    Well that sounds like the gameplan if we want more democrats in office, we will see where the future takes us. I think you are pointing out more what they are more likely to do than what they need to do.

    Disney, I'm trying to keep a serious conversation here. Please stop trolling, no matter how well intended.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    You fellows persist in mis-labeling the Republicans, the GOP and Conservative leaders.

    Limbaugh is a staunch Conservative.

    It's like you are calling non-fat milk, "regular." Or calling buttermilk, "2%."

    Limbaugh led the fight against illegal aliens, opposed Medicare, opposed spending, he came to the aid of Republicans who were against the spending, he opposed the idea that we were more friendly with our enemies than our friends, he opposed steel tariffs, campaign finance reform, the education bill and the TARP bailout bill. He opposes Socialism and supports Capitalism. He supports tax cuts to energize and grow the economy, the only way to get us out of this mess.

    I don't think parties should have "wings" at all. A person doesn't become a Republican unless that person thinks that his or her own unique reason for joining is enough justification for looking past the parts of the platform which he or she disagrees with. You cannot so easily separate these people into two distinct categories.

    Or, more concisely, if the Republican Party didn't allow moderates in, I'd be out of a party.
