Eventually though I do still think the big money conservatives will dump the current racist/sexist/homophobic faction which dominates the Republican party. Or the GOP goes the way of the Whigs.<quoted text>You are speaking about a brand of Republicanism that will never return. Today's Republican party has subsumed the worst of the old racist Democrats and Dixiecrats. There was a reason why MLK was a Republican. If you are waiting for the return of a socially conscious Republican party, I hope you have a comfy chair.
Either way, it looks like I'll be voting for the Dems for the foreseeable future.
