The current rout of the GOP after the banking and mortgage failure is do to a failed political philosophy and greed.
The obvious process and structure that Democrats and Republicans fail to recognize is that there is a 22 year old Chemical Assault – Scorched Earth that is in continuo.
The Republicans are more to blame at the present but this is changing daily.
A party platform based simply on lower taxes and smaller government is stale. On principles, the GOP has already moved away from morality towards economics which benefits such demographically but is a shift from principle to counting votes.
The GOP needs to be creative in the GREEN or Environmental area. There is moral ground as well as economic opportunity here. The 60 year and older club may have their pockets lined by older industry but the future is in sustainable resources. The GOP needs to analyze the political topography based more on reality than their static pitchmen and their monied interests.
Homeland Security and anti-corruption are two other areas that are neglected to the so-called fiscal conservative posture that lead the nation into a tulip bulb bubble which burst because the GOP could not practice their own political philosophy.
The future is going to DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY for the damage done.
Overall it is the culture that creates the mode of it’s own elimination.
