The greatest insane conspiracy believed by attendees at CPAC is that if they only put forward more black and Hispanic candidates, black and Hispanic voters will begin to vote Republican in meaningful numbers. What they utterly fail to understand is that the old American electorate is being dissolved and replaced with a new one which will never vote for low- tax, free- enterprise principles so long as an ethnic spoils system is on offer instead.

EvilRacistNaziFascist: The greatest insane conspiracy believed by attendees at CPAC is that if they only put forward more black and Hispanic candidates, black and Hispanic voters will begin to vote Republican in meaningful numbers. What they utterly fail to understand is that the old American electorate is being dissolved and replaced with a new one which will never vote for low- tax, free- enterprise principles because historically they have been abused by such a system which favors those who already have the capital to make advances while disproportionally punishing people who try to enter the system at the bottom.

In all honestly, the RNC needs to push the party to a platform that recognizes the vast failings of a free market economy whose wealth is funneled into the hands of only a few major players while leaving everyone else that financial kids table We especially need to offer inroads to counteract inherent prejudices in a system predominantly run by older white men who have no way of understanding the complexities of the social system suffered upon their fellow Americans.


Wow, Evil, what a brilliant and insightful post! +1, Would read again!

Hey look everyone, Bill O' Reily has a Fark account!

"Low-tax, free-enterprise principles" seem to be code for "Let businesses do whatever they want without consequences"

My UsernamePlease note, my username is meant to be  ironic, i.e. taking the piss out of the moronic left-wingers who lacking any semblance of rational argument can only offer the same old tired insults. If you reply to my posts -- in your emasculated kazoo voice, and with your hipster pigeon chest huffing in righteous indignation -- by saying something like "I see your username is well chosen", then you've missed the point and, more importantly,  you've clowned yourself, you brainless PC drone.

It is easier to whip people into a frenzy over being scared about some evil "boogey man" to get their support than it is to actually try to convince them your policies are better.  How much support would they get if they just came out and said they want to do?  Wanting to gut every aspect of our society that provides the opportunity to those from the poorest elements of our nation to achieve the American Dream, denying needed medical treatments to the sick based on being too poor to pay for the treatment, throwing the elderly under the bus by "privatizing" their paid for "entitlements", and justifying it so those who are alreday doing well can get an even bigger tax break; is not a very appealing political agenda.

Well unless you are one of those who plan on profiteering off of this pillaging of middle class society or basically what is left of it.  It's not about "freedom", it's about those pots of money the "job creators" want to be unnecessary "middle men" to so they can get thier cut for no reason.  They call it "contracting" so they can get a cut and pay out less claiming to be more efficient.

The thing about "marriage equality" isn't a batshiat- insane conspiracy theory, it's a fact of life. I happen to support gay marriage, (actually civil unions for all), but let's not pretend that anti- discrimination laws are just a figment of some whacko conspiracy theorist's fevered imagination.

 I'm also gonna show "Evil" some love. You're right, dude. Except that I would say the whackiest theory present at CPAC is "if we could just find somebody more bipartisan, we could win elections".
Yeah... because McCain and Romney were so successful...

 These folks will all throw invective at you because that's what (tolerant, intellectual) people do when they don't have an argument. Carry on, Sir!

Actually both McCain and Romney's highest points in the poll in the election were when they tired to act more moderate and bipartisan (ie: the first debate when Romney sounded a lot more moderate than he tired to make him sound during the primaries).

It was only when they tried to throw red meat to the right-wingers is when their poll numbers started to tank.

But you're right, the real solution is that the GOP needs to find someone even MORE Conservative than Romney and McCain. That will win over the moderate and independent voters for sure!

Just look at how well that strategy worked out during the US Senate elections.

Actually, it did. Compare the results for the "moderates" in the congressional election vs. the "conservatives". The moderates lost because there's no middle any more.

So riddle me this:

If the real problem is that the GOP candidates aren't conservative enough,

Why didn't Akin, Murdock, Angle, or O'Donnell win?

I'd be interested in seeing 77 non-religious reasons to oppose gay marriage because I've been round and round on that issue with people and asked for "logical reasons not based on religion"

I've never even seen ONE... And as long as I've been at this I think that if there were even 10 of them they would have beaten me over the head with them a long time ago.

The idea that the democrats are selling racial entitlement is so absurd and offensive  that we do not feel the need to counter argue it. Just mock it.

The word intellectual does not mean what you think it means.

The word tolerant does not extend to someone going full racist retard.

You're a shiatty troll.

Oh come on.  Look at how well the bottom 80% have faired under trickle-down economic policies.  Look at how more and more tax cuts for the rich have helped reduce the deficits, to say nothing about all the WMD's we found in Iraq.  Heck, that war paid for itself 3 times over.  Their reasoned discourse on women's issues, and their courting of minority voters have brought in droves of fresh supporters.  Yes, all in all I'd say they are paragons of how to succeed.

Because they were weird- ass bible thumping neo-conservatives? Even including their losses, the candidates who ran on conservative principles fared better than the ones who tried to be liberal- lite.
