The Republican Party is dying for two reasons …

Reason No. 1: At a time when America desperately needs elected officials taking concrete steps to shrink government’s size and scope, the vast majority of “Republicans” are joining Democrats in kicking the can down the road (and raising taxes while they do it). There’s simply no pro-free market, pro-liberty party anymore.

Reason No. 2: At a time when most Americans are recognizing the inherent evil of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation (which is every bit as bad as discrimination based on gender, race or religion), many “Republicans” are clinging to outdated biases against gays, lesbians and bisexuals.

Consider the case of U.S. Rep. Randy Forbes – who according to Politico is leading an effort have the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) block funding for gay candidates

Yeah … and after you consider that, consider the silence (or muted criticism) of many GOP lawmakers in response to Forbes’ actions.

Seriously … we’re not even going to bother to call the South Carolina GOP congressional delegation because half of them probably support Forbes and the other half are probably too scared to stand up against him.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, but there is no gay way to cut taxes … just as there is no black way to raise them. There is no Christian way to cut spending, nor is there a male way to expand it.

Candidates are either supportive of the free market and individual liberties or they are supportive of the increasingly rabid federal government that’s eroding both of these societal pillars.

In other words we’ll take a pole-smoking Satanist who protects our wallets and pocketbooks (and our religious freedoms) over a devout Christian looking to continue America’s failed crony capitalist/ dependency economy any day.

God, gays and guns…the platform hasn’t changed in the last 30 years.

(oh and tax cuts for really wealthy people)

The outdated biases go far beyond just homosexuals, but against women, blacks, and Hispanics. Look no further than Rush Limbaugh’s tirade on Sandra Fluke, the GOP praise of Rosa Parks for “ending” racism, or Scott Walker’s most recently fired aide ranting on Twitter about Hispanic people that just have to be here illegally (or hell, the one he fired four months ago for the exact same thing).

But hey, don’t take my word for it. There’s a reason why Fox News is a big hit with old white people and not so much with other age/race groups.

Shut ur ass up, you effeminate negro that loves hispanic poon.

I hate everything about you.

A lot of those FOX news watchers don’t yet know that Shep Smith is gay.

That dude scares me. He looks like an evil ventriloquist’s dummy.

Which is oddly appropriate, now that I ponder it.

So you want a Gay Republican free market Libertarian candidate? Sounds about as likely as a sasquatch.

Thomas December 5, 2013 at 10:49 am

How can you tell a candidate is a homosexual? Oh that’s right, they are very thin men with anal prolapse. Really, why any man would stick inanimate objects in their anus or allow another man to copulate his anus to the point having anal prolapse, or shit their pants because they have no sphincter muscle control, is beyond all known human decency and natural laws.

Like you’ve never asked your wife or girlfriend if you could go in through the back door.

Thomas December 5, 2013 at 2:45 pm

This response and future responses to American homosexuality is much deserved. Psychiatric medicine is a farce to have diminished the severity, to embrace the disordered homosexual proclivities when psychoanalysis, alone, shows discomfort and trepidation in those who have experimented with same sex partners.

It was the weight of a terror campaign, much akin to what was displayed openly by those that identify as being homosexual when California passed Proposition 8, that persuaded several doctors of psychiatry to vote 5-4 homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Further threats of violence and desecration of church;s further advanced their agenda to remove ego-dystonic homosexuality from the DSM-III. Recently, to further provide an acceptance of the disorder of homosexuality, sex addictions were removed from the DSM IV ignoring decades of clinical research showing a link to this and other sexual disorders as from external trauma implying an inborn supposition. Bovine sewage.

The homosexual agenda is based entirely on throwing out sound science, ignoring twelve thousand years of recorded human history, and Natural Law. The terror campaign towards anyone with this sound POV coupled the incremental political implementation of contrary science and laws has produced the needless and aprioric divisions within the human race.

Of course the GOP doesn’t want gay candidates — THEY’RE REPUBLICANS! They don’t want anybody who isn’t like them. They fear blacks, hate Hispanics (except Cubans), denigrate women, despise gays, don’t like the educated and have nothing but contempt for the poor. That’s why their base of crotchety old white men, foolish women who listen to crotchety white men, southern frat boys, gun-toting goobers and right-wing Protestant religious zealots is endangered. Demographic change is inexorable. Adapt or die!

Too late.

I find it immensely amusing that SC. That bastion of Conservative stalwarts. Has elected to the US Senate, not one, but two closet Gay people. I love the Irony of that happening in our State. The home of freedom & hypocrisy.

euwe max December 5, 2013 at 1:34 pm

gay people are a big obstacle for “log cabin Republicans”

They don’t get into the spirit of war for profit like they should… they have reservations about black helicopters and ever more powerful electronic cow prods and chemical bombs for crowd control… and they are a liability at gun display demonstrations and other manly Republican dick-displays – they leer too much… they show up wearing pink camo.. they giggle when the marines stand strak… it breaks up the homogeneity, if you know what I mean….

Most REAL men are embarrassed by a man with a lisp, calling for more guns, the destruction of the muzzie cabal – and horrified screams when a leg breaks on the football field.

It just ain’t gonna work out.

Pit December 5, 2013 at 1:47 pm

He meant OPENLY gay candidates. The party is full of closeted bone smokers.

The Republican party IS dying. Your Reason No. 2 partly explains it, but it is definitely not because of your Reason No. 1. You should have also considered other reasons, such as:
Republican leaders failing to denounce statements from other party leaders that claim that a pregnancy resulting from rape is god’s will or that women’s bodies have the ability to avoid getting pregnant from rape.
Republican leaders claiming that people who do not vote for Republicans are lazy and only want free stuff.
Republican ideas that the best way to balance the budget is to cut food stamps to poor families rather than restore prior a higher income tax rate on millionaires.
