    [QUOTE=M21;260035

    Why can't the GOP keep those jobs here and create true green jobs? We put a man on the moon, but can't build a car that gets any better mileage than we have now. What about real alternatives that get us OFF of foriegn oil? Isn't that REAL national security? Why isn't THIS part of the GOP message? Do you think the Dems invented Ethanol? Who do you think that was?



    Where do you live that getting natural gas is a problem or that it is prohibtively expensive. Where I live many have trucks powered by natural gas.[/QUOTE]

    Ask the GOP what. How about let's ask Jimmy Carter who stated that in xx number of years that we would be weaned from foreign oil. You either have a short memory or too young to remember that speech.

    What alternatives do you speak of. Ethanol, wind, solar, electric, etc are pipe dreams in your so called real alternatives to making much of a dent/reduction in the importation of foreign oil. FYI, by products of oil number in the hundreds. The computer you looking at has componets of oil in it.

    I live in the state where most of the natural gas flows thru. Pickens wants to convert thousands of trucks on the road to natural gas. That will not happen because of the dumb asses in DC because of their hatred of the oil companies. Natural gas is the way to go but Env. kooks want green energy rather than that evil stuff that comes out of the ground. So I guess you will have to ask your legislator for all your WHY, WHY questions.

    So you're smacking people about asking them why you should vote for Candidate XYZ and what his ideas are but when I ask you what should bring me back to the GOP you draw a blank?

    I should stick with the GOP becasue they suck less than the other guys? Palin (aka Sean Hannity in drag) may be a great cheerleaderbut it's going to take REAL ideas to bring me back.

    I am not smacking anyone with your stupid candidate XYZ anology. Vote for who you want. I am not a GOP lover; I am a conservative. Like I said, all those WHY, WHY, WHY questions should be directed at GOP legislators. Do you understand? It appears, you are the one drawing a blank.

    I still believe in trying to work from inside the Republican party to change things. That's how I've tried to work, but my patience is growing thinner every year.
    Right now the establishment ideas of the Republicans are still very much alive and well in the "borrow and spend" philosophy and to keep every military body as they can in as many foreign countries as people can name. Then you have the unique idea of the other party of tax and spend.
    In my estimation 2012 is still a crap shoot and they haven't seemed to have learned a darn thing.

    I thought there be a coup in the party after this last Presidential debacle. When they put up Michael Steele to "lead" the party I realized it was just the Same Stuff Different Day.

    I've heard rumor of a new "Contract with America". We'll see.....

    Hey, I am at the tipping point also. If the Repubs win the Presidency and the Congress in 2012 and do not turn this ship around, I will join the Tea Party/3rd party movement and say screw the Repubs.

    I hear talking heads in the Repub party and most of them do not understand the difference between slowing the rate of government and doing surgery on it. Agencies need to be eliminated,and thousands of federal employees need to get the axe along with a bunch of programs.

    If the Repubs can not right the ship after taking control, I might leave the US; thousands are leaving every year and it is only going to increase. In the 4th quarter of 2009, 500 Americans renounced their citizenship. That was more than the previous 2 years in a 3 month span. I don't think I would want to shut that barn door in order to just avoid paying Fed Inc. taxes. Getting a second passport would be a wise move though.
