The battle for common sense- and survival- in the GOP
So does this guy. Bill Scher, I mean. Not (shudder) Rand Paul.
Being out of power has cut Republicans off from any motivation to be rational. Ideological self-indulgence is the order of the day. And while I understand the ascendancy of libertarianism- an ideology I despise- in this self-centered, post-modern, "anything goes" society, it does nothing to help the GOP serve as a bulwark against cultural anarchy.
I'm not going to become a brain-dead ideologue. Not gonna happen. And I share Mr. Scher's concern that the nomination of Paul- whose popularity with Republicans is positively scary- would lead to the breakup of the Republican party- and assure the election of Hillary Clinton in 2016.
