    GOP is considering ideological purity test as a standard for funding of campaigns! I think this is great, though I think some of the standards could be done without, but the idea is fantastic I think.:)

    That's what we need! We'll never win if they start a third party but if the GOP is true to their word they'll have a fighting chance to get America back on track!:)

    I have said this before.... if the choice is between a liberal and a rhino republican... i'll set it out. I voted for McLame once but not again!
    If the Republicans do not return to being a fiscally conservative party...then i'm done with them. Period.

    I think I agree with 10 of 10! I'd vote for this platform

    The ten guidelines, distributed to RNC members in recent weeks, are as follows:

    (1) We support smaller government, smaller national debt, lower deficits and lower taxes by opposing bills like Obama's "stimulus" bill;

    (2) We support market-based health care reform and oppose Obama-style government run healthcare;

    (3) We support market-based energy reforms by opposing cap and trade legislation;

    (4) We support workers' right to secret ballot by opposing card check;

    (5) We support legal immigration and assimilation into American society by opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants;

    (6) We support victory in Iraq and Afghanistan by supporting military-recommended troop surges;

    (7) We support containment of Iran and North Korea, particularly effective action to eliminate their nuclear weapons threat;

    (8) We support retention of the Defense of Marriage Act;

    (9) We support protecting the lives of vulnerable persons by opposing health care rationing and denial of health care and government funding of abortion; and

    (10) We support the right to keep and bear arms by opposing government restrictions on gun ownership;

    All 10 things on that list just sound like common sense to me.

    Say, I've got an idea!

    How about we nominate Red for the next Presidential election?
