    Because it's true.

    The Leftists have done a fine job of doing that themselves.

    The marginalization of the GOP has begun as it devolves into a regional extremist party with no national presence. Thank God.
    13 Maine Republicans ditch the GOP, because it's not Conservative enough?

    Y'all might want to start worrying a little bit. Politicos don't make these decisions without doing a ****load of polling to justify the decision. They believe--right, or wrong--that their constituents are going to support this move.

    Whenever Republicans have the opportunity to shrink the size of government they always set records for the amount of structural deficits they create.

    Wars of choice, new government handouts to pharmaceuticals, arming terrorists, and legislating whom can marry whom based on religious and not legal reasons. I can safely say that over the past 30 years I've never seen Republicans attempt to shrink the size of the federal government. In fact judging by rhetoric coming out of Washington if Republicans had their way we'd be at war with Iran, Syria, Egypt, and would have expanded our wars in Afganistan and Iraq.

    It's distressing what having absolutely no integrity and allow you to accomplish.

    Have you actually read the article? The reason they left is because the GOP is becoming too moderate, and not standing up for it's belief structure. The Republican Party is not split down the middle because it's "too extreme", it's split down the middle because it's not extreme enough! Freedom IS extreme! Equality IS extreme! Liberty IS extreme!The pure American ideal is extreme! What do you think the people sitting back in Britain during the revolutionary war thought about America? They probably thought that the colonists were political extremists that were probably mentally ill! Hmm, what do people think about Libertarians and Tea Partiers? Oh yeah, they are looking for cures.

    I will agree that the republicans are turning democrat light. I guess your use of extreme had me confused. There is nothing extreme about standing up for the values this nation was won for.
