This kind of thinking, which I at one time agreed with, only tends to make estabilshment republicans and RINO's think they have a chance to just serve up a better version of Romney, Dole, or McCain. In each case they lost. If conservatives refuse to vote for these imitations of the real thing, the margin of defeat will be much greater and the establishment types will have to look to other reasons for their losses and perhaps they won't villify and marginalize conservatives and Tea Partiers. It didn't take long for the establishment repubs to forget who it was that helped them gain back the House.

To each their own of course.

I happen to still believe that Romney was the prefect person to be President at this point in time. Some time a transnational figure can be better than am ideologue,

Frankly, with the exception of Newt there was no one that got close to running, other than Romney, that I would have trusted to be even remotely near trusting.

Do I think a conservative would win? YEs I do, I am actually quite certain of it. Unless of course conservatives decide they are so large and in charge that they cheese of Republican moderates who stay home.

The party does lean conservative, and needs someone to take them there, have success and get them to lean further that way. A conservative Obama would be a terrible choice, and a conservative who is jst not up to leading or understanding the need for some degree of consensus would IMO also be a terrible choice.

Staying home? You are wrong, you could not be more wrong. Unless you agree with Jedi and Dope that we have to collapse. Frankly they may be right, but the belief there is a light at the end of the collapse? Maybe, maybe not, lots of times that light is the trains and after your butt is run over you do not recover, you are simply road kill
