An article by David Frum who used to be one of your own until the extreme conservatives kicked him to the curb. It was written just after the clubbing that your candidate got last Nov. and judging by the extremists herein it's no wonder that you are a shrinking minority. You haven't learned a damn thing. You just double down on "stupid", to borrow a term from Gov. Jindal.
And here's some polling analysis that helps explain your shrinking status:
I sort of understand your frustration and lashing out continuously at the perceived boogeyman of (pick the flavor de jour - socialism, fascism, environmentalism, etc.) but if your so damn smart why are your numbers shrinking? You represent an antiquated and fictitious view of America that really has never existed and that's where you seem to want to return to. I saw this the other day and as a bumper sticker it fits the situation perfectly.
"Politics is like driving a car- Put it in D to go forward and R to go backward"
I'll leave you with this link to a good history lesson describing the rise of ultra conservatism in your party. I would guess that many folks here already understand the history of the so-called "white flight" from the Southern Dixiecrats to the Republican Party and Nixon’s (Lee Atwater who btw went to his grave ashamed of what he’d done)‘southern strategy’. Others may not. It’s long and I know that those with a short attention span won’t read it, but…..there it is.
Predictions of the demise of the GOP is not a new thing. Folks have been predicting for generations the same thing. Now can you tell me why it has not occurred yet?
I know the reason, I just want to hear yours.
