18. The Glue that holds the Republican Party together is
TAX CUTS .....

The traditional Republicans and Libertarians will put up with all kinds of what they think is nonsense from the religious right as long as they get their tax cuts. It's why Bush will face no serious primary opposition. He delivered on the tax cuts.

The problem group could be the religious right which can be discouraged if it doesn't make any progress for too long. The partial birth abortion ban will show them they're secure with Bush too.

I think Bush learned the lesson from his dad. He will go into the election with a secure base of support. Especially if the Democratic nominee goes into the campaign promising to raise taxes.
