You snipped so little that you might as well have posted the whole damn thing. Unless the site has a paywall or something, just give us a teaser to wet our appetites and point us to the link. Anyone who must have this much of it spoon-fed to them isn't worth addressing in the first place.

re: #1 EiMitch

I have 5 paragraphs up. Usually I post 4. I did this last night so you got me before I finished editing. Your original post was correct if I had left it as is.

"In sum, I believe the problem is that the country as a whole -- party faithful aside -- doesn't buy current Republican ideology when they understand what it means for them, that they do understand it, and that the nation disagrees with it."

Color me a little more cynical. I think this statement is true for a large portion of the population, but for a large portion (who couldn't articulate the difference between Dems and Repubs if they tried), I think it simply comes down to the fact the D's have done much, much better at self-promotion and advertising (especially to the young) than the R's, even when all actual substance is pushed aside. The R's have simply become CLUELESS when it comes to being fundamentally personable, and it shows badly.

I agree. I think the GOP linked to talk show radio personalities and groupies - became - shock jock like - in their attitudes - I don't know how else to put it but the GOP behavior of the politicians and their base and the talk show talking heads seems to have been molded by the world of talk AM radio where the hosts yells at people they disagree with and they talk up doom like scenarios to their audience while selling them gold and survivalist supplies.

Is that how you see it also? The reason I ask is I am trying to figure out what the hell happened to the Republican party - how did it become so caustic and kooky. I think the link to talk show radio is one big reason.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
