Dear Judge, TY for your focusing article. Insight from Eric Hoffer's, "The True Believer" may add to this discussion, in it describes mass movements that believe a "leader/big brother/messiah" will affect necessary changes to a "better life". Abdicating personal responsibility to lead oneself, to follow another as knowing better is a return to obedience to authority that shocked so many in the Milgram experiments (pardon the pun). If personal conscience is eliminated, it doesn't matter who is the next president for the next 4 or 8 years. Linking to Larry Elder's article on "brown shirts", an America of desensitized followers without care for others is return to an environment where holocaust-like atrocities will be the norm.

You are describing most democrats and a few republicans. But the large majority of active republicans are not desensitized followers without care for others.

Yes they are.
They Republicans are way zealous for their party then democrats. They continually sell themselves out and put their party first.
Democrats actually have principles, they are wrong principles, but they are far less likely to violate them. That is why the country continues in the leftward motion.
What if the principal parties' candidates for president really agree more than they disagree?

What if they both support the authority of the federal government to spy on Americans without search warrants? What if they both support confining foreigners, uncharged and untried, in Guantanamo Bay? What if they both believe the president can arrest without charge and confine without trial any American he hates or fears?

What if they both believe in secret courts -- kept away from the public and the press -- that can take away the rights of Americans? What if they both think...
