When Conservatives and Values Voters Are Unhappy, Bad Things Happen to the Republican Party, Says Richard Viguerie.

MANASSAS, Va., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- With polls showing evangelical voters deserting the GOP and indicating a sizable defeat for the Republican Party in the November 7 elections, Richard Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, stated that the GOP has alienated its base.

"It appears that very few Republican seats in Congress are safe. That's what happens when the Party abandons conservative principles," Viguerie said.

He said that the Bush Administration and GOP members in Congress have instituted a massive expansion of government, including a pork barrel spending spree, that far exceeds anything the Democrats ever did. Viguerie added that President Bush's embrace of amnesty for illegal aliens, nation building abroad, and mere lip service on social issues have disturbed much of the Republican Party's base.

"How could these guys think they could trash conservative principles and still maintain the allegiance of the grassroots," Viguerie asked.

In the Introduction to his new book, Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause, Viguerie wrote, ""When conservatives are unhappy, bad things happen to the Republican Party...Warning to the Republican Party: Conservatives are unhappy again."

Viguerie added that the GOP has invited defeat in the elections by showing its clear disdain for conservative and values voters.

"The campaign is almost over, but it's never too late to do the right thing. Republican politicians should repudiate their fling with big government and come home to honest conservatism," he said. "Even at the last minute, a genuine expression of support for limited government, secure borders, and a values agenda might salvage a few races that would otherwise be lost."
