    I for one will gladly celebrate the day the last conservative Republican in the US becomes extinct. Then we'll have a change of fixing this country. JOIN!

    •  I'd settle for a return to sane conservatism, (7+ / 0-)

      perhaps the pragmatic conservatism of the Nixon era without the criminality and paranoia.

      In sports, at least one strong opponent is necessary to keep a team from getting lazy and overconfident -- the Yankees do better when they've got the Red Sox breathing down their necks, the 49ers might have had a better post-season if they'd had more challenges from within their own division. Same thing in politics -- you need a strong opposition party to challenge what you see as the status quo and make you give reasons for your actions.

      I wouldn't mind getting back to the days when we could have rational discussions over the issues that really matter to all Americans, rather than getting side-tracked with issues that are basically a matter of personal morality.

      Now to try to end the wars we ask our gay and straight soldiers to fight. -- Chris Hayes (modified)
