Can the GOP keep on selling the same old platform?

What do they have expect? A crazy platform means crazy candidates and crazy supporters.

Jerry: I keep hearing about the changing demographics. i.e. old angry white men (the ones who keep voting against their own well-being because hatred and bigotry are their biggest priorities) will gradually be replaced by young, non-white, non-religious voters. I hope this change starts happening sooner (as in November 2016) instead of later.

I find it amazing that their hatred and bigotry is against people struggling even more than they are, rather than against the people who are taking both themselves and those they hate.

Jerry: Yes, this particular twist of human nature never ceases to amaze. Channel all of your hatred and frustration towards people who are poorer than you, rather than the corporate-owned politicians who keep enabling and reinforcing this predicament. I don't understand it myself, but political think tanks and strategists have perfected the art of exploiting this trait.
