  •  This is the conversation my SO and I had today (10+ / 0-)

    The youth are sick and tired of Republican antiquated policies, sick of having no optimism for their future, sick of being told what to do with their sex lives, bodies, and religious views. They are sick of Fox Nation, sick of the Big Banks, sick of racism and sexism, just sick to death of the status quo. The youth have had enough of authoritarianism.  

    Women, people of color, the middle class and the poor turned out in droves to vote, and won.  This was a mandate against the aging white Ruling Elite.

    I predict every election cycle from 2008 on, the Republican Party will become more and more irrelevant, until they fade away.  And, I'm sure the Republican leadership thinks this, too.  Which is why Obama predicted an internal GOP civil war if he was reelected. The nation's demographics will require more Democratic policies since the youth are quite politically savvy (thank you Occupy, thank you Jon Stewart, thank you Rock the Vote) and Repubs simply will not be voted in if the GOP doesn't tack left.

    My crystal ball, anyway.

    Republicans...What a nice club...of liars, cheaters, adulterers, exaggerators, hypocrites and ignoramuses. Der Spiegel -6.62, -6.92
