This is copy of an email I just sent to a mail list of which I could well be the only progressive/liberal. The list is mostly ex-military.
For those of us that are older, which probably includes most on this list, this is not the same country that we grew up in during the 1940s and 50s. It has changed, quite a bit.
Like it or not, the reality is that after two victories by a person of color, the Republican party stands on the brink of being irrelevant.
With the state of Maryland voting 52% to 48% to recognize same sex marriage and Colorado and Washington State voting to allow marijuana use, change is the one constant.
There will be more to come, in the next few months regarding demographics, how can or will, the Repubs make themselves relevant as a national political party, what it will take and more.
