Further to the right, once more?

Today’s link

The fall out from the election continues.  Today it is the turn of Gary Bauer to pontificate as to why the Republican party lost the election.  Part of the reason why he thinks that may have happened?  The party didn’t move far enough to the right on social issues it seems.

Clearly nothing has been learned.  I keep hearing on the radio about how the Republican party need to find ways to embrace Hispanic voters, black voters, etc.  That’s not the way.  The way is to change your thinking.  I have first hand experience of this in the UK through watching the Conservative party evolve over the last 20 years to become a party who are now accepting of LGBTQ people and their issues (largely).  That has allowed them to focus on other issues.  That is what needs to happen here.  Not a continued marginalization.

Big love,
