I'm waiting for the GOP response that the people are either stupid or brainwashed by the media or Obama. They'll never admit they have a problem.

No, not stupid or brainwashed just slipping into moral and social decay with their so-called progressive ideas. I'd rather become extinct than to slip into the abyss with them and have to live to see what this country will become in the future.

Hope I don't regret this but.......... what "progressive" ideas are you referring to?
What are the "wholesome alternatives" that you see in the Party Of Wall Street?

Fox media (GOP TV) is everywhere, and unfortunately many people see them as "news".
In other words, the true corporate republican party is not representative of most Americans, and that would come to light if republicans were to stop lying about themselves. They cannot afford to come clean.
Barack Obama is a "shill for Wall Street." Is there any particular reason you fail to mention this in your post?

How many links do you need me to provide you to show you that BHO is no different than any other corrupt President to grace the White House?

Well, my goodness, if he's no different then why don't you back off? Why don't you worship at his feet like you did Bush?

Both parties are out of touch with the American people. The GOP does need to change though. Like maybe embracing more a libertarian concept. Part of the problem with the GOP is they run candidates that are very odd...I guess that's the word I am looking for. Even people in my family who have voted GOP for years didn't want to vote for Richard Mourdock here in Indiana. My mom actually voted libertarian because she didn't want to vote for him because of some of things he said.

The GOP could show more compassion toward hispanics by passing a compassionate immigration reform. They need to also get the message out to women that it will empower them to get off assistance and get jobs. No one is empowered who lives off the government, but a lot of women don't fully understand this. Maybe to reach more women, they could be a little more compassionate. Most women are hearing that GOP wants to get rid of bennies and leave them out in the cold with nothing. What need is a program that weans people off benefits.

I also think Mitt was a poor candidate. Someone like Marco Rubio would make a better candidate.

I didn't say I had a problem with it. I simply explained to you how the GOP still controls the house while getting a million less votes nationally.
