No, they should disband and let Rush lead them again.
When will they let these poor zombie ideas die? The gold standard? what a joke.
Every day Glenn Beck thumps at the poor uneducated chumps that "gold
doesn't lose its value" when it's a commodity like anything else.
And a balanced budget amendment would go down the rat hole the minute the
Republicans decided they wanted to fight a few wars.
‘Do Republicans need to update some of their policies?’========= Only if they want to win elections.I'm
perfectly fine with the one-way direction into obscurity they've chosen.
After seeing some expensive training devices in military service that cost 10
times (at least) the labor and material to produce, I think the government
doesn't get many real discounts or price breaks. Practically every thing is
made by "highly" trained and "highly" educated people who charge
a pretty penny for their services. I have also seen government food for children
programs where the children throw 80% of the food in the garbage ( or on the
grass ). I see advertisements by law firms who say they can get you Government
money. Now, if everybody in the USA paid half their income, how far would it
cover government spending and maybe (?) pay some indebtedness. The Democratic
leadership don't seem to realize the problem. We need balance in politics
ta achieve balance in government.
"update" is too weak a word. They need to change some of their core
policies. How about allowing abortion in the case of rape, incest, or life of
the mother. How about working to eliminate subsidies for oil companies, how
about finding ways to get money out of politics (the Democrats need to do that
as well) How about ending their campaign of hate against the President in the
interest of the country? How about throwing the John Bircher types out of the
party like they did once before. How about convincing the Tea Party that
compromise is essential to good governance? These changes would be a good
start. But demographics changes may well make it impossible for the Republicans
to every become a national party again. Right now they are only the party of
Utah, Idaho, wyoming and the deep south.

2013==========Yes!I love listening to those
in the uber-far-right STILL claiming the reason the GOP is loosing more and more
elections is because the GOP is not uber-far-right-winger enough.Let
them go...Let them go....
But republicans are inspired by God to lead. At least that is what many people
said on facebook on the night of the election. Apparently only American
republicans have favor with god.
The more the Republican Party acts like the Democratic Party, the more confused
the voters become, and figure there's really not a dime's worth of
difference between the two. That's why the official Socialist Party
disbanded--the Democratic Party took their entire platform. The Republicans
should be more like the Libertarians . . . get government out of our hair, out
of our bedrooms, out of our pockets, and out of our lives as much as
possible--because they CLEARLY can't handle the things they're
SUPPOSED to be doing, let alone being involved in every finite facet of
existence with too much power and too much money we don't have. "The
government that governs best, governs least." --Thomas Jefferson
