Not a hijacking at all, just the logical outcome of Dimmycrap “principles.”
I am going to get one for my Catholic dad who wouldn’t vote for a Republican if it was the last person on earth.
Hubert Humphrey in 1972 warned that, "a single narrow, ideological, social or political elite threatened to capture the Democrat Party... he said that since Franklin Roosevelt the Party has managed to put together coalitions which form majorities under the principle that the Democrat Party was the party of the average American working family."He also complained on one of the Sunday morning interview programs that "I believe a party should *stand* for something."
Yes, but there are still a lot of people who will vote Democrat no matter what.
I don't think any cars should be granted public benefits, but I wouldn't recognize a homosexual coupe if I saw one. Is there something about the color or decoration that gives it away?
Neither one of these parties are worthy of the true Roman Catholic vote and I predict that will become increasingly true in the coming years. Both of these parties have lost their soul.
The Democrat elite have also lost their so called elite media. The big three, the newspapers are all dying and neither conservatives nor young read, listen or watch.
So the party becomes an even more echo chamber of leftists.
Rush withdrew his earlier projection about Hillary having an 80% chance of winning a LONG, LONG time ago.
He doesn’t see either Hillary or Obama as winning, given the outstanding success of “Operation Chaos”, and neither do I. Our side will win in spite of our candidate. (I just ordered my “Operation Chaos” T-shirt, ball cap and bumper stickers at Rush’s web site today.)
I can’t wait to see the cat fight between Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Clinton. It will go down in history.:)
Thanks for a good review.
The party was hijacked in 1963, it just took five years for the old guard to get blown out and the changes to surface.
the problem with this topic is that the analysis myopically focuses on the ‘secular’ side of the dims ‘progressive-fascist-marxism’ and, under the breath, would readily excuse their economic marxism if they - the dims - were not so anti-religious
among many ‘social conservatives’ in and out of the gop, is a willingness to use big government, if only for the ‘right’ purposes
