Erick writes an exhaustive diary about what he believes is killing the GOP.
It’s incestuous no bid contracts for loyalists, lobbyists, K streeters and the like, and no one wants to change the apparatus because it’s a pocket liner for both the politician and the consultant.
The people they rely on make too much money to ensure it never happens and the elected officials like Boehner and McConnell are also mindful that it’d be the end of their power. They’d rather rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.
It is very incestuous and provides an incentive for no change in leadership, no change in thinking, and no change in culture. It is killing candidate(sic) like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% and Jeb Bush and also killing the GOP itself. The people who are most likely to call for change are the people now surrounded with the very consultants who benefit from a system that does not change.
