6. Leave the GOP? Really? Is that a threat or a promise?

"Much of the conservatives' letter to Priebus stresses the issue of gay rights, and challenges the logic of the Growth and Opportunity Project's advice to broaden the party's appeal. Holding the line against same-sex marriage, the letter argues, would allow Republicans to make better inroads, for instance, into more traditionally-minded corners of the African American community."

Dudes! How are you going to make inroads among more conservative African-Americans when you keep trying to stop them from voting?

My fantasy would be for real progressives and populists to take over the GOP so this country would actually have a two party system again.
