Before announcing last week that he is leaving the Republican Party to become an independent –pointing to “tolerance of bigotry” within the GOP in his parting blog post – LaSalvia was a veteran GOP operative and activist, known for co-founding the conservative gay rights group GOProud.

LaSalvia sat down with “Top Line” to discuss his dramatic departure and explained that he has “no hope for the Republican Party.”

I doubt the voters will get much smarter or dumber. Only a small percentage really studies things.

Life long pay is definitely something that should end. Half of congress are already millionaires.

Would be a start. But they will have to speak to their intolerance or at the least their indifference to intolerance within their party & figure out what they CAN do for the ever growing minority populations that soon will be the majority.... and women.... & GLBT community... & are they getting the picture?

Single party rule has it's rewards. I'm optimistic that the people will ask for something different before the entire USA goes the way of Detroit Michigan.

The entire USA has gone the way of Detroit. Just not as bad because the major cities had fall back industries to rely on. This NOT because of democrat or repubs entirely- but because of a total change in type of country wide economy.
Here is a good read.
"The good times would not last forever. As the nation's economy began to shift from the business of making things, that line of work met the force of foreign competition. Good-paying assembly line jobs dried up as factories that made the cars and supplied the steel closed their doors. The survivors of the decline, especially whites, fled the cities to pursue new dreams in the suburbs.

The "Arsenal of Democracy" that supplied the Allied victory of World War II and evolved into the "Motor City" fell into a six-decade downward spiral of job losses, shrinking population and a plummeting tax base. Detroit's singular reliance on an auto industry that stumbled badly and its long history of racial strife proved a disastrous combination, and ultimately too much to overcome.

"Detroit is an extreme case of problems that have afflicted every major old industrial city in the U.S.," said Thomas Sugrue, author of "The Origins of the Urban Crisis: Race and Inequality in Postwar Detroit" and a history professor at the University of Pennsylvania. "It's been 60-plus years of steady disinvestment, depopulation and an intensive hostility between the city, the suburbs and the rest of the state.""
