But they know that they will never betray the part of their base that owns the companies that hire illegal immigrants, so they wont try to stop illegal immigration. tRump can spout all he wants, it will never get done.

But the base would never believe it when they are told that.
Bingo.

Interesting you would mention farmers, what with the 16 billion and counting in socialist farmer bailouts delivered by ya boy that were only needed because of idiotic shortsighted economic policies, also delivered by ya boy. In the future you may want to use a different example for your shilling.

Are the Senators from Wyoming, Montana, North and South Dakota, Alaska, ... in there "fighting for the farmers?"

Hardly.

Amazing how much of these farmers used illegals for the fields, then voted for republicans that lied about supporting them.
Did they want the illegal labor to be cut off?
Are they screaming "Build a wall"?
I wonder what percentage of them dont even realize that they keep voting against their own interests.

They seriously got their heads peed on and was told it was raining.

I think they want them for free. Forced labor.


Farmers are living off taxpayers In stead of fighting the corrupt Republican Party of Un American Activities.
Shame on them.

Future voting patterns are unknown. Until 1960s the South was Democrat dominated. Whig party doesn't even exist.

GOP could moderate and gain voters. Democrats could split while GOP maintains solid though slowly shrinking voter pool. More political parties could form. GOP near total irrelevance is one of many possibilities.

First, let me address this nonsense about Republicans operating on fear mongering, phony patriotism, and racism. Pure projection coming from a group of ideologues who haven’t produced a single positive outcome in three plus decades, while endlessly barking the same fear based nonsense .... be afraid black people ... be afraid Hispanic people ... be afraid gay people ... be afraid women ... the Republicans are out to get you! America .... listen up .... Donald Trump is a Russian agent!! Woooo ... be afraid ..... he’s a dictator ... he’s a racist .... he’s running concentration camps on the border .... he’s a modern day Hitler ..... but, this man is tireless because in his spare time, when he’s not persecuting everyone, he is secretly conspiring to destroy the earth because he refuses to destroy our economy to save the earth ..... day after day, 24/7, this is the the only thing we hear out of the left. At this point, it’s beyond comedy, and entering the realm of abject insanity.

So, what happens when you reach this level of insanity? You have unhinged lunatics hijack the party, and watch them destroy whatever headway may have been achieved via the aforementioned fear mongering. Now you have the Democrat leadership in fear of what will be next to come out of the mouths of such lunatics like AOC, Omar, and their ilk. Pelosi and Schumer can no longer focus entirely on attacking Trump, as they try to figure out how best to put a straight jacket and a muzzle on these radical loons capturing the daily headlines with their anti-American, anti-Semitic rhetoric that has now become the gift that keeps on giving to the Republican Party. The inmates have now taken over the asylum, and even long time moderate democrats are recognizing the disaster unfolding. Forget capturing the swing vote, and the independent voters .... they’re gone. It’s no wonder why we see this total comedy of a democrat debate, with bus loads of candidates all trying to one up each other in the race to the bottom, doubling down on a strategy that failed in 2016.

Republican Party dying? Haha haha ..... sorry to burst your bubble .... but hijabs, illegals, Russia Collusion, and radical anti-American rhetoric is not going to save you .... the democrat party has committed suicide right before your eyes .... you all are just to blind to read the death certificate.
Do you feel better after that little rant? Good, but it didn’t change a damned thing.

Maybe things aren’t changing in rural Cow Patty, Texas, but even Texas is becoming less Republican by the day, led by it's changing Demographics and young college graduates attracted from other states and bringing their blue state politics with them. Look at the kids getting off the school buses in Tejas. They represent your future.

Hate to burst your bubble, but Gen Z are not the liberals that article wrongly claims they are. According to the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, a majority of Gen Z identified as Republican in 2016. 46% of first time voters said they would vote for Donald Trump, vs only 30% for Clinton. Overall, Gen Z leans 34% Trump, 20% Clinton.
https://hispanicheritage.org/50000-g...fy-republican/

52% of Gen Z prefer nationalism to globalism. https://marketresearchfoundation.org...-conservative/

Those "major changes" that are coming are likely going to make this country more conservative. Sounds good!
