The Republicans need to get their heads out of their asses.
[*]Become lukewarmly in support of sex ed and gay rights. Because the Republicans lost those wars, they were on the wrong side, and it's time to move on already.
[*]Get back to what really matters; making it easier for small businesses to form, if for no other reason than Mom & Pop Shops historically having been overwhelming Republican. Get rid of the abuses of big businesses and the ultra-rich; sure they may be your biggest donors but seriously, they might as well all be Democrats because they are forcing everyone into the Dem's arms.
[*]Stop pissing off the religious, conservative and strong family values Hispanics; their skin may be brown but their blood is red. For the love of god, stop trying to stick Jesus up everyone else's ass. Creationism is junk science, come down hard against it.
[*]Then go after the Democrats for their anti-scientific bullshit such as DSHEA and OCCAM and NCCAM and Anti-vaxxers and virtually all other alternatives to medicine, because that's the Democrats' biggest weakness right now.
[*]And seriously, global warming is a thing, stop pretending it's not it's just making you look like idiots at this point. Get behind wind, but if you must, require that the plastic in the turbines be made from corn or something to get the farmers to agree to it. And get behind nuclear, which has the fewest deaths per petawatt of any significant form of energy, even including Chernobyl. If it makes you happy, just put the navy in charge of all the nuclear plants or something.
You know, if there were a party like this the above that was also pro-choice, I'd probably vote for them (unless it came with some weird new baggage). I've been moderately Democrat because they don't seem as inclined to force a narrow moral code on the whole country, but I also really like Michigan's Republican governor. Like, if it doesn't impact other people, you should probably be allowed to live how you like.
