    That's fine. You are free to live in your fantasy land. Have fun!!!

    The fact is that it is well documented. And anyone that has taken the time to look in the matter would agree. I have given sources to back this claim up. You don't find it comfortable to believe the truth here. There is an old saying in this regard, you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink.

    Democrats are not taking money from white people and giving it to black people. That's the distortion.

    OK. I have conceded that. Have I made you that angry that you feel the need to repeat it?

    Is the Republican Party in danger of dying out? I don’t think so. The Republican obituary was written after WWII when the Democrats had won 5 straight presidential elections and obtained such huge advantages in congress as 333-89 in the House and 75-17 in the senate. Yet the Republicans rebounded with Eisenhower’s win in 1952 and actually won both the house and the senate in that election, but they lost them both in the 1954 election.

    Then there was Watergate and Nixon’s resignation. Once again the pundits and book writers were spelling the doom of the Republicans. The Democrats won 292 house seats vs. 143 for the GOP, in the senate the Democrats held a 62-38 margin. Carter won the presidency in 1976. But once again the Republicans rebounded with Reagan in 1980 and won back the senate that year.

    By 1986 the pundits and political book writers were writing about the Republican electoral lock on the presidency as they couldn’t see how a Democrat could win that national office for the next 20 years. It didn’t take that long, Clinton won in 1992.

    So spelling out the demise of one party or the other is nothing new. One also should remember that since the start of the great depression the Democratic Party has always have a lot more people identify with it than the Republicans. At times that advantage was almost 2-1 with the Democrats having 50% or higher of the electorate associating themselves with the Democrats. Yet the Republicans are still with us and they just might be able to win control of the senate this year. It is a little early to be printing their demise or obituary.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I agree, they are far from dead. In my opinion, if they did the three things I mentioned, I think their prospects are rather good.
