Demographic changes in America dictate that the GOP can't win the minority/young/female vote unless they run a minority candidate AND compete with the Democrats in offering all of them something. Which the republicans cannot do unless they abandon their position on lower taxes, less spending, and reducing debt/deficits. It's pretty amazing that the democrats have managed to secure those voters without really doing a damn thing to earn it, but they you are. The repubs will actually have to do something to get competitive, but how do they do that and still maintain some semblance of fiscal responsibility? I guess the only alternative is wait for the democrats to royally fuck up, worse than they already have the past 4 years, and ride a wave of voter dissatisfaction into office similar to what Obama did in 2008. One wonders though what has to happen to get the voters dissatisfied that much. If they aren't dissatisfied enough now, which they ain't, just how bad is it going to have to get?
