The Republican Party seems to be unable to understand that their future is gloomy until they abandon the idea of old white and religious males in the South And Great Plains and Mountain West being enough to win elections.
This country wants total separation of church and state.
This country wants women, African Americans, Latinos, and Gays and Lesbians to be treated with dignity.
The young are voting in greater numbers, and they are voting Democratic, as they do not want the agenda of limited government, states rights, and religion in government that the Republicans are constantly trying to force on them.
The Civil War has been over for 150 years, and states rights will not be the dominant viewpoint of future generations.
Small national government disappeared in the time of the Great Depression 80 years ago, and it is NOT coming back.
This nation is becoming one of fewer whites, and more diversity, and nothing is going to stop that trend.
And women are liberated, and will NOT allow any man to dictate what they can and cannot do with their bodies and their futures.
Until and when the GOP understands these realties, they will be a losing party, and the benefits for the Democratic Party will grow by leaps and bounds!
