So, after playing here in the fight club sandbox for two years. Let me tell you why the GOP cannot, and will not, win a general election. Based on the views of posters here. Blacks: They all vote democrat. And no wonder. Blacks are all welfare queens and criminals in the eyes of much of the GOP, and you Neocons in libertarian drag. Next Bloc: White women. To quote one poster, women vote socialism. Yep, that's how you convince a voting block to vote for your platform Next bloc: Hispanics. Mittens said he would veto the "dream act". Nuff said. Next bloc: Gays....never in play. Next bloc: White men. The GOP has quite successfully defined "man" as a Dodge Ram driving, deer hunting, factory working male who must be a member of the NRA. Well, this right here gentlemen is why when this election is over you will have once again won vast swaths of land in the South and the Mountain West, where nobody lives, but lost the election itself. You guys have gotten away from Reagan's big tent and gone back to your Southern Strategy roots. And this is why the mainline GOP is insisting that Romney is the GOP nominee, in the hopes that the party will regain it's senses. But, alas, the general population now knows that the GOP base ( the real GOP) does not want Romney, and they know why.
