The reality is that Bush-Cheney scorched the political earth for at least
another ten years. Especially when the conservative media is so mean and closed
m.g.'s last post uses the terms "fearful", "Communist",
"Socialist", "goose stepping", "bad things",
"mindset", "one sided" and "overwhelming liberal
influence". Not bad for two paragraphs, especially when they are intended to
show the Democrats' latest failing, which seems to be - being too unified.
Re: Mark BAt least you would agree that it might be
"fearful" to have Communists in our Congress. Still, if elected one
should serve. As does the Socialist Sanders of Vermont. Going way
back to Vietnam for the last Democrat split kind of makes my point. However, it
is not that unity in a party is bad, but, wouldn't you agree that too much
"goose stepping" unity and not enough "diversity" leads to bad
things? We are kind of seeing this single mindset on college campuses where
liberal thought talks and conservative thought walks. I honestly see a danger
to a democracy when open debate becomes one sided. That's why I see the
need for Conservative radio and FOX News. They provide at least some balance to
the overwhelming liberal influence in education, news, and entertainment.
m.g. The Democrats have been split before, notably during the Vietnam war. But I
find it odd that someone would see the lack of a split as being a weakness. As
for Communists showing up in the Democratic Party, you are free to complain
about that IF it ever happens. Until then, it's just fear mongering, right?
The one thing I notice is that there is a tug of war in the Republican Party
about how conservative or moderate it will be. And in a democratic republic,
that's probably good, and the way it should be. Question. Why is there no
such tug of war in the Democrat Party? It seems that they just move left and
left, and left, and no one is trying to pull them back to the middle. About the
only moderate left in the Democrat Party was Lieberman, and he had to become an
independent to stay in office. There is even a registered Socialist amoung the
Democrats. How long before the registered Communists begin to show up. I wonder
how far the Republican Party would get with a member of the Nazi Party as one of
its Senators. (Actually, thinking about it, Nazi was probably a bad example
because Nazi stood for National Socialists.)

care about the good of the country, they would support Huntsman. He would be an

The names of the Circus clowns always change as well but the act is never new.
The GOP needs to do more than change it's make up or give us a different
clown, they need a new act.
We're counting on 'em to bring out the crazy again in '16!!
