  •  I agree, the modern GOP (5+ / 0-)

    is not in any way reasonable.  But there are different degrees of unreasonable, and the teabaggers are worse than the mainstream GOP.

    Anyways I think we are in a dangerous period of history whenever one of the parties is batshit.  We really do need two reasonable parties.

    •  Yeah, but the Repubs aren't going to be (5+ / 0-)

      either of those parties. Listen to Mike Lofgren, who worked for them for 30 years:  they're not like an American political party anymore. They're more like a mid-twentieth-century authoritarian movement, or a religious cult.

      If we make it through this, I think we'll look back later and find it was a period of realignment.  What's lacking is a party based around either workers' economic needs or the rule of law/Bill of Rights. Those are the things that are being neglected by both parties. I could see a Libertarian party springing up, some version of a Labor party springing up, or maybe something we haven't ever considered. Meanwhile the Republican party will dwindle away and the Democrats will become the party of sane big money.

      I tried to go online to find a similar bear head...but when I searched “Big Bear Head” it gave me a San Diego craigslist ad entitled “Big Bear needs some quick head now” and then I just decided to never go on the internet again.--Jenny Lawson
