Save the DNC?

Yes, you heard me right. Save the DNC. Now, hold on, let me explain.

I was making the Pre-Cotillion rounds of my fellow Debutantes and wandered over to Jody's StealTheBandwagon, an excellent writer with strong opinions supported by intelligent arguements. (Blogroll her, folks. You'll be glad you did.) Her top post today caught my eye and made me think.

Just a sample:

Why has the two party system worked so well for our country? Because both parties have traditionally been toward the center of the political spectrum and because the center is where most American people reside. The moderate right and the moderate left have kept the fringe elements of their parties under wraps. Until now. As Republicans, we have a vested interest in the Democrats NOT going off the deep end.

Now, think about this, people. We've seen this in the Republican party as well, with the isolationists, the religio-fanatics (No, don't even try to imply I'm talking bout all religious people. You know who I'm talking about.), those who desire ethnic/racial/gender purity. And we've also seen these members of what Teddy Roosevelt called the "Lunatic Fringe" returned for the most part to where they belong, in the relative obscurity of their own festering, intollerence filled lairs.

As those episodes occurred, we also saw an increase in the Moonbat Factor on the left. It happens in an almost direct ratio to the Lunacy Factor on the right.

So now here we stand, at a moment in politics when we all helplessly watch the left spasm and jerk like some wounded animal, lashing out at all who disagree and chewing off it's own leg to get away from the snare, the Moonbats, which bind it where it now sits. As we do, remember that the political/ideological snare we walk past every day, the one off to the far right of the ever widening path, gets closer and closer to our own ankles.

Jody, you're absolutely right. The Democrat Party must purge itself of extremism or we, too, are doomed to follow in it's footsteps.

Thank you so much. I appreciate your words very much. :)

I disagree. Let them go off the deep end and into obscurity. The two party system does not need them.

Of course the REPUBLICAN party needs the Donks if they are to stay in power, but real conservatism will do just fine without the Democrats.

This has happened before. The scenario has occurred at least twice since the constitution was adopted. Here is what will happen:

1. The Donks will continue to overplay their socialist agenda and America will reject them outright.

2. Another conservative party, perhaps the Libertarian or Constitution Party (or, more likely, a new party formed as the result of the union of several other conservative entities), will take its place as the true right-wing party in the US, and the Republicans will take their rightful place as the more liberal of the parties.

Let's face it. There's nothing conservative about "No Child Left Behind" or even the "partial" privatization of Socialist Security.

The political pendulum is swinging to the right. The Donks cannot survive it unless they ditch the socialist agenda and become conservative. We all know that will not happen. Let them go, and allow the conservatives to being freedom back to the US.

I have commented and posted on this subject quite a few times, so I'm repeating myself. Check my blog and Rocker and Sage. Much of this is buried in the comments, however. Maybe it's time to work a new post on it.
