    •  I have nothing against the other party, per se. (4+ / 0-)

      Just most of the people in it.

      I would welcome a sane, responsible, intelligent Republican party.

      Heck, I would potentially vote for sane, responsible, intelligent Republicans, if those individuals were actually better than their Dem counterparts in a given election.

      The reality, however, is that the few times I see such, they're always at the county level or below.  It seems nearly impossible for a sane, responsible, intelligent Republican to go any higher in the Republican party.

      And, btw, by sane, intelligent, responsible - I mean someone who is willing to let evidence triumph over ideology.  Test out your desired ideology, test out the opposition's, see what problems occur when either are tried, use the better one (for the American people as a whole), and try new variants based on that better one, even if it is against your ideological desires.  Rinse and repeat.
