I have read this thread with much interest. Now if these same “converts” could just figure out that the entire right/left paradigm is nothing more than a dog & pony show to keep us entertained, they’d be even better yet. I think there are only a handful (if that) of real, honest to goodness patriots in all of government. People like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. The rest are basically two cheeks on the same butt. It’s the Hegelian Dialectic in full play.
