  1. You would think if the republican strategy is to be the party of white rich men they could at least think about legislating a better environment for expanding those who have a chance to be wealthy rather than simply adding to the largess of the already wealthy. Their potential voter pool also seems to include those who are homophobic, racist, misogynistic, gun nuts and evangelinuts… Is that enough voters? I’d say at the state level in several states YES, but not nationally. They’ll need to step up the efforts on choosing who gets to vote and limiting the voters who might vote against them. Ya know, increase the states where you can have bullets but not ballots; babies but not healthcare for those babies; reproductive rights only if you’re wealthy enough… I don’t underestimate these efforts!

    Here’s an interesting ‘chart’ that doesn’t even take women’s votes into account, only shows voter turnout and population projections by “white,” “black,” “Asian,” “Hispanic,” and “other.”

  2. I encourage this potential republican activity! đŸ™‚

    Liz Cheney’s decision to challenge Wyoming U.S. Senator Mike Enzi in a Republican primary next year sets up the type of divisive, intraparty fight that Republican leaders vowed to avoid after the 2012 elections.

    Today’s post got it absolutely correct: the basis of our corrupt government is “you fund me and I’ll fund you. Let those in need go to hell.”

    • Sad to say – some of the most loud and proud self-proclaimed Conservative Christians are the cheerleaders for the corruption you speak of so eloquently
