Since it’s now clear that the Republican Party has been completely taken over by the religious right and wants nothing to do with the LCR, it’s time to break away.
The Republican party isn’t the only conservative party. There’s also the Libertarian Party. The LP is truly dedicated to the core principles of smaller government and personal freedom the LCR praises the Republican Party for.
I don’t think it’s possible to take back the Republican Party any more, as the LCR is attempting. Instead the Republican Party should just be left to the religious right while those alienated by their religious dogma create a new mainstream conservative movement. This is a perfect opportunity for the Libertarian Party to go mainstream. By sticking with true conservative values, the Libertarian Party can become the influential conservative party while the religious right does their own thing and eventually loses influence.
