Diminishing Returns

The Republican party is shrinking - and it's by their own design.

No, it's not, you drunkard. And you have SloJo to thank for that.

Diminishing Returns

The Republican party is shrinking - and it's by their own design.

They don't want LGBT people, they don't want people of colour. They don't want immigrants - especially those of the non-Aryan variety. They don't want intelligent people who believe in science, and they don't want educated people who are literate and actually read.

They don't want people with enough common sense to know when they're being scammed, or recognize when they're being lied to.

They don't want people who ask questions - or people who don't accept being spoon-fed answers.

They don't want non-Christians - which includes people who choose to follow Christ's teachings, and refuse to abandon the principles taught by the Nazarene.

They don't want people who reject the idea that all problems can be solved by a gun, that all differences can be settled by violence, that all arguments can be won by a show of arms.

They don't want people who choose democracy over authoritarianism, who prefer honesty over hypocrisy, and who have decided that freedom is a right and not something to be doled-out by politicians if and when they choose to do so.

Where all of this is heading is obvious. Eventually, there will be only two groups of Republicans left: the politicians that remind the dwindling faithful who they are permitted to accept as part of their ranks, and the dwindling faithful who continue to fund their campaigns and elect them.

As is always the case with the GOP, they never bother to think things through. Every demographic they vilify, scorn, dismiss as undesirable is a demographic whose votes they've lost forever.

I, for one, look forward to the inevitable implosion when the Republicans realize that the ignorant, illiterate, knuckle-dragging sheep they've based all their hopes on aren't enough to elect them as dog-catchers.

Just posted the whole drunken rant for context. How does she explain Hispanics voting Republican in droves?  Pretty soon they're going to start calling Hispanics "White Adjacent", as they already deride Asian-Americans in that vile manner.

Wait, I missed this. I can't believe a democrat said this.

Oh wait, I can. They have no sense of irony and are basically self-satirizing.

Diminishing Returns

The Republican party is shrinking - and it's by their own design.

They don't want LGBT people, We don't care what they do in the privacy of their own homes or bedrooms; but we don't like the in-your-face-LOVE-my-lifestyle version of LGBT that the Ds seem to want. they don't want people of colour. Like Byron Donalds, TW Shannon, Tim Scott, Winsome Sears and that new-fangled brand of "white supremacist" Larry Elder? They don't want immigrants - especially those of the non-Aryan variety. Like Mayra Flores, you mean? Besides, no one I know opposes LEGAL immigration; it's the masses of unvetted strangers that are sneaking into the country. They don't want intelligent people who believe in science, and they don't want educated people who are literate and actually read. Actually, we would love it if every voter were educated enough to know and understand the Constitution. There are plenty of intelligent and educated people who think the Ds have gone completely off the rails, and will be voting R as a result.

They don't want people with enough common sense to know when they're being scammed, or recognize when they're being lied to. Oh, Irony! Thy name is Nance Greggs!)

They don't want people who ask questions - or people who don't accept being spoon-fed answers. Well, I for one have plenty of questions--which sure won't be answered by President Poopy Pants, or Karine Jean-Pierre.

They don't want non-Christians wrong - which includes people who choose to follow Christ's teachings, and refuse to abandon the principles taught by the Nazarene. What do you know about Christ's teachings, you ignorant heathen.

They don't want people who reject the idea that all problems can be solved by a gun, that all differences can be settled by violence, that all arguments can be won by a show of arms. How dumb can one DUmmie be?

They don't want people who choose democracy over authoritarianism, who prefer honesty over hypocrisy, and who have decided that freedom is a right and not something to be doled-out by politicians if and when they choose to do so. Says an adherent of the party of lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccines-or-else!

Where all of this is heading is obvious. Eventually, there will be only two groups of Republicans left: the politicians that remind the dwindling faithful who they are permitted to accept as part of their ranks, and the dwindling faithful who continue to fund their campaigns and elect them.

As is always the case with the GOP, they never bother to think things through. Every demographic they vilify, scorn, dismiss as undesirable is a demographic whose votes they've lost forever. Lots of us--of all colors, races, ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientation see ourselves first and foremost as AMERICANS, and intend to vote like AMERICANS and not hyphenated whatevers.

I, for one, look forward to the inevitable implosion when the Republicans realize that the ignorant, illiterate, knuckle-dragging sheep they've based all their hopes on aren't enough to elect them as dog-catchers. And I, for one am looking forward to
election night 2022, when I will be watching the DUmp meltdown when they realize they have been washed away by the historic read wave..

I think widder (as in "widow") Nan is expressing more of a hope than an expectation.

All my life, which hasn't been a short one, I've heard about the imminent disappearance of the Republican party.

Welcome to November 2022, and thereafter.

And one has to keep in mind the Democrat party is the party of abortion, which has certainly retarded their own growth.

In my junior year of college I had a class entitled, "History of Political Parties." The professor predicted that Watergate was the death knell of the Republican Party. He predicted that it would wither away to just a regional party. A year-and-a-half later we had the Reagan Revolution, which saved us from the disaster that was Jimmy Carter.

If that professor were still around today, I wonder if he would predict that the Democrat Party will become the party of weirdos, criminals, and drug addicts.

He probably would have predicted "demographics are destiny", and that that would have been the death of the republican party.

That's a really odd statement since I have never met a non-Christian who chose to follow the teachings of Christ and followed His principles. The very definition of a non-Christian is someone who rejects Christ. Someone who rejects Christ automatically rejects His teachings and principles.

The only type of individual who would make a statement like that would be someone who doesn't understand Christianity (though, no doubt if you asked them, they would claim they do).

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site
