    between the parties unmistakable. I've never considered voting for a Republican for president ('76 was my first vote), but even into the 1980's in local and state wide elections many times the more progressive candidate was in what I now call the once upon a time GOP. Think Senators Mark Hatfield or Bob Packwood, and sure they came with positions I didn't always agree with (and that was true even before learning things that weren't known then), but they were at least reasonable alternatives.

    It matters not how small the beginning may seem to be: what is once well done is done forever. Henry David Thoreau, in Civil Disobedience
