With any luck at all

With any luck at all, the Republican Party will be seriously transformed over the next four years.

The party needs to realize that America is rejecting social conservatism in a big way. While most Americans will respect your rights to your religious beliefs, we do not want them forced upon us, or legislated into our federal code. The most egregious of those were not even successful in the primary fight, and the more moderate got beat by the actions of others in the party (among other things).

I hope the party splits. The evangelical wing is killing the libertarian wing, and the libertarian wing can’t seem to focus on the issues of importance to most Americans (really. legalizing pot is the #1 issue?). It will be important to separate the viewpoints and see what America really wants. I’m pretty sure it isn’t socialism, but when the choices look worse, it doesn’t say much.
