|Star Parker is melancholic about the GOP's future|
More: "We’re living in a deeply troubled country today. Americans are looking for answers, not a political class feathering its own nest. There are tens of millions of conservative American patriots who seek an opposition party to represent their conviction that America will not get back on the path to strength and prosperity without restoration of freedom, limited government, free markets and traditional values. Today’s big question is whether the Republican Party is going to be that opposition party. If not, it is not conservative values and convictions that will be abandoned. It will be the Republican Party."
