7. Republicans are showing the desperation of a dying party.

Maybe not this election or the next, but surely after that. They will need a turnaround infusion of new blood (not age,but ideas).Remake or be gone. The old rich white guy desperation is totally unfit for our present age. The dishonesty they are showing in manipulating everything they can is unworthy of even the "big city boss" politics of a century or more ago. The political bosses then at least did improve the lots of their constituents. Those who vote against their own interests? They don't seem to feel simply that they'll be part of the one percent in future. Many seem to feel that the 1% truly are smarter and more deserving. I base this on political calling work that I do, and my own background in education. The attitude that younger people can be anything they want is naive of course, but many are at least calling bullshit of the worship of the uber wealthy. Some of them worked for and "built it," many others inherited the advantages. The "Occupy" movement seems to have faded, but preceded, ironically, the perfectly illustrating Republican candidate.
