The Republican America

The Republican America
What happens if the one party system does fall into place? What if it ends up being the Republican party, thereby dissolving the Democratic party to the point where there is no hope of it being returned in the foreseeable future?

Is such an event possible? I am not politically minded enough to know for certain, but I am smart enough to understand that such a future is scary for at least half of the country.

In such an event, will the Republicans take away your freedoms? Are you going to allow yourself to get stuck in such a country or will you have left before it was too late?

RE: The Republican America
It seems that Republican politicians today don't have to know anything, be they Senators, congressmen, or presidential candidates. Like they don't need to even know what are the three branches of government. All they need to know are a few words: liberal, socialism, far-left, communism, and yell them as loud as they can.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Then I'll just have to intervene.

Of COURSE Republicans would take away your freedoms. This has been part and parcel of conservative ideology forever.

For all their blathering about freedom and liberty, they can't wait to take away limit your freedoms about where to work, who to love, how to live. It's what they do.

Seriously?

Nothing would change.

Except there would be less political advertising meant to reinforce the public's illusion that they have a choice in the matter....

If that happened then progressive liberal republicans would become a thing.

The Republicans have been taking away your freedoms.   They simply do not define what they take away as freedoms.  

Ultimately no rights can possibly be inalienable in reality.   Nor is there such a thing as freedom that can be exercised without abridging some other freedom of some other people.   All there are, are rights that amuses some people to make some other people fight tooth and nail for, whether that is for, or irrespective of, the larger overall impact of the action.

The difference is, which sets of freedoms suits your purpose for others to have, and which sets of rights will best preserve your own security and options.
