The road back begins with realizing the GOPe aren’t republicans. They’re democrats - the GOP was a temporary vehicle for them to win their districts.

When I presume this to be true, what has been happening makes almost perfect sense. Presume that Boehner and his henchmen have been bought and paid for and you will not be surprised about what is happening daily now.

In the totality of Congress, we now have the appearance of representation but without enough significant actual representation. Who can say how long ago this was put into effect. I believe it.

This phenomena started right after the Reagan years and politicians (Dimwits) saw how local districts starting going red. Take Texas, before the late 80’s to 90’s Texas was a Democrat stronghold at the district and state level, in the span of a decade it went red. Amazingly it is still predominately red by district, but the state as a whole populus vote (thanks to illegals and dim metroplexes) maybe purple by 2020.

These GOPe people say a way to get elected by riding the wave. There are a few who may have “awaken” to switch to a R but most just took one step right and said looky I am a Republican, case Rick Perry. We will see whether his switch to partial Republican years ago can stand the next few years when it counts standing up to Nobamacare and the likes.
