As an outside observer, I consider it obvious that the only way for the Republican party to survive, over the long term, is to moderate their policies and to govern for all Americans, not just the 1%. It appears evident that they are not willing to do so, given the the stance of Fox, aka Faux Noise, the Republican Ministry of Propaganda.
If you don’t believe that Fox Newsies would love nothing better than to go back to the feudal system where those with money and property rule the rest of us, check out guest John Tamny’s remarks on Fox & Friends this morning where he pointedly said our country is “blessed by the efforts of the relatively few. (The) one percent.” Implicit in the sentiment is that the rest of us are just schlubs who should kowtow to their greatness – and give them more money.
Despite the fact that the election could be seen as a referendum on Americans’ support for the middle class, Fox has spent the days since then waging class warfare in an effort to paint Obama voters as welfare queens just looking for more stuff.
Meanwhile, they applaud those one percenters who want more stuff in the way of tax cuts. There’s no way that Fox & Friends didn’t know that was the kind of cheerleading they’d get when they booked John Tamny on the show this morning. This is the same guy who said just a few months ago on Fox that police and firefighters should be thanking us for their cushy livelihoods at our expense…

Unless the Republican Party opts to change in fairly short order, I see no alternative to American voters sending them to follow the way of the Whig Party into oblivion.
