The top 7 reasons the GOP can't be based around moderates

To boil it down:
  1. "Moderate" has no fixed meaning.  What's "moderate" changes from person to person.
  2. Moderates don't pay attention.
  3. They are unreliable voters.
  4. They vote based on how others vote, not principles.
  5. Conservatives are where the money, volunteers and dependable votes are at.
  6. There is no "moderate" media to get the message out, unlike the conservative media.
  7. America is a conservative country, not a moderate one.
It's not that moderates are bad, it's just that you can't form the base of the party around them.  You reach out to them during the elections.

If we want to win, we have to offer a clear alternative to the Democrats' liberal plans.  We have to offer a clear conservative alternate, not a wishy-washy compromised mess that excites no one.  You can't build a castle on quicksand.

I think this statement applies across party lines. With many issues, there's not a clear 'moderate' position. I think the parties should stop trying to reach out to moderate voters. They should instead do what they feel is right, and hope that the swing voters can be persuaded to their viewpoint.

1. True
2. False
3. Depends on what you mean by "unreliable voters." They'll vote for whichever party supports the issues most important to them.
4. False.
5. True.
6. Arguable.
7. False.

Do you enjoy just making random shit up?

It's a lot more convincing than just saying "false" and "true" randomly.
