Status of American Politics: September 2004 Archives

The dinosaurs reached a zenith just prior to their extinction. It occurred to me we may be witnessing the same pattern with the Republican Party. As a minority party during the last part of the last century, Republican conservative views served our nation well on a host of issues. They acted as American conscience regarding debt and deficit spending. They acted as an ethical check on runaway cultural norms moving toward "anything goes". And they served as a check on encroachment of state’s rights by the federal government and bloating federal beauracracy.
