  •  I am under no illusion about Republicans (0+ / 0-)

    They've been losing power and popularity of late, and I believe this will continue, but they're still a force to be reckoned with and in their current form will continue to be so for at least another 10-20 years. I don't think they're all evil, or stupid, or crazy, but they're clearly operating under a very different set of moral and ideological points of reference than we are, that allow and really compel them to be nasty, vicious and uncompromising. They don't act this way because they have to. The act this way because it's what they are. I'm not saying no compromise. But no unprincipled and unnecessary compromise just for show.

    Your friend is right. We are at war. They started it. We have to end it. They are at war not just with us, but with the principles that this country was founded on. We have to win this war.
