(ED SHOW) A vote on women's rights has the far-right calling for Eric Cantor's resignation. Is this civil war in the GOP?

Yes - and it has being going on for awhile. They are still licking their wounds from November, and will probably get their butts kicked in the 2014 Senate/House elections. My hunch is that will be the catalyst for their eventual unification for 2016. By then, the "independents" will have a full eight-year dose of Democrat "rule" and should be ready for some "change they can believe in."

Yes PN I think it is happening. And well it should. The Gop needs to redefine itself. However, the problem, as I too pointed out a while back is that Republicans by virtue of having the Tea Party in their ranks, will eventually purge the moderate Republicans out and move politically further to the right.

I think if that does happen, then we might possibly see some sort of Rockefeller Republican movement in an attempt to move the Party to some semblance of sanity rather then extremism. The Tea Party, I hope, will then become a less than attractive THIRD PARTY separate from the Republicans. I sincerely HOPE that sensible Conservatives distance themselves from the Tea Partiers . They have to do something cause what they got ain't selling on a national basis.

The fight for control of Conservatism's cause may ultimately also come down to the current gerrymandering that Red States have created that affords avenues for Tea Partiers to silence more voices within their party by having those moderates "primaried" out of the selection process.

What be your thoughts on this issue, TOT?

I'm partially in agreement with you but I think that there is too much stubbornness on both sides of the congress.

I've felt for a long time that it should be easier for third parties to get on the primary ballot.

Maybe if that had been the case the Tea Party would not have taken such a strong hold on the Republican party.

The old socialist party has taken a similar hold on the democratic party as well from my perspective.

Something that I've noticed about the tea party is the fact that it appears to be embraced mostly by young entrepreneurs.

I'll concede that those devout conservatives are probably more extreme in their stances than those devout liberals.

Now Jimmy Mack if you will respond without attacking the person of Tot but the stance of his/her position we can go forward in search of a solution of problems facing this nation.

I'll attempt to speak my thoughts as well as I can so that all who read them might understand.

I saw your post Friday afternoon but felt no need to respond and I had made up my mind to never respond to anything that you post in the future.

As I cruised the post over the week-end I noticed that nobody was contributing and I really would like to see more participation on this site from a wider circle of folks.

Too much extremism from either side of an issue will only tend to suffocate the Courier blog site.

"now JimmyMack if you will respond without attacking the person of Tot..."

1. Respond to what exactly Tot?
2. I meet like with like Tot. You choose to label my responses as an "attack" on my part.
3. And yes, when YOU attack a whole body of people, "Liberals", I will answer in my own way. And there is absolutely nothing you can say or do about it. I see YOU Tot as the reckless extremist on this here blog site.
