    The gop has nothing of value to even contribute to the political dialogue in this country.

    Why do they even bother?

    What's the point?

    They have no solutions---they provide no alternatives----they are completely unable  solve any problems or deal---in an effective fashion----- with any of our nation's issues....................what IS the point of them even participating?

    And as always with them: worse comes to worse.

    They not only categorically refuse to engage in any critical thinking: now they are barring young people from even being taught the critical thinking skills they need----- in order to function in this world.

    They provide cover for corporations and the wealthy----and other than that what is their actual function as a political entity?

    What solutions to our problems do they offer----or does their thinking stop short?

    Does it begin and end with the fabled Winner's Circle?

    I think it does.

    They expend all their time and energy to win elections.

    After that....................................................................................nothing---because that's as far as their thinking goes.

    Their political machinery is geared toward winning elections----- and that's the only gear that works-that's the only gear they have---that's the sole extent of their contribution to the political dialogue in this country----and if that's it----and it truly is: they might just as well leave the stage.

    They have no contribution to make.

      idea if it hit them in the head... I am so sick to death of
      having to fight the same insane irrational battles
      over and over again I want to scream...

      end of rant....
