13. I disagree, but only in part

You see, I don't think the thing you are describing is the GOP. I think out there somewhere, unheard from now days, there are still what I like to call Eisenhower Republicans. These are fiscal conservatives who couldn't give a hoot in hell about social issues, they care a great deal about the environment and mostly they care about fair business practices and stability. Interestingly enough they are not married to the Military Complex, and they are generally supporters of strong public education, mostly with a trade-school tradition. People like that bring important argument to the political discussion, and I miss them for the sobering they give those of us who are much more quick to jump.

The part you talk about is an upstart. They may have been raised on Ronnie Reagan but they don't actually use him for anything other than a misrepresented Icon. In truth they are overly pampered parasites, predators who feast on the toil of the nation. Many are just misguided and disgruntled clowns who in my experience are almost always poorly educated and, as you so clearly state, much effected by the propaganda of FOX and its likes. We won't be able to get rid of them until we've restored education in the country to its rightful place and then run at least one generation through it.
