Conservatives defiant in the face of GOP troubles

Washington (CNN) - They didn't get the memo.

Seven months after the national Republican Party issued a report exhorting the GOP to "stop talking to itself" and appeal to minorities and swing voters, conservatives banded together on Friday in a defiant show of unity against the party's political pragmatists.

    Piers Morgan is correct on Obamacare. It is the law of the land, as voted in by Congress, and therefore it is the law of the land for all. What we all need to understand is why all the exemptions? Let's put a bill in front of Congress to repeal their exemption–and then we will know how to vote the next go-round.

    Cruz and the Tea Party should be classified as Public Enemy No. 1, and dealt with accordingly.

    The Shutdown proves that Republicans are no longer a viable voting choice. I will vote Democrat, Independent , or third party but never , ever Republican again.
