It doesn't matter what strategy they come up with. They ran on jobs, jobs, jobs in 2010 and once elected pivoted to their radical social engineering agenda and how to rig elections by disenfranchising voters. Whatever they say simply won't be believed. In the immortal words of GWB, "Fool me once shame on you, fool me...You can't get fooled again."

4 possibilities: 1) improve the core product 2) improve just the packaging 3) increase efforts to trash the opponent 4) blame everything on others and do nothing

Not having ammendments to the state constitution is a good place to start. I think the voters will still remember that in 2014 and make the GOP even less relevant in MN.

Use words like "liberty", "exceptional" and "freedom". Alienate those who don't share your religion, color, creed, nationality, political standings or personal background. Insulate yourselves in echo chambers and talk incessantly about certain victory. Worked last time, no?

It will be interesting to see what people say about the "priority of social engineering" when the Democrats first move is to push gay marriage thru. Of course, then, it will be OK! Dayton;s first move already is to push benefits for gays! Why aren't you complaining about that "social engineering".

Not having ammendments to the state constitution is a good place to start.-----------------The left is so hypocritical. That last THIRTY FOUR ammendments to the state constitution were pushed thru by the DEMOCRATS!

Good luck with that. After reading "Bulls, Bears and the Ballot Box" I am no longer a former Independent. We are still feeling the effects of TPaw's term in office (aka kick the can down the road), the voter ID amendment and the, gay marriage amendment. The wealthy opted out of the economic recovery even though they were given the Angel Investors bill on a silver platter. I don't see anything that the GOP (Gone Out Party) can give us that the DFL cannot.

avejoecon: "That last THIRTY FOUR ammendments to the state constitution were pushed thru by the DEMOCRATS!"

Let's assume that's true. They were all adopted. Unlike the 2 just proposed by the Republicans, which were soundly rejected. So which Party is in sync with the voters?

Until they realize the middle class has a right to exist and prosper, and that their only constituents are not big business and the wealthy, they will continue to fail.
