I'm thinking they're gonna have a rough time answering that one.
From what I can tell, they equate "one party rule" with commie-nism. Evidently the two are interchangeable.

That's their big focus, and they cram pretty much everything into that little box.

Sometimes I forget to view things through their hyper-paranoid worldview. Dang it.

Well obviously for conservatives one party rule under republicans would be preferable than one party rule under democrats and the opposite is true for you... unless you're still pretending to be impartial?

I've never pretended to be impartial.

That's just something you concocted in your mind. Sorry.

I prefer "No Party Rule". Outlaw all political parties. Have a primary to narrow the field down to the top 2 or 3 candidates. And be done with this constant bickering and battling between parties. It does nothing good for the nation or the people. The focus should be on other things besides destroying the opposing parties.
How Communist of you! You need to get right on that Constitutional amendment to rid yourself of all those troublesome rights we have.
No need to change the constitution. Change the election rules to make it one primary for all candidates and change the campaign finance laws to prevent contributions to anyone other than the candidate's campaign. No more multiple primaries. And no more soft money going to parties rather than candidates.
So you want elections to be run federally?
For federal elections? It wouldn't bother me at all. Both of the parties are nationally run. The Federal Campaign Finance Act is the basis for the campaign finance laws.

I noticed that "One Party Rule" started getting used on this forum by multiple posters at the exact same time. This appears to indicate that they all got this from some conservative talk radio host.
Yep. That's how the alternative universe operates. I know Limbaugh uses it. There are several everyday words & phrases that they use from that source.
Well that explains it.

I keep seeing this coming from the Right -- the notion that the Democrats are bad because they want "One Party Rule".

So, I'm curious: Does this mean the GOP does not want one-party rule, with them in charge of the White House, House and Senate?

If so, which one of those three would you be fine having the Democrats running?

Please explain why you're pointing at this as a bad thing.
This was the goal of the Gingrich Delay Axis. Has they succeeded we would look like Mexico and much of South America today. Consider conservative policies for the past 50 years: 10% of the wealthy and 90% living in poverty.
