What exactly is wrong with Reaganism? It this divisive attitude among moderates and some far righters (not me) that is destroying the party. Actually “I think the Republican Party will die if it does not stop trying to revive Reaganism” is a fantasy-yours. But you are trying very hard to make it a reality.
BTW, fiscal prudence is the Reagan ideal-but was simply unachievable with Democrat Congresses and a Cold War. Please stay awake next time Reaganism is explained to you.
See here (go to fast comments) and watch me duke it out with Elitist Atheist Democrat dunce Gordon, and some of my comments on multiculturalism too, and read the post that spawned the discussion.
