Moderate Republicans are extinct

I've written that there are no more moderates in the Republican Party. Meghan McCain, the daughter of former Republican presidential candidate also confirms this. McCain declares herself to be a moderate Republican. She supports gay marriage for instance. She appeared on Rev. Al Sharpton's Politics Nation on MSNBC. Here are a couple of comments from her interview.

"I'm a proud moderate Republican, but using the word 'moderate' in the Republican party today is considered a dirty word," .... Many people in the Republican party treat me like I'm a freak, like there's something wrong with me and that I'm a mutant from the original design. ... If you're not an extreme right-wing conservative... you're given no respect."

By the way, McCain also says the same thing is happening in the Democratic Party. Not true. She talks about former president Bill Clinton. Good example. Clinton was a moderate in the Democratic Party and that moderate movement nominated him in 1992. There are still moderates in the Democratic Party. But add McCain's voice to those of former senators Chuck Hagel, and Richard Lugar. They all bemoan the extinction of moderates in the Republican Party. It's time to face the facts The Republican Party is a party for right-wing conservatives. IF you are angry and have hatred in your heart for other people, the Republican Party is for you. Moderates, liberals, independents, minorities and women need not apply.

Here's the video from MSNBC.

If you're to the left of Alpha Centauri, you're too liberal for the GOP these days. Moderates started to go extinct when Reagan got elected and became their god. The irony is if you woke him up, he'd be drummed out of the party for being a bleeding heart liberal for the crime of raising taxes.
