1) So long as it's in the opposition, where should the Republican Party focus its energy?
Getting better candidates to run for office.
2) What is the most worrisome part of Barack Obama's presidency?
His swift moves towards socialism. He is moving so fast that we may not be able to counter much of what he has done.
3) There's been a lot of debate about the role that talk radio and cable news hosts should play on the right. Particularly controversial are Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and Mark Levin. What do you think about these folks? Do they help the right or hurt it (or is it more complicated than that?) How should Republicans interact with them?
It is more complicated than that but I believe in the long run they help because they help a lot of people to solidify their thinking.
4) One particularly fraught controversy pertains to race in America -- with the first black president in the White House, some conservatives have been criticized as racists for opposing him, and some on the right have accused the Obama Administration or its allies of racism or anti-white sentiments (for example, Sonja Sottomayor's "wise Latina" comment drew fire, as did the Skip Gates incident). As the right thinks about political strategy and policy, how should it approach matters of race?
If we are to truly to have a intrigated country we have to ignore race. Race doesn't exhist. If we talk about it we are raceist. If we are truly color blind then we press forward on issues no matter who presents either side.
5) Is there anything you observe locally, or that Republicans in your area of the country care about, that doesn't get sufficient attention in the national media conversation? If so tell me a bit about the issue, and the approach you think the right ought to take.
Our area is so small that we would not count in a national conservation. The main problem I see is our Freedoms are being taken away faster than we can fight back.
6) Traditionally the Republican Party has been a coalition of religious conservatives, libertarians, fiscal conservatives, and national security conservatives. Is that alliance viable going forward? If so, what must be done to hold it together? If not, what alliance should the GOP try to build?
That alliance would work and be strong if our elected officials would truly be conservative. We have to many powerful RINO's in the Republican Party. They are rich and powerful and as long as they are in office Republicans will lose.
7) Is there anything I didn't ask about that you'd like the media or the country as a whole to know?
We cannot continue to trample on the Constitution and keep a free country. We will loose our country if we stay on the track we are on now.The government cannot do everything for us or we will destroy America.
