Said Snowe: "Ultimately, we're heading to having the smallest political tent in history, the way events have been unfolding. If the Republican Party fully intends to become a majority party in the future, it must move from the far right back toward the middle."
“You haven't certainly heard warm encouraging words about how [the GOP] views moderates,” said Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe, one of the few remaining moderate Republicans in the Senate.
Snowe said the party's message has been, “Either you're with us or you’re against us.”

I disagree with her---I think the Republican party has grown ever less conservative, and that our society has grown ever more liberal, only making it seem like Repubs are to the right. Everyone--including the Republican party--has shifted left. If the entire country doesn't start moving back toward the middle, we will ultimately be destroyed. We will not thrive as a leftie socialist nation.

I've never had to pick and choose because the Republicans party has always had a good platform.
