How many felt that they had to vote for Obama because Romeny creeped them the fuck out?

what the hell is going on?  Why can't we get a candidate like Goldwater now?  Why do we have to see the right putting up people like Santorum and Romney who scare the fuck out of a lot of people?

It's kinda the republican's own fault on this shit...  having candidates sign psycho pledges and shit....  WTF...

I agree.  Libertarians IMO are the true Conservatives at this stage of the political game.  Mainstream republicans scare the hell out of me as well. I am a conservative but not a republican.

If the Republicans were to run a Goldwater type of candidate, is he or she really going to be elected.

Seriously.

Convincing people to vote for a 3rd party I think is the biggest hurdle right now.

A Republican has no shot at the presidency anymore, unless that person does something specifically heroic.  The United States has turned into a nation of takers who will vote Democrat no matter what.  Americans are on the dole, they are fat, they are lazy...and they now outnumber the Americans that are educated and hardworking(and even many of them will vote Democratic based solely on ideology).

yes, I seriously think that type of candidate TODAY would capture most of the middle, most of the right and some of the left.  He would win today.

I'll tell you this, I'll bust my ass to keep clowns like Santorum out of office but I would be happy as fuck to support a candidate similar to Goldwater.

Pretty sure Goldwater would never win a GOP primary.

He was pro-gay and pro-abortion.

Correct.

This is what's wrong with the GOP.

The Evangelicals took the party over.

They are now the party of Nonsense where they used to be the party of "making sense".

Tony, the winds are changing, but they're only blowing harder in the direction JBGRAY references. The Democrats simply make it too easy and attractive for people NOT to work. They're buying their votes with handouts and entitlements that no other party can compete with.

I don't know if I necessarily agree with that.

I think if the Republicans can get away from the evangelical bullshit... You know... the women oppression... The Crazy kook shit... They have a shot.

They just moved SO FAR to the right that they are seen as neanderthals.

Yep. I agree, and I've mentioned it before: they need to shut the fuk up about matters like abortion and gay marriage, and focus on more relevant issues that impact how the country is run.

But, right now, that seems like a long shot.

Instead of targeting the bright conservative voters they changed focus to the religious voters and the typically stupid voter.

You can win a GOP primary with this but maybe not an election.

The last two elections are proof of that.

Exactly... But of  course, the evangelicals see it as their guy not being "conservative enough".
