It’s the Tea Party that is mired in the past and unwilling to compromise on something new.

And the relatively sane Norman wants to return authority to the states?

The writer is dead right about one thing, though.

“Today, the GOP’s only unifying philosophy is to be anti-Obama.”

Hahaha. Yeah in Iraq maybe. And you can see what that 3 trillion dollar project looks like. Rubble and a home for ISIS. Republicans won’t seat a President for another 30 years. No one trusts them.

All recent Gallup polls suggest that 29% of voters consider themselves Democrats, 24% Republicans . . . and to the dismay of most media journalists, 47% consider themselves Independent.

Hey, guys in the media. We are not lock-step culture like the Nazis or old Communist countries despite what many in the media want. When reputable polls are taken, most voters, including those who vote in lock-step with either the Democrats or Republicans, are far more heterogeneous thinkers . . . except when they are in the voting booths.

Now more than ever, press freedoms need to be balanced with responsible reporting. Hardly any present-day media pundit (left or right) would receive a passing grade at any reputable journalism school with the garbage that they present as fact.

Where are the immigrants coming from?
– Mexico
– Haiti
– Nigeria
– China
– Indonesia
– Central America

Republicans should realize that the American middle class needs a cohesive culture, and our once-cohesive culture has now been wiped out by immigration on a scale never seen before in world history, assisted by the internet, cell phones, and the immigration lawyer industry.

When the European white man originally came to America, his immigration utterly destroyed the American native Indians. So immigration can be a terrible thing for those on the receiving end. Today the American descendants of those white Europeans are being destroyed in turn by a much, much larger wave of immigration. Republicans take note.
