The two party system in America which has been in existence since the beginning of the American Nation is nearing collapse. In an attempt to understand the November 2012 election debacle for the Republican Party, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a report concluding that unless drastic policy changes are made “it will be increasingly difficult for Republicans to win another presidential election in the near future.” The report describes the party as ” ideologically rigid, still clinging to the days of Ronald Reagan, unable to speak to a wider electorate and increasingly viewed by voters as indifferent to the struggles of average people.” The report criticized the party for not embracing “comprehensive immigration reform,” not providing more help for people’s economic needs and not being “inclusive and welcoming” of minority groups on social issues.
The report is looking at what happened in November from a political and not from a bio-social perspective. It is looking at it from the viewpoint of social symptoms and not from the underlying social movement from which surface events are manifested. From a bio-social perspective there has been a marked shift to the left in the political mainstream that began around 1960. This was, in part, manifested by a rise in people’s dependency on the government (welfarism), in collectivism, in mechanistic thinking and in the use of the intellect as a defense against emotion. The goal is to wipe out individual authority and replace it with the collective authority of “Big Brother”. Like a social tsunami, this wave from the political extreme left first destroyed the Democratic Party in the 1960s and now has moved to the right and is in the process of destroying what remains viable of the Republican Party
In order to win over the electorate what the RNC task force is recommending is nothing less than a capitulation to the political left by going along with the very same socialist agenda that are currently being instituted by the Democratic Party. This “me too” policy is self-serving and politically motivated. It means that there is no longer any real difference between the two parties since they are both offering the same socialistic measures. It also means that there is no longer any real opposition in organized political parties that provides a viable alternative to the socialist onslaught being actively spread by the political left.
