If they stay on course and continue making fools of themselves, ie, "CPAC", they will guarantee the loss of more and more in the future. Hatred doesn't win elections. It's what they stand for.

The chart shows that for the past 40 years voting patterns haven't differed much by age. In fact, there's virtually no difference between generations at all until you get to the George Bush era. At that point, young voters suddenly leave the Republican Party en masse. Millennials may be far less likely than older generations to say there's a big difference between Republicans and Democrats, but their actual voting record belies that.
Whatever it was that Karl Rove and George Bush did—and there are plenty of possibilities, ranging from Iraq to gays to religion—they massively alienated an entire generation of voters. Sure, they managed to squeak out a couple of presidential victories, but they did it at the cost of losing millions of voters who will probably never fully return. This chart is their legacy in a nutshell.
Sorry. The Republican goose is cooked. Get along now.
They live in a fantasy world that in a lot of ways is kept alive by Fox reading the same bedtime stories to them night after night. But along with that delusion, they also seem to forget that no country ever become great by a bunch of fat old white guys who complain about breathing.

Respect for the flag, the nation, the people, is taken for granted by most Americans. But the lack of respect, whenever one encounters it, is pretty damned obvious. There's not a country on this planet that will respect us when our President has no "r-s-p-e-c-t" for us.

No, they do not all worship the same God of Abraham. They all consider Abraham their Father of their faiths, but they all worship a different God. Jews and Muslims do not both worship Yeshua as their God. Christians do. Yet Jews and Christians worship the same God The Father. Muslims don't. allah is a moon diety. THAT is the Islamic god.
Christians and Jews have no part with allah.

The 1st and 2nd Balkan Wars were fought over Land, Territory, not religion:
Thought it played a part:

Brief Over-View:
The First Balkan War broke out when the League attacked the Ottoman Empire on 8 October 1912 and was ended seven months later by the Treaty of London. After five centuries, the Ottoman Empire lost virtually all of its possessions in the Balkans.

The Second Balkan War broke out on 16 June 1913. Bulgaria was dissatisfied over the division of the spoils in Macedonia, made in secret by its former allies, Serbia and Greece, and attacked them. The Serbian and Greek armies repulsed the Bulgarian offensive and counter-attacked into Bulgaria, while Romania and the Ottoman Empire also attacked Bulgaria and gained (or regained) territory. In the resulting Treaty of Bucharest, Bulgaria lost most of the territories it had gained in the First Balkan War.

This is The War you're referencing: Read The Words: Sovereignty, Sovereign Territories:
Though religion and ethnic cleansing were a by product, Sovereign Statehood and Territory were the main reasons: And The Balkan Peoples slaughtered Muslims because they were over running the population and The Land, like the Horde they always are, become obnoxious, like they always do .
Sounds similar to Turkey turning The Palestinians away. Trouble making people, every where they go. they're not wanted. Eastern Christianity is very different than Western.
So, The Balkan Wars are more complex that just religious purposes. It was more of an Ethnic cleansing, Genocide than religious. Sad as that truth, those facts may be.

The Yugoslav Wars were a series of wars fought in Yugoslavia from 1991 to 2001 between the republics that sought sovereignty on one side and the government in Belgrade on the other side that wanted to either prevent their independence or keep large parts of that territory under its control. The wars were complex: characterized by bitter ethnic conflicts among the peoples of the former Yugoslavia, mostly between Serbs and Montenegrins on one side and Croats and Bosniaks in Bosnia on the other, but also between Bosniaks and Croats in Bosnia, between Croats on one side and Serbs and Montenegrins in Croatia on the other, between Serbs and Slovenes in Slovenia, between Serbs and Albanians in Serbia, between Serbs and Kosovo Albanians in Kosovo and between Albanians and Macedonians in Macedonia. The wars ended at various stages and mostly resulted in full international recognition of new sovereign territories, but with massive economic disruption to the successor states.

Short summary - Have fun fully researching these facts, deer ...

