Next up: Republicans embrace immigration reform, which just a year ago was rampant socialism.

What's great is their strategy for integrating more black and gay voters.

"Policy changes? Are you crazy? No silly, we are going to hire people to infiltrate them and tell them how great we are. Hey they voted for that Kenyan Socialist for a pack of cigarettes or a hit of crack or a phone, how hard can it be to get them to vote for us if we give them like, whaddya think, 5 buckets of fried chicken? Should 5 do it?" What else do they like? Wait are we talking about the gays or the blacks? I think the gays would rather have like salads or that fried squid appetizer thing or something like that, right?"

which party will go out of it's way more to AVOID criticism to get a vote?

i said it several months ago. these two side shows known as the Dems and the Reps will be so similar that it may actually force them to finally focus on things of substance and do something while in office.

because if you are similar to the person you are running against, you will have to take it up a notch to distinquish yourself.

I always love the "well all the democrats were racists and the republicans freed the slaves, those thankless minorities ughhh" sentiments floating around by people who don't understand the southern strategy and realignments and the fluidity of party as it relates to political ideology

Seems Repubilcans needs to hurry up and speed up running their states/cities budgets into the ground if they're going to get it done in the next 5 years.

common knowledge tells us that the winner always writes the history. They replaced all southern politicians with northern carpetbaggers to do so. i don't care who freed the slaves cause party lines have distorted so many times through history. But I get tired of hearing the south take the bad name when all they were doing was fighting an oppressive government. The same government that came up with segragation. Which went hand in hand with voting districts. political science 101. There are plenty of articles published by british historians that document the war from a commerce standpoint. If the north did not sign the emancipation proclamation(which surfaced at the end of the war, not before it) the brits would assist the south in re-opening supply lines. So in reality the slaves can thank the brits. while for some reason we thank lincoln. When we should point out that he opened that national debt to fight his own country that he was oppressing!!!

Emancipation proclamation.... Freed a sum total of zero slaves. If the war was about ending slavery, why did a man who abhorred the concept lead the confederate army? No, the union needed a rally cry and Lincoln was a politician busy jailing dissenting voices in a ship off the coast of Long Island. In a bad spot he "consulted his conscience" and donned a feel-good cause. Meanwhile when the war ended, the best thing to happen for many former slaves was they were now able to keep their children as their own. Too bad they were still seen as less than people by their "emancipators", given a slave's wage, and forced to the fringes of society while those same "emancipators" wrote in a whole new era of Jim Crow laws.

Yeah, they taught all of that in our wonderful public school system. I'm just waiting for the country to catch up with libertarians. Not holding my breath though. It's all about who can vote themselves a promise of the most free stuff while convincing the masses that this treasure trove will last forever and that the check is really just stuck in the mail.

Not completely true, right now you've got Republican extremist winning out in the primaries and getting stomped in the general election. Those extremist are not similar to the opposing canidate.

Not to mention that those extremists do not have the same views as the majority of Republicans.

there needs to be a constituionalists party. I like to think libertarian is the way to go(and given our choices, pretty much a no brainer) but there is misconceptions of what a libertarian is even within thier own party. The people that vote rep will see the party lines merging as both parties are in favor of big gov. the arguement for them is who controls it. But whatever the outcome those voters need a new alternative fast as the mid terms approach quicker everyday. i think freedom loving taxpayers can find a common place in a party structured with the intent of honoring our constitutional doctorine and its fullest intentions.

the fact that the reps have been so obscured in thier beliefs and principles gave birth to these "extremist" though. i myself am conservative in nature, but find it hard to see traces of those principles within party leaders, anymore. the only thing the reps seem to be working on these days is thier own demise. And it pains me to say that, but its true.
