That Which Doesn’t Destroy Us Makes Us stronger

The Republican Party is worried about losing elections to Tea Party supporters as they continue to move to the right. What they fail to realize is that they lost the last election because intelligent, educated, informed Republicans voted for Democrats.

Perhaps Republicans should review their party’s history. The Republican Party came into existence when the Whigs were infiltrated by the “American Party” also know as the “Know Nothing” party. Rather than accept the unenlightened views of this party, the more moderate, less extreme members of the Whig Party started a new party and called it the Republican Party.

Guess what happened to the the Whig party and its extremist members who called themselves the American Party?
