    The Birchers in the GOP support their extractionist agenda as much as other Republicans. Birchers are like the GOP crazy cousins, a little weird to mainline GOP'ers but still part of the family.

    The real powerbrokers in DC don't care how crazy the Birchers become, as long as they keep voting w/ the rest of the GOP bloc.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      or as you call them Business GOP to merge with Business Dems to create a more formal "bipartisan" organization.  The problem with that is that its based strictly on a corporate policy agenda, which is usually counterproductive to the economy and totally inept when it comes to other areas of public policy.

      Corporations cannot and should not be allowed to control the legislative and political agenda in the US by coopting leaders of both parties.  They're horribly unqualified to do so and the Constitution doesn't allow it.
