We *want* to get back that bright and *progressive* GOP of Lincoln who emancipated slavery, fought for 99% and proudly represented the essence that “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”. Sadly, GOP is now a party of the 1%, financed by the 1% (lobbyist) ,works for the interests of the 1%” and hence most likely will dwindle from electoral landscape of many states , until some truly charismatic (not synthetic), main-street-friendly (not wall-street-friendly), commonsense oriented (not hardliner) LEADER comes out and guide GOP to regain the trust of 99%. Ironically, today’s GOP’s argument is like this : significant 1% creates job for insignificant 99% and helps feed those “useless” 99%. Hence those significant 1% must be pampered at all cost (even when a few of those 1% do not want any kind of protection/privilege , willing to pay their fair share and love to lead the humble lives of 99% ). GOP leaders want to protect those significant 1% at the expenses (Medicare, Social Security) of elderly who had already paid their dues well in advance and also at the expense of those less fortunate of us (from where a few geniuses have always come up, and made the world a better place, time and again). Sorry GOP leaders, your ideology is far from reality. Without 99% , those 1% who finance your elections, simply do not exist. Hence, in next election, it is most likely, GOP will be trounced badly. For that possible defeat of GOP, I would like to blame : Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Eric Cantor for their anti-people, anti-women, anti-commonsense, anti-progressive , failed and often confused leadership. Not allowing the President to do his job effectively, even when it is good for America, is far more important an agenda to the GOP leadership than helping the 99% who have suffered badly due to 2nd great depression caused by frequent misadventures of the previous GOP President.

Garbage article…”unpopular party”, if it’s so unpopular, why do peopel still vote for them, the House is still majoritively republican….remember. If anything they have to convince the rest of America to wake up and realize what is happening now will be the end of the U.S. as a great nation. The debt piling up, huge welfare programs and no end in sight is the death of any country.

All credit due to the Tea Party.
