The problem is worse than image for the GOP. The problem is systemic starting with a very radical left public school system that sends it's best graduates to radical left universities which then send its best graduates into education, government and commerce. These people become the influencers - just look at the media with the exception of Fox. The spiteful and brutish behavior of the NPS is a portent of what is shaping America. These people have to become disenchanted with their indoctrination before we have any chance of turning this trend around.
