I should probably tell you Marge...as near as I can detect this system of "Hijacking" has been going on since before Teddy Roosevelt's
Administration.. It did not begin in my youth...though I hardly consider myself in those days as having sufficient acumen to know the difference. THe
difference is a concept onto which I stumbled late in my life.
I too am severely disappointed in the republican and democarat partys. I dont know all the names of the partys it the time of Teddy Roosevelt. For
some reason out of history the Bull Moose Party comes to mind..but I am sure there were other partys with other names in those days.
Nonetheless I get very wary and on guard when I detect that someone is trying to stroke my emotions for control.
Also for some reason on these boards some often are wont to mistake conservative as being Republican. I disagree..simply because the track record
indicates to me that the Republicans will also "Hijack " if the opportunity presents so. And they have done so with the religious right out
here..unbeknownst to many of these Believers. THere are lots of other very conservative peoples out here who do not associate or agree with the
methods of the Repblican party.
I am gratified to detect that you understand this point.
Thanks for your post,
