Why the Republicans continue to lose

reasons that social issues prevent republicans from winning

The reason the republicans lose races is simply because of social issues. They need to realize that the legislation of morality is unwanted in this day and time. The polls pointed to Romney being the best one to fix the economy and the best candidate to grow jobs. Those being the two biggest issues in the election , how could he lose? 

Well I'll tell you. Republicans want to tell people how to live, who to love and what you can and can't do with your body. Let me tell you first and foremost that I am a Christian and I know that , at its core, the republican party is trying to do the right thing. I agree that abortion is wrong, homosexuality is not right in the eyes of the lord and drugs are bad and lead to many other problems, but it isn't governments job to tell you not to do these things. I am an average guy with no real theocratic training, but I am going to tell you what I believe.

God loves everyone. He sent his son to die for us for all of our sins ,so that we can go to heaven and live with him because He loves all of us. God wants us to love Him. He gave us free will so that we can love Him because we want to love Him. God could easily have just as easily made us mindless zombie drones that do no wrong and finish life on earth and automatically go to heaven, but he didn't . He gives us the CHOICE to accept His son, Jesus Christ, into our hearts thus showing our love for Him , so that we may spend eternity with Him in Heaven.

No amount of man made laws, taxes or fines are going to make someone love the lord. Only conviction by the Holy Spirit is going to do that. The republican party needs to stop trying to legislate morality , just as many Christians need to let go of their hatred for Democrats. We need to do what God had commanded. Love Thy neighbor. God loves Democrats and Republicans. We should as well. The only way to win the political battle is the same way we win the battle between Light and Darkness. Stop expressing hatred and malcontent, instead win them over with love and mercy. My savior, Jesus Christ has been doing just that for over 2000 years. It works. We need to learn to compromise and reach across the aisle. Just remember to never compromise on Faith. If we as Christians and as conservatives can do these things we can't lose.

Hear hear. Tammy, do you think these people will EVER realize how bad Obama is for this nation? I understand that we will always have some boneheaded morons amongst us, but 50% of the nation? WOW!

HWAG- may I comment on this quote from you? We need to learn to compromise and reach across the aisle. Just remember to never compromise on Faith. If we as Christians and as conservatives can do these things we can't lose. That's where I get confused. I agree we shouldn't try to leglislate morality, but I do believe that conservatives get persecuted for trying to do what you said: Never compromise on faith. When they stand up for moral principles (like innocent children being aborted etc...) they get shot down. Maybe instead of tryng to down them, maybe realize that that's what they're doing. You say Republicans need to stop hating democrats, but I heard a lot of ugly words come out of democrats mouths (things that can't even be printed here), because someone simply said I'm voting for the republican candidate. Nasty, nasty stuff. That wasboth sides. maybe you just left that out accidentally.

Sportsfan, I heard someone saying today that we simply live in a different world than we did a generation or two ago. We've spent 20 odd years indoctrinating a generation into an entitlement viewpoint, and are surprised when they vote accordingly. Doesn't make it right, just the world they've come to know. I don't know how old you are, but MY generation understood communism and socialism as our country was fighting it at the time. Funny to me, that immigrants come HERE to get AWAY from it, and we are slowly becoming what they run from! And this generation votes according to all they've ever known. Republicans can do better as far as tryng to educate this generation into true economic realities. In High School, it's simple a chapter you have to pass in order to get a grade. Like i said, they talk over the head of the average American who has no idea what the devil they're talking about. This genreation hasn't lived the reality of it. Too bad. Those of us who know, shudder.

Yes, you are right.

I see a lot of comments from both sides that seem to accuse the other side of being in complete agreement with their own. I don't feel that all Democrats are living on the dole nor am I a racist because I don't agree with Obama. Obama is the first president in my life to encourage such division between class and race. Never have I felt alienated from friends or co-workers who vote differently than I. There is no way in hell this is unintentional. Obama has stated himself that he wants to make the global community a level playing field. That's BS and that isn't the way I raised my children to succeed.
