    Tell me all about it in thirty years, after the GOP is reduced to a minor, regional party with no national power by the massive demographic change that's coming at it like a tidal wave right now.




    The clock is ticking.

    No one can stop time and/or change.

    I think you did a fine job expressing yer views. I'm a fairly partisan Democrat, but I occasionally vote for Republicans. I agree with what you've said about primaries. It's a complicated issue, but in the end I think the system needs to discourage people from voting "insincerely."

    Whether or not it is warranted, everything Cantor was championing will now be viewed as election poison for the GOP candidates.
    A truly partisan Democrat would welcome a hard line by Republicans against immigration reform. It's strongly supported nationally and that support is likely to increase. If the GOP can be identified with strict opposition to immigration reform, Democratic candidates will benefit.

    No matter how many times you post your claim, the credibility of the statement will never improve. US History, does not support your claim. US history does support the rejection and defense against foreign invasion.

    Since history is the only credible source here, then those who are encouraging this invasion will be removed from power, and those who are a part of it, will be dealt with. That is the only credible truth. The rest is just so much hot air.

    In addition, losers of primaries are not eligible for ballot recognition. Write in is possible, but not likely.

    Besides, he lost by 10+%. Add to that those democrats who would not vote for Cantor, and there is no chance.



    I haven't done a lot of research on this race, but from what I know right now, my guess is that Cantor is a goner.

    His departure certainly wouldn't help Boehner.

    That's just your opinion.

    We'll see in thirty years (Well, maybe we won't see, but somebody will see.)

    Of course. Based on historic fact. Yours?

    MSNBC Has it all figured out... It's the red-neck, jew hating conservative crackers of the republican party:



    The desperation and dishonesty of the liberals in the media has turned into a serious mental health issue.

    Based on U.S. Census Bureau numbers and current demographic trends.

    And a rather massive assumption based on agenda and bias. I'm thinking that's a poor basis for pointing 30 years down the road.

    As I wrote, the history of the US is to reject and repel foreign invasion. I appreciate the history where you live does not share this past, so it is likely clouding how things are actually viewed here.

    States writing their own rules for who votes in the primary is the very essence of the 10th amendment, so a DEM would oppose that.
    It is even more egregious when it involves Federal candidates from one region affecting those of another.

    This Roberts Court has sided with these types of voter manipulations as per its VRA ruling.
    Dems do a better job of this cross-over game here in Illinois.

    A truly partisan Democrat would welcome a hard line by Republicans against immigration reform.
    People think this guy is elected.
    Wait until he speaks and removes all doubt about immigration and other "Akin" beliefs.
    It's strongly supported nationally and that support is likely to increase.
    If the GOP can be identified with strict opposition to immigration reform, Democratic candidates will benefit.
    Koch bros, Priebus, establishment RINOs--everyone in politics is rocked by this upset and spinning away.
    I tried FOX for a moment but had to flip right away--they're wall-to-wall Bergdahl, so to speak .
    Physics is Phun
