If you didn't read the article then you should. You may not agree with the strategy they are considering.

As hopeless at it appears now if the conservatives can manage to pick up a handful of Senate seats in 2014 everything changes. Two years after that we get another chance for a R in the White House.

The flip side is if the Dems pick up a handful of House seats in 2014 it's gonna get bad fast. Our options will then be secession or extinction.

The GOP has not lost it's way. We just have a powerful group of liberal career politicians resisting the younger, Tea Party and libertarian surge of new members.

The Media LOVES to put a spotlight on this and make the GOP appear to be in turmoil while ignoring the Democrats who who are in revolt in their own party.

for the GOP to survive, we'll need to continue the purge. If it dies, so do we.

The McCains, Roves and Grahams have GOT to go but they wont' go without a fight (or screaming like a little girl) \:D

Politico, always willing to help the GOP find smoother waters to sail.

Their advice, "Give us everything we want and you'll be loved"

Sand down the party’s rough edges. Pass education bills and immigration legislation. Stop screaming about red ink and spending too much. This one is going to be tough, since House Republicans haven’t been able to pass a bill called the Violence Against Woman Act for more than a year.
It’s a nagging problem for the party, whose main legislative agenda has been opposing President Barack Obama.

It was not surprising to read that for the GOP to survive, they have to become more like the Dems.

Which makes the GOP's survival somewhat pointless.

The Dems are successful because they are all nuts and stick together like a family. There is no way we Pubs are going to do that. You can't get a voter that believes in right to life compromise over to right to choose. Ain't gonna happen. That is just one example.

We do need change though. If we continue divided we are doomed to be a statistic in the history books.

they are not the problem. they are holding the basic ideals that have made this nation great- free enterprise, fiscal responsibility, strong national defense and christian values. the problem is 51% (and growing) only care about living an easy life on government handouts. we r screwed. national pride has been ravaged by a since of entitlement and the concept that it acceptable to enslave those who prosper.

And THIS, my friends, is the crux of the problem.

The (R) sheep keep voting for the same old tired, worn out, (R) Progressives, and keep on letting Karl Rove and his cronies tell us how to "fix" the Party.

The only way to "fix" it is to get rid of the Progressives that have infested it.

My position on this is in 2 parts;

1) The Republicans have already become very, very "like" the Democrats. The 'establishment' Republicans (Karl Rove, McCain, Boehner, Cantor, etc) are Progressives themselves, they are big-government 'moderates'--just not as Liberal as the Democrats.

2) Unless the Republican Party rids itself of this element, and actually makes peace with its Tea Party/Libertarian base, it might as well put a moving sign it its yard. The Republicans have to seperate themselves idealogically from the Democrats, and the only way to do this is to out the (D)'s as the Progressives they are, and lift themselves above it by embracing our Conservatism.

To fail is to die.
