If Repubs won big in '14, and '16, they would still have no clue and no courage. There is nothing to win. Dysfunction is so entrenched and institutionalized that no politician can even see the light, much less politic for them.

If the GOP wins back the Senate they will use it to pass OBAMA's immigration bills.
Until you understand the Establishment GOP's reason for being IS NOT FIGHTING BACK you will keep getting "fooled" and disappointed after you elect them.
If you don't elect a conservative, it doesn't matter if you elect a Democrat or Republican. The people that won't pay attention and won't fight to clean out the GOP take the lazy path, elect whomever Karl Rove picks and then blame THE SYSTEM for not working. You cannot outsource Citizenship.

Don't worry, the republicans have a strong tradition of screwing elections up.

Our debt is so huge, that any abrupt change in the system will precipitate a depression. Interest rates will go up, then we cannot pay the debt. Default and we can sing Evita's song.
Both parties are hanging on for dear life. Obama won. He did to the US what Reagan did to the USSR.

The manner in which the Democratic party is choosing to engage the questions about the IRS being used as a weapon by them to suppress and corrupt elections indicates that they are on track to continue this slow-motion seizure of absolute power next year.
Who amongst us is ready for street fighting come election day 2014? How about 2016? If Black Panthers stand outside a polling station with clubs in their hands, to recall a notorious example, the police will not make them disperse. It was one instance last time, it will be a hundred the next. They got away with it. Most Attorneys General don't remain in office as long as Eric Holder. Funny, that.
Make no mistake, the Left does not respect their opponents as human beings, have not and will not play fair, and will happily spill blood to maintain their forward momentum.
The Left inflicts casualties, and do not suffer any. The Left owns the streets. The Left expects us to be pussies in this matter, and they have good reason for that.
The Republicans are in line to lose to cheating, vote fraud, and intimidation. The Democrats will feel no pain for committing these crimes against the very essence of self-rule. They haven't, yet, have they?

Like old Mamma used to say, "Next best thing to runnin' and winnin' is runnin' and losin'."

I don't know what I'll do if Bush or Christie is nominated for the Republicans.
It was bad enough when I realized I didn't have a party. Now that the country is gone, too, I'm just getting yardwork and painting done.

Meet the Panthers with bigger clubs. Start a ruckus all over the place. I'm in favor of small arms but not many can handle the consequences of that type encounter.
Bet the Republicans to "place" and make some money.
