Too many “sects” within the GOP and they’re all “so out of touch”


Jindar, Rowe, and Hunstsman of the GOP

Republicans Bobby Jindar, Carl Rowe, and John Hunstman

You can deny it all you want, and with all your might – the fact remains that there is a civil war within the Republican Party. Many Republicans agree. To what would you attribute the GOP’s  intra-party wrangling? The answer: there are too many levels of conservatism coupled with a lot of strong-willed, dogmatic, hot-headed personalities within the party.

It’s nice for the party to have a bevy of stars – but when each star preaches a different brand of politics and draws their own loyal groups of followers they all end up dividing the party. Bobby Jindar called the GOP “the stupid party.” Carl Rowe has his own plan for the party – he wants to hand-pick the Republican Party candidates for the next senatorial elections. And John Huntsman is thinking to form a third party, saying that eventually someone would do so anyway.

It is this kind of division that will eventually sink the Grand Old Party’s boat. The GOP and its leadership urgently need to rethink their philosophy and line it up with that of the majority of Americans. They are “so out of touch,” so to speak.
