It seems the old center in Politics has collapsed, the Moderate republican can now be considered to the left of center;
which one might consider McCain if he had any principles that he actually stood for--
the conservative republican now holds the center, and the right wing of the party which is basically fascist has moved toward the left, which leaves an outright dictatorship a viable option, given the fundamentalist approach to establishing a Theocracy as the true right wing of the party.
I am thinking that given that, the liberal wing of the Democratic party must unite with the smaller fringe parties to form a new liberal party to combat the rising tide of Conservative forces which are moving towards a mentality of Fortress America because of dwindling resources, paranoia, and protectionism.
We must return to FDR's formula:"The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself"
if we are going to survive as a free Nation.
