I'm not sure where exactly to place this thread, so if the MODS feel it necessary to move please do.
To kick off this week's Republican
National Committee's winter strategy session, which will focus in part on how to broaden the party's appeal to women and minority voters, the RNC on
Thursday launched a website soliciting ideas and constructive criticism about what the party did wrong in 2012—and what it can do better over the
next four years.
And here's the link
for the actual survey
I'm sure most with a critical view of U.S. politics will
yawn at this attempt of public discourse. However, I find it somewhat interesting in that the conservative party "at least internally" have
recognized some party line flaws.
When we talk about political ideology I find myself to be an Independent. There are some attributes of both
parties I agree with, and there are some attributes I don't. As this was a critique of the conservative party I limited my criticisms to that side of
the spectrum, while making it clear that I had criticisms of the Democratic party as well. While I didn't voice my criticisms of the Democratic party
I let it be known there were valid criticisms of that side as well in order to not come across in a partisan manner.
My interest now falls to the
ATS community. What are your viewpoints on this attempt at public discourse? Is it valid, and if so what are the faults within the Republican party
line? Also, what are your feelings on the Democratic party in the same manner?
I'd appreciate no political trolling. Let's keep the discourse
