Bobby Jindal on why you shouldn't vote Republican

Bobby Jindal points out all the reasons why people want to vote for Republicans but don't. These are the two most important of his recommendations:

Stop being the stupid party. It's time for a new Republican party that talks like adults. It's time for us to articulate our plans and visions for America in real terms. . . . 
Quit "big." We are not the party of big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes, or big anything. We must not be the party that simply protects the well off so they can keep their toys. 
Republicans are right on a lot of technical issues from health care to education to non-military spending. Health care sucks because there's no competition, education sucks because of unions and college's suck because of the subsidies, and no one really wants to pay your TV or radio bills (i.e. for PBS or NPR).

But because the Republican party is the party of the stupid and the corrupt, even if you agree with them on the economy and health care you probably don't want to vote for the whole package of Republican policies.
