    Whatever brains exist in the GOP recognize that if the conservative Evangelicals were given everything they wanted, they would have much less motivation to go to the polls.  So while conservative politicians will harp on social issues, they generally don't do much.  It keeps the religious conservatives coming to the polls.  And they rarely ever notice.  Most of the time, the GOP can blame Democrats.  Not this time, though.

    •  It's the same with the dems. I only vote (2+ / 0-)

      dem because I am a socialist and dem is closer (but by no means close at all) to my beliefs than GOP and the libertarians are just crazy altogether.

      That's why I am constantly annoyed with the crap thrown at us as "candidates".
