Edmund Wright nails it. In today’s political reality, our goal is one: stop the Democrat-flavored socialism we have today. Period.
Everything can be boiled down to that. One current party is awful, but the other one is evil. I say do what Ronald Reagan did: improve on the one that is merely awful. This option is nauseating perhaps, but it’s our only choice.
(Pssst. Note to Libs who have difficulty with reading and comprehension: The “Tea Party” isn’t a political party, it’s a political movement.)
