Can a sub-party strategy, as outlined in previous posts, actually change the character of our political system? It isn’t a theoretical question. I’m pressing this concept because I watched it executed successfully in the South, as a bridge across which frustrated Dixiecrats could cross over to the GOP.
Today’s post at Forbes finally names names. It describes in some detail the tactics and methods used by a sub-party in Texas to replace the state’s relatively moderate GOP leadership with Southern Conservatives. That same process could be leveraged again to create broader diversity of opinion in both parties.
