An Echo Not A Choice

Arnold Schwarzenegger, in an interview with a German newspaper a while back, instructed his fellow Republicans to move leftward. This, he said, would result in endless political victory. The newspaper quoted him as saying that the “Republican Party currently covers only the spectrum from the right wing to the middle, and the Democratic party covers the spectrum from the left to the middle…I would like the Republican party to cross the line, move a little further left and place more weight on the center. This would immediately give the party 5% more voters without it losing anything elsewhere.”

When is this formula going to start working? Perhaps the country-clubbers will argue that the solution is to move even farther to the left. But why stop there? Why don’t they just go all the way and merge Schwarzenegger Republicanism with the California Democratic Party? That way in a one-party state they could win everytime.
