Last Month Was The Warmest April Ever Recorded

“Climate scientists have been warning about this since at least the 1980s. And it’s been bloody obvious since the 2000s. So where’s the surprise?”

Mitt Romney Sees Only One Possible Explanation For Why Trump Won't Release His Tax Returns

The 2012 GOP presidential nominee says Trump's refusal to release his tax returns is "disqualifying."

By: Sean Renaud

And the Party seems hesitant to rally around the champion. This is becoming interesting if only from an academic stand point.

Few stand in Trump’s way as he piles up the Four-Pinocchio whoppers

TV hosts rarely challenge him when he makes a claim already found to be false.

By: Sean Renaud

And Rand Paul is among the first to kiss the ring. Odd. I figured that one for integrity. Especially since as a virtual libertarian and early drop out nobody would notice if he just quietly went away.

By: Sean Renaud

Maybe. I think if they can quietly drop any of the following they’d be fine.

  1. Religion. If the right treated religion the way the left treats the environmentalists they’d grab up a lot of the libertarians who currently kinda sorta side with them.

  2. Race. Minorities love that religion stuff. So if they stopped being bigotted pricks they’d probably pick up significant sections of the hispanic and blacks.

And believe me I’m looking at Trump and wondering how you come back from this but then I see that we’ve had the same two parties since Lincoln was alive. I feel safe stating they are immortal.

I don’t think ANYTHING could kill the Republican Party long term. They might restructure some but they’ll survive as a brand if nothing else.

By: reckoner

I’m not following you. How am I overestimating those two things?

By: Sean Renaud

I think you’re both overestimating the American Public’s ability to make rational choices and underestimating the power of a two Party system. (To my dismay my Bernie Spirit may be flaring up a bit.)

It wasn’t THAT long ago that the Democrats were the party of the South. A move changed and literally overnight the Republicans became the party of the South and Democrats not. A Republican Party that falls inline behind Trump will have to restructure sure, but the Hillary Wing of the Democrats would be right at home in the Republican camp. And the Libertarians (who seem to be close to having had enough) have more in common socially with Bernie people than the rest of the Republican Party.

Honestly Obama should rescind Merrick. We gave them an olive branch and they didn’t want it. So fuck em.

Republicans Should Confirm Merrick Garland ASAP. | RedState

Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, this is not even a close call.

The crisis in the Republican Party is even worse than it looks

Not only will Republicans nominate Trump and lose badly, but they will have no idea how to do better in 2020.

It started way back in 2009-2010 when the Tea Party erupted on the scene.  At the core of the tea party was a principle that I agreed with so much that I became a conservative activist during that time period.
