The medical profession has developed a plethora of warning signs that we ignore at our own peril. There are warning signs for cancer, for heart disease, for high blood pressure, for any number of potential problems. The concept here is simple: educate the public to help them live longer.
To use another analogy, automobiles have warning signs and indicators. Good drivers know the normal operating condition of their vehicles. They know how to recognize warning signs of impending trouble. Unusual noises, erratic performance, hesitation when accelerating tell drivers that something is not right. Automobiles with gauges provide indications of abnormal performance. And most drivers understand that the red lights on their dashboards indicate a catastrophic failure.
Political warning signs can be a bit more subtle, but they do exist. And like health warnings, ignoring the signs can cause serious injury, even death to a political party.

Your intro is relatively content free... save for the fact that you disapprove of how your Commander -in-Chief is doing things.
Both parties are committing suicide right now. You have the loony toon rats that have lost their collective minds. On the other hand you have Bush and the socialists in congress spending YOUR money, MY money, and our children's money like drunken sailors and not defending the border. Bush and the socialists are bankrupting this country. Medicare and social security will be the greatest threats the republic has ever seen in 10-20 years. It's going to be a trainwreck.
I've just about had it with all of the socialism. This country is turning into a third world country. The way things are going, China will have a more free market than we do, less socialism, and more freedom.
This is a good article to read:

Are you pleased with all of the socialist crap coming from this administration?
I'm not and plenty of others aren't either. The article is right. The GOP had better wake from it's coma or it will die in that state. And I am being optimistic in saying that it's in a coma. They may be awake and taking this path deliberately. Which is worse? Does it matter?
Well .. while pointing a finger at the GOP - there are 3 other fingers pointing back at the liberals. The democrat party has abdicated it's authority to a bunch of HATERS - they hate everything American - including the President.
The dem party was so thrilled to pull a fast one and form all these 527's - and now the 527's are telling the dems what to do - and the dems have to comply - because all the 527's are the dems' major supplier of funds to the party.
If Hillary belives she can win without acknowledging and adhearing to the HATERS policies - she is mistaken.
The dems better be looking in their own backyard instead of pointing fingers at the GOP.
"Will a defibrillator on the GOP help?"
If that defibrillator is losing the congress in '06 or the WH in '08, yes. Problem is we then have President Hitlery.
It's beginning to get to the point where there isn't much difference though.
I used to think third party voters were nuts. Not anymore.
Gee, you don't suppose this is why the GOP leadership seems deaf and blind to conservatives, do you? Once conservatives are assured they have NO candidate to vote for in 2008, there will be an independent conservative to insure a 3-way race so that somebody who can NEVER get 50% of the vote will be elected.
Your link does not lead to this article. You excerpt is not informative about the subject.
They are not asleep.. they placate democrats ON PURPOSE..
The GOP is a party of RINOs.. mostly blind but operate on a kind of bat'sonar, like sound bites.. You could call them Horned'bats.. or Rhinobats.. Moonbats are another animal altogether.. They are related and work together because Rhinobats are "Unite'ers not Divide'ers"... and are useful tools to Moonbats..

The GOP is trying to defeat the rats by beating them at their own game, by becoming socialist themselves.
Comment: They are politicians, in America, 2005 AD. This means they exist solely to be supported in their favorite vice addiction by the rest of us.
Jeez! Not this crap again!
"At some point we have to stop and tell the Republicans that the lesser evil isn't good enough, that they don't represent us and don't deserve our votes. I don't mean that we should refuse to support each and every Republican candidate for any office; some Republicans are real reformers and would restore a Christian social order if they had the opportunity.
But the Republican Party as a whole has forfeited our backing, and Bush is proof.
...It's fortunate that we now have a Constitution Party."
Some say the GOP died from the growth of a malignancy known in politicomedical circles as moderatus Republicani - a tiny invasive organism that strikes at the very heart of the body politic. Among its symptoms are spells of weakness, an irresistible urge to adopt the neo-socialist policies espoused by political opponents, to support abortion, and have a tendency to flee at the first sign of opposition.
Others, however, insist that, faced with a defty duplicitous president, a slew of highly dubious and contradictory poll results, and the prospect of getting a drubbing in the year 2000 elections, the party simply died of fright.
Whatever the cause, the party is dead. The corpse may be twitching - giving occasional false indications of life, and its survivors may continue to act as if it were still alive and refuse to give it a decent burial despite the odor of decomposition.
One Freeper responded...Let's face it, the GOP's been taken over by the so-called 'moderates,' who are nothing more and nothing less than everything Reagan had to overcome to make the Repiublicans into a party of the Right. It's sad. The GOP's just a senile old prostitute anymore: just _watch_ and listen_ to their awful convention. They were defending race quotas yesterday, as well as national health care 'for the children' and unlimited immigration. It felt like a Democrat convention; there was no principle left there at all. None.
The knee-jerk Republicans are telling us that Pat Buchanan's pulling less than 2% in the polls.
If this is so why are they in a state of near panic about Buchanan becoming the Reform Party nominee?
It's because both Democrats and Republicans are desperate to keep Pat Buchanan out of the race because if Buchanan is on the ballot as the Reform Party nominee, the American voters will have a real choice.
07/15/2002 So far, the GOP is not giving conservatives reasons to vote on November 5th [Free Republic]
One Freeper wrote: President Bush is out of step with a big chunk of the American People, and particulary within his own party, on immigration matters. If that costs him votes, whose fault is that?
In 2002 we added seats in the Senate. 11/2/2004 In the highest turnout since 1968, President Bush is re-elected with the largest number of votes of any Presidential candidate in U.S. history. Republicans win eight of the nine most competitive races and add 4 Republican seats to the Senate for a total of 55 and a 10 vote advantage over the rats. In the first loss by a Senate leader of either party since 1952, Republican John Thune defeated Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle. David Vitter becomes the first Republican senator from Louisiana since the 1880s. Republicans add 22 seats in the House. Minor-party candidates received about 1% of the vote, dropping from 3.5 percent in 2000. the lowest since 1988.
Don't you guys ever get tired of being wrong?
Well let's see we control more state level seats than the rats do. We control more Governor seats than the rats do. We control more Congressional seat than the rats do. We control more Senate seats than the rats do. We control the White House. Yeah I agree we should wahke up so we can control ALL OF THE COUNTRY FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.
