The Republican Party is no longer the Party of Reagan
It no longer does the will of the people.

When asked if she would consider creating a third party if neither Gov. Romney nor President Obama would budge from their current positions on a variety of issues, Palin left open the door.
“Look what happened in the mid 1800′s. The Whig party went away and the Republican Party surfaced. Because the electorate got sick and tired of the party fighting for power and not doing the will of the people.”
Palin went on to say history could repeat itself.
Morton Blackwell = HERO
The revolt’s leaders include key figures in the conservative movement and on the committee. Virginia delegate and longtime RNC member Morton Blackwell, a former Reagan aide who founded a conservative training academy called the Leadership Institute, called them the “worst-ever changes” to the party rules. In an email to delegates to the convention, Blackwell urging them to vote for the amendment to the Rules Committee report referred to as the committee’s minority report.
“If the Rules Committee Report were to pass without adoption of the Minority Reports, it would amount to a power grab by Washington, D.C. party insiders and consultants designed to silence the voice of state party activists and Republican grassroots,” he said.
To force a roll call vote on the minority report, the opponents must secure the backing of a majority of six delegations, setting the stage for a rare floor flight on Tuesday afternoon.
