Got to admit that GOP = RIP is true but for different reasons. First, the GOP REFUSES to speak ... about anything. And, if I am not mistaken, communication requires ... well communication. As for "Evangelicals/christians will never stand for it" is just the opposite. The fastest growing churches in the US (and Europe) are evangelical Christian churches. And, the growth is YOUNG people, not the old. The old folks are stuck in the classic American churches -- Methodist, Prespyterian. And they are seeing a decline in numbers and all the while the evangelicals are rapidly growing. I would say that the GOP needs to stick to classic social issues and recruit this fast growing youth base.

Great article, but I have not given up on Millenials. My son and his friends served in Afghanistan and Iraq. Volunteered to serve. They are not done. They have seen true poverty. They have seen true hatred. They are not so easily lied to by liberals. Have faith. God put together a shining city on the hill from an improbable cast 230 years ago. I believe that we have a new generation that will keep it.
Hmmmmm... I am very skeptical. 18% seems very high compared to many people were truly in need. But 18% seems very low compared to the number of true believers of socialism. And, the "Worse Off" category also seems very low ... compared to the actual impact on doctor availability and premium costs.
Yes. That is exactly what he thinks. As a New York liberal once told me "That's not your money!" Seriously. According to the liberals we are all just sharecroppers that are allowed to keep whatever the Emperor decides we should keep.
Kudos to the "deserters". Fewer tax dollars going to fund this fraud.
It is not important what most northerners cared about. The Republican platform of 1860 contained what was perceived to be a promise of abolition. Plain and simple. And, with a Republican President, the South believed that their days of owning slaves was over. The states rights thing was their -- very valid -- argument. Lincoln's speech on why a state does not have the right to leave the union can be found online or at a library. You might want to read it because I am pretty sure that it is not covered in most high school history classes.
Brainwashed? So, why exactly did the South leave the Union? Oh yeah. Because the Republican platform of 1860 clearly states that it was their intent to abolish slavery. The other thing in the platform were several paragraphs about "disunion". So, when the South did that "disunion" thing to avoid the inevitable abolishment of slavery, then the war began. Your argument is circular because the truth does not suit you.
