This is the problem that moderates have.
Its all about the big tent. Its all about being inclusive no matter WHAT freakish ideals the prospective participants bring.
The bottom line is that the party is already there, but they are withholding the vote for lack of a comprehensive and unwavering foundation within the party.
How can the party support small government, yet elect the type who will pay off friends in business as is done with bail outs, and MEDC type mechanisms? How can one be anti abortion, or Pro-freedom and in good conscience NOT fight socialized medicine in ANY FORM? How can a Republican support welfare and claim to be pro family?
The point is, that the party is all over the place right now, and outliers gave the certified nominee a great big F-U.
On this site, we warned the leadership of the GOP as it was happening.
They paid no attention, and one noted player who vacillates based on his personal outside interests was expunged.
You have much to learn. You are involved, but if you follow the examples of the Lennox philosophy or those who preach that to be OK, you must be a member of the GOP 'club', then you will always be fighting those who act on principle over party.
