GOP relegated to status of 'regional' party




From the LA Progressive:


"...Now, the Republicans are relegated to the South — an extremist backwater party of white heterosexual Christian fundamentalism, cultural intolerance, and political irrelevance. They embrace xenophobia, islamophobia, and homophobia as America becomes a browner, more diverse nation. They uphold the plutocratic interests of free market capitalism at a time when the public demands greater government intervention in the economy, as a check against corporate excess and upward wealth redistribution."...

Terrific article, well worth the effort to click on the link.

Catch you later.....

I've been think, think, thinking on how Democrats can win over the deep South (where yours truly resides). I think Universal Healthcare will help. But there's a lot of work to do here.
