    Best thing that could possibly happen, but probably not in time to prevent a disaster at the polls next week. Great article, thanks for sharing!

    Republicans will NEVER win White House again. That's safe in Democrats hands. Republicans & Tea Party have been trying to turn USA into Christian version of Taliban.

    I would not be so sure of that because not all Millennials are "Godless" and pro urban living. There is still a significant percentage of Millennials especially from the South that still are conservative and are quite religious. Most millennials from small towns and rural areas also tend to be more conservative. As for republicans never winning the White House, that all depends on who the democratic party picks to run in 2016. If they make the horrendous mistake of picking the hapless Hillary ho for candidate, you can almost be assured that the GOP is going to find a candidate that appeals to the broad spectrum of Americans and not just the NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS. The White House is definitely not in safe democratic hands, that is wishful thinking on your part.

    The GOP is not going to have any viable choice but to change and it will change as millennials who embrace the republican values gain control and start expelling all the NARROW MINDED BIBLE THUMPING SCREWBALLS and the xenophobic tea party from GOP ranks. Millennials who support the GOP want all the religion removed from its planks and the party returned to its original roots. This country can't afford to become a one political party nation-state under the democrats. We need viable competition in our political process. If you want to see what would happen to the US under an all democratic party control, just look at what happened to most older, northern cities that have been under the boot of democratic control for 50 to 60 years. They all declined and deteriorated into a sewer thanks to the corrupt, incompetent democratic party. Cities like St Louis, Milwaukee, Detroit, Toledo, Cleveland, Buffalo, Rochester, Newark, and Baltimore have been destroyed by long time democratic monopoly rule in city hall. I don't want the rest of America to end up like these above mentioned northern cities and that is exactly what will happen if the democratic party becomes the powerful, unchallenged party.

    Hillary Clinton has been praised for, eventually, tweeting a condemnation of Boko Haram’s kidnappings, but she hasn’t had anything to say about the Sultan of Brunei’s plans to stone gay men to death.

    And that’s not too surprising.

    Hillary, like Obama, has been to Brunei and set up relationships with the Islamic tyranny. Bill Clinton and Chelsea visited Brunei last year. The Beverly Hills hotel being boycotted by Hollywood over its ownership by the Sultan of Brunei hired a Clinton aide as a crisis manager.

    The Clinton Foundation, which has played a key role in helping position Hillary for her 2016 race, received between $1 and $5 million from Brunei.

    So it’s not surprising that Hillary, despite flirting with gay rights, has nothing to say about Brunei, even as her Hollywood donors are vowing to boycott businesses linked to the Muslim country.

    It’s not just about Brunei. The Clinton Foundation received even bigger amounts of money from Saudi Arabia. If Hillary Clinton isn’t prepared to criticize the Sultan of Brunei for being prepared to stone gay men to death, will she stand up for human rights in any country that gave Clintonworld enough money?

    Considering the Marc Rich pardon case, it’s known that money buys favors from the Clinton family. The question is how many favors have the international interests that donated millions to the Clintons bought from a woman who aspires to be the President of the United States?
