Reason: Why Romney Lost
Nick Gillespie, of Reason magazine, has a rather long winded commentary on why Mitt Romney lost- and why the GOP continues its slide into irrelevance. The way I read it, is the GOP needs to become more libertarian. I agree and have long felt the same way.
Still, the only fiscally responsible and socially tolerant candidate on the ballot in most states was Gary Johnson and he got barely 1% of the vote. That doesn't bode well for fiscally responsible, socially tolerant candidates.
