The GOP: An Observation

We are watching, these days, the GOP eat itself.  If ever there were an illustration of Jesus’s ‘a house divided against itself cannot stand’ it is in the behavior of the Republican Party.  Lincoln would be totally ashamed.  Justifiably.  The GOP is acting disgracefully and it deserves to lose every election for the coming decades.

But the Dems shouldn’t rejoice.  They are the only other option in our corrupt two party system and so are only going to find themselves winning because people hate them less, not because they are loved or have a better plan.

It’s a tragedy that a country like ours has been reduced to sending to office the vilest and most self serving of the population rather than the cream of the crop.  But, as they say, a people get the politicians they deserve.  And given America’s present lack of morality and its tendency to exalt perversity to the level of normalcy, it’s unsurprising that we find ourselves saddled with the worst in our politicians, and our politics.

    Lincoln could not be a republican, today. Then again, neither could Bush the First, Reagan, Nixon, or Eisenhower. Bush II would manage to sneak in.
