The torch has been passed in the Republican Party. May the young guns like Marco Rubio of Florida take that torch and infuse my party with a new attitude that embraces all who believe in limited government and fiscal responsibility but rights for all. The extreme right-wing hardcore conservative WASP attitude that has ruled since 1964 is now ended and may it rest in peace.
Young Mr. Rubio, take that torch and run with it. Open my GOP to all, including moderate women and minorities, and make my party strong once more.
