    What you are failing to understand is that it isn't the base that determines the general election....it is moderates and independents. Perry would definitely carry his base, but moderates and independents will never support Perry's extremist agenda.

    What you're failing to see is that many of us no longer look at elections as the means to change things. liblady might want to be more concerned about the "shoot first" mentality of her neighbors rather than the POTUS.

    Well...that's good...as long as you recognize that you are conceding the Presidential election. What hope do you have of changing anything if you "stick to your guns" and go down in defeat? Perry can stick to his guns all that he wants and while he may gain the respect of the teabaggers, he will destroy any hope of the GOP regaining the whitehouse.

    Sounds like extortion to me. Give me what I want politically or I will threaten violence against you.

    I gave up on the GOP long ago after realizing that real change doesn't stand a chance in the party. I suggest conservatives and liberals alike consider voting for the real party of smaller government and personal freedom: the Libertarian Party... as long as you don't mind a rather dismal chance of success. The two party system's chokehold on US politics is the biggest problem IMHO. I just can't bring myself to vote for the lesser of two evils, as it is still by definition an endorsement of evil. My district is >85% Democrat anyway...

    No. More like a prediction. This country hasn't been "United" in a century and a half. Eventually that's going to lead some people to pick up their rifles and do something about it again. I get the feeling itjust might happen within my lifespan. Either that or we are going to end up with two countries on this land, like we should have in 1860.
