    The "moderate Republicans" have already been driven out of the GOP. Now they're called Independents -- or Democrats.
    What's left of the GOP is a now just a regional party of religious extremists -- they've given up trying to appeal to the whole country in national elections.

    During President Reagan's term I gradually began my drift away from the GOP party.

    Today I am a Democrat.

    Much to my su-prise!

    Did "I" leave the Republican party......or did the GOP "Leave" ME icon_question.gif

    Moderates can't do anything within the republicsan party basically because it's their own fault
    They gerrymandered their districts so badly that they have to cater to the most vehemently aggressive republicans out there .... plus they have sucked up to the social conservatives and the religious right so much that when they stray from the disgusting rhetoric they they espouse now .... any moderate will be primaried out before they reach any general election

    For me it's great .... I get to sit back listen to the hysterical Sh*t that comes out of their mouths and watch them beat each other to death besides

    Who knew stupid people yelling at each other would be so much fun

    BTW who's bright idea was it to send Rand Paul to Howard University? icon_rolleyes.gif
