  •  This is exactly the strategy they will go to next (0+ / 0-)

    I've already seen it suggested on the Free Republic. The Social Conservatives and the Libertarian/Corporatist wing of the party appear to be locked in a death spiral. Neither can do without the other.

    If they're unable to moderate themselves and win over members of our coalition with policy, they must divide our coalition.

    I have no idea how to defend against it, but I am convinced this is the short-term strategy because it's easier than all the others and it's been proven to be a historical winner.
