I think what Mr. Sowell is trying to say is that the Republican Party tries to be too nice and doesn't hit the fallacies of the demoRat party right in the middle of their lies. I agree. We need to get tough because like all liars, they have no conscience where honor and integrity is suppose to abide. Then the millions of Republicans who relied on everyone else to vote need to keep their mouth shut when things go down the drain to socialism/communism because they are the ones who helped make it happen. However, nothing is going to change for the better in this country until millions of people come to realize that they need to put God first in their lives on a daily basis.
