It is an excellent summary, as presented in various WSJ opinion pieces, regarding why the USA Republican Party is seen, in the USA and everywhere else, as "the raving lunatic party" and how to improve that image both domestically and abroad. As noted in a few of the articles, the major problem that faces the USA Republican Party is that it has been appealing to what the USA Republican Party has called "low-information voters:" people who are ignorant about what USA Republican Party has done against them and their country in the past. In the Information Age, some of the articles suggested, appealing to idiots for their votes is a losing strategy in the long term. The USA Republican Party needs to become the liberal, progressive, reason-driven Party that it used to be 100 years ago.
