    By the way,

    Is that a considered opinion? Based on? It sounds like the Daily Kos to me, or CNN. I get them confused.


    I keep thinking one Party or the other will split. Back at the height of the tea party fever, I imagined the GOP would splinter into the old GOP and the new "Liberty Party" or something, a more libertarian rendition of conservatism.

    It's tempting at the moment to see the Dems splitting into the old guard and the Socialist Dems, but that's probably wrong, too.

    But it's true that the parties are radically transforming. The young socialists are moving the DNC away from the aging ranks of the Bill Clinton Party.

    Trump's populism has realigned the GOP, I think as a direct consequence of the tea party insurgency a decade ago.

    However, I really don't think the American electorate is going to embrace a socialist Party, so they might find themselves in the wilderness for awhile.

    I'm tempted to hope they go the way of the defunct Whig Party (that would be Whig Way, as in, Whig Way did they go), but I recall enthusiastic predictions of the death of the GOP after the AuH2O wipe-out in '64, which predictions weren't realized either.
    I have never understood this. Political ideologies don't go away.

    So clever.

    Know Nothing

    The Native American Party, renamed the American Party in 1855 and commonly known as the Know Nothing movement, was an American nativist political party that operated nationally in the mid-1850s. It was primarily anti-Catholic, xenophobic, and hostile to immigration, starting originally as a secret society. The movement briefly emerged as a major political party in the form of the American Party. Adherents to the movement were to reply "I know nothing" when asked about its specifics by outsiders, thus providing the group with its common name.

    On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

    Anyone who craves power enough to run for president is the kind of person who would abuse that power if given the chance. I think we can look back on all the recent presidents of our lifetimes and see that they are not exactly average Americans.
    You can't spell "hatred" without "red hat".

    I see that "theocracy" is conveniently bad again.

    I never cease to be amazed at Leftists who desperately want theocracy when it advances their failed policies and then suddenly hate it again when it might cramp their style.
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.
