Blackfox asked me what I thought the republican party needs to do, and here it is. First, they need to ignore the religious right. I am not saying to abandon the ideals of God, they should keep those, but, they need to seperate themselves from the faction of the republicans that do nothing but want God to dictate everything in governmnet. I am not talking about removing God from everything, but stop using God as a justification to stop abortion, etc. If you are against abortion, argue against it from a moral standpoint, not a religious one. Second, they need a real candidate. By that mean one that will move accross parts of society. Someone like McCain, or Arnold. Someone that will use commonsense, not the ideology of the religious right. Third. They need to identify reforms that need to be made, isolate them, and attack them. Government is too big, way to big. Return some of the power to the people (states). Personally, I would like to see less social programs from the fed, get them out of that business, and let states tax, and collect funds for their own social programs. Let them decide. That way the people have a real choice about where they live based on more than just the name of the state, or if there is a beach there. Fourth. They need to attack the politics of politics. By this, I mean attack the attacks. When something is off base, prove it. Attack the bastards head on. They need to be fair, and for the love of God, admit when you are wrong. If Bush would come out and say, "look, I got some really bad intel. But I did what I thought was best based on what I got. Here is everythig that I got, now what would you do?" That would be a start.
