[Creepily foreshadows the rise of Donald Trump... But this base is too dense to realize Trump is the biggest con job of all.]

Dear GOP base:

They want your votes. Of course, they want your money too. But they've been lying to you for several years now. In His name.

They will never be able to deliver to you the kind of America you're longing for. You long for it, only because they've been lying and telling you it's possible.

Ask for a refund. It's not possible.

The America you long for does not exist. Maybe it doesn't exist anymore; or maybe in never existed at all. Whatever it may have been, that world was yesterday.

Leaders – of which your party currently has none – would have prepared you for it. They would have carved out a vision anchored in reality. Rather than continuing to tell you what you want to hear, they could have been telling you what it is you need to hear.

Instead of extending palms and doling out empty promises, true leaders would have prepared you for difficult transitions. Tempered your expectations. Given you a little perspective. Eased the way. Adapting is never easy, because adaptation prevents extinction.

Sensible people recognize the fact that this country is filled with citizens and residents as diverse as anyone can possibly imagine. It’s who we are.

Sensible people recognize that the religion of one group has no place and cannot be the basis of the laws of all, specifically in consideration of our diversity.

Sensible people – including religious ones – love this country precisely due to the freedom every citizen has, of religion, which (sensible people never forget) also includes the freedom from religion.

Here is Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger :
"If the Republican Party wants the next generation of voters to listen to our ideas and solutions to real problems, we must be an inclusive and open party, not a party of divisions. We must be the party of limited government, not the party that legislates love. We must be the party that stands for equality and against discrimination in any form.

We must be the party that originally attracted this young Austrian immigrant."
Oh Geez.. Perhaps a sentence too long there, Ah-nold. But, okay… well said anyway.
So, base, stop letting them lie to you. Donate to the truth-tellers.

Let them lead you somewhere hopeful, somewhere real.
And maybe many others may just be willing to follow.

I think we all know a guy who did that once… some 2000 years ago.

Happy Easter.
