Dear Mr. Lowry,
Let me suggest a sixth reason not to despair:
The ObamaCare bill – shortly to become law – has reeducated a lot of conservatives, libertarians, “none of the aboves”, and less-than committed Republicans about the realities of America’s two party system. If for whatever reasons – be they good, sincere, bad, insincere, or whatever – one may have looked outside of the Republican Party for political redemption, it is now brought home that we either support and work through the mechanism of the Republican Party, or we get what we got last night. . .
