Diagnosis GOP: Critical Condition

Now see...that is the problem. You've launched a racially biased salvo at constituents your party needs to attract.  Still holding fast to code words like "typical" American...Anti-white power groups....Special privileges at the expense of white  people.   You  see minorities as " them against us"    What the party needs is sane, rational forward thinkers who truly see an inclusive America.    Your party will continue to lose unless it can accept those Americans who "look" different from you. It  isn't about a black/Hispanic power trip.  Minorities have always voted for all sorts of white candidates.  It's about a party of people refusing to let go of racial biases  even when it's destroying their party.

Nor should they until they discard the extreme fringes of their party that spew hate, demonize " others" & claim this country only for " them". Fantasy fear ginned up your base & fired up the right wing blogeshere. Instead of blaming others...maybe go fix what's wrong with your party. Sanity ruled the election results!

Well actually, free phones pre-date Obama. And the private/ corporate business makes millions/billions on this/other government programs/contracts. Who did you say were the takers?

Not about working harder. It's about working smarter. Difficult for the narrow & closed minded who would exclude a substantial portion of Americans from " their" country.

Conservatives still do not get it. Will never get it. Millions voted for Obama & do not " get free" stuff... It is far easier to blame everyone/everything for the failure of the Republican party. The election voters REJECTED the brand of politics dished out by the party. Even those who stayed home n protest REJECTED he party's treatment of Ron Paul. Women REJECTED party positions. The Asian & Indian voters REJECTED the Republican party mandate. Get a clue it is YOU Republicans.. Persist at your peril

...Folks are comfortable with their racial biases & big cities won't go for political trickery & code words.  Why would "paternalist outreach" from the right be any better than from the left?

Unfortunately, since the 1964-65 Civil  & Voting Rights Act AND flight of the Dixiecrats to the Republican party... it has been about race for the past 50 years .  It has always  been about race.  There are raw  tangible examples of race based ideology coming from the right everywhere you look     The  blogs/websites supporting  the groups mentioned   espouse a racist  " them against us" agenda.   Websites on the left counter with their own brand ...but no where near as vitriolic and degrading.  Extreme conversations remain the same, even on this site...post election.   The anonymity of the Internet allows folks to express true feeling.   You need to reach " in"  rather than "out" .  Won't  happen though.  Folks are comfortable with their
