What if the GOP went LEFT?

LOL, wouldn't that be something sweet. If they decided the only way to win in the future is to abandon a lot of the conservative stuff, and lurch to the left. That would be amazing, and really good for the country too!

Odds are against it, but ya never know.

2. Isn't that the point?

If they ever do go left, we can start having serious political debates with them again.

7. You're forgetting that takes intelligence.

That would be the obvious thing to do. Heck, Mittens almost had some people convinced in his shape-shifting first debate, but it would all be a mirage.

8. What happens?

They take some of our voters with them. That's what happens.

9. They're going to have to if they want to keep power.

But if the far right tea party types are the ones selecting the primary candidates, it's just a matter of educating the electorate which is a lot easier with technology today. That Romney adviser overestimated the etch-a-sketch, and now that's a term familiar with most voters. It's going to be a lot harder for them to say one thing to win the primary and something else to win the seat.

10. what if the DEMS went left towards the center? there is no "left" in the US anymore except for a

small handful of what used to be called liberals before the democrats turned their backs on that word and philosophy

13. The only way the GOP would end up on the left

is if they went so far to the right they went in a complete circle and ended up on the left by accident.
