There was a while there that I thought the Republican party could be destroyed. And if the pendulum had swung just a little bit further, I think it might have happened. But they seem to have weathered the storm, and the current system will continue for the foreseeable future.

There was a while there that I wanted the Republican party to be destroyed, for its sins against Iraq, Afghanistan, and America. But if you want that, then what do you say about the sins of the Democratic Party in the era of slavery? If any political party in American history ever deserved to be destroyed, it was the Democrats of 1860, the party I support today.

And probably all European settlers of America deserve to be destroyed for what happened to the Native Americans.

But since I don’t want that, maybe forgiveness has some virtues.
