The GOP is destined to go the way of the dinosaur in a few years. Ok few years might be exaggerating a little…Don’t get me wrong, small government and debt reduction makes sense, but that’s about it.
The GOP is being destroyed by their lack of tolerance and vision for the future. I always believed that everything can be refined…social programs, compassion doesn’t have to fall victim to a small budget or small government. You can stick to principles of inclusion and tolerance, while doing more. It’s about being smarter. If the GOP doesn’t start to understand that the black & white view of the world doesn’t exist, and never really did, then the party will die off.
Besides the stuff that makes sense, debt and small government, the GOP is too elitist and exclusionary. This country is no longer just white people. It’s no longer just Catholic. It’s a diverse mix of compassionate, more educated people. The GOP also needs to rid itself of all of its contradiction. Guns & bibles. Pro-Life & Pro-Death. Worse, Pro-Life & no healthcare for the child. Fiscal responsibility & over sized militaries. Less regulation & rules, except when it comes to women’s rights and marriage. People are getting smarter. People are becoming more tolerant.
One of the biggest negative personality traits of Republicans is that they don’t understand how to believe in what they believe in WHILE allowing others to believe in their own, different principles. In other words, Republicans just don’t get how to let others live as they choose. Just because you don’t agree with it, doesn’t mean others have to be forced to believe that as well. Just don’t do it! Don’t agree with abortion? Then don’t do it! Don’t agree with gay marriage? Then don’t do it! I don’t like guns, but I don’t believe in making others get rid of them. People may argue, well liberals are doing the same thing, forcing their views on others, and that’s completely wrong.
Here’s the difference in case you are still confused: Most democrats, liberals, and even some conservatives believe in principles but at the same time they don’t let their principles limit or prevent others from pursuing their beliefs and principles.
Tolerance is key. And this doesn’t just mean tolerance on the surface by having a couple of minorities in your photo ops, it means really being admired by all. The future is a nation of smarter, more tolerant people.
Choose your future GOP. Or natural selection (or God, if you prefer) will choose it for you. Look at the division in the party already…it’s already begun. Don’t drink too much Tea.
