    To be fair and balanced, here is my assement of the GOP leadership...
    They are losers...
    For years they tell us the poeple to donate and vote for them so they can do the things we care about...
    They were given the majority in the House, and later the Senate and now the Executive branch...
    Yet they have not been able to agre among themselves and come up eith any significant legislation?
    Why? They are losers.
    They just don't know how to legislate and horse trade and use their tactics and influence...
    They are shooting themselves in the foot.
    I will ask Speaker Ryan and Majority leader McConnell one question and one question only.
    What else do you need to get anything done?
    If you can't, the problem is not with the system or the A,erican people. We did our part and you can't seem to fo yours. Time to step down, resign and let someone else lead.

      The answer isn't obvious to you? LoL!

      Many GOP pretty much remain in their own, narrow-minded little bubble - believing such 'hyped' things like abortion & a 'one world system' that somehow starts with our healthcare policy is evil (in the literal kind of way), etc.

      They continue to try to force extremist, right-wing policies - that they absolutely refuse to upgrade - onto a constantly-evolving country consisting of 'we the people'. We change with every generation, yet most of them stay the same - and those that do try to change with the times are considered to be 'moderate-republicans' who are essentially labeled rebels & traitors by those within their own party.

      In a nutshell, GOP 'leadershop' doesn't listen - but they are obviously really good at doing things like gerrymandering and twisting their age-old propagandas into people's unsuspecting brains to keep getting elected.

      The GOP absolutely REFUSE to work across the aisle in a bipartsan way; because they view it as 'compromising with the enemy' - instead of creating policies that the MAJORITY of 'we the people' (who are NOT the enemy of EITHER party) can both live with and be proud of beyond either political party's extremist stances.

      The GOP has both chambers of Congress, the Executive. There is a disconnect between Trump's concept of being a Republican and that of Congress. Infighting now rules and as a result, the Trump agenda will be stymied.

      Get rid of Trump

        Very funny but seriously, it is not a Trump problem but a GOP leadership problem...with members like John McCain and Susan Collins... how can they win anything?

    I think one problem is that we see Republicans elected if they pass a litmus test. They can give lip service to this litmus test and not really agree with it but we see that you can rarely win the party nomination in order to run without doing so. The rank and file of the GOP need to accept that their platform is flawed and needs to be changed in such a way as to ensure that the core things which are important (fiscal responsibility and limited government) are the focus of who they support and fund in those races. Then you'd have people of like mind holding those offices (if elected) and you could probably get the important things done.

      In other words, they lie to get into office.
      Whose fault is it?
      The people can only rely on what they hear and what candidates promised to do?
      We don't have a crystal ball do we?
      Perhaps we can force them to take lie detector tests...haha
      I would be happy if they just past a basic civics test.
      Some of them don't even know our Constitution.

        You missed the point. It isn't so much that they lie but that the rank and file demand they do so. Passing the litmus test of the GOP is the problem. Sometimes it is that one issue which gets someone nominated and I can assure you that right to life is not an issue which has anything to do with the major problems in our country which affect all current citizens.

          I disagree with that. We are a democracy. The people wants somethings from our government. They elect people to Congress to accomplish tees things. The problem in recent years is that those in power forgot who they are suppose to serve. They have been corrupted by big donors and crony capitalists and Wall Street...

            Of course they have forgotten. That is all those in power. I thought we were talking about the GOP? the rank and file, if one passes  your litmus test, appears to be OK with this.

              I thought it was obvious I was talkimg about the GOP leaders in Congress, not the voters.
