Adapt or die

The Republican Party needs to look toward the future for its success for the next election and the next generation of voters.

Republicans alienate the youth of this nation by opposing anything that would better the lives of gay and lesbian Americans.

The Democratic Party in the 2008 election had the widest margin among voters under 30 in recent history.

The outright hostility from our Republican legislators from state Assembly to Congress to their gay and lesbian constituents will not affect those individuals only, but will also affect independents and young voters to reconsider voting for Republicans. Evolve or die, that is all I ask from our leaders in our local Republican Party.

Hostile attitudes towards LGBT people will only buy so many votes until the older generation dies off. We need to adapt so we can become the party of the future.
