The last presidential election was disaster after disaster for the GOP, and it's very obvious why. Here are some things that the GOP needs to do if they want any hope of winning another election any time soon. Stop being racist, try to reach hispanics Changing voting laws at the last minute in an obvious attempt to stop legal immigrants from voting should not happen. Mexican immigrants in particular are socially conservative christians. They even blocked a gay rights bill in CA for a while before the courts overturned it. They should be your base, however they are not going to vote for a party that continually tells people that they are the problem. Hispanics will be a majority in this country very shortly. Get rid of elitism The people in the exit polls in both parties thought that rich people should pay a fairer share. Because of the internet, people know that some of the most profitable companies in the country like BoA, GM, Goldman Sachs, not only don't pay taxes, but get money back. Reverse your views on women Both of the anti-rape senate candidates lost, by landslides. Women outnumbered men in the voting booths, you have to embrace them. Stop bitching about the electoral college It's actually what helps keeps the GOP relevant. Red states turnout is higher than blue states turnout, because we know that our votes don't really matter. My state is about 75% blue, I didn't have to vote, but if the election was won by popular vote, I would have to vote because it would matter. Liberals outnumber conservatives by a very wide margin, if we all thought our votes mattered, we would be a much more progressive country. Reverse your views on science The young people are the future voters, and they are interacting with other people all over the world in real time on the web. They don't want to be labeled as stupid americans who don't even believe in evolution or climate change. Reverse your views on gays Same reason, young people don't want to be associated with what people overseas sees as a hate group. Use facts, not bullshit The party used to be able to run on ignorance, but with the internet, people are more informed than you think. Michelle Bachman said in a debate "where in the constitution does it say that we are not a christian nation?" She knew that it was spelled out clear as day in the first sentence of the Bill of Rights, but she had bet on the fact that her base didn't know that. Stop saying socialism People are looking up what socialism actually means. The Cold War is over, you can't equate socialism with the USSR anymore, now that people actually know what went on there, its quite obvious that the USSR was as far as you could get from actual socialism. Stop acting like you care and actually care The picture of Paul Ryan cleaning dishes in a soup kitchen would have worked ten years ago, but it doesn't work now. It took less than an hour for most of the country knew that all he actually did was show up, take the photo, and leave. Twitter and Facebook are your enemy if you act like that.
