[quote=toddzgrrl02] I think the Republican party needs to really work on determining if it is a truly conservative party or if it is more moderate and stick with one thing. Granted, a truly conservative party will have the hardest time winning, unless there is another combo similar to McCain Palin where one is more middle ground and one is more conservative. [/quote] Part of the problem that I see with the Republican Party is the fact that it has lost its conservative voice. The moderates and independents have taken over the party front office and surely we saw this in the primaries with the ascendancy of John McCain. The future for the party may indeed look bleak but we can look forward to a time of rethinking and re-evaluation. This is the Reagan redux... or as Sean Hannity says, "Conservatism in exile"... for now.
