Another ‘Civil War’? Pessimism About Political Violence Deepens In A Divided Nation : NPR: https://www.npr.org/2018/10/31/662216598/another-civil-war-pessimism-about-political-violence-deepens-in-a-divided-nation
[Speaking as a Moderate/Centrist/Progressive/Technocratic Republican, it makes me angry how ‘popular’ a notion of ‘another American Civil War’ is with many Conservative Republicans, like how much they want to toss aside Constitutional principles like finding common ground and people with opposing political views working together to solve common problems. Tired of the extremist’ desired to either partion themselves off from those they disagree with, or try to subjugate/annihilate them. Doesn’t rise to the Godly/Enlightened Human level we think ourselves capable of, it just wallows in either the ‘Aggressive Alpha Ape’ need to ‘be in control’/’dominance’ behaviors or the ‘Cold-Hearted Lizard Brain’ calculations of ‘there can be only one, and it’s going to be me’ fatalist/nihilist/survivalist thinking. IMO. )
“Progressive & Radical Republicans”: The best “mission statement” I ever read: The Preamble to the Constitution.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Law & Order has to include Justice.
Successful Evolution demands balancing short-, medium-, and long-term needs and goals.
My “Republican Heroes” are not exactly “Conservative”.
