thoughtlessuntildusk replied to your post: Is it possible, or likely, that there are conservatives that are not as crazy as the modern GOP? Or Republicans that still deserve respect- without being vile bigots? Possibly even conservatives that simply are acceptable?
Thanks for answering man! I humbly agree. What would an acceptable conservative look like? Or better yet, what are the principles a reformed american political system would be founded on?
I would be happy with a conservative who is willing to raise taxes, accepts global warming, and is fine with gays. That’s literally how bad our political system is right now.
A reformed political system is so far out of my expertise that I have no idea how to answer that. Philosophy-of-praxis may have some good ideas. (See how I kicked the ball to him?)
