Palin's "going rogue"..

Well it's the law of political physics. There are Democrats that feel the pendulum has swung farther left with Obama as the Republicans swing farther right. What's interesting is Clinton and Bush both represent a kind of political poaching and triangulation. I think the real center is more libertarian in nature. People don't want to much meddling in their wallets or bedrooms. Who knows what 2012 will bring.

I agree with the bolded as well. My point was that the GOP might have more success reaching closer to the middle; I think there are more voters there and the party would have a brighter future if it was more inclusive. Instead the scope seems to be getting narrower.

Government doesn't always invade your life like a StormTrooper, sometimes it erodes your freedom a drop at a time like a slow leak destroying the foundation of a house.

I'm not seeing that articulated or demonstrated. The Bush adminstration and the bailout is case in point.
