I do agree with that first sentence particularly. The alliances with the wacky have largely turned me off in regards to that party. I even voted republican once or twice then was deeply disappointed by performance. Whoever said that they're better government managers is full of poop....neither party is good at managing what they enact IMO and whatever semblance of consistency the bureaucracy might attain is decimated by a change (like drumphy has done rather successfully from that viewpoint). NRA I've never particularly thought of as a valid organization myself....\n\nI've been screaming for years ... yes, I'm the old guy hollering at the kids to get off the lawn :p ... that we need a third centrist party in this country.\n\nThe current two party system doesn't work anymore. Force them to compromise on getting things done, like they did before Mitch McConnell made the Republican's the Party Of No. \n\nAs Moron Boy is fond of saying, what do you have to lose?\n\nBTW, I haven't hollered at the kids since last fall when they set up a booster rocket on the lawn. They were going about it the wrong way. \n\nI told them to go home and ask their parents for more money to buy some rocket fuel. One kid actually did and I got a visit from his 'helicopter' mommy. \n\nShe was not amused. \n\nSheesh! Lighten up Margaret.
