11. Show-down

This would require a political show-down that could lead to deeper damage to the country. It's time for the Republican brand name to die on the vine and new party of conservatives to step forward.
The democratic party would- hopefully- lurch to the left to maintain it's base.
Conservatives have a responsibility to America to maintain their viability and political clout. The conservative school of thought in America is very important for many reasons. As a people, Americans need to have reasonable opponents at work together in Washington DC (including all levels of governance), crafting legislation that represents the best of what America has to offer.
I would hope that there are enough honest American conservatives left to form a new party.
After all, we know that Teabaggers are not conservatives or grass-roots organizations. We also know that Fox "news" has taken over the Republican brand name and replaced it with Rupert Murdock's political ideas and fear-based narratives.
These people aren't conservatives, they're radicalized right wing reactionaries.
It's time for conservatives to separate themselves from the Republican brand name and establish a new party that espouses true American conservative ideas and principles.

Give the Teabaggers the Republican name and let them choke on it- America is more important than control over a party name.
