Response to Ichingcarpenter (Original post)

5. I just wrote this to a wing nut friend who was expressing concern.

 

Americans are vulnerable to platitudes and fundamentalist arguments which have no basis in reality. Republicans survive on that. Problem for them is that Democrats are fairly conservative on most real issues. Republicans are relegated to racism, xenophobia, homophobia, and misogyny to attract a base. Changes in demographics make that increasingly hard.

As the Republicans became more radical, the Democrats occupied the middle. Republican philosophy embraces no compromise. There is no place for them to go.


I purposely left out reference to his climate denial. Another potential can of worms.

Republicans have been backed into a corner. As their numbers deplete, they will die.
