The problem is that the GOP needs to fight every single last bit of liberalism tooth and nail. We cannot afford to cede another inch. If they did that, the might not win reelection next time. Well if that is the case, then they lose on principle. The house of cards will fall faster then. We are reaping the results of a bend but do not break defense. Where has it gotten the country? We have incrementally crept towards socialism since the early 1900's, now we are there. The only thing that can be done now that makes any sense is to go hard right on everything. Damn the pc police, say what you mean, and mean what you say. Anything less will prolong our slow death. I never thought that I would see the fall of the Roman Empire.
