How the GOP can start fixing itself

Step #1: "Admit it screwed up."

Jonah Goldberg lays it out:
For too long Republicans confused supporting big business with supporting free markets, when big business is often the biggest impediment to fair competition. Other fresh new ingredients would almost surely include pro-family tax policies and the de-linking of legal and illegal immigration as interchangeable terms.

But first, the GOP needs to admit it screwed up.
UPDATE: John Stossel underscores Jonah's point about big business:
[businessmen] are not natural friends of free markets. They are often first in line for privileges bestowed by the state. That's called "crony capitalism"
