2. Two questions beg to be asked...
First, will the Republican Party finally "get it" and start debating real issues and provide real alternatives?
and second, Do we really want them to?

4. They won't get it with that base.
We also have to understand that their party is essentially run by a very small faction of oligarchs and power brokers that have enlisted the ranks of the racists, ignorants, and just plain whackos to give them some voter depth.
Getting it is a tall order for this bunch.
To your second question: Unfortunately, these people will not be going away anytime soon. Fortunately, attrition should diminish whatever political clout they may have had.
