There's another quote:

Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives.

John Stuart Mills

And right on que, Dehommey comes in to contribute an insult. Glad we have you around to further all conversations.

Liberalism is a mental disease...and as Jesse Jackson Jr. proved it...a mental hospital stay doesn't keep you from being elected.

There is an old saying

If you are not liberal before you are 30, then you have no heart, if you are still liberal after 30, then you have no head.

To be fair there is a reason this is an old saying, it is because it comes from a time when Republicans were ACTUAL fiscal conservatives and it was before the Tea Party and Fox News drew the party to the looney bin forcing Republicans to become detached with reality.

And plus that's Winston Churchill referring to the early/mid-20th century British political atmosphere

You act like such a kid.

This has nothing to do with Dems or Repubs. Just that with age, your outlooks tend to change. Take a deep breath and use your head instead of your emotions for once. Goodness.

I think the Republicans and Democrats should get a divorce, and its high time mom (the Democrats) start seeing someone else. There's this guy named Libertarian who I think would treat her right.

"The Republican Party hasn't done a great job, and should be ashamed of itself, for not going after all Americans," Gidley said. "We can't take any one group for granted and need to look for ways to appeal to black and Latino voters."

-Republican political observer, J. Hogan Gidley

"This race wasn't a problem of candidate, it was a problem of fit,"..."The GOP no longer fits the modern electorate. We have fundamental issues with Latinos, young voters and women"

-Stated by Anonymous GOP Strategist to "The Note"

Straight from the horses mouth. Perception is reality; the perception is that the Republican party is against minorities and women. Whether or not that is true doesn't matter because that is the perception. Change or go extinct.

To be fair, the Democratic Party also didn't go "after all Americans" either ...

Perception is a huge issue. Just like that thing with the NYC marathon in the aftermath of Sandy. Would it have actually taken services and priority over the victims of the storm, probably not, or at least not much... but the perception was that it was, so it was a PR nightmare and they cancelled it.

Americans have constantly been told by the media that Republicans hate minorities and the poor so that view tends to stick... then with some republican policies and idiots like that guy with his "legitimate rape" comments, that kind of thing is perpetuated.

Just perception, eh?

You ever heard of the southern strategy?
