    with which they attack the president, the Democrats, liberal and progressives.  Think about their total disregard for the suffering of the most vulnerable people in this country.  Think about the choke-hold grotesque figures like the billionaires' Koch brothers and their ilk have on their party.

    They are vile, sadistic, heartless, small-minded, and go out of their way to exploit (and spread) ignorance, to fan the fires of hate, of racism, of homophobia, and they do it with utter contempt, with hate, with total disregard.

    Well, I feel the same way towards them (as a party).  The feeling is visceral.  If I had it within my power to totally destroy them as I party, I would do so in a heartbeat, without thinking twice.

    You know why?  Because I don't think they are legitimate; they are anti-democratic, a dangerous insurgency with extreme views that have done incalculable damage to this country.

    But that's just me....  I understand others want to be "reasonable" with these folks.  It is their prerogative.  Just don't expect unreasonable people to be reasonable.

      ... I still think that they're a legitimate party. I was raised by lawyers, though- just being an drunken bigoted abusive asshole doesn't mean that somebody isn't a citizen.

      May I present an idea that I think you'll agree with?

      Once you get a boulder rolling, you don't let it stop until it's where it needs to be.
      Let's push some stuff through, Majority Style.
