The shot that started this Civil War was fired in South Carolina when the so called social conservatives abandoned all their values to vote for the man who least stands for social values. South Carolina started THE Civil War 151 years ago to protect an evil way of life, slavery, and to reject a president who was not one of them, Lincoln. South Carolina has started a GOP Civil War to protect a big government, serial adulterer, dead beat father because he is one of them, a Southerner.
The tea party doesn't want moderate republicans in the party. Southern Evangelicals may be willing to tolerate Mormons in the party, as long as we sit in the back of the bus, but they won't stand for one driving the bus. Libertarians have received similar treatment as well. Gingrich will work wonders to drive out all three groups. His nomination will galvanize large numbers of republicans to permanently leave the party. The GOP continues to shrink with smaller voter ID numbers than democrats. Voters have been leaving the GOP in droves for some years now.
Well then, maybe it's time to cut loose from the teavangelicals. Perhaps it is time for the 20% of us who are hated by the tea party and the South to leave as well. It is past time for a center right party to form. That is what I would like to see. But the reality is that we will just fracture and gaurantee the democrats control all three branches of government for decades to come. But this is what the country deserves at this point.
Whatever happens this year, the lights are going to be turned off soon for the GOP, and good riddance.
