  •  And they're still doing it.... (1+ / 0-)

    By holding on to the Fundie Fringe they are still holding onto the "votes" at the cost of their ideas and ideals.  

    The GOP was once the party of fiscal conservativism.  When that stopped working for them they linked their star to the only other "conservatives" that would talk to them - the fundamentalists - social conservatives.  They needed warm bodies.  Now their future is hooked to that ilk and they have no way out of the dark.  

    Unless they change and moderate, they have no hope of gaining enough votes to do anything.  With stars like Cruz, Rubio, Bachmann, Ryan they deserve to be on the sidelines for a very long time.
