We have no ace in the hole. The GOP needs to support Obama's policies. Let the country run as a Democrat dictatorship -- we probably couldn't stop that if we tried. Just let it runs its course for the next 4 years and then ask the people if they like what they see.

The old adage of the frog in the pot of water, with the temperature slowing rising? That's what we've been doing -- slowly, slowly, inch by inch, over a period of decades, drifting toward fascism as the GOP "sort of/kind of" tries to stop the Democrats.

What we need to do is help the Democrats apply a blowtorch to the hindquarters of the frog. Then see if We The People jump at the chance to make a course correction.

The republican party may fracture before 2014.

The only 'ace in the hole' that conservatives may have lives in Alaska.

Sounds good but I don't think there is any sort of an honest election at the end of that or perhaps not any election at all. The die is cast. Obamacare guarantees that all future elections, assuming honesty and existence of elections, will be "fought" on who can improve the healthcare lot of various groups. It's how it goes in England. Obama has ultimate power now, the power of literal life and death over every single American. He has the Homeland Security law that allows him to disappear or kill anyone he chooses without any pretense of recourse to habeas copus or judicial proceedings and the sayso as to what treatment any patient in may receive or whether the patient may receive treatment at all.

The “blowtorch” will be the tens of thousands of layoffs by the military complex as the result of the 1.5 trillion in cuts to the Pentagon...
