Having said that, I think the nuts are a clear minority but are so exorcised they dominate the process disproportionately. Everntually clearer heads will right the ship. Sure hope so, there needs to be two relevant parties.
For one if the GOP doesn't do a major really check soon they may never matter again. And even a miniscule attempt to compare the dems of 25 years ago to what is happening now within the rigid GOP is ludicruos IMO.
You guys are infested with the Teaparty and while I don't believe most repubs share their views.......most repubs don't speak out against the nonsense of the Teaparty. TP will be the demise of the GOP.
Jindal is not quite right. It was not flubs or silly "gotchayas" that cost the GOP the presidency. It was the lack of an authentic voice that people can actually relate to.
I think the central core of the GOP consists of a small number of intelligent but very cynical elites. They have managed to enjoy some political success in the past 2-3 decades by trotting out a relgious/moral facade in order to ingratiate themselves with so-called "base" voters that they wouldn't give the time of day to in real-life, but whose vote is the only chance they have for office.
It seems the GOP won't be able to ride that pony anymore, "you can't fool all of the people all of the time", they will have to seek out an authentic and populist voice to get anywhere in the near future. IMHO, this will come in the form of a much more libertarian platform in the future.
One can't forget that it was just a few years ago that many were saying that the Democrat party was dead.
To retaliate in kind would do nothing but intensify the existence of hate in the universe. Along the way of life, someone must have sense enough, and morality enough, to cut off the chain of hate. ~~ MLK
I like how sushibrain, Tristan, and Salisbury Sage have avoided this thread like the plague. Truth hurts, don't it boys? Time to get out of looney tunes land.
Like that's gonna happen.
Without that, Libertarianism in practice will rapidly self-destruct and become something akin to anarchy.
There are parts of the Libertarian platform that I disagree with, but who agrees with any party's entire platform?
The G.O.P. will never get the black vote (which nationally is only 9% of the electorate anyway) and should not waste their time, energy and resources to get it. The black community and the GOP are just culturally incompatible and their views of government antagonistic.
