This is a site for Republicans and others who believe that the Grand Old Party is not dead, just disoriented. We're here to help the party get back to its philosophical basics, find new leadership at the local, state and national level, and re-learn the art of winning elections.
I want to stimulate a freewheeling discussion that aims to identify the people and ideas most likely to lead the party back out of the wilderness. We'll be talking about potential candidates, known and not-so-known, constituencies that that party must reach to create electoral majorities, and the messages that will reach them.
As a Californian, I will focus on the challenge of reclaiming the Golden State for the GOP, starting with the governorship. This state propelled Ronald Reagan into national leadership, and I believe it can do something like that again. I've lived here all my life, and I know how surprising California politics can be. That said, I'm also eager to hear from people in all 50 states and D.C. about the state of the party nationwide, its challanges and its opportunities.
Also, if you haven't figured it out already, GOP Future is in no way affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its state or local units. The opinions expressed here are strictly those of the individuals who post.
We seek to identify the people and ideas that will lead the Republican Party back out of the wilderness. Topics include core conservatism, potential national leaders, constituencies that that the GOP must reach and the messages that will reach them.
