I read a good deal of history in the 60’s trying to figure out how the Communists were taking over countries. One thing that jumped out at me was that countries who tried to compromise and take members of the Communist party into the government and give them a real role found that very shortly all the deals they thought they had with the Communists were reneged on, and the Communists had taken over the government and turned it into an authoritarian dictatorship.
We are watching the Bush administration and the Neocons perform the same actions. They use every effort to compromise with them as a further step to take total control. “Compromise” is a word that to the Republicans means another step towards conquest. They don’t respect their opponents enough to honor their word.

From the NY Times:

You would think that Senators Carl Levin and John McCain would have learned by now that you cannot deal in good faith with a White House that does not act in good faith. Yet both men struck bargains intended to restore the rule of law to American prison camps. And President Bush tossed them aside at the first opportunity.

That is exactly the same pattern as the Communist Party when it wanted to take over the government and turn it into an authoritarian one-party dictatorship. The extreme anti-Communists during the Cold War were so afraid of the ability of the Communists to conquer the free world that they adopted their tactics. Now they are bringing those tactics home and applying them here in America.

This, in my opinion, is the reason the Democratic Party leaders in Washington have failed America. They believe that they can compromise with the Republicans and actually moderate their behavior. They can’t. Ask John Murtha. America has never had an extremist party with this much power.

The modern Republicans are the greatest danger the American Republic has faced since the Southern States rebelled in 1860. The only way to save America will be to remove the Republicans from government. They must be removed from all aspects of government at every level. They are more dangerous to America than the Communists ever were.
