The path for GOP victory is the same one taken by Reagan and both Bushs. It is the working family Reagan democrats whose jobs were exported. Bring back the jobs is to bring back the votes. BTW The immigrants sought after would be gathered in the working family vote.

Previous GOP vote gathering techniques such as ‘we’re pro-life’, ‘we’re more pro-war’ and ‘we’re anti-communist’ have worn out their welcome. Now it’s the jobs, stupid. But if the GOP just wants people searching to cut government and bulge their pockets, say adios to the presidential winning circle.

Good points. The country’s changed a lot since the Reagan era, though. There once was a conservative Democrat bloc that Republicans could have for the asking. Those people have either died or become Republicans or become liberal Democrats (something similar happened to liberal Republicans). For Republicans, getting over 50% is harder than it was a generation ago.

Keeping jobs American was a huge part of what brought the union democrats to Reagan. Unfortunately the modern globalist republicans will never accept the Reagan way on that. In very specific industries Reagan gave importers a choice, build here or pay a tariff.

He didn't go hog wild with the tariffs but he targeted them for a specific effect and I think we can credit him for the "Japanese" cars made in America today.

Romney not being pro-life and other things, hurt him badly and has threatened the future of the GOP.
