The point being they're the "founding" party.....\n\n1. Basically you vote for them on the economy.\n\n2. Their MO is lies & conspiracies, and there isn't much of a "market" for conservative [investigative] journalism.\n\n3. But when you go beyond the lies & conspiracies, they don't appear to be able to articulate much. Like Fox TV does a good job in reporting, and there's the Examiner and NY Post. But there isn't much in the way beyond that. Was it wise to abandon journalism because they deem it a leftist field? Because often it appears what's left is opinion hosts w\/o a journalism background, and it feels very amateurish. \n\n4. They often don't appear to even be versed in journalism or citing sources and cannot even participate in the debate. \n\n5. Or they lean on leftist sources to make their point on the left LOL.\n\n6. Faith-based ideals and therefore lose the debate to feelings based on the "other" world. Why the RNP tries to get religion out of politics, especially in a debate.\n\n7. Lies, conspiracies, and hate to galvanize voters, but also lack confidence in their ability to sell conservatism???\n\n8. Will say, 'Well what do the Democrats stand for?' Without telling you what the Democrats stand for LOL.
