    As a developer, I have learned that you basically can't do anything if you don't have the "content".

    Technology is an "enhancer" to your content. It delivers your content to the user. The better the media presentation the more people see it thus maximizing it's potential. But if all you have is a crappy message that everyone and their neighbor have already seen then it doesn't matter what technology you use. It's still going to be crap.

    Slogans, Rebranding, and Redefining yourself and your message only get you so far as well. It's really about WHAT you are saying and NOT how you say it that matters. You can put the most famous actor on stage with all the glitz and glamour of an epic event. And if the message sucks you will just end up looking like Clint Eastwood yelling at an empty chair.

    The GOP is doomed at this point. At least it's platform is. They need to revise what they stand for if that is even possible at this late stage of "political cancer". They have taken every drug imaginable to sustain themselves all these years and it's only made things worse in the long run. The Religious Right, the Tea Party, the Rand Paulites, etc. are all running rampant through their system wrecking any chance that the body that was the GOP will even get out of the hospital bed ever again. They need to simply crash and burn as a party then let the factions fend for themselves to find out who is really going to be the opposition to the Democrats. So sad... but I am sooo glad I was alive to see it!!!
