mean you have to go out with either...
I think you are definitely on to something here. The talk show hosts should be able to find the messages that do three things that are badly needed:
It is not too late to restore the Republic and with it our lost freedoms. Charles and David Koch cam muster the resources to do it. Is there anybody on this site who can get me in touch with the Kochs or are there enough concerned Freepers to make enough noise that the Kochs will hear our message?
