Actually the ‘fact’ is that the only way you get ‘someone who can run across party lines’ is by compromising conservatism to make it ‘not conservatism’ so that it’s palletable to liberals.
Winning with a liberal is winning with a liberal regardless of what political party they claim as their own. Which is to say, exactly where we are today. If you love where we are, do what you have been and get ready to lose your toys when your political choices come and strip you of them for the greater good. If not, then do something different.
PS: you already lost marriage, a straight military and healthcare to your political choices. Lets see what your pain threshold is.
Sasparilla, the above is NOT hypothetical. It is a reality that is difficult to accept, that's all. It was a long time before I had the guts to accept it.
You lack the guts to accept it now. Maybe later you'll find the courage. I hope so.
Explain yourself. What did Reagan “compromise” to make himself palatable to Liberals? One of the biggest landslides in history?
