  •  Big Dilemma (7+ / 0-)

    What is a Republican do if he really hates gays and hates Social Security? Wake up one morning and say, "Wow, I better starting liking these things otherwise it's over"? Become a RINO?

    This head movie makes my eyes rain.

      There’s a split between those who believe the party’s problem is cosmetic, those who believe it’s data-based and those who think it’s ideological and policy-based.
      Unless this means demographically-based, I think they've missed a possibility.

        With data-mining from social media and very sophisticated data base for mobilizing voters to get them to vote and get their friends to vote.

        The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.

    •  It's pretty simple, really (5+ / 0-)

      Problem:  They're wrong about everything.

      Solution 1:  They have to change their minds.

      Solution 2:  They go extinct as a party

      Solution 3:  They grow so weak they open themselves up to a hostile takeover by some third force.

      Solution 3 has already been tried, and failed to revive them.  Solution 1 is inconceivable to them, which brings us back to the problem.  So solution 2 is the likely eventual ending.

      Citizens United defeated by citizens, united.
