My reponse to Jeffrey Hart's article

The Republicans Are Now the Stupid Party


In its embrace of the religious right under George W. Bush, the Republican party became the stupid party. And committing suicide along with it has been the conservative movement. The party united around god, guns and gays is finished.

My response:

The neoconservatives are responsible for driving the party into the ground, not religious/social conservatives. In fact, I would not be surprised if Mr. Hart is yet another rat who jumped the neoconservative ship of fools.

If Mr. Hart wants a party that does not care about right reason or moral order, then I suggest he join the chirping sectaries in the libertarian party. As for the rest of us who are displeased with the current state of the party but who have not voted for "progressives" in a fit of pique, I suggest tuning out men like Jeffrey Hart and instead following the admonition of Cicero (as quoted by Lactantius): "True law is right reason conformable to nature, universal, unchangeable, eternal, whose commands urge us to duty, and whose prohibitions restrain us from evil...God himself is its author, its promulgator, its enforcer."
