Lots of very good ideas here that ought to appeal to all Americans, not just those on the right.

At the very least, these ideas are well worth discussing even with philosophical differences that may exist.

Well done.

You are right, the GOP formula for the last 40 years of scaring whites with minorities, gays and feminists doesn't work anymore. To win presidential elections in the future, the GOP is going to have to develop a positive, inclusive agenda. For example, preserving marriage by developing policies that actually encourage marriage, rather than focusing on preventing LGBT people from marrying.

This looks great but I must say several parts of this document do no match general sentiments echoed by conservatives in this country. Specifically the separation of church and state, allowing for diversity, the entire section on abortion, etc.

Wish they would adopt this... seriously.

Why is our relationship with Israel extremely vital? Is it more vital than our relationship with Mexico and Canada with whom we share borders? Or China with our major financial relationship? What, beyond religion, makes our relationship with Israel more vital than our relationship with any other nation?

re: #4 DesertDenizen

They are one of our primary base of operations in the middle east. I'd definitely call it vital if we are speaking in the context of defense.

A lot of these things are just nice sentiments. What does simplifying the tax code to make it 'fairer' mean?
