Change the Political Labels

January 30, 2013 --

LPR proposes that henceforth the Republicans should be called the Passive Party and the Democrats should be called the Assertive Party.

GOP compliance explains, in LPR's view, why President Obama will not negotiate with Republicans: he has no need to. Indeed, given Republican passivity, LPR believes our Two Party System should be downgraded to a One and-a-Quarter Party System.

LPR has determined that the national Republican leadership will use passivity as a political strategy in hopes that the politics of the Obama administration will so burden the American people as to make clear that the president,as a committed leftist, pursues the "ambitious sacrifice of the many, to the aggrandizement of the few," resulting in a GOP Senate majority, as well as a House majority, in 2014. Meanwhile, this does nothing, of course to keep middle class eggs from continuing to be broken by the left for omelets.
