The republicans lost. Wah! Wah! Wah! There is no sympathy here. Now the political pundits are telling the republicans how they have to change in order to survive. Stop it! Don’t give them any help. Let them go the way of the Whigs. How I view the Republican Party is an organization of old, white men who sincerely believe that they know what is best for society. Moreover it is their God given right to rule America. Not to represent their constituents but to rule them. Many people say that we need the two party system. When was the last time you saw the democrats agree on anything? I say we’ll be just fine with the republicans as a minor party. As an old, white male I might vote for them again.
Paul Ryan became the closest Wisconsinite since Bob Lafollette to run for the top spots in America. I wish him well but I couldn’t vote for him. Our views are diametrically opposed. But I still have hope that he will eventually moderate his view and realize that he has to represent his constituents not his donors. It would be nice to have a Presidential Library in Janesville.
Congratulations on entering the Age of Aquarius and surviving Armageddon and living through the end of the Mayan calendar. I wish you Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year.
