Permanant tax cuts?
Gov downsizing?
Gun Control repeals?
INS reform/privatization? IRS reform/dissolution? BATFE reform?
Spending cuts?


All these seem like a great way to bolster support before mid-terms is their a chance?

that's what the GOP is counting on.

And all the people jumping out of the bushes like goblins saying "oooo! ooooo!! whaddya want -- Hillary for Prez? more gun control? socialized medicine? that's whatcha get if you don't vote GOP!!" are part of the problem.

Your optimism is reassuring. Bombing Iran alone would help greatly.

I'm just being realistic. I don't put a lot of faith in politicians who say "well, we've let 12 million Mexicans in here illegally and not done a DAMN thing to stop them, therefore the best thing to do is -- I KNOW I KNOW, GRANT THEM AMNESTY!" They've had 6 years to enact a true conservative agenda, and instead they've passed more big government big spending liberal welfare plans.

And pulling our collective nuts from the fire of two troubled occupations by starting a war with yet another country ain't likely to get the electorate behind the Prez. When you're in a hole, step 1 is to stop digging.

Our media is not exactly third party friendly and the ignoorant sheep(average voter) are too lazy to research. Not helped by the fact the libertarians put forth anti-war crackpots like Badnarik.

Yep, yep. And yep. I'm about to cancel my monthly contribution to the LP and send it to the Minutemen instead. LP should focus on advising local candidates and on preserving libertarian principles instead of wasting energy on futile Presidential runs. And they should dump the open borders plank.

I didn't say occupy either. I'm sure Iran and the rest of the world would consider air and naval strikes as acts of armed aggression tantamount to war.

The border problem will never change Dim/GOP/Libertarian does not matter the average voter will never be satisfied. INS reform or privatization is the best thing we could hope for. I personally like letting a practical effective company to run it as opposed to a bloated gov bereaucrasy of overpayed unmotivated Gov stiffs.

Russias not dumb enough to dance and the Chinese would invade first if we were not in the way. The israelis are not growing thier balls back either, centrist parties accomplish nothing.

Keep dreaming. Republicans always get in office and get power, then proceed to act like pussies.

Anyone care to clarify why historicly?

Ah, Republicans
The party that says government doesn't work, and then they get elected and prove it.
Fiscal conservatives who expand the national debt.
Anti-socialists who passed that F'd up Medicare Drug benefit
Pro defense obviously means closing VA hospitals while creating massive amounts of new vets
(I guess the elderly vote more than veterans.)

Anything realistic at this point would probably be "too little; too late". I think the proper strategy is to buy as many pre-ban (AWB version 2.0) components as possible.

I'm not sure many people give a poop about tax cuts (though they should). I'm fairly certain relatively few really care about bombing Iran. Lady Libtard and Joe Sixpack are generally only interested in what the .gov can do for them and will vote accordingly. I think the best, realistically, the repubs can do is John McCain.

Like I said, buy stuff now.

I hope I'm wrong.

Anything that they try to accomplish is met with complaints from SOMEBODY
They find it much easier to get re-elected(their #1 job) if they get fewer complaints

Well, gay marriage is what pulled Bush ahead last election.
Guess the GOP will have to find something else to feel scandalized about.
I don't know who complains about the morals of the west more, Muslims or Republicans.

Fuck the Republicans.

About the same as a snowball in hell. Long time ago when I used to listen to Rush when driving across state, he said something like 'The democrats can't be anything but paritsan and the republicans couldn't be partisan if their lives depended on it.' They control both houses and the whitehouse and I doubt if they could find their way out of a paper bag if both ends were open.
