If democrats had brains they would be Republicans.
Hey, I wondered how we could get some Republicans with brains--this sounds like as good a way as any!
The republicans that are in the center are coming around and waking up to what is taking place. It is the far right republicans who will never be saved from the propaganda from fox news.
Well, conservatism has traditionally been known as the philosophy of strict adherence to the concept of individual rights, and, arguably, it may have been long ago, but not that I've noticed in all of my years. Certainly these days it's a philosophy of ultimate privilege for the elite few, at the expense of the subjugation of the great, "unwashed masses". As an irrelevent side note,, Libertarians differ from the two major parties in that they espouse a philosophy of "Eat, drink and be merry, but leave my stuff alone!'
"There is a destiny which makes us brothers, none may walk alone. What we bring into the life of others, comes back into our own."
