“You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain”- Batman at the end of The Dark Knight

I had been listening to the last dialogue in The Dark Knight, the dialogue between Batman, Commissioner Gordon and his son. Batman saved Gordon’s son but at the risk of Harvey Dent losing his life. Knowing about his murders, Batman will cover it up and blame himself for them. Batman will be seen as an outlaw and will be hunted down to hide the dark side of Harvey Dent. Batman has mentioned people deserve more and because of their faith.

Batman will be hunted down. He is still the hero they need but not right now. Commissioner Gordon says we’ll hunt him because he can take it. He is as Commissioner Gordon says: “Because he is not a hero, he’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector”

Why I mention this final scene is because I see a group in America going under a similar type of event. It is the Republican Party. Formed by a coalition of people to stop slavery in America, the party helped win the Civil War and freed black African slaves. It started out as good, but over time and a century later, it has become the opposite of what it stood for. It stood for fairness and civil rights for all Americans regardless of race, but a century later, it became an outcast for the people it once served in the 60’s with the nomination of Goldwater. Black America felt betrayed and because of that they feel they have no other choice but to vote Democrat despite there are blacks and minorities who lean conservative. One party rule has cities in an economic choke with no hope for people who vote for the same party again and again just because of history. One party rule by any party is not good.

With the nomination of Obama and the Democratic Party being more ethnically diverse, the Republican Party stands to be outcasted for its image on race and equality. They will be condemned and hated, but it will cause the exorcism of the racist demons that have plagued it for almost half a century making it stronger and better.

A President Obama will make African-Americans hate the GOP even further. Things need to get worse before they get better. The loathing will make them repent and open the doors to everyone not just Southern whites. Sure, some white conservatives will be angry, but they have to realize they can’t get all the attention. The Republicans need to apologize sincerely to all people of color (not just African-Americans) for what happened in 1964. It can then be open to people of all backgrounds and will give the Democrats a run for their money. But outreach is severely needed so people can feel as if their participation matters.

Anything can happen in 4 years, but the GOP needs to be ostracized so when the Democrats do screw up with a supermajority, they can redeem themselves in the eyes of the public. The GOP will repent for what has happened since 1964, it will make them stronger and relevant in the 21st century. They need to stop and re-evaluate things, true it might take a long time or they might come back in 2 years. It will not take decades for women and minorities to be GOP Presidential Candidates like what some pundits and people I’ve heard say; they can come in 2012. I look at people like Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, Michael Steele and others.

The Republican Party has lived long enough to see itself become the villain.

The Republican Party offers more ideas than Democrats, I know this. I’ve lived near a city controlled by Democrats for decades, a lack of jobs and now the 2nd poorest city in America. But the GOP will never be a party of ideas or a party for everyone until they become an ethnically diverse party. It starts after this election and will not end after one victory. It will keep on going until the end of time. They need to solve this image problem and then work hard to bring everyone together. When the day finally comes, the Republican Party will be the true party of freedom.

My name is not important, but the idea is more important. Ideas cannot be stopped. V, the freedom fighter from V for Vendetta said that “ideas are bulletproof”. They cannot be shut down, they must continue to be alive so everyone can be more enlightened!

That’s all I have to say, send to as many people as you can and to the RNC. Make our voices heard loud and clear! We can do it!
~This article was written by an anoymous writer on how he thinks he can help the GOP in the future for all people of America regardless of race, color, sexuality, etc..He listened to the last dialogue of The Dark Knight and it got him to write this. He prefers to be anonymous, because his name is not important.

I concur, except for the excoriation of Barry Goldwater. He opposed some of the federal bills that year on the basis that they were unconstitutional, not that he thought things should be segregated or people shouldn't have rights. If he were alive today, he'd be against the federal War on Drugs which has devastated black communities.

Goldwater came out in the '80s for gay rights and was very libertarian with those sorts of views; libertarians basically can't be racist because they want everyone to have equal rights.
