2. You lost tons of votes to Gary Johnson because your party has become snotty, fundie, and nasty without any sort of adherence to stated principles.
3. Your nominee was the Monopoly Guy. I was half-expecting to see him bust out a monocle.
4. Akin and Mourdock. facepalm
5. You bitched and moaned about Obama waging class warfare, and then turned around and divided up
Americans into the "takers vs makers" and relegated the poor into a "mooching class."
6. Neoconservatism is dead. It's also not really conservatism.
7. Borrow and Spend is not a viable alternative to Tax and Spend.
8. You got sucked into stupid wedge issues like Sandra Fluke's lady bits.
9. Your party has become very derisive and mean.
10. Crybaby conservatism is not appealing. The entire media is not out to get you. Polls were not skewed. Nate Silver is not an ideologue.
11. The Echo Chamber blocks any points of view not in lock-step with the party line.
12. Being a slave to ideological purism is not appealing.
13. Tax cuts don't solve every single fiscal problem no matter what the situation.
15. You co-opted the Tea Party early on and balled it into a Michelle Bachmann/Sarah Palin/Allen West amorphous beast. What once started out as a principled opposition to Wall Street and Bank Bailouts was sheisted onto the fundie train.
16. Sarah Palin. Did I mention her?
17. Banishing small-l libertarians. And banishing Big-L Libertarians too, for that matter.
18. The Breitbartization of the way you get information.
19. Birthers and other specialty derps.
20. Donald Trump.
21. The way you handled Ron Paul.
22. If every Republican is a RINO, then what is a RINO, really?
23. The hypermasturbatory usage of the term "Job Creators."
24. Get over the whole gay marriage thing. That battle is lost.
25. People that live in cities are not all yuppie liberal douches. Stop referring to the quintessential "Real American" hardworking families that somehow all live in Whitetown, Kansas all the fucking time.
26. Get over the whole abortion thing. That battle is lost.
27. Your foreign policy is EXACTLY THE SAME as the Democrats' - how you cannot see this is inexplicably frustrating.
28. You framed most of the platform in a negative way, and the stuff you were positive about, you were vague as hell. Very suspicious.
29. It was pretty obvious that Romney's core values were non-existent. Other than wanting to be President, does anyone really know what the guy stood for? At least George W. Bush had the balls to stand for something.
30. The party has shifted. I wouldn't say it's shifted to be more "right-wing" or "conservative." I think it's shifted "internal." Everything the party does is reinforced by the acceptable so-called conservative media (FNC, Breitbart, Drudge, etc.). The GOP has surrounded itself with Yes-Men, and anyone within the ranks who disagrees is belittled, thrown out, or exits on their own. There is no real debate other than how much more "pure" it should be. Refusing to see any validity from anyone with a D after their name, crushing all so-called "moderates," padding their cells with their own pollsters and bloggers, the Republican Party has become a self-perpetuating talking points machine of angry pricks.
