    There is no civil war in the GOP. It iss just left wing talking points.

    Actually I think that there is considerable dissention among the ranks, perhaps not an outright war but very close to it. Some want smaller gov't spending (even including defense). Some want about the same spending just on different things. Some want to drop the social issue enforcement planks (allow SSM, abortion and marijuana to be legal). Some want to keep social issues intact, even strengthen those areas. Some want to play world policeman and crack down on Iran, NK and anyone else that "breaks bad". Some want to cut all foreign aid. Some want to save Israel even if they start a huge war. There are many diverse folks that claim to be in the party or tend to vote for republicant candidates quite often. The republicants are in dire need of expanding the base and must think very carefully how to accomplish that and very, very soon.

    I think they would do well to abandon all of the ridiculous holier than thou idiocy that they seem to think keeps the holy rollers in the fold.

    Concentrate on the fiscal stuff and let the gays marry each other. Stable homes generate more taxes and pay property taxes to support schools.

    As long as the issue is some hysterical biddy with her finger on the trigger saying that the Constitution is not a law, we're screwed.

    Right now we have a swindle going on in which the mass media has reneged on their responsibility to act as the Fourth Estate. As long as the stenographers in the press just fawn over the Democrat snake oil salesmen and ignore the actual situation, nobody knows what's going on and we just continue to spend more, create a bigger debt and lose more international prestige.

    It's time to focus on what's important and just sweep the rest aside.

    I don't know but being closer to 40 than 30 much less being an "impressionable kid", I take offense to that comment.


    So in the GOP's Civil War which side are you on?
    The vote as it is now is TeaPartiers and Libertarians 34 to RINO's and NeoCons 15.
    Let me reword: Since about 1/3 of the party wants a change it is going to change.
    The possible results are:
    1) A much smaller Tea/Lib party with RINO’s and NeoCons dropped out of a place to be.
    2) RINO’s and NeoCons regaining power and the Tea party having it’s demonstrations again.
    3) A party that still doesn’t know who it is.


    Code1211 just posted: It's time to focus on what's important and just sweep the rest aside.

    So who will be left?

    I do not believe that it is "coming apart". I believe that the Republican party is changing. There are certain people in the Republican party that are tired of the corruption and the hate that is trying to be protected by some of the old minded Republicans.

    I would urge you to look closely to how there is a divide between the Republican leadership. Although the words "Civil War" may be a bit extreme, people need to realize that the Republicans are not as one any longer.

    I think that there's a third side of the GOP that gov. Jindal describes as stupid. The side that thinks if women want comprehensive health care they're a bunch of sluts. The twice elected president of the United States isn't even eligible to run for office because he's not an American. Hip, hip hooray, the murder rate in Chicago is up, cause for celebration because that's Obama's home town. Obama is a Muslim but supports gay marriage and likes sitting down to a delicious meal of puppy and ice cold beer, all of which are prohibited under Islam. The guy absolutely loves terrorists; the use of drones to wipe them off the off the face if the earth should not even be up for discussion because all he wants to do is use them to sky on and kill Americans. Ever notice his middle name is Hussein and his last name rhymes with Osama? Wake up America! And he had nothing to do with getting Osama bin laden, that was the military. Etc. etc. etc. interestingly, it is this third side that gets associated with the tea arty traditionalists in the GOP, actually the entire GOP but mostly the tea party traditionalists.

    To those claiming there is no GOP civil war:

    Gingrich Calls Romney's 'Gift' Comments 'Insulting' - ABC News

    Jindal blasts Mitt Romney for blaming defeat on Obama

    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie: Not*my fault that Mitt Romney lost! - NY Daily News

    US presidential election 2012: Sarah Palin 'disappointed' by the turnout | Mail Online

    Ohio Senator Portman changes course on gay marriage - CSMonitor.com

    Senate debate over drones divides Republican Party - Los Angeles Times

    I would say this is about as close to a civil war as it gets. Only it's for party/ideological leadership. The Republicans can't even seem to agree on things they were all marching and beating their drums to a few years ago. They have only themselves to blame though. Following Nixon's Southern Strategy was a terrible idea in the long run. The GOP created a coalition of wealthy white protestants, poor Southerners and neoliberals. That was NEVER going to work out with a population that is only getting more socially progressive.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Re: The GOP Civil War: Choose a side.

    And dont forget how polotically correct he is while raining down hellfire missles on them from those scary drones. Maybe it is just where I live but this group seem to dominate the rest of the Republicnas. I honetstly have not talked to a reasonable Republicna for years. Then there is Rush...
