Patricia McCarthy asserts that “too many Republicans are as useless as Democrats.” Conservatives know this is true. America is overwhelmed with critical political issues that need serious people to address them, but the probability that many of our Republican representatives will do anything approaches zero. The big question is why our Republican leadership is so useless and what we can do to fix it.
Weak Republicans were always there, quietly undermining a seriously conservative agenda. They have worked with Democrats for a long time, figuratively crossing aisles and giving Democrats bipartisan cover for the things they do. Democrats used to do the same. The system was designed so that compromises would create moderation. It worked when neither party was out to bankrupt the government. Today, though, Democrats are determined to do so, which should not be a conservative goal—but Republicans keep crossing the aisle, making them not just useless but complicit.
