Aparently you missed the memo.
A segment of Free Republic has determined that Republicans, no matter how liberal they are, MUST be elected/put in to office.
And further, Principle does not matter. Winning matters. So as long as we get Chuck in there, any hell he wreaks is OK. Because he’s ‘one of ours’.
Well Norm, it is just normal for a temporarily powerless organization to divide up into meaningless factions. Psychologically, we feel rotten, because most of us went out and voted for Romney, The Mormon Milquetoast, even though we couldn't tell if the he was alive or dead, or just strangling in his cult underwear. Leave me alone! I'll get over it.Please.
Perhaps you could join my "segment." (I call it mine even though I am hardly the founder ... just a member coming out of the wilderness) I call our Band of Brothers and Sisters The GOP Death Watch. I and my cohorts seek a dignified and merciful end of the Grand Old Party if it goes away peaceably. The GOP has gone from a vigorous youth, through a prosperous middle age, a ripe maturity, and now is in the ugly throes of a drooling, blithering, incontinent senility.
Think about it. The Republican Party hasn't been around forever, and no one says it has to stay in existence. Of course, there is the small matter of what do we do in the meantime while the new party takes shape. How about we concentrate on local and state government under strong anti-federal governors who will send senators to DC who are elected by their legislatures, as is their right?
Yeah, the future Presidency will be at least a lot of the time in the hands of assklown Democrats. But think of the many cities who subdue assklown mayors with strong city councils. The way our female, latino, Afro-American, queer, and other minority demographics shape up in the big states means that anyone to the right of Barbara Streisand is not going to garner that state's electoral votes ... so ... fuggedabout'em. Keep the purse strings. Starve'em. Let'em riot.
Keep your fine mind off these sectarian issues, Come up with a name for the Republican Replacement Party .
hey ...that's not so bad is it?
