5. After 2004, 2008, and now this election... this GOP is only about far-right culture war

They wrapped themselves in the flag and called all "liberals" unpatriotic. Then they went full-tilt insane in 2008, deciding that they only represented the "real america" in their minds. Since then, they've stopped caring about the entire nation and increasingly seem hellbent on civil unrest... resisting all change and refusing to work together to solve problems.

Even now, in 2012, instead of a platform focused on their ideas for improving the economy, they've mostly focused social issues and vague trickle-down hot air.

While I don't expect many moderate Republicans to hop over to the Democrats, I sure hope they register as "independent" and vote Obama. More conservatives need to speak out against the far-right and increasingly fascist, nationalist, and nativist rhetoric.