Evidence casts doubt on ex-CIA leaders’ claims on Benghazi mortar attack
Catherine Herridge
By Catherine Herridge, Pamela BrownePublished March 08, 2014FoxNews.com Facebook2 Twitter11 Gplus0
If former CIA Director David Petraeus and his ex-deputy Michael Morell are recalled to testify on Benghazi, they can expect hard questions about the mortar attack on the CIA annex which killed two former Navy SEALs.
Republican Mike Rogers, chairman of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, is weighing whether to recall one or both of those officials over their Benghazi congressional testimony.
Rogers said the evidence suggests a highly skilled team carried out the mortar strike. Fox News has confirmed five rounds were fired in under a minute, with three hitting the annex roof -- a target roughly the size of two convenience stores.
"This was exceptionally good shooting. It was clearly accurate. They adjusted their fire, which is a term a mortar crew might use, so they went a little long and a little short and they fired for effect," Rogers said. "When you fire for effect and you have three rounds hit exactly where they were intended that ended up taking the lives of our American heroes there, that tells me that they knew exactly what they were doing. So that was either significantly preplanned, or it was a mortar crew that was exceptionally good."
In addition to Rogers’ assessment, military experts say the mortar strike on the CIA base was evidence of a planned terror attack, and because it forced the evacuation of the annex, it must have been known immediately in Washington. But in a letter to the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee in January 2013,Morell said “the nature of the attacks suggested they did not involve significant pre-planning."
Given the accuracy, and the fact the rounds were fired in darkness, five military officers, including retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, concluded the terrorists pre-set the location.
"For this mortar crew to put three rounds of the first five -- right on target -- means to me that even in the day of GPS … the site for the mortar had to be pre-selected,"Peters explained."That would be a good score for a U.S. infantry, well-trained mortar crew."
Retired Army Gen. Bob Scales, who has written extensively on artillery fire, concurred. "This took an enormous amount of planning, an enormous amount of training. It required preparation at a firing point, not only the mortar but also the ammunition, and something like this can't be done overnight. This is something that probably took weeks in preparation in order to pull it off."
Separately, Morell is accused by Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee of misleading lawmakers over the White House's role in the so-called Benghazi talking points by stating the text was provided to the administration for their awareness, not for their input. Emails later released by the administration showed otherwise. Morell, who excised half of the talking points text, previously told Fox News that "neither the Agency, the analysts, nor I cooked the books in any way."
When pressed on the sophistication of the mortar attack, two sources familiar with Petraeus' statements to Congress said he also seemed to downplay the necessary planning and skill, stating the mortars could have been fired from the back of a truck with the same accuracy.
None of the five military officers contacted by Fox News said the truck explanation was plausible.
If Issa recalls former CIA Director David Petraeus and his ex-deputy Michael Morell he is beating a dead horse. Everyone has agreed that the evidence gathered AFTER reviewing the video from the Consulate and after interviewing witnesses, the attacks on the Consulate and CIA annex involved some prior reconnaissance and skill. General Ham and General Dempsey have testified that they came to the conclusion during the attack on the Annex (not during the attack on the consulate). Issa looks like an idiot.

Read the whole thing.

White and non-white Millennials have different views on the role of government.

White Millennials say they would prefer a smaller government that provides fewer services (52%), rather than a bigger government that provides more services (39%).

Non-white Millennials lean heavily toward a bigger government: 71% say they would prefer a bigger government that provides more services, while only 21% say they would prefer a smaller government.

Much like the rest of America.

But as Obamacare becomes more and more of a reality, the majority of Millennials who describe themselves as Independents will start leaning more center right. Just like their fellow adult Independents.

Time for you to go outside and yell at the clouds some more dear. I hear applesauce and gravy go well with goose?

50 percent — of the millennials are Democrats or Democratic-leaning while 34 percent are Republicans or Republican-leaning.

"They don't choose to identify, but they have strong views and their views are views that most people conventionally associate with the Democratic Party," Taylor said. "They believe in a big activist government on some of the social issues of the day — gay marriage, marijuana legalization, immigration. Their views are much more aligned with the Democratic Party."

Everyone catches a cold once in a while, but when the "expert" that was chosen to cure you, after five years of treatment, only makes the illness worse, it hardly seems logical to keep blaming the cold.
Obama promised a lot of things and he promised them with reckless abandon. One has to wonder; when these 'means' of his, these lies, are used over and over, what good 'ends' could he possibly have in mind?

It started before Bush. Clinton was quite instrumental.
And Barack appears to be the culmination.

You have been making some outrageous claims.

This protracted decline has been orchestrated by design long before George W. Bush came on the scene.

For anyone not to find it odd, strange that Barack falls out of the sky like lightning into the democratic nominee, Hilary's lock, is one who has chosen not to consider this high strangeness of Barack Insane Obama and the incidents surrounding his candidacy.

His handlers knew exactly what they were doing. So did Hilary.
