    I think the left is more common then the right.  https://www.people-press.org/2015/04/07/a-deep-dive-into-party-affiliation/.  How can the Right catch up and surpass the left?

    Honestly examine which aspects of their platform planks are internally inconsistent.  

    Gays vote.

    So do people that get abortions.

    Probably should make good faith attempts to appeal to minorities in honestly looking for racial inequality regarding law enforcement.


    Re-focus party ideals to things that are actually people, rather than people on paper.  

    Just spit ballin' though.

    Well, it always helps to have 80℅ of the media and 90℅ of celebrities and academia stumping for your side in grand unison/collusion without actual regard for the facts.

    Left and Right are Yin and Yang.

    Imbalance results in chaos.

    Left is more common and for the right to catch up it would actually want to help people not allow Trump to cut social security, carry on wars and socially be bad. This can be seen with the taking of the knee fiasco, transgender ban, Muslim ban and his coverage of the unite the right rally in Charlottesville to name a few. 

    So basically the right would actually have to be progressives. Not the case because conservatism is what I consider a contradiction to progression which a progressive wants.

    My advice for the Republican party.

    Help people out of the major cities, and move the Republicans candidates in.

    Go nuts on your education, and infiltrate the ranks you are bitching about.

    Vote in favor of the dreamers over and over again. Oppose Trump head on for this issue with fury. If he whines, more power to you. No reforms, just own the daca issue.

    Pass immigration reform, separately, before the next election cycle.

    Pass severe penalties for crimes involving a gun that stand out from democratic strongholds, and pass a positive system for your state, and oppose the gun ban freaks. Promote training/safety. Make up a counter narrative to the stupid "assault weapon" nonsense and give something a legal designation that requires an assembly at least once per year. Promote the civilian marksmanship program at the federal level. Refine the background check system, propose an aid to intervention etc... Make it really loud.

    Also, make a Republican amendment to the civil rights act. Write your representatives, repeatedly. Write a real letter to your grandma too.

    Republicans fixing the 70% fatherless issue would also destroy Democrat strangleholds on urban centers.

    That doesn't say "Trump for Gays".  Trump is representative of a political party, gays are not.  "Recognizing" something doesn't mean you don't have intent to dismantle it.

    Also continuing prison reform and expanding job opportunities for convicted felons can do alot to assist minorities ready to flee the socialist plantation.

    Both parties appear to have inconsistencies.


    Gays are becoming more conservative because of the left stance on Islam, at least I hope that.  Abortion rates are falling, so abortion is becoming less of a threat.  The left is unwilling to compromise on abortion, even though most claim they are willing to compromise in general.

    Probably should make good faith attempts to appeal to minorities in honestly looking for racial inequality regarding law enforcement.
    What are your thoughts on black people who complain about white privilege going through cheap, safe, effective gene therapy so they can get the white privilege they believe exists?

    This is objectively BS as it's far more profitable to identify as a protected class today in America.

    The last I asked you this you didn't have actual proof so I will ask you again. Evidence the left "stance on Islam"?

    Evidence Gays are becoming more conservative?
    Abortion rates are falling, so abortion is becoming less of a threat.  The left is unwilling to compromise on abortion, even though most claim they are willing to compromise in general.
    Evidence of abortion rates falling?
    Evidence of "The left" "unwilling to compromise on abortion"?

    Left and Right used to be extremes with a solid middle ground of those willing to work together. Hate for the other side has changed that. Only a war where we either have to work together or die will fix it. Or a civil war.

    It's patently obvious that conservitards are much more common than the sophisticated and erudite left, but we tolerate them....................just.

    Private and state and federal prisons are just the continuation of slavery in America. But conservitards have always supported slavery.

    If you want evidence to back up my claims, you can fact check them to see if I am right.  For example, if you don't know if the abortion rates are falling, you can look up abortion rates.

    The existence or not of what privilege isn't what I was referring to.

    Its been noted time and time again that certain minorities when found guilty get sentenced less severely, as well as profiled.  Rather than force minorities into something, how about the enforcement majority NOT do something.  That seems to be the easier solution.


    :The left is unwilling to compromise on abortion, even though most claim they are willing to compromise in general:  

    Because denying abortion for the various reasons stated is internally inconsistent.  The only real reason is "to control women", but no one seems to want to actually say that.
