We're going to have to frame out arguments differently somehow. Nobody cares whether something's Constitutional anymore. References to God and Country don't seem to be working for the masses. People want to be reassured that you won't be taking anything from them, or better yet- giving more away.
Maybe there's a better way to say, "You won't be getting any more freebies if we don't fix this economy."
Maybe we can concede that, "Yes, the rich should be paying more. They ARE paying more, and we're going to keep it that way."
How about we state that, "Government has no place telling you who you can love, how you live, or what you do with your body. That being said, we owe it to each other as good neighbors to not take from others what we cannot provide for ourselves."
Just some ideas... we need to reframe our platform to be more populist, yet still conservative."Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.
It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." -- John Adams

And the spineless, sniveling republican turds in DC aren't trying to stop Bronco Bama and the liberal freight train at all, they're just hanging on to the last car giving a half hearted effort to slow it down. For example, if the DC libs were to say "let's burn down all the buildings in town!" the repub response would be, "well, can we just do a couple a year for the next few years, please? sniff, sniff....."
It's game over.

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

In the past, before mass media, the measure of a candidate was taken by the words they wrote or spoke and were written down. Today that's hard to do, because they all speak in the same trite platitudes and cliches.

I think he ran a better campaign than McCain did.
Picked a better VP as well.
How can you expect to get to know someone's true nature on the TV or in little sound bytes in ads? It's impossible.
You admitted you were surprised when you saw Romney in a candid moment, and you were most likely surprised because you began to believe the picture the media was painting of him.
Pandering Phony Mitt:
"Strange things are happening to me down south... I love grits"
"I love Detroit, my wife owns a couple of Cadillacs."
"I love this state, the trees are the right height."
"I'm a huge fan of NASCAR. I have some friends who are NASCAR team owners.
Crazy Mr Burns Mitt:
"Corporations are people"
"I'm not concerned about the very poor"
"Middle income is $250,000 and less"
"I'm also unemployed."
Every-time I heard one of these, in the original context, I /facepalmed.
Today that's hard to do, because they all speak in the same trite platitudes and cliches.

I personally would be entertained by watching the idiots who voted for him not knowing his true agenda should this happen. Has the writing ever been on the wall in such big, bold letters that said "THIS GUY HATES AMERICA. THIS GUY KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT CREATING JOBS. THIS GUY IS GOING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY AND PROBABLY GET US ALL KILLED".
It was obvious to me in 2007. And these guys voted him in twice, LOL.

The red states seriously need to consider severing ties with the Bronco Bama regime if any semblance of the republic is to remain and let the blue states have their communist utopia."The beauty of the Second Amendment is that you won't need it until they try to take it away."---Thomas Jefferson

Maybe I just don't know how to express it right...but it just seems like America bought into the "only Romney can beat Obama" meme pushed by the establishment.
Ok...we did that...and look what it got us.
Next time (hopefully) we'll stick with a true Conservative...someone like Reagan and not get scared off by the so called "experts".
Because like Rush also said...and I'm paraphrasing full throated Conservatism has yet to be tried yet in an election.In Memory Of My Friend 1st Sgt. Tim Millsap A Co, 70th Eng. Bn. 3rd Bde 1st AD...K.I.A. 25 April 2005

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
