Why wouldn't they be electable if more republicans support the "radical right wing candidates" according to you? That doesn't even make sense, and you have no proof to what you're saying, all you did was make up a hypothesis and pretend it's the truth.

Because the republican base doesn't make up >50% of the population...

So you're saying 100% of the population actually votes?

A lot of the Republican party problems do lie in their extreme religious views. Statements such as "god intended that woman to be raped" will not only distance the left and even the independents, but moderate conservatives such as myself. I have stated so many times how much I loathe religion because I am so pro science, and religion just clashes with many aspects of science. Notably, evolution. But as the information age treks forward, people are also coming to realize that the left loves illegal aliens for votes, race baiting, and keeping people dependent on government so they keep voting for them. They're more concerned with votes than the country, moreso than the Republicans IMO. lol @ people who think the left is any better.

You made the post that I quoted, which which I disproved in my post. You don't have to whine about it.

I think they are better, and I think your attitude that they care more about votes than their country is telling of your preconceived notions.

A whole flyer? Well that proves it.

Do I need to link you to right wing watch for you to admit that isolated issues don't determine the entire party's platform or ideals or what?

You can link whatever you like, but I still stand by the belief that the left panders to illegals and minorities for votes by keeping them dependent on government with entitlement programs. The right doing something is completely irrelevant to the left doing something that I am stating they do, so by all means - link away!

Their children will be able to vote, and they'll remember how the liberals pandered to their parents, so they'll return the favor by voting for them.
Do you think they don't have this planned out in the long term? Or do you not know how to think ahead?

Hispanics vote democrat for the same reasons Jews and Indians do: the GOP's obsession with anglo-superiority.

The political history of the United States' two major parties is readily available from many sources, I will not be doing your homework.
