Left wing activists, nutcakes & socialists who advocate revolution to replace American freedom, have never understood America. If they had actually read something (anything), they would have found that the US government is ultimately firm & dependable. A revolution here would require a complete breakdown of society, in a nation where the government has one fail safe after another & people are compartmentalized as a backup plan.
For those who expect implementation of conservative principles, it’s best not to harbor any illusions over the GOP. They’re useless, but when the momentum of society & established schedules & institutions favor the continued existence of the two main American political parties, there is very little choice but to metaphorically drink from the fountain of youth & wait another couple of centuries for further parties to ascend to the fore. After all, nobody is forcing anyone to vote for someone that belongs to a particular party. So they exist, free & clear.
However; I do continue to advocate the takeover of the GOP by the Conservative faction. Which actually is a possibility. But it’s up to those particular politicians to effect.
You see, because of our system, our government & our founding; volunteerism has made the structure of our society akin to everlasting Roman cement; settled & almost immovable. Therefore, the two parties have evolved into stable governments of their own, within the past two centuries & within our own system of governance. They are unofficial, not Federalized & are each independent. If one wanted a different reality, the best tack to take would be to spend energies on a Conservative takeover to remake the GOP into something that it never really was – conservative.
As you see, I do have hope for the future. But it will take time for new & existing Conservatives to replace GOP leadership. The Republican Party needs to change the GOP from agenda-only driven to ideology-based. The time frame for this needed alteration is up for grabs, but it does need to happen, as there is no ideological difference between the GOP & the Democrats.
