    France used the developement of the EEC and later the EU to exercise its diplomatic muscle and have international influence through controlling Europe. When the EU started expanding after the Soviet Union collapsed, France lost that influence. Poland is a growing power within the EU and has an oppositional voice to France's interests.

    At least, that's the way I see it.

    Well you are wrong on almost all fronts. Not to mention this is off topic. IF you want to discuss it then start a thread and I will join.

    My Poll shows Conservatives are surging. More claim Conservatism than moderate or liberal.

    Apples and Oranges. If you look at polls who ask "are you a Republican, Democrat, Independent" then the last one I saw, showed only 21% said they were Republican.

    Plus the question asked in the poll you reference is at best very fluid. A person might think he or she is a "conservative" when asked the question but might not be when he or she is asked in more detail. Its like the old cola test.. ask a person what cola they prefer, a large portion will say Coca Cola, but put them under a blind taste test, Pepsi wins in a majority of cases.

    So while the poll might show that people think they are more conservative, it does not mean that they will vote with the Republican party or say they are Republicans.

    Hogwash to the OP ...

    There may be some angst among "certain" republicans in that "certain" mold, but not among Reagan republicans. Frankly, what needs to happen before we can move forward is a cleansing of sorts. The RINO's need to go! We need a leader who can articulate in an effective way, opposing arguments that ascribe conservative principles on issues like illegal immigration, abortion, gay marriage.. - rinse repeat. Let's take gay marriage as an example. All too aften I see even hard-core republican's FAIL, when confronted with the rhetoric from the left. As if to appeal to some unknown electorate that has been upheld, and administered by the leftest MSM. What they don't realize, and as CA recently showed us, is that, even democrats, mainstream as they may all initially be, are against such nonesense.

    What are they afraid of exactly? What, 2 million gay American's, and maybe 20% of the liberal American left? It's not like they're ever going to get those votes anyway, so what's the big deal? Stick to your guns, and integrity will win out among the contemporary American electorate.
