The State of the GOP (The Jelly-Publicans)?

Ron Paul has really hit the nail on the head with this commentary.

In short, the Republicans have recently had control of the Presidency, House, and Senate, and they have managed to blow it. Paul correctly calls the Republican congress to task for their activities.

In essence, they have been the veritable jellyfish. They've stood back and watched while Bush/Rove demanded support for unconstitutional wars, attacked civil liberties at home, and put forward an economic policy based on more spending, debt, deficits, and inflation.

He further comments that "After eight years of perpetual (and unnecessary and unconstitutional) war, persistent and expanded attacks on our privacy, runaway deficits, and now nationalization of the financial system, Republicans are going to have a tough time regaining the confidence of the American people".

Due to the actions of BOTH the Republicans and the Democrats, America is, as Ron Paul states marching towards a powerful dictorial state.

I think many Americans can relate to the words of John Perry Barlow: "So I'm just waiting until one party or the other actually gets a moral compass and a backbone".
