  •  The Southern Strategy is yesterday's news (6+ / 0-)

    The GOP doesn't need to be a national majority party to accomplish its goals. The extremists are capturing state houses across the country to push their extremist ideas. It's a good strategy given changing national demographics and the fact that most voters do not pay as close attention to state politics. Additionally, it will be easy for corporate lobbyists to peel away enough Democrats in Congress to ensure progressive ideas never take root at the national level. The Southern Strategy served the GOP well but times have changed and they are already one step ahead.
