  •  The "culture war" is far from over (16+ / 0-)

    Republicans still control half of our state governments.  They will continue with their wars on women, the poor, minorities, immigrants, voters, and all the rest.  Okay, we've won a few battles, but let's not declare victory just yet.

    •  And they will continue the wars against Americans (5+ / 0-)

      in order to serve their corporate masters and the religious zealots that still help them get elected.  I think those religious zealots will slowly start abandoning the Party that only uses them to get elected.  The other big constituency, the racists, are also going to fall by the wayside as they age/die.  Demographics are truly not good for Republicans: women, minorities, homosexuals, immigrants, workers, young people, etc.  YET, beware of a dying animal as they are still very dangerous!

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

    •  In the long run they can't win (5+ / 0-)

      Like the Mullahs in Iran they can still bite, but time ain't on their side. The nation's demographics are changing too fast.  When Pope John Paul II went to Ireland one fifth of the nation turned out to see him. Now 35% of Ireland no longer identifies as religious. That's in less than two generations. The same thing is quickly happening here.

        But beware complacency.  Our work will never be truly finished -- even in two generations.  We can't let our guard down for even a moment.

    •  But if groups like FotF (0+ / 0-)

      start pulling back the funding for the GOP campaigns, and more important stop providing the boots on the ground to go out and drum up support, how many of those Republicans will even want to stay in office?
