I see a number of posts here which illustrate why the republican party has become ever more extremist. There is no party in America for a moderate conservative. Those whom Teddy Roosevelt would deem 'reactionary' have taken the once honorable term 'conservative', adorned themselves with it, and turned it into a term meaning right wing radical rather than 'conservative' in it's dictionary sense. Both political parties in the US are dysfunctional. We, as well as Israel, have a real shortage of competent political leaders.
