Freethinkers’ Party?


Well, yes, I suppose that Freethinkers DO party now and then … but this piece by E.J. Dionne in the WaPo lays out pretty much what’s wrong with the restrictive tiny house of the Republicans and the Big Tent of the Democrats.  I particularly liked the last line here:

“After a masterful presidential campaign that brought together every wing of Biden’s party, our politics seemed to snap back instantly to old habits and an old rule: Republicans fight Democrats while Democrats battle each other. These contrasting behaviors reflect a simple fact: Democrats are a big-tent party, while Republicans are a closed circle. For more than a half-century, Republicans have purged dissenters and turned themselves into a rigid, radical, unified bloc — ideologically, racially, religiously. As the Republicans cast off free-thinkers, Democrats took them in.”
