The best way to weaken the muslim threat to civilization would be to develop renewable energy from American sources. When oil goes to 12 cents a barrel, the mass murderers will buy a lot fewer weapons. The only reason they're in the 21st century on a physical level is because of all the money they get from oil. When that dries up (pun intended), their physical/infrastructural level will fall to match their intellectual/cultural level of about the 8th Century. (And those centuries are measured on the REAL calendar of the Christian era, not their false time system derived from their false prophet.)
DSM - history also teaches us that muslims are every bit as good as finding reasons to hate each other as Christians. Quarantine them to the area they currently occupy, let them rub each other out, and always watch for a chance to recover some territory for civilization. The Spanish did it - why couldn't anyone else?
The 2% difference in polling between the parties reflects the 2% difference between their ideologies and their practical politics. But if one of these parties were to adopt constitution-thumping American conservatism, it would leave the other party in the dust.

WJF - I must drop out for the night (thus giving you the last word). It's been good to have a debate that actually remained civil. Thank you for that. Good night, and God bless.

With the Republican Party, there's the additional problem of too many entrenched statists with a death-grip on all those lovely levers of state power. We can work to evict them from what is really their party, or embrace a party that doesn't have that problem. The second alternative would take less time, and time is something America just doesn't have. FDR started us on the road from Independence Hall to Red Square, and BHO drove us through the gates of Red Square. With his Obama"care" law, we are a social-democratic society now. We need to turn the bus around before the gates close on us, forever.

WJF wrote ((15 PM): Don't forget that Dave Brat and Ted Cruz are Republicans. Ted Cruz 2016 How I wish you were right! But Brat & Cruz (& Paul & Santorum & Bachmann & Paul) are, as I see it, the true RINOs - Republicans In Name Only. The real Republicans are Snowe, McCain, BushBushBush & any other progeny of Tom Dewey by way of Nelson Rockefeller. To make the Republican Party into the home of conservatism, and a home for conservatives like those named here, would be to burn the house down, build a new one and keep the elephant logo for the illusion of continuity. If that's the way to go about getting a third, truly conservative party for America, count me in.

Not all protests are lame, as Mr. Brat and his voters will tell you. The status of the Republican Party is not hallowed by Scripture or sanctioned by the Constitution. Whatever legitimacy it possesses is in the gift of the voters, and what the voters gave, they can take away and bestow elsewhere.

If they won't work to roll back the nanny state, what difference dies it make? It's not R vs. D. It's freedom vs. statism. Any candidate who can convince me he'll work to restore the constitutional republic gets my vote.

Speaking just for myself, I've been waiting for the Republicans to find conservatism since Richard Nixon was establishing wage & price controls, establishing the EPA and wading through all the blood in China to shake hands with Mao-Tse Tung. How long will you wait before you begin looking for conservatism elsewhere?

WJF - If the choice before you is between a nanny-statist Democrat, a nanny-statist Republican or a constitution-minding American conservative, who will get you vote?
