Oh, good grief, no. The GOP needs to suffer the crushing death blow of a full 8 years of Obama for them to begin to understand what it would mean to get back following the Constitution, bring back the troops from overseas, stop the insane drug war and reduce the size and reach of government. They won't get it until they have been decimated and the neo-cons and corporatist oligarchy calling the shots right now is played off.

And really, that's OK with me. I like a lot of what Ron Paul says. I also think he's wrong on several front, one of which being troop deployments. I also don't think that country--center right as it is---will embrace his agenda in total. The GOP should focus on spending, size of government, security and real tax reform. Leave the social wedge issues alone (abortion, gay marriage, etc.)
Sorry but you were shoveling crap like this before the last election.
Well I guess you won't get it until they lose again. However that'll just make their reform take that much longer. You probably wouldn't like a republican party that operated like they were designed to anyway.
"Crap like this?" You mean polling data from universally respected sources? I presented you with current data from Ramussen, Gallup and others...all showing serious problems for your party and a growing advantage for the GOP. Now, while it very well may change (as I have said many times before), one cannot deny what the data shows right NOW.
As for 'losing," I've already mentioned that you'll shift that definition to fit the events of the day. Beyond taking control of both houses, you'll pronounce them "losers." Even then, you might post that "I told you SDW...they should have one by more....this shows how screwed up the party is.
The only thing we can do is look at the current data and trends. These show that Republicans taking one or both houses is a possibility, though far from a certainty. The trends show that the President has lost popularity faster than any President in history. They also show he is the most unpopular President at this point in his first term...ever. Congress is hugely unpopular as well. Local polling shows many Democratic Senators are at risk of losing their seats, including Dodd and Reid, of all people. Even Boxer is in a fight in CA.
But you won't listen to any of this, because you've created a nice little scenario where in your mind, you can't lose the argument no matter what happens. If the GOP wins, it should have been by more. If they take one house, it should have been two. If they take a large number of seats but don't take control, you'll claim victory.
Most importantly, if events transpire that cause the political landscape to shift within the next year (delivering a dem victory), you'll claim that you were right all along..
