The Republican Party has lost its heart and soul. The party of Abraham Lincoln, founded in the mid-1850s as a political movement united against slavery, has morphed in the 21st century into the party of hate and the party of no.

"San Diego voters need to remember that Nathan Fletcher votes like a Republican, fundraises with Republicans, and holds up some of the most divisive conservative figures in the country as his political heroes. In other words, he's about as 'independent' as his buddy Karl Rove."
Bravo to The New York Times editorial board for condemning the National Organization for Marriage and shaming the Republican presidential candidates for not repudiating NOM’s strategy to “Divide and Discriminate.”
“Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich -- you should immediately disavow the National Organization for Marriage’s Pledge that each of you signed. We now have the proof that NOM is an unethical and deceitful operation.”
The results, which are not scientific, reveal that 56% of readers say they believe that Mitt Romney will be the GOP nominee, 31% think Newt Gingrich, 3% think Ron Paul, 2% think Rick Santorum and 8% think someone else will be nominated.
Mitt Romney is on a roll, winning both the Iowa Republican Caucuses and the New Hampshire primary. Still, he has yet to win a majority of the votes in either state, showing that the majority of Republican voters are not quite sold on him as their nominee.
