Who will save the Republican Party?

Soon­er or lat­er, every­one will fig­ure out that my polit­i­cal views tend to the lib­er­al. One result of that is I tend to read lib­er­al sources. Notably blogs at Talk­ing Points Memo and The New Repub­lic.

Ever since the elec­tion, I have seen many posts on var­i­ous out­lets con­cern­ing the dimin­ish­ment of the Repub­li­can Par­ty. Today brings yet one more.

The GOP is becom­ing a region­al par­ty. The GOP is increas­ing­ly com­prised of only the extreme right base. Etc. Etc.

Who will save the Repub­li­can Par­ty? Are we in dan­ger of becom­ing a one par­ty country?

Don’t wor­ry about it.

The Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty will see to it that the Repub­li­can Par­ty will enjoy a resur­gence. Maybe not in 2010. Maybe not in 2012. But the time will come when the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty will just get too car­ried away and the coun­try will look to the Repub­li­can Par­ty for salvation.

Just like the Repub­li­can Par­ty was the recent sal­va­tion of the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Party.

Rumors of the death of the Repub­li­can Par­ty are great­ly exaggerated.

07/​22/​2013 Update: The New Repub­lic changed up their web site and the link I post­ed became bro­ken. I have changed the link to what I believe is the page I orig­i­nal­ly linked to. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the con­tent of the TNR post was most­ly in a video which does not seem to be avail­able anymore.

  1. In that case (and par­don me for being a Cana­di­an) the cur­rent­ly elect­ed Demo­c­ra­t­ic par­ty has to put in action as many pro­vi­sions it can to make every­body in the US equal before their time runs out. I believe your sys­tem allows peo­ple 4 years, twice (if they’re re-elec­tred), and that’s it?

    You seem like a very sen­si­ble and non-judg­men­tal person.

  2. We are already equal. All men are cre­at­ed equal.

    We only need to get to where we behave in accor­dance with the truth.

    But, yes. There is only so much time. Oba­ma is attempt­ing to push as much as he can through con­gress as fast as pos­si­ble. He must strike while the iron is hot. It is only a mat­ter of time before he begins to lose his polit­i­cal sup­port. And there’s no telling what might hap­pen tomor­row (or the next day) that might pre­vent him from get­ting any­thing else done.

    :) Just like the ques­tion of whether I can play gui­tar and sing, it depends upon who you ask. But thanks!
