I believe that we need a good, viable two-party system and also that we need a slit Congress. But the Republicans have PO'd a lot of people and it is not the right people if they want to win in the future.<quoted text>Mmm. I don't think Lincoln could be classified as a liberal even by today's standards. he fought a war over secession which was by all I hear legal according to the constitution. Do you mean because he abolished slavery? There wasn't a northerner that didn't agree with that.
Everytime one party wins the other party is seen as on the way out. It just isn't going to happen. I know you're feeling very "right" about everything right now, but things have a way of evening out.
Republicans started gaining power back in the 70s and shared Congress in the 80s. And yet, government has only gotten bigger and debt has only gotten worse.
So what do the Republicans offer the lower and middle class?
