With all due respect, Dr. Sowell, the entire problem is EXACTLY the history of the Republican Party in the last 20+ years. When all voters see from the Republicans is talk and cave, talk and cave, it becomes very difficult to expect anything like a Normandy in the future! You are welcome to call this a Dunkirk, but I've seen way too many "strategic retreats" led by Republicans like Boehner, McCain, McConnell, etc. that amount to nothing more than appeasement and downright abandonment of the principles they were elected to fight for in the first place. We've had way too many Dunkirks. We want a Normandy.

"My question is how can we compromise when one side refuse's to negotiate. Obama and Democrats do this constantly and then claim we are obstructionist. A perfect example is the ACA." Spot on.

"You want to have a purge? I’m down. But how about we wait till after we vanquish progressives? Is that too much to ask? " What needs to be understood that any Republican who sides with the Progressives is a Progressive and needs to be purged. This isn't a party-line vote, it's an ideological battle. And no seat with an R next to it should be immune (I'm looking at YOU Mitch McConnell and John Boehner and John Cornyn).

If only we could be so lucky. The next words would come from Joe Biden "If he goes, I go!" to which we all would cheer!

Before the 60's, drug use was a societal taboo - self-policing, just as teenage pregnancy and many other societal ills. That all changed with the era of "sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll".

And based on what justification? The same bad logic Stossel argues - that it is too expensive in terms of money? The problem with the war on drugs is that it is being waged by soldiers and not by parents. Principles and values start in the home. When they aren't being taught there, no amount of military or police force is going to be able to pick up the pieces. "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." - John Adams
