An article in The American Thinker, by By Peter Skurkiss

Prior to the Third Punic War against Carthage in the 2nd Century BC, Cato the Elder was said to have ended all his speeches in the Roman senate by saying, "Carthage must be destroyed." ...............

    No need to do much of anything- - - -like most radical nutcase groups, they're destroying themselves. It's just not happening fast enough to suit moist of us. Look as their so-called "leaders"- - - -they're almost all aging dinosaurs who are slowly slipping into irrelevant senility.

    The way the Democrats have gone about putting people in different boxes according to race, one of 86+ genders, religion, national origin, etc. and dividing and conquering them and getting them to fight one another they've pretty much created a mess they can't control. All those subgroups have morphed into batscat crazy socialists, communists, fascists, and assorted political zombies that are busy fighting one another, and basically telling the Democrats that the Democrat party is no longer relevant. Look how Schumer, Pelosi, and Company have pissed off the Dreamers. The Dreamers surrounded Schumer's house recently and gave him what for; they're realizing that the Dems are just using them as a wedge issue and care not one Tinker's Damn about them or their issues. Throw in the Democrat fawning fealty to anything Islamic, and the demonization of anything Christian, and they've marginalized themselves to the point of not mattering. And a LOT of black people are finally catching on that the Democrats only use them for votes, and don't give a damn about them or their problems in the inner cities.

    The more radical LEFT the Democrats move, the more they fragment the party into a bunch of dog packs fighting over scraps. The time will come when a new party will emerge, and it will either be something good for a change, or something MUCH more radical and worse, like a hard core Socialist or Fascist party.

    I very much agree, only I am afraid we will end up with a party of weenie wush snowflakes, where everyone else is horrible and its all everyone elses fault. They are already raising their offspring to think like that

    I pretty much agree with Tennmike - with the caveat that the Republicans are only relevant NOW because Trump drew them back from the brink. I hope they stay away from said cliff, but don't forget: LIBERTARIAN - assuming of course, that they too can reverse their recent full-**** episode... *shrug*

    The Libertarian movement has been co-opted by a bunch of moonbat lunatics that confused the word Libertarian with the word Libertine. There is a HUGE difference.

    I'm not quite so worried about the Libertines as I am about the recent Marxist infection there too.

    I would apply the word Libertine more to democruds than Libertarians, but I suppose there are a few around.

    When I think Libertarian, I think Thomas Jefferson. He laid out the foundation for the Libertarian party, and what it SHOULD stand for. What passes for Libertarian now is pretty far off base. Rand Paul is close, but still strays from the Jeffersonian ideal.

    Yeah, it seems like a lot of Marxists and statists that just want to smoke pot are migrating to the Libertarian party

    Yeah, he probably needs to stray a little to keep his Republican base happy.

    Either that or they're intentionally trying to contaminate the party to scare off Republicans.

    If I had say over the government bureaus, orgs, depts, and sewing circles in D.C., then D.C. would be a ghost town for all intents and purposes. Neither the Articles of Confederation nor the Constitution allow them. Lots of people would be packing up and moving out. Call it kicking the suckling pigs off their government teats. Government neither produces nor sells anything; all revenue is generated from taxes and tariffs, i.e. WE The Unrepresented.

    Beginning with the Whiskey Rebellion, the entire history of U.S. government has been one of incremental infringement of the rights of the citizens. The old saying about those who trade freedom for security being deserving of neither rings pretty true!

    This is why when the Demonrats shut down the government to make a point, they seemed to not want to let it drag on very long - they don't want President Trump to see HOW many people working there are classified as "non-essential"...this time they might have overdone it. he is pretty good with "You're fired!"

    Hell the present Democrat party is already there! Just listen to what they say! Nothing much any of their leadership says makes any sense in a democratic society.

    Think about it, FDR's, Harry S. Truman, and JFK's Party was nothing like the present day insane asylum! Sure their party was quite a bit left of Ike's Republicans, but the present Dummycrats are way off the radar from that!. Actually, JFK wasn't a whole lot left of todays Repubs. I think if you could dig any of those guys up and revive them right now today, they would flip out!!! and get a new campaign sticker with an elephant on it.

    And as for them alienating themselves from this society, remember, they've been indoctrinating our kids for the last 50 years. This is NOT Business as usual.

    How did we get to the point a coup is underway and we tacitly sit buy and accept it. The left is engaged
    in a full blown attempt to overthrow our president and we sit on our a$$es and complain.
    We are up to our necks in a Civil War, so far no pitchforks. At what point do you say enough is enough!
    The time for good men to come to the aid of their Country is approaching rapidly.

    :agree: The democruds play politics like it's a war, and the Republicans play it like Chess. Seems to me the dems have the better strategy.
