No no no. HERE is the reality:

This country is filled with nut bars.
It's like one massive insane asylum.

Seems the dems are unraveling as well. Something in the air.

Interesting article. Thanks for posting it.

I think it's on the right track (no pun intended), but in politics I always try to remember that things are never as great or as bad as they seem.

Instigating Progress Daily.

Lofty goal, I wish them succcess.

I remember reading a number of Mr. Greiders other articles. Interesting man. He had a great line in a book I read for a college political science course I was taking back in the early 90's, I'll have to look for the exact quote but it went something like this (and it was referencing the transformation of the American press from "reporters" to "journalists"); since the media and the political elites are drawn from the same sources, they share the same purpose.

I always figured it was a bit auobiographical in nature.

Interesting and true, but the Left is also unraveling. It's not even the parties, per se, but the establishment and status quo.

Redistricting after 2020 is not going to be kind to the Republican party in its current extreme-right state.

I wouldn't say the "left" is unraveling so much as the left, and younger voters who came of age during the Clinton/Bush years, are tired of Clinton Third-Way Republican-Light Democratic leadership. The differences between Clinton and Sanders was stark when debating regulating Wall Street.

It can't happen soon enough. As soon as the GOP can purge itself of the cancer that is the southern bigots and bible thumpers the better off this country will be.
