A response to a family political dispute. One decrying the excesses of the Radical Republicans, the other, a Republican, defending the party as not all extreme. My response to the first position follows:
Your facts are accurate in general, but I recall a time when both parties were reasonable and cooperative. The Republicans have allowed the propaganda machines of Fox and company to drive them to extremism and to purge or excommunicate those who are moderate and reasonable. (RINO's -- Radicals in Name Only) They will either return to moderation or be replaced by a more reasonable party. The Democrats will eventually drift toward extremism, to some degree or another. that is why I have no party loyalty and am deeply suspicious of all who do.
