Pat, please remind your readers of the GOP Congress of 1947-48. They ended the Depression by ending various rationing and allocation powers of the Govt and passed Taft-Hartley, which at least put unions on a leash. Everything over party'hack/traitor Truman's vetoes. Yep, they got beat in the '48 elections, but they saved America for the next 20 years. Every GOP party leader since has reminded me of the *ss-holes who ran for high-school student office. I know Pat has to watch his language these days, but to ignore Saul Alinsky's ethnic backgroud is pathetic. "Rules for Radicals" could have been written by any Jewish ambulance-chaser or divorce lawyer. It's been 'their' SOP for a thousand years. Ever heard of the ACLU? Weimar? The Comintern?
