Repblican party heading toward implosion from common sense.

What happens when a party which embraces dogma sees a majority of its members actually thinking critically about an issue? 

I am delighted to see that the overwhelming number of high schoolers today have no idea why gay marriage isn't legal everywhere, why pot is illegal, why you can have your dog put to sleep when he's suffering but euthanasia is illegal in most states, etc. 

It's going to be a rough generation for you if you don't make some changes, party of Hurr Durr.

Agrees with pot legalization?  Good for you.  But what does your party do about it in 2016?

If they were smart, which they aren't, they would basically omit it from the party platform and let the states decide it on their own.

I don't know about that, but they do believe in being able to choose what they want for their own lives rather than the religious right doing it for them.
