    Can a Republican Win 270 Electoral Votes in 2016...or Ever? - The Daily Beast

    This is an excellent article. There are some hard home-truths that need to be faced and dealt with before Republicans can even think about taking back the White House. I am hoping that since there is a veritable shit-ton of Republicans who want their party back, they will find a way to make it happen. Because this "I'm more conservative!" "No, I'M more conservative!" game is doing nothing to win moderates, and you need the moderates. You cannot win without them.

    Today? Almost anyone. After three more years of obama world class fuck ups? Any republican would.

    The democrat brand is just starting its disintegration. Give it awhile.

    It's interesting that as the middle class shrinks because of liberal policies and legislation, the country is being swallowed by debt, the U. S. standing in the world diminishes, more Americans are being made slaves to government entitlements and American morality fades to black...that dimwitted Democrats believe winning elections is all that truly matters.

    The problem for those republicans who want their party back is they’re on the back of a tiger; the fear of being primaried is just too great.

    However crazy or irresponsible a given republican incumbent might be, there’s someone back home even more crazy and more irresponsible ready to take the incumbent’s place.

    Ahh, bring back those golden moral moments in time in the US when:

    1. men could and should beat their wives, children, dogs and their meat with immunity.

    2. men could kill an animal for food, kill an Indian, kill a black man, kill a slant eye and kill each other with impunity.

    3. men could rape a woman, rape a slave and rape a sheep all with nonliabilty.

    4. men could be the only voters, invade and loot, drink and do drugs from the pharmacy and preach from the pulpit with privilege

    We in the GOP will change by reaching out to women, Hispanics and other minorities, and put away the social traditionalist agenda.

    Simply this: there are far more votes to court successfully than what we lose with pissy older white far right conservatives.

    Get over it, guys: it is happening now, and you will love Christie, regardless of what you think now.

    I figure the country has to completely fail before it's renewed and rebalanced, soooo why not.
