      Romney is 60 years old. He'll be 64 in 2012 and he will no longer have a portfolio. The one-term governor who governed as a social progressive is unemployed. So: He's neither young nor does his old age confer the benefit of experience.

            Another solution would be for church, synagogue, and mosque attenders to organize political groups independent of their faith communities. The priests, pastors, ministers, rabbis, imams, and mullahs who joined would just be members like anyone else. They could say whatever they wanted to say. This is a non-issue IMHO.

              Bush developed the notion of compassionate conservatism. Does anyone remember No Child Left Behind or the prescription drug benefit? I wish we were known for limited or limiting spending. We aren't. Similar to what you propose what we need to develop IMHO is a political rationale and a legal theory to support community-based self-help institutions. See Kropotkin's _Mutual Aid_.

                    Ron Paul *is* an old, grumpy white guy. He just happens to be *your* old, grumpy white guy. Who is supposed to do the "reaching" BTW? Ron Paul and his people have the numbers and they have proved they can raise the cash. If they continue to develop as a movement they can make the GOP theirs. It's Ron Paul who needs to reach out to build a broader coalition.

                      We are inclusive. Not by choice but by design, because in the US party system you cannot exclude anyone. If you want to change the GOP platform than run candidates and get them elected. Or raise lots of money. Or organize. The reason that social conservatives seem overrepresented is because they deliver votes, cash, or ready-made organization and social networks in the form of faith communities.

                        What does "realism" mean in this context?

                          We do that already. It's called campaigning. Or governing if in office. The problem IMHO is that the solutions we offer are to often inconsistent with why many of us identify ourselves as Republicans. The Prescription Drug Benefit, No Child Left Behind, The bush-paulson-bernanke US$1 trillion dollar bailout. These were conservative responsa to pressing issues how, precisely?

                            Why do we need to "make room" for libertarians? If anyone wants a voice within the party, they need only recruit and run candidates, organize people on the ground, or raise lots of money. Do any of these things and you can create all the "room" you want. The reason why social conservatives seem overrepresented is because they can often deliver cash, votes, or bodies to staff your phone banks.
