15% IS large when you consider that the real proportion of self-described homosexuals in the general population is somewhere around 1-2% at most.

The GOP's 'birth' did not take 'a decade or more'. What WAS required was the realization on the part of people with political will and vision that the 'old way' (the Whigs) was no longer working. The GOP now, 150 years later, like the Whigs of the 1850's, does not have the will or vision to deal with the Socialist challenge of the Democrats. The BEST thing the Tea Party conservatives, and like-minded folks could do, at this point, is to disengage and disembark (continued)
