Its the only way people who care about small government and fiscal conservatism can send a message to the GOP. Empty rhetoric isn't going to cut it with me anymore.
    Why does the GOP care what you think? You're not a Republican - moderates and center-right IS the Republican Party.

    I will add this. The Republican base keeps wanting another Reagan, but what they need to win national elections again is another Eisenhower.

    What kills me is that moderate Republicans have always been able to accomplish more in regards to fiscal conservatism and reigning in the growth of government than the hardcore conservative Republicans. By every measure in terms of spending, Eisenhower (a moderate) was far more fiscally conservative in his results than Reagan (a conservative). This is true in the house and senate, and at the state level as well.

    Of course, Libertarians have had a total failing record in terms of actual governance and resulting fiscal conservatism. Ron Paul is quite a likable guy, but was a failure as a congressman.

    Nonsense. We were offered a choice between Obama and Obama-lite. Why put the republicant label on a big gov't moron when we can keep the demorat label on a bigger gov't moron? Many of the republicants that we now have in congressional office are likely dumb enough to try to help "fix" PPACA, just as they recently agreed to compromise and reduce the tiny spending "cuts" that came via sequestration - in the name of making nice to avoid getting hollered at by Obama.

    How did the "liberal" Huntsman as you say get elected governor in Utah ? Maybe it was his billionaire Daddy, who also yanked his son out of the 2012 primaries .How about Priebus running the primaries and debates ?

    I like Huntsman. I actually wrote the guy a campaign contribution when he announced his candidacy. His problem though was that he turned out to be a very dull guy and lackluster candidate. That said, I think had he been nominated he would probably have won.
