If you are really concerned about power centralization, then you should be on my side rather than where you are now. Centralized government is
indicative of the left over the past 40-50 years or so, but I'll agree that the Republicans have done little to twart our move to socialism.
Intent is measured by success - if the Dems were anywhere as focused on an "Any means necessary" strategy, we'd have a cancelling out &
even sized armies. We don't.
Actually, I think they are focused on "Any means necessary". If not, then why try to model yourself after the current Republicans? I think it
should be clear that the Republicans are in power for a few simple reasons.
1) The solid face (which tends to drive me nuts), using the same talking points from president to State Reps and has now trickled into conservative
debate (which is sickening really).
2) Proper marketing. As the Republican party moves left domestically, the Democrats have officially switched from liberals to progressives, which
should concern you all.
3) Keeping the crap out of the official stream. While the Republcans seem to rely on having the external pundits do their posturing for them and
either ignoring or marginalizing any of that internally, the Democrats have grasped onto the more marginal ideas and made vitriol a Party line. Dean
was a bad idea. Pelosi speaking is a bad idea. To name a few.
Ron Paul is younger than McCain and at this point, better credentialed.
Boy, I agree with you there. Don't get me wrong, I can't stand the GOP probably about as much as you.
Let's be honest though. The US Federal Government is getting bigger and spending more. It should be obvious to all that Bush and Co. have mortgaged
our country more than it already is, increased spending, and given us not much return for the money as of now.
He seems to be best Classified as a Wilsonian conservative Democrat rather than a Republican.
