A good look at America’s two big parties right now
Republicans have a couple of options, The most obvious ones are:
  • A retreat to social conservatism combined with economic populism. This would take advantage of the current rush to blame free markets for the financial mess that politicians actually wrought...
  • A return to an emphasis on free markets and small government while repudiating the nativism and intolerance that have marked the GOP in recent years.
Obviously Tuccille and I are for the second.
The Democratic Party faces challenges too, though its problems may come from its success.
Guess what, SWPL? Blacks and Hispanics, like the older ethnics you once drove away (the Reagan Democrats), don’t agree with you on social issues.
