In response to UserName99's comment:
Some people change with the times; They are known as Democrats.
Other people stay fixed in time usually to an imagined halcyon era situated 50 years back through a time tunnel; they are known as Republicans.
The first group naturally thrives with changing demographics; the latter group is utterly threatened and swept away by these changes.
To remain relevant, Republicans need to embrace change and join us in the 21st century.
Conservatism is not the status quo....progressivism is the status quo. Since the Democratic racist Woodrow Wilson expanded the government and trampled on the Constitution a century ago, the liberal mentailty has not really changed.
Ronald Reagan, 1992: "Fellow Republicans, we are the change!"
It is today's liberals who refuse to change and progress, they want to keep their dinosaur failed social programs, and fat public sector pensions, and expand the Nanny State..the realities of change and progress, new technologies and efficiencies come from the private sector.
The statists of the Left stick to the past..Education reform? Not allowed? Efficient government? Not allowed.
A progressive brain dead view of history as marching endlessly left, further and further left...
Government expanding and freedom dying...
