John - I do acknowledge the gulf between liberal Democrats and Conservative Republicans. If conservatives behaved according to their principles, and voted that way, and liberals did the same, both of you would likely end up inadvertently supporting the Libertarian party. All I want is for the GOP to act like conservatives and get rid of these bad policies/habits they've developed the last 40 years, keep the good ones. Although the parties both say very different things, they do almost identical things, especially when we're all losing our freedoms. That's when we get to see real bi partisanship, the NDAA and the Patriot Act are good examples of this.What the two parties actually support more than anything else is totalitarianism.
