  •  What a fantastic essay! (5+ / 0-)

    Thoroughly enjoyed this, Mark. I've often thought of the parallel between the Roman republic and our own republic, with the British in the role of the ancient Greeks:  we use their language, their legal tradition, and so forth.

    I hope we don't lose our republic, but if the other side wins the coming election...we're doomed.

      is the the other side says the same thing.

      I hope we don't lose our republic, but if the other side wins the coming election...we're doomed.
      They (teapublicans) honestly believe and have believed since President Obama was elected to office that the demise of America was set in motion.

      Hard to put much credence in what they believe when their base is convinced the president is from Kenya and the birth certificate is a fake.

      As I have pointed out to those on the other side...we (liberals) may not be right about everything, but for hells sake, it helps if one is grounded in reality before making predictions about the demise of America.

      It falls on deaf ears and blank stares.
