When Presidential elections have to be decided by the Supreme Court, it's a pretty good indicator of a divided nation. You guys have missed the real
issue with the GOP, which is their core constituents.
Evangelical Christians, 2nd Amendment people, and a solid core of Bigots are the heart and soul of today's Republican Party. Any other Republican is
all back of the bus.
Evangelicals are against Gay Marriage and dead set against abortion. No compromise...
2nd Amendment people sold their souls to the NRA. No compromise on gun rights.
The bigots will fight an immigration bill to their last breath and still think women should be seen and not heard...again, no compromise.
Politics are all about compromise. We have a divided country because the core values of the core groups of the Republican Party can not compromise
their principles. I respect that, but look at the consequences. This means the party is doomed, as this country is no longer comprised of old white
guys and 50% of this country are women who are just beginning to take notice of ridiculous Republican positions concerning women's issues. And
that's it in a nutshell.
There is no way to save the GOP. You guys might as well call them the George Wallace Party, because in a few years they will be reduced in power to
just the deep south, as they sink into irrelevance in national elections.
I respect the Republican Party's right to commit suicide.
