Today's required reading

I was looking forward to fraternal strife within the GOP, but it appears that won't happen. The right wing "traditionalists" or the far-right, as I know them, appear to have nearly won. The war was over before it started. :-(

The sad thing is that the Republicans will become a regional party, rather than a national party. And, while I certainly believe in Democratic ideals and policies, a one-party state regardless of who runs it, is a bad idea.

I'm fine with the Republicans being a mess for 2 or 4 years, but being a regional party of the uneducated for years to come is bad for America.

What do you think? RIP the GOP? or does a democratic society need a vigorous debate to survive?
