I think you mean they haven't gone far enough to the left for you. Anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, and anti-pot legalization, for example, are traditional views not new extreme right wing ideas. It's not social conservatives who have changed, it's the center of gravity of the entire population that has moved to the left over time.
"After voters re-elected an administration that added five trillion dollars to the nationís debt, left 23 million Americans unemployed, surrendered Iraq to Americaís enemy Iran, and enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to gain control of the largest country in the Middle East, the one lesson Republicans should agree on is that elections are driven by emotions, not reason." - David Horowitz
