I gave them an earful for supporting Laurie Smith. That is simply unforgivable.

they need to know why they are losing voters. I believe there are more registered Independents than republicans and thats not good for the Party.

I filled it in. Whether they listen or not, of course, depends on how many people think the same way, and whether or not they actually want to listen, or this survey is just a way to prod for more donations (which I didn't give, I'm not going to give any money to GOP until they finally represent me on at least some issues. I'm done voting for and supporting "lesser evils").

I'm not sure which Laurie Smith you're referring to. I found one that is a porno actress and another a politician in Illinois. Fill me in...who is she and why don't we like her?

My only problem is that every question was leading, common sense that every republican will answer the same way..... Do you want to kill the terrorists so that all the children will be safe? Yay!!!!!

The only saving grace was the area that allowed you to add your comments. Lets hope that in the future they will really ask for our input.

This is a national GOP thing.

The fate of the CA Republican party is somewhat different than that of the national GOP - even when national GOP recovers, CA GOP will still have huge issues.

It really is. They might as well give an endorsement to Diane Feinstein also.

Both the Republican Party and the NRA need to "come clean" on their sheriff endorsements in this state. How and why did the NRA endorse Brown for Santa Barbara Sheriff? It's nuts. Who else would they endorse, Nancy Pelosi?

I completely agree. This wasn't a survey, it was cheerleading. I put down "Undecided" on all of the moronic, leading, and completely bass-ackwards questions because I won't say "yes" to any of that crap.

A recent national poll reported that nearly 25% of Americans want the government to pass more socialism. Do you agree or disagree?

Um, 25% sounds like the right number. If I suspect that it's 30% instead of 25%, should I indicate agree or disagree?

Should Republicans in Congress oppose the new wasteful government spending programs passed in the recent "stimulus" bill by the Pelosi-Reid Democrats designed to "spread the wealth"?

Um, should Republicans oppose the new spending programs introduced by Republicans in the most recent budget proposal? The one where six of the top ten (including gold and silver) earmark sinner were Repub's?

And I already gave as much money to the RNC as I'm going to this year.

I gave them an earful for abandoning conservative principals. Traitors.

I believe its was the Sen. from Mississippi who had the most in earmarks. Both from that state were in the top ten IIRC.

Wow a lot of "how often do you beat your wife" questions...

The GOP is so far out of touch with reality let alone out of touch with me. :(

Do you guys even know it a legitimate survey and not a pishing attempt?

Well, it was a phising attempt. They attempt to phish an RNC donation out of your pocket at the end of the survey. :p

Which tells me they're still not listening.

The way I see it the Democrats have shifted to the far far left and the Republicans, in an attempt to stay relevant or just being misguided, have filled the void left by the Dems in the moderate left sector. So both parties are shifting to the left with the Dems ahead of the Repubs.

What needs to happen is forming a new party that takes the place the replublicans left in the conservative sector.

That would be the Libertarian party, but unfortunately their marketing apparently sucks. McWeasel-Feingold was passed with the explicit intent to maintain the two party duopoly and it's been all too effective.

Going to take a massive, and I mean massive, grassroots effort to give a third party option any legitimacy. I say it with tongue in cheek mostly, but I'm seriously beginning to think that too many people in this country are just satisfied being sheep in their comfortable little worlds to get involved at the level it would take to pull our country back to right of center.

SInce most of us on this board are probably registered Republicans, perhaps we can come up with what we find wrong with the Republican party, you know, the REAL ISSUES, then come up with our WISH LIST.

Rather than send things in one at a time, we send them a unified message from all of us.

Sure, we are going to have divisions, but I bet that we will find that we have a 70 to 80 percent consensus here on the board on many of the so called hot button issues.

The survey actually represents what is wrong with the Republican party, the Republican party for a short period of time actually had some guts, 95-96, but since then, nothing.

it seems the two roads that Republicans want to take is to make the tent bigger (getting off of social issues i.e LGBT issues) or go back to basics. (Goldwater, Reagan). The arguments against the former are that your diluting party principles (or selling out) to get more voters. The arguments against the latter are that by being stubborn you keep the party a regional party (The South & Midwest) of White Men.
