Do Republicans need to abandon their extreme right wing principles?

  • The GOP is resembling fascism.

    No need to elaborate much here. Ultra nationalism, racism, xenophobia, homophobia and all kind of intolerance, Christian fundamentalism, paranoia, ideology, isolation from the rest of the world, deprecation of science and knowledge in favor of conservative mythical values (biblical in this case). All these attributes of the republican mentality are typical of fascism. Either they abandon all this or they will end up like the Nazis in Germany: defeated, prohibited and forever condemned.

  • Unless adults whining like spoiled little brats and policies of hatred and oppression are what you want in government.

    The level of hatred in America now can directly be attributed to Republican politicians, right-wing media, and a long festering fear of change. With the election of Barack Obama, their failure to graciously accept defeat like adults was instead a fueled assault on America. Bolstering racial animus like white supremacists and bigots, calling on increased expressions of hate from religious fanatics toward gays and women, focused hostility towards ethnic minorities, disdain for people in need - denying food and health care - and increasing calls for civil war. It's outrageous! And all of this to distract us from the fact that they have accomplished nothing as evidenced by this being the worst congress in American history. They have done nothing to assist in the economic recovery of this country except secretly vote themselves a pay increase. Wasting tax dollars on frivolous law suits and repeal initiatives. They are holding this country hostage! Unfortunately, I fear that they may have gone too far to recover. They've lost me.

  • Yes, Unless They Want to Keep Losing

    The American people have spoken and they really are tired of the extreme right wing policies of the Republican Party. They have lost two federal elections in a row by large margins. They need to stop being so crazy and start moving towards the center. Otherwise they will continue to lose elections.

  • Yes, They Do

    As the last two elections have shown, the Republican party is not the preferred party. The GOP is out of touch with the majority of voters, particularly women voters and Hispanic voters. If they hope to win elections, the Republican Party much become much more moderate in their beliefs, as soon as possible.

  • If they want to win an election, yes.

    Republicans have been made to look like they're against poor people, they hate homosexuals, they would rather hire a man over a woman, and simply want to make money. A part of that mistake is probably because their principles simply don't attract the common voter anymore. Now more than ever, women, Hispanic, Blacks, gays and all other types of groups vote, and they vote for whoever seems to want to help them the most. And at this point, the Democratic party has positioned itself as their party, and the Republicans have stuck to their principles in an ever evolving world.

  • Which ones are extreme?

    From where I stand it's liberals trying to force bigger government on the people. From where I stand it's liberals who passed an extreme healthcare bill which makes business two thirds less likely to hire. From where I stand it's liberals who try and demonize "old white men" for no other reason than they were successful in life. And from where I stand it's liberals who are forcing religious people to use their hard earned money to buy contraceptives for people who won't take responsibility for their own actions. If personal responsibility and self determination are radical concepts then count this US ARMY soldier proud to be one.

  • No, we need alternative positions to be represented.

    It might serve Republicans well to find a more moderate platform that they can embrace because the tide of public opinion is rapidly sweeping them aside. But we can't have a conversation without someone taking an extreme view, and the right wing factions provide that voice. The left wing has its extremists as well, but the Republican extremists have managed to get themselves in a position to obstruct any progress, and that does not bode well for them when they do it. It ceases to be a conversation any one wants to have when there is not give and take from both sides.
