The problem is there are more people who are immoral, anti-God, and humanists. It started with Cliton, not that there hasn't been other Presidents before him that had loose morals but he was the first one who was publicly found out before an election and still was elected, then re-elected. Killing unborn babies, gay according to the Bible is an abomination, so no, I don't think the Republician's will ever hold the office of President! Yes, if they stoop as low as the Democrats and we have enough of them.

It is a wonder that nearly 50% of the voters voted for Romney or any Repub at this point in our history. The liberals learned their lesson a long time ago and have gone to work on our schools for nearly 50 years. The fruits of their labor are coming to fruition as I write and will continue this way until the economy and the country collapses.

Some media pundits see in the growing proportion of non-white groups in the population a growing opposition to the Republican Party that will sooner or later make it virtually impossible for Republicans to win presidential elections or even to control either house of Congress. But is demography destiny?

Conventional wisdom in the Republican establishment is that what the GOP needs to do, in order to win black votes or Hispanic votes, is to craft policies specifically targeting these groups. In other words, Republicans need to become more like Democrats.
