    Good luck getting a NON neocon in charge of the republican party. Is there a “conservative” (term used loosely) talking head that is ANTI-WAR? (other than RP of course)

      How about Rep. Walter Jones to answer your question. I agree with Citizen the GOP should not only appeal to their base they should appeal to Independent voters like the Dems did in order to win more elections.

    The Republicans have to build a broader based coalition made up of
    Constitutionalists, Tea Party, Libertarians etc. to appeal to the more conservative INDEPENDENTS.

    Dr Paul is building a coalition consensus of conservative planks
    1. Sound Money, End the Fed, 100% reserve banking, STOP INFLATION
    2. Free Markets, Stop Government over-regulation, class warfare manipulation, corporate welfare and crony favoritism
    3. Liberty, Let people keep more of their property, lower taxes is a good start.
    4. National Defense, Not Offense, BRING THE TROOPS HOME stop trying to police the worlds personal problems.
    5. Secure the Borders, enforce immigration laws.
    6 Legalize and Regulate Drugs, Stop the Drug War, we’ve lost, get over it!
    7. Dismantle the Industrial “Offense” Complex
    8. End the Entitlements, their bankrupt, stop being delusional, FDR and LBJ Ponzi schemes are failures we can’t afford them
    9. Get rid of worthless Government Departments. like Education, EPA, and 20 others, they don’t work
    10 Liquidate the GSE, Fannie and Freddie

    and that’s a GOOD START!
    Some sacred cows must die

      Actually that’s exactly what the RNC has been doing and is exactly why Republicans keep losing elections.

    I have to disagree with one point RP made; I think it makes perfect sense to kick Michael Steele out of office, if not just choose a different leader for the party.

    As long as the GOP is as divided as it is, and lead by a neocon, the party will not attract more people. Quite the contrary. The trend of the conservative people in our country is clearly towards limited government, Constitutional adherence, and principled politicians. Therefore, we need a leader in the party that matches the trend of the people. Just as we need a leader of the nation that matches the will of the people. That is why Ron Paul is so popular right now: he is a role model, an icon, of what the people want from our politicians. So to me it makes perfect sense to get a party leader that also fights for what the typical conservative wants right now.

    The Tea Party movement is the voice if the average conservative, including both republican and liberty folks, and together they define what conservatives want to see in their party leaders. Michael Steele is definitely not the best voice for the party. Boot him out!

    .. And don’t stop there! Get rid of all the neocons, or at least as many as possible. This act from the voters will show clearly what the conservative trend is, and as a result the chances for a GOP victory against the Democrats will greatly improve. We need those young voters and fringe independents. They will not vote for neocons. But they would vote for libertarians like Ron Paul. We should therefore make the changes that the people want to see. And the only way to do that is get rid of those that do not represent what the majority of the people want.
