party of intolerance

When I read this opinion piece by Paul Krugman, I kept thinking about how other governments in history became so racist and corrupt that horrific actions became standard policy, if you know what I mean. Krugman says it best at the end of the article that the GOP has become the "party of intolerance."

I truly hope the real Americans take back our country tomorrow.

I guess we got a taste of what Krugman is talking about with Prop 8. Very disheartening.

The fight has just begun!!! This could really change history if we can take it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court!

In retrospect now, I totally agree with the main point Krugman is making. Ideologues often conclude that any failure is due to an imperfect application of the principles they adhere to. Or, to some foe or "other" that must be vanquished. The solution: An increasingly strict application of the ideology. This leads in some cases wider gaps between thought and reality. In the real world, this rarely means the ideology becomes so disconnected that it eventually dies. Could we be so lucky? Probably not in our lifetimes...but I can hope...

Hope is the thing with feathers.
