If the comments about Governor Christie are representative of today's Republican Party, then I no longer consider myself a Republican. Differences of opinion are now expressed through name calling and worse. I have no desire to be associated with people who cannot express themselves in a civil manner. I have sadly come to the conclusion that far right Republican zealots are so blind to the changing demographics in the U.S., they don't realize that their political base and influence will continue to diminish for many years, if not decades, to come. And as a result, winning the White House is becoming more of a dream than a reality.
