“We’re going to repeal the bill!” shout the angry losers. That’s of course not all that they are shouting these days. “Baby-killer” and “Fag!” and of course, “Niggers!” Quite the adolescent minds from the far-right side of life. That’s surely an ugly place to live. I can’t imagine anyone enjoying much of life in that cesspool of society. Hate rules, oddly, most claim to be Chrisitans, but then, they’d pimp their own grandmothers if it was in their best interest.
Several Republican members of the House have announced their departure earlier this year. Two senators as well. Ohio’s George Voinovich wants to get out as does Kit Bond of Missouri. They’re too much of statesmen to exist any longer in the current GOP. Four other GOP senators are not seeking reelection. In the House, 19 Republicans are retiring.
As has been noticed of late, the Republican Party continues to purge centrist members and has attracted more and more right-wing candidates. Now that the Health Care Bill has passed, the GOP “faithful” as they are called [those who vote in primaries] want red meat! They want hard-line, right-wingers to run and will in fact choose the reddest and rawest in the primaries.
The trouble is that America is not hard-right, but center to center-right. Those hard-line GOP candidates need to get 51% of the vote and many Americans are not as conservative as these candidates represent. Even though the base is ‘revved up’ and angry over this health care bill, that does not mean that centrist America is. The ‘kill the bill’ and ‘repeal the bill’ Republicans may not be as ‘hot’ as they think they will be this Fall. If this is all that they have to offer their constituents, then their plan to ‘take over Congress’ will fizzle.
As the party moves farther and farther to the right, they will find themselves isolated from the larger majority of Americans who will regard them as radicals and they will vote for the more moderate voices to govern them. America does not tolerate extremists. The GOP will, in fact, purge itself out of relevancy. Within my lifetime, I predict.
