Is the Republican Party America's Achilles Heel?
American Thinker ^ | March 27, 2013 | Steve McCann

The hierarchy of the Republican Party has published a 100 page new and improved game plan entitled the "Growth and Opportunity Project" ostensibly to win future elections and re-tool the party. While this effort is an improvement over similar exercises in recent years, it contains a number of major flaws indicative of the fact that the Party is still operating as if the national political landscape was the same as the 1980's and 90's with a recognition that demographics and news dissemination has changed.

--snip--

The bulk of the conservative movement, and thus the base of the Republican Party, recognizes this reality. They have become increasingly alarmed at the fate awaiting the country if these radicals are not purged from the mainstream of American governance in the 2014 and 2016 election cycles. But when they look to the leadership of the Republican Party they see a nauseating deference to the party in power and the media -- in other words business as usual in Washington. Apparently the Republican Establishment believes it will eventually win when it is their turn if they just can find a way to bribe minorities, particularly Hispanics into voting for them.

--snip--

Their underlying tactic was the epitome of simplicity. Using the backdrop of unprecedented prosperity, the left seized upon the concept of "fairness" and "equality" to promote their agenda. Every agenda item was cloaked in the mantle of fairness and equality and whoever was opposed to any proposition was labeled and demagogued as a bigoted tyrant who favored unfairness and inequality. This message was disseminated by the self-described "progressives"...

--snip--

Instead of writing more "white papers" the Republican Party hierarchy needs to abdicate and turn over the reins to those willing to fight for the future of the American people before it is too late.

One of the issues facing minorities is their mentality. If you like paternalism and seek benefits outside your own independent work and success you’re reallying calling for your own slavery. The trade off is power and authority. You give that away.

It’s a theives society. The people (puebla) hire goons to get what they want by “legal” theft, but there’s no honor among theives and soon the hirelings turn master. That’s the pattern.

Take a look at the demographic shift of immigration and you see people who were violently independent, think Scots-Irish, to people who came not just from repressive, socialist societies, but who liked it and just wanted more.

It’s the culture that makes all the difference.
