explains the problem for the Republicans and facts:
What was Mr. Rubio’s complaint about science teaching? That it might undermine children’s faith in what their parents told them to believe. And right there you have the modern G.O.P.’s attitude, not just toward biology, but toward everything: If evidence seems to contradict faith, suppress the evidence.
And there you have it.
THAT is essentially the difference that separates the two political parties in this country, AND it is what will ultimately doom the GOP, at least in its current incarnation, in the long run.
They are the party of faith, not logic. The party of religion, not science. And, even more sharply, the party of lies, versus the party of truth.
The problem for the Republican party is that the Millenials, are information addicts, and they are hooked up to numerous electronic gadgets that provide the ability to fact check statements made in real time, and THAT puts those used to bullshitting their way into power in a very untenable situation.
The future indeed looks grim for a party that is historically resistant to change, and very bright indeed for the party that embraces it.
