How can you blame Soros for influencing republicans when there is plenty on conservative minded Media? Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, et al. Most republicants intentionally view conservative media.
The year before the presidential election the democrats won most elections in a landslide. Why?
The strategy of Shumer, no doubt a ultra lefty, was to use candidates that were less left and more moderate. It worked. Then McCain beats Romney and Huckaby but the republican party leadership refuses to realize that people want more moderate and less right wing candidates.
I was a republican but not anymore. Not a dem either, but rather an independent. There are lots of us that left and would love to come back if the party gets it act together.
But, if they keep a hard right stance and run candidates like Palin, Huckabee, Jindle, etc. They will be a party no more.
NPR, move-on, media matters, the Anneburg foundation, Acorn, all pushed to register independents. Why would far left leaning organizations push for that???. As you state most of the country feels that they are in the middle. Weather true or not that is the consensus. Independents can vote in both primaries. Let's see who would you pick. 2 candidates that are being touted as far right conservatives. Or "The Maverick" who has voted for many moderate and liberal causes over the years.
How many times did you hear Maverick. Every time the republicans move to the middle they get slaughtered. Why?? It shows that they cannot stand up for there values.
Liberals don't have that problem because look at there base.
Unions, (Use extortion and organized crime clearly the end justifies the means to there actions)
Lawyers, How can someone take responsibility for their own actions??? They would be out of a carreer!
Teachers, Where else can you work without any recourse for incompetence. Your pay scale has nothing to do with your performance?
Students, No experience in paying taxes or taking responsibility and are use to handouts rather than earning them.
