The Republicans' Trap


The Republican Party doesn't have a minority problem. It has an ideology problem: the combination of a fierce anti-government economic libertarianism (which serves to transfer wealth upwards to the richest) and a right-wing Christian legalism (which serves to attack gay rights and abortion rights). I would be surprised if it changed very much.
