Readers might have noticed that I take great pleasure from the almost certain demise of today's Republican Party. I sometimes feel guilty that I have given up on the Republicans. I was a Republican for the first two decades on my life, back when both parties put the good of the country first and most politicians of both parties could be counted on to eventually compromise on issues of national importance.
It's not so much that I have given up on the Republican Party, it's more that the Republican Party has decided that only people who think like them are worthy of representation in Congress. They believe the rest of us are either parasites, illegals, socialists, thugs, or atheists. In other words, not real Americans, and thus our needs and desires are not worthy of any consideration. The trouble (for them) is, our side is growing fast and their side is shrinking almost as fast.
This Republican Party is dying and deservedly so. The Founding Fathers would be appalled at their exclusionary actions. By 2020 they will have little national influence. Sadly, until they wither away to insignificance, little will get done in Congress and America will slide further into third-worldness - and I'm not sure we will ever completely recover. So, the quicker the Republican Party dies, the sooner we can rebuild our country and put people back to work before we have a large permanent population of unemployed and unemployable.
