You get it! It is what many others have said prior. The change will have to come from work done at the state level. Every time I hear or see people in a worship mode for a Pres candidate I have asked them what they are doing locally or in the state. Most times nothing! Then they wonder why things do not change! During our last election cycle, at the Rep state Convention it was very clear going in who the party leaders wanted to run for open state offices. What came out was candidates that fit a much more conservative view. They went on to win on the state level and now one of them is seeking to head to Washington as our elected Rep. Again though the old guard is pushing someone else, and I am inclined to think that the results will be the same as last time. That is the involvement that is needed. Not the attitude of taking their ball home if their guy does not get the nod and then hiding away until the next Pres election!
