  •  that's quite a hypothetical (0+ / 0-)
    Are you seriously arguing that if we had southern racists in our party still, that we wouldn't be considering chained CPI or free trade agreements?
    you've got there.  It also doesn't address the rightward shift of the party on socioeconomic issues.

      You responded with that to my point that southern racists have moved out of the party. It was a logical conclusion when you respond with "which is why we're considering x and y" for me to believe you meant a causal link between what I said and what you're introducing.

      It isn't a hypothetical of my creation, it is a hypothetical of your own creation.
