Wake up and see the altering demographic

In Mr. Patton’s piece "Red states should be careful what they wish for" (March 22), his conservative critique of liberalism is as fact-free and unsupported as nearly all conservative points seem to be today.

It can only project its own dying movement’s negativity onto liberalism without presenting a single example. I actually laughed.

Mr. Patton writes:

"They (liberals) may live in Denver, but their ideology has spread like a cancer to every area of the state, mainly because liberals always think they know better how to run everyone else’s life, and they are more than happy to do so."

From what Martian cave is Mr. Patton writing? The reason the Republican Party, and the conservative movement in general, is slowly but surely dying into a necrotic minority of angry Caucasian mummies is that they’ve irreparably turned off and infringed upon the freedoms of a majority of the country’s altering demographic, either with divisive rhetoric or by consistently aligning themselves with policies that are intensely anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-young, anti-immigrant, anti-minority and pro-gun and pro-rich.

It must be profoundly embarrassing, and sadly telling, of Mr. Patton’s party’s vitality and national relevance in that the only politician they can lionize without wincing in shame is Ronald Reagan, who left office a quarter of a century ago (and would be politically to-the-left of what the Republican Party is today), and before him, Abraham Lincoln.
