    What republicans need to do is drop the RINO's and let the progressives adopt them..... Then the patirots need to join the libertarian party.... Of course if that were to occur most libertarians would have no problem calling themselves conservatives or republicans...

    That's what needs to happen.

    I suppose such an amend would have to start at an ideological level.

    That's not what they said. They are going to have fewer and cut out everyone else from having debates. The RNC is limiting exposure to a few select outlets.

    I'd prefer keeping libertarians isolated and out of public view.

    Heya Nick .....nah. Washington would be considered a RINO. Actually if anything.....we need to take a look at those that run around calling themselves Moderates.

    Saving money and being fiscally conservative is common sense. Which leaves those that try to identify as nothing but conservative socially and politically. Which truthfully. If they are really into conservatism. Then the busy lil worker bees only need to concentrate on work. Not the lime light. True conservatism isn't about grabbing the lime light. It would be working behind the scenes.

    Bottomline......Conservatives were never meant to Lead. Which is how it should be.

    So, we'd wind up with a RINO party (probably called something else) that would include most of the ex Republicans, a few more in the Libertarian Party, another party made up of far right, all with their share of the vote. I think the Democrats would applaud that idea.

    The Republican National Committee has approved a resolution to block two television networks from hosting GOP presidential primary debates.

    Friday's vote affirms RNC chairman Reince Priebus's (ryns PREE'-bus) threat against CNN and NBC unless the networks drop plans to air programs about possible Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton. The vote at the committee's summer meeting in Boston was unanimous.....snip~

    from voter suppression to media suppression ... What will they suppress next? And they think this helps them? really?

    I'm not a Democrat, but I'm good with that ... in fact, I'd go with Christy for the new GOP (although he may still be too smart and reasonable for them), Paul or Cruz for the Teabag Party, and Hillary for the Dems ... sounds good ...

    they need to have fewer primaries, but it's dumb (and I hope they follow through with it) to do this ... primary candidates have to find a way to argue without damaging each other for the presidential race against the other party - Gingrich: Vulture Capitalist Romney ... accurate as all hell, but coming from a Republican?
