A lot of people seem to be finally grasping that there real structural problems within the Republican Party.
What they are missing... is this isn't new.
Now think hard... back to your civics or poly sci or maybe even history classes. Do you remember a term they used to use; The Solid South? It was political jargon that referred to the way the South was just one giant block vote for the Democrats.
In the grand scheme of things... the Republican Party has not been the socially conservative party. That would be the democrats. That would be the South. And that's why everything gets so uncomfortable when people like Ann Coulter start slamming the Democrat party for fighting against integration. The people she's slamming that were once democrats... are now republicans. So when she starts talking about how MLK was a republican... the older part of what is now the GOP base... knows she is criticizing them.
The Republican party has been a party of fiscal conservatism... at least when it suits them. But in reality that's not the party's historical forte'. That's just for headlines. The GOP was founded on the principles of a very strong central government. It was the anti-states-rights party. The Democrats were the party of States Rights
In the 50s as the radical left gained more and more power in the democratic party... the base shifted. Remember the Reagan Democrats? People always ask what politician can go bring those people back to the GOP. Umm... I have some bad news for ya guys. Those Reagan Democrats... aren't Democrats anymore.
They are the GOP base now. The South is still Solid. Its just solid Republican now.
So you have a giant disconnect between the power players in the GOP elite... and the base.
The base is made of the people who used to be the Democrat base in the 1950s.
The GOP leadership hates those people. I mean really hates those people.
So when you see Paul Boehner pull a compromise stunt like he pulled... remember... he didn't betray the base. He didn't betray the party.
The Party is for European style elitist strong central government. Big military. Big Business. Big Banks. Fiscal responsibility if it means tax cuts for them or their friends.... and that's the only time.
That's the real GOP.
Stop being mad at them for being exactly what they have always been.
There is no conservative party in the US right now. There is no nationalist party.
Its time to stop pretending the GOP is either.
Its time to create the American Nationalist Party.
