|Republicans just seem to be willing to be subservient. Why is that?|
Having others make the decisions is just easier and a lot more fun then agonizing over what to do next.
All that the progressive socialist libarl democrats require of Republicans so they can attend their parites and not be savaged in the media is to stand in the back of the room and shut up.
See, it's easier to do what you are told rather then having to debate a subject that requires having some knowledge on the subject and a set of principles to back it up.
Unfortunately the Republicans, it seems, have neither.
