"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security

A lust for money and power.

Everything they else claim to stand for is just lies to get elected.

As true a statement as has ever been spoken.  The 21st century GOPe is feckless and rudderless. They need strong leadership and a freaking platform, for heavens sake!
NeverTrump wants to deny you YOUR voice, YOUR presidential choice.

That's a pointless question. The only possible answers are meaningless statements like "the Constitution" or "motherhood and apple pie" or maybe a single issue statement like "an end to abortion".

If you want to ask something meaningful, you would ask what a GOP Congress would try to accomplish in the last two years of an 0bama admin. And then you would judge them by, first off, the merits of their proposals; and secondly, by the soundness of their strategy to get those proposals implemented in an 0bama admin. It really shouldn't matter all that much if you like the individuals - we're not voting on Miss America or the newest American Idol - it only matters if they have proposals to fix something that's broken. There are a lot of things to choose from, and they can't fix them all, so a promise to fix everything is not a good answer.

Unfortunately, answering those questions would require at least a majority of GOPers to agree on a platform. So far, they're much too busy fighting each other to agree on anything. In that respect, they are listening to their "base" - we're the ones who don't agree with each other any more than they do. :shrug:

I don't know about money, but if ANYBODY is lusting for power, it's Ted Cruz, Mr. Tea Party himself.

If he cannot manage to mount even a mildly effective primary campaign, how on Earth could he have been expected to withstand a democrat party blitzkrieg?
