When Will The GOP Start Courting American Voters?

Occasionally, I'll conduct a thought experiment. I'll think to myself, "Self, what would America look like if we had representatives in Washington who represented our interests?" And by "our," I mean the many who feel disenfranchised and ignored by the current state of politics.

We'd have the Constitution as our foundation. We'd have a federal government that was small, inexpensive and unobtrusive. We'd have a robust economy with a diversity of opportunity for all. We'd have a flat tax of 10%. We'd have schools that taught real-world skills like reading, writing and arithmetic.

We'd have a strong military and strong national borders. We'd have unity, a common heritage and some respect for our history. We'd recognize our enemies as enemies and treat them as such.

Pretty much the exact opposite of what we have now.

I see where Jeb Bush is being propped up as the GOP presidential candidate for 2016, primarily to woo Hispanic voters.

If the GOP wants to win, they might consider courting Americans.

Naah, that would be redundant - and excessive.

The Establishment GOP knows --WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY!-- that its Conservative base will never, Never, NEVER vote for a Democrat.

So these Beltway Brainiacs are free-as-the-breeze to use the Democrat tactic of pandering to "targeted ethnic groups", using giveaways from Ye Olde Publick Treasurey with the understanding that the "under-served" will vote for whoever has bribed them with the most goodies, most recently.
