The fringe of the extremists in the GeeOpie are well represented by the Tea Party Nativists, Patriots, etc. Here is an example of the very loony xenophobic thrust of their anger on Obama's Executive Order. This is the movement that is the boiler that stokes the fire of schism within the Republicans. The wiser elements (the very few and silent) are trying to contain them, but Tea Partiers are an obstreperous bunch and really don't care who they piss off. It is this element that could, and will hamper or destroy any Republican Party appeal in 2016. I remember back in the early days in Georgia when I used to email spar with Jenny Beth Martin. Now, she is the poster child and bull horn of the tea baggers:
Every man's ability may be strengthened or increased by culture.
