Like an all-pro cornerback, George Neumayr is always around the ball. His "Enlightened Bribery" is an articulate antidote to the cowardly calls for the right to compromise and moderate.
For the present and the foreseeable future, the bourgeoisie, patriots, productive sorts, and conservatives are stuck with a watery Republican Party as a political vehicle to advance their causes and way of life. Republican carping about Mitt Romney's accusations of Democrat bribery during the most recent election again underlines that party's cowardliness and incompetence. Of course Barack Obama bought votes with boodle. And of course Republicans can't compete by trying to do the same.
"Our liberals can beat their liberals" is not a winning battle cry for Republicans. Either Republicans can embrace and articulate their principles to a majority of voters, or they can climb into the wagon with the rest of the slackers and America will become a very big Belgium (on the bright side, this would put an end to our illegal immigration problem).
