No, but you don't need to be to get out from social issue hell.
No. But GOPers should stop talking about abortion because that fight is over, plain and simple. There is no scenario in which abortion becomes illegal and no candidate who really intends to do anything about it. It's simply a dog whistle to the social conservatives: "I'm one of you". It's one reason I don't care about a candidate's views on abortion at all; everyone is entitled to their private view on those issues, and it won't have any public impact anyway.
No. You can be fiscally conservative and pro-Gay Marriage. You can be fiscally conservative and pro-immigration reform. You can be true to the constitution and not demand that the country be governed in line with christian interpretations of God's will.
Keep the fiscal conservatism and constitutional fidelity. That's the one selling point the Republican party has, and it resonates. It's the other baggage that screws the GOP.
I agree with you 100% on this. Small government fiscal conservatism is what I care most about. It's why I vote GOP. Enough already with abortions. It's decided law. GWB and now Rubio were for immigration reform. Taking a self deportation position is the path to never winning an election apparently.
