There is nothing more dangerous to the liberty of Man than a Government or a Religion seizing upon the strings of an overdeveloped herd instinct amongst the people.

He was also recently embroiled in scandal about establishing a day for Confederate Soldiers and celebrating the South which did not include an apology for slavery. He corrected the announcement but the damage is done.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
We have a two-party system, and the only reason why we do is because we have a winner-take-all electoral system. That's Duverger's Law because it leads to a political system that tries to get rid of third parties that spoil the vote. Hence why we have libertarians, neoconservatives, paleoconservatives, and Christian conservatives all in one party.
So what I think is that those people will become leaders of the various "factions" within the GOP. Maybe this will show the GOP as once again becoming a "big tent" party that it needs to be in order to successfully compete with the Democratic Party, which is so big tent it has it's own group of conservatives within it.
I think this is healthy, because I don't think any one particular faction should have so much power in government. Unfortunately, as the GOP's big tent becomes bigger, get ready for accusations of RINO being thrown around with abandon.
I beg to differ. Both parties are starting to shift away from the center, and that is actually good because it would force people to take sides.I think this is healthy, because I don't think any one particular faction should have so much power in government.

BTW, I would love to see Gov. Chris Christie make a run.
President Ronald Wilson Reagan-Greatest president in my lifetime!
YO DEMOCRATS, BACKSTAB THIS!
I would hope Rand Paul, Ron Paul, or Gary Johnson are the future leaders of the Republican Party. I don't agree with them on some of the economic issues, but they reject authoritarianism and embrace liberty. This is what we need.
