Wow, Pat Caddell was great!
How can we rid ourselves of the plague of the GOPe, who are profitting at our expense?

First, you have to figure out who the sellouts are, who has the power. Then you have to be willing to let go of your political idols, which most people won’t do no matter how corrupt they are.
1) In all ways available to you, insist that the party run candidates who uphold the highest Constitutional values and definitions without reservation or compromise and shun those who do not.
2) Term limit Congress. With these lifetime career politicians, we are subjected to the tyranny of personalities who lock down either body, potentially for generations.
Bill Gates wants us to surrender to tyranny and let obama (or Bush or any other Prez) just have their way to overcome a gridlocked Congress to move things forward and get things done. (Stick with what you know, Software Bill, and keep that blue flag of death to yourself.)
Better to fight this tyranny of power within the hierarchy of government where the roadblocks really are and term limit these potential dictators along with the kingdoms they can create during a lifetime in power.
3) Demand that Republican primary elections be closed to any who aren't registered Republicans.
