    Post-mortem Analysis

    Received this email today from the Constitution Party with a bullet list of why Republicans lost. I did not vote for anyone from this party - but I would agree most of their bullet points.

    Many of these betrayals are policies of the liberals and not of the conservatives:
    • Advocacy of amnesty for illegal aliens,
    • Failure to enforce existing immigration laws which require penalization of corporations which hire illegal aliens,
    • Promotion of a North American Union (NAU) scheme to merge the United States with Canada and Mexico,
    • Historically high subsidies to Planned Parenthood,
    • Appointment of open homosexuals to key positions,
    • Massive expansion of the Federal role in education,
    • Increased funding of the United Nations,
    • Expansion of foreign aid,
    • Failure to move forward deployment effectively of a ballistic missile defense,
    • Budget busting expansion of non-defense Federal spending and massive increases in annual deficits and the overall national debt,
    • Trade policies which have undermined America's manufacturing base and placed millions of American jobs at risk,
    • Approval of anti-family FDA policies such as authority for the distribution of RU-486 and over-the-counter sales of "morning after" contraceptives,
    • Approval of threats to U.S. civil liberties, including elements of the Patriot Act,
    • Signing into law the McCain-Feingold election regulation bill in clear violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution.
    Are there no true-to-the-core Republicans left?
