Onion News: "GOP Trying To Keep Elderly Voting Base Alive Until November": What Won't The GOP Do To Win

Within the next ten years or so America will be a much younger, more diverse, ethnically and racially country that will be more Liberal-Libertarian more tolerant. As well with Generations X and Y and will be a country that will want less government in our lives, we are moving to becoming that country that Barry Goldwater. Wanted a Big Government out of our wallets and bedrooms country, which plays very well for Democrats, assuming the Progressives don't take over the party. Because Democrats play very well with Ethnic and Racial Minorities and have welcomed them into the party and support things like Comprehensive Immigration Reform. They have become the Civil Rights Party, which is what the Republican Party use to be and Republicans know this. And as the country is moving left, the GOP is moving right and becoming a more Authoritarian and Fascist Party. That has their own idea of what it means to be an American and what America is and if you don't fit into this box exactly. You don't speak the language a certain way or practice religion a certain way, don't like their forms of entertainment or like other forms of entertainment instead. Don't have the traditional family and so fourth, you are somehow Un American. And the GOP is not ready to move politically to accommodate new voters, they want to stick with their traditional base.

Instead of realizing this new reality and trying to adjust to it and use it as an opportunity, of how can we become a bigger party and bring in new voters. Neoconservative Republicans who now run the GOP, have gone in the opposite direction and looked for ways to make themselves smaller. But use that to not only remain competitive but to continue to win elections and have already written off these new voters as people who aren't going to vote Republican. And have decided, that if they aren't going to vote Republican, they aren't going to vote at all. Thats exactly what Voter ID is all about, the more accurate way to describe Voter ID, is to call it the Democratic Voter Prevention Act. How do we prevent African and Latin American voters, a well as young people from voting at all, because if these voters turnout and vote. They will almost certainly vote Democratic and costs Neoconservatives seats in Congress and other elections.

So sure if we can prevent seniors in places like Florida as well as minorities who tend to be Democratic from voting. What's the next logical step, I know keep seniors who tend to be Republican from dying, so we can keep these votes alive so to speak, while we are preventing others from voting at all. I guess if you are desperate enough, you'll do anything to win, even save lives to save votes and prevent others from voting to save votes against.
