Return to the Dark Ages?

Dover, PA: The rapidity with which the enemies of reason have advanced their agenda is a frightening omen for our future. Our President’s support for the war on science is sad and mystifying. How do people reconcile uber-patriotism with cutting the legs out from under the very source of our power? This should not have been a partisan issue, but the President and his strategists have cynically made it one.

Republicans who grew up in the era when the GOP was identified with sophistication in world affairs, and fiscal discipline at home, have to be horrified by what has happened to the party. If they are not, then they are simply wedded to partisan advantage, whatever the cost. The Republican party has sold its soul to the fanatics, and the rest of us must pay the price.

I've added a link to DefCon America. Take a look and get involved--it's our future.

Carlos, unfortunately the above is why using that letter ID thing is a good thing - it prevents spammers from randomly hitting your site.

I did figure out how to avoid the problem I was having before. If you are going to comment as blogger, you have to log in BEFORE you try to write your comment and put in the string of letters.

BTW, I completely agree with your post. I'd add that in addition to fanatics, today's GOP consists of the morally bankrupt who see an era of scarcity coming and have decided that everyone else will pay the price, just not them and their cronies.

I am not a republican....but I sympathize with what has happen to your party. I applaud your insights; we are, when all is said and done, in this together.
