I've said elsewhere that this was probably the last election where the Republicans stood a real chance of gaining the American Presidency with a program that mainly appeals to prosperous suburban whites and holds little appeal to most women and almost no appeal at all to racial minorities.
If the GOP is to survive, what do you think it would have to look like? What could it possibly look like?
Only if you're trying to press it with your head...
So, you know about my devil horns.
Unseen! You told me that was our little secret! Now here you are, blurting it out to everyone!
Glad someone finally got/addressed the cat reference :D
Heyyyy, I did. I laughed, did you see that? ;-)
One's sense of humor does not need to be suttle....LOL
I guess in these media-saturated times,you can't just go around talking like a fascist before the convention and then try to become Ike Eisenhower after the convention. The GOP will need to start talking the same game both before and after. BUT, it also needs a new game.
@Arcus I bloody love that pic! Nice one :)
I hear its actually slightly more than 50% at the moment.
Deep down, I think many in the GOP are counting on such things as voter suppression and the elimination of unions to bypass elections altogether and eventually deliver them a fascist dictatorship. Don't laugh. As soon as George W. Bush was elected, some in Congress were pushing for a repeal of the Presidential term limit and openly imagining him as dictator. Then, when Arnold Gropenfeuhrer was elected governor of California, those same neocons (read "fascists") pushed for a Constitutional amendment allowing Presidents to be foreign-born.
At the bottom of all this is their deep yearning for America to be ruled by a right wing, corporate-backed, Christian-approved dictator; and not just of the U.S. - of the WORLD. Walrus-faced John Bolton, I'm sure, would eagerly offer himself as the perfect fit for the office of tyrant-in-chief. And the power behind the throne will be the corpse of Rupert Murdoch, still projecting himself the emperor of media. Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity can compete to be the propaganda minister without even changing their teleprompters. Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin will take turns being Bolton's Eva Braun. Minnesota misanthrope, Michelle Bachmann, and that moose-hunting lady who passed briefly through the governor's office in Alaska will be but a dim memory. Meanwhile, Donald Trump will still be demanding Obama's college transcripts.
I'm all for a global government... once we can work out a system of government that isn't corruptable and gives everyone a fair vote and respects human rights.
