You have it reversed... the Republican Party IS the cuckoo's nest.
We're still waiting for the One Sane Person to fly over it...
It's astonishing how many open minded will still stick with a party (GOP) that frankly have left a party of Lincoln-years ago. With, the other party (Dems) have also evolved and appears not to distinguish itself as the party of the working class of FDR. More so in the South, as well as, other parts of the country. Folks, it's a failed two party system and the rule by plutocrats is the sad reality of who dictates policy in this country. Our republic and its core beliefs are bankrupt by the greedy and the privileged among us and the system is rigged. There are no checks and balances anymore with our three branches of government. Corruption and intellectual dishonesty is the motto of a mean spirited GOP party and the soulless of the other. Coupled with the unholy alliance with religion-our democracy has evolved into just meaningless story telling. Yeah, not a pretty picture.

So then we as citizens can't examine and identify problems in our own country, address them, then try to fix them? We should just shut-up about any problems that we see? Problems that are centuries old??
So what's it like underground? I ask because you apparently have your head buried in the sand!
