The GOP made a conscious thirty-year choice to build their brand on fear, insecurity, ignorance, religion, division, discredited economic theory, flag-waving, guns and the masterful art of sufficiently inflaming and deceiving people with social issues so that they'll disregard facts, reason and clear evidence that they have been robbed blind by the people they've elected. The diabolical branding worked well for a long time, especially with the advent of a rabid right-wing propaganda radio and television conservative entertainment complex that glorified stupidity, bloviation, thoughtlessness and held nuance, complexity, and modernity in contempt.

The entire Republican platform was a big, beautiful empty cliche of freedom from taxes, government, healthcare, education, infrastructure, regulation and interaction with minorities.

Their mythical Whites R Us sensibility was a still photo of 1950's America reflecting their one and only vision of the future.

They just don't get change - new people, new ideas, new languages, new ways of thinking, new religions, new problems or new solutions. But the only thing constant in the world is change, and that just confuses the reptilian GOP to no end. What's most impressive about the GOP is how their religiosity robs them of any sense of compassion, decency or empathy for others.

The Republican road to redemption will be a long one, because it's difficult to attract voters to embrace you when your actions tell them you hate them.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
