    My best advice is to open your minds and your hearts.

    Stop fearing, and/or despising, and/or distrusting poor people, people of color, LGBTQ people, women, union workers, and immigrants. Stop rejecting science. Drop the superiority complex you have in regards to foreign countries and cultures.

     Stop maligning any religion that doesn't fit your version of Christianity.

     Stop dismissing any and every bit of information that doesn't come from FOX News.

     Stop focusing so perversely on ludicrous non-issues, like your obsession with "English-only" movements, your false claims of wars on things like religion and Christmas, and your misplaced paranoia about having your guns taken away.

    You may also want to stop talking about rape.

    You used to distinguish yourselves from Democrats and progressives by your aggressive defense of economic liberty and personal freedom and by your fiscal and foreign policy, but now you distinguish yourselves by your resistance and hostility toward a world that is rapidly changing around you.
