#1 The death is not a sudden thing, it's been going on for some time. I stopped sending the state GOP and national GOP panhandlers money years ago. I support specific candidates, and they can lose that support with a single bad choice. Ask Pat Toomey. Signed up for Manchin's gun grab and I tagged Toomey's fundraising emails as junk and toss his snail mailings directly in the no-sort recycle bin before I even come in from getting the mail.

#2 A salient point:

The Democratic Party thrived under FDR, but it shriveled under Obama... There are many reasons for this, but one is particularly relevant. Obama lost the traditional heart of the Democratic Party: the white working class. In fairness, the Democrats’ trouble with blue-collar whites pre-dates Obama, but Obama accelerated the process. In 2012, he lost this group by 26 points (62%-36%). Trump is winning with those votes.

#3 At least with FDR people had jobs.

#4 Makes some sense, because he is in deep with Democrats as it is. And now Trump has his Soros tentacle embedded.

#5 Both parties are effectively dead. The people are tired of their criminal behavior. The real question is if what's left of the republican party will go quietly in reform, or not...

#6 Tribalism has been rewarded in our politics for decades now under the rubric of "multiculturism" and " diversity" -- it's regrettable but hardly shocking that more and more whites have decided to get in on the action.

This the world the lefties made; people are just trying survive in it.

And before you can fight for lofty principles and sound policy, you have to make sure you're actually around for the fight.

#7 I remember Morsi.
A 'popular' vote pushed out because he wouldn't play nice.
I'm beginning to smell a replay of the standard pattern but with the world at stake, not just our country.
