The GOP need to pound simple truths home to minorities and the poor on the common ground
High debt leads to high inflation leads to 12 dollar milk and 8 dollar gas. They are the party of school choice, and want to cut out middle-man-union which looks out for their teacher pensions instead of child performance. USA doubled edu. spending and test scores have stagnated since, 1970s, so why should unions have any influence in any reform? There are other sensible and simple messages they could repeat as a platform and party. They need to define these items and show how they are different from the Democratic Party. Only then will they be the party I recognized when I first entered politics.
