“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

The doom of the GOP is a blessing

So everybody on the right side of the beltway is fainting with the vapors because Trump is now the titular head of the party, at least until November. They're wailing and gnashing their teeth at how Trump will destroy the good name of the GOP, how he'll ruin the GOP brand for a generation, the sky is falling, etc, etc, etc. 

I say GOOD! 

And what GOP brand is worth salvaging? And who but GOP beltway insiders wants to keep the pathetic GOP status quo? It's the big-government party of Bush, Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, and Rove. These guys aren't interested in limiting government, only in redirecting our massive tax burden to the programs and agencies with which they reward their friends rather than to the democrats' programs and agencies. That and keeping their names on the A-list cocktail circuit where they all laugh at what suckers the American voters are to believe that voting in elections means anything substantive to our lives. It does not. We're merely voting for a hood ornament. Everything else basically stays the same regardless of who pretends to be in charge. 

I hope that from the ashes of the GOP immolation rises a Libertarian-leaning party that I can be excited to be a part of.
