  1. say "Thanks, but No Thanks" to the AARP

    as a strong supporter of limited government, there was one issue that pushed me away from this party - the massive Medicare Drug plan, it made me long for the days of Clinton's welfare reform

    you have no basis to call Obama a Socialist while Bush/Hastert/Frist redistributed my future tax dollars to current Medicare recipients

    Like the AFL-CIO, the AARP should be tossed aside as another group advancing a socialist agenda that Republicans should just tune out

    • Make Facebook a top target for organizing and communicating.

      As a younger conservative, I was completely distraught by the number of advertisements and motivational tools utilized by the left on the social network Facebook in 2008, and the total lack thereof on the part of the Republican Party. The GOP must bring balance to the "Facebook Vote" if it wants to ensure that the next generation of voters isn't bound to liberalism.

      • Replace the elephant with a mule

        The Democrats get a donkey, we should have a mule. This should be in honor of Neal Horsley, the future mule-loving governor of Georgia.

        • Return to the Principles of Reagan and Lincoln

          Republicans are losing because they have lost. They have lost their morals, their principles, their values and their beliefs.
          Conservative voices should be leading us and building us.
          We need to return to the Reagan and Lincoln Conservatism, and that is the following:
          1, We need to return the concept of a small, non-intrusive federal and state government.
          2. We need to return to the concept of minimal government spending and size.
          3. We need to understand once again that government is horrible at running things, and should only be a necessary evil at best, providing things like security of…

          • The image in public minds

            The image in public minds that this is the party for the "rich white folks" or people in "Archie Bunker mode" need to be challenged and fought. GOP had been seriously lacking PR means to reverse this image. It has only grown with our party’s recent challenge of W's comprehensive immigration reform for which bigotry and racial exclusion surfaced. We need to do something drastically, without compromising our moral and free market ideals, to make the public aware of our party's intent for racial inclusion. Or, I'm afraid it’s only a matter of time for Hispanic Americans to vote “monolithically”…

            • ABOLISH THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM

              We need to dispose of this private banking cartel that is the root cause of inflation, boom and bust cycles, and the ones who work hand in hand with the political elite. We cannot truly be free if we are still slaves of the monetary system. It's time for the GOP to stand up against this Creature and to bring sound money back to the USA! No more fiat currencies, it's time that America goes back to a gold or silver standard, where wealth cannot be eroded over night. No more acting in the interesting of the elite bankers and…

              • be Michael Steele

                We need someone who is bold, visionary, positive - able to reach across party lines and pull voters back across with him. Michael Steele didn't win his Senate race, but given Maryland's demographics, he did incredibly well. We need someone who is able to help us compete in cities and suburbs - in the Northeast, on the Coasts - it's absurd that time and again, every election we take it for granted that all those states will go blue. Look how many electoral votes we allow the Dems to take in NY and Cali with absolutely no effort!

                • Push for Ron Paul for House Minority Leader.

                  Ron Paul is the most conservative, principled, influential Republican in the country today. We must have Ron Paul at the helm to be strategic rather than reactionary.

                  • Change the message . Not the strategy

                    I just read the REBUILDthePARTY home page and you clearly do not get it.

                    The Internet is not your Saviour. More contributions will not yield a win in the next election. What will you do with the money? More television ads? More travel and speeches? The current Republican rhetoric makes my eyes glaze over. I cannot hit the mute button fast enough. Debating the real issues is the only thing I will listen to. You don't need much money to show up at a debate.

                    I can give you the answer by telling you how the party lost me.

                    • Reach out to Candidates like Gary Johnson

                      Gary Johnson won two terms in New Mexico as a Republican in a state that runs two to one democrat. Gary Johnson is a self made entrepreneur who knows the value of hard work, personal responsibility, and private enterprise.

                      As governor, he supported traditional republican values, of limited government, and encouraged free market solutions to state problems.

                      He used private enterprise to overhaul the prison system in New Mexico, and fought for competition in road construction to reduce costs to the state government.

                      He is for individual liberty and understands the ridiculousness and ineffectiveness of the drug war.

                      This year,…

                      • Use the Internet in a Simple and Powerful way

                        The ‘myGOP’ system needs to be completely overhauled and the new system should be interactive and connective. It should house all of data on donors, volunteers, and supporters (both individuals who are republican as well as independents and democrats who are supporting a republican candidate or issue). From there, all communications should be filtered though the system.

                        So, say my neighbor wants to support me for a race. They log onto my website and, within the site, register as a supporter. They are now accessible by every other republican candidate that is running within their area as well as the…

                        • Restore & Restrict Voting Rights

                          "Back When", voting was restricted to White, Male, property owners. This was done to protect our system from people who could damage it at the time. Thankfully, through evolution and realization we have included all races and women but what happened to property owners? Our forefathers created the requirement for a reason and no-one has given it the first though as to why it disappeared.

                          Consider the main-stream Obama voter... How many of them were on welfare, don't pay taxes, & are general economic drains on the system? Would they vote us foward towards more general economic success or backwards…

                          • Make Newt Gingrich the New RNC Chairman! NOW!

                            The party needs a leader that won't lead us to the middle, but in fact pull us to the "right" side. Newt Gingrich would be perfect, leading the party back to where it stood during the Clinton years. A time the Democrats enjoy taking credit for, but it was Congress lead by Speaker Gingrich that lead to the prosperity in America, not Mr. Clinton.

                              • Redefine Party Lines

                                Far too long we have muddied the clear line of our party in trying to "reach across the aisle." So much so now that people don't know what it means to be a Republican. We need to get back to our party's base of smaller government and fewer taxes. We need to prove to the people of America that we are not a confused, contradicting party, but a clear and definite solution for the problems America faces. Clean out the wish-washy Republicans and elect some strong Conservatives.

                                  • term limits for all house and senate

                                    The big boy system and alliances have to end. Corruption is abound in both parties and lobbyists control too much of the politcal parties.

                                    • Stop with the fascism.

                                      The Republican Party could make inroads -- even if they kept the mindless religious fanatics as their base -- if they were to drop the hard-core suckling they do at the teat of business. "Fascism" is the unholy marriage of business and government. And the GOP is married, BigTime. If they were to *ACTUALLY* be for individual business growth rather than corporate power, if they were to make an even playing field for small business, and stop the "death tax" BS, if they were to force executives to EARN their pay, they would make huge gains in the general population.

                                      • We lost because we wrecked America for 8 years

                                        This whole blog is about strategy as if we lost because we didn't run the right campaign. We lost because we ran the country into the ground economically, socially and internationally. We had 8 years to push our agenda and we pushed hard and it turned into a train wreck. Does anyone think Sarah Palin could have done a great job of executing a war in Iraq or saving New Orleans? Read these blogs. No one even cares about the mess we made. We're still trying to keep gays from getting married while the world is crumbling. We look just…
