IF REAGAN TOLERATED MODERATES, WHY CAN'T TODAY'S CONSERVATIVES?

Please review this page: http://www.acuratings.org/ratingsarchive/2007/2007senate.htm

McCain lifetime rating ACU: 82
Specter: 45

Generally, McCain has voted less conservatively in more recent years. His average for 1990-97 was 88, but was only 74 for 1998-2006.

And the 65 was his most recent before running for president. It would seem that McCain was a microcosm of the Republican party in general: moving away from conservatism since 2000 and noticeably enough so that they are consistently losing since 2004.

The GOP should redouble the efforts?

The Reagan era was a little bit before my time, but regarding the title: couldn't it be said that Reagan got the moderates to go along with more conservative policy, and that this was the success? As opposed to the reverse, which is to drag the conservatives leftward "toward the center" (a la W., which was not a success)? Isn't the current issue with the GOP then being looked at backwards?

THE MORAL COWARDICE OF SARAH PALIN

I disagree in this fashion: A domestic terrorist, such as Timothy McVeigh or Bill Ayers, is one with a beef with the government. Abortion clinic bombers, violent protesters, to me are much like those who shoot up schools: mass murderers and sociopaths.
