    On the level.

    I propose a discussion (not even a "debate").

    I am requesting that YOU tell us as concisely as you are able the MAIN differences you see BETWEEN the Democratic Party and the Republican Party AS YOU see them as existing IN THEORY.

    In other words, can you please tell us in a simple set of declarative sentences the things that are supposed to distinguish the Democratic Party (as it is supposed to be) and the Republican Party (as it is supposed to be).

    I am NOT asking you to tell us what you believe the GOP is currently doing wrong. I am asking instead for you to tell us what you believe it is supposed to represent and what then distinguishes the idealized GOP from the idealized version of the Democratic Party.

    FROM that starting point, I would like to then delve into a non-abusive DISCUSSION. But first, I think we need to carve out the starting point or the major premises.

    If you are game.

    He isn't game, he preaches.

    I won't ask Roo to do any such thing, but I will say that my "call out" WAS and IS intended to be non-abusive and on the level.

    Ilar, let Jake's lack of a response be the evidence you require. He has no intention of being honest with anyone here. His neutrality and supposed conservatism is nothing but a facade, a faux aegis he bears upon his chest. He feels no compulsion to answer your call, because he is afraid, a coward to the Nth degree. He is your run of the mill closet liberal.

    Fakey will never answer the call. Might as well talk about something else.

    Just saw this and looking at the lack of quality among most of the posters I am not too worried about what they think.

    As I have said before, I have no interest in the Democratic Party.

    My interest is cleaning the Republican Party of the trash that interferes with the party being the best that it can be for the American people, American values, and America as a whole.

    And I will follow the counsel of my Lord in Matthew 7:6.

    An interesting proposition, one which on its face seems silly. Why? Who defines what either party is "supposed to be"? At this time in the life of both parties does the OP suppose there is one premise, one platform, which all of those who say they are "Democrats" or "Repubiicans" subscribe to and support?

    Is the Republcan Party defined by Rush Limbaugh? Grover Norquist? Sarah Palin? Michell Bachmann? Donald Trump? Newt Gingrich? Mitt Romney? Gov. Christy or Gov. Walker?
