The GOP will have to decide which path it wants to take its party faithfuls to:-
1. Progressive, or
2. Conservative, if so which:-
a,b, & c are the traits of a civilised society, and often, only progressives can master by compromise of all three. Unfortunately, Conservatives
cannot, as they don't believe in compromises and holds stubbornly to their strict, dogmatic and rigid beliefs.
Do allow me to share an analogy of the Tree and the Grass.
The grass bends to the wind, no matter how light or strong, and cares not if it was trodden, as in time, it springs back up. Even if it was cut down,
it grows back up again. It holds firm to its humble core beliefs - only grass and are resiliant, winning in the end despite all odds..
The tree, however, grows from a root and stretches to the sky, strong, upright and tall, believing in itself to above all and perfect. It can
withstand breezes, but with strong winds such as superstorm Sandy had proven, it will topple down.
The grass however, will only grow so much, but reaches out to other grass, and over time, adapting to terrians, it covers hills, mountains,
skycrapers and pyramids, reaching far higher than that supposedly strong tree.
No prizes for guessing which political party is the tree or the grass.
Conservatism, in its superiority beliefs, presumes itself strong and inviolate,..and deluded. Progressives bend with the winds, but yet holding firm
in its core beliefs of survival... and survives.
I salute the Democrats for the past 2 elections, and hope to know who were the wise ones guiding them.
