I don't like the fact that the morals of the country are decaying as they are, but the Republicans are going nowhere if they think it's the government's role to enforce these things and tell people how to live their lives. They should take on more of the ideas of the Libertarians - less government, period.
I think that is a load of malarkey handed out by the libs and swallowed by the masses as a means of broadbrushing Republicans. Every time a Republican running for Dog Catcher in Peckersnot Tennessee makes a statement like "God wants us to look after the dogs' the liberal media jumps all over it. How many Democrats are atheists, socialists, communists and you don't see the media spinning that up.
Most Republicans don't give a **** about the things they are accused of. The Republicans don't run ON an 'anti-abortion" platform but they are ACCUSED of it by the media in a sort of "Do you still beat your wife ?" manner.
If the Republican Party cannot draw people away from SantaBama, as far left as they are, how can anyone more fiscally conservative convince a large portion of the 47% that they need to cut their benefits and pay some?
