    I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad-redeemer (your Divine Democrat — your Hebrew Madman) and write over his thorn-torn brow, “The true prince of Evil — the king of the Slaves!”

    You are right on the money.

    You're going over the top by reducing the possibility for changes, modification to the definition.

    I like Christie, he focused on what was important during crisis, the people that voted for him.

    Re: CPAC head: Christie "doesn't deserve" to be a Republican

    From a contemporary (1965!) review of the book:

    Searching for popular issues, these latter-day Federalists adopted the very slogans their predecessors had denounced as Jacobinical: majority rule, minority rights, rotation in office, and the primacy of agriculture. Federalists had become, not only republicans, as Jefferson recognized, but even democrats. In this obscure period and through this obscure party, Fischer declares, a fundamental change had occurred.

    No conservatives in 1828. QED

    You seem to have missed this part of the review:

    'Becoming' implies a starting state the opposite of which is the end result.

    I don't want him as president at all,

    but I do respect him doing what was necessary

    after the hurricane.

    Again from the review: "Fischer concentrates upon the period from 1800 to 1816, . . . "

    We're discussing 1828. No conservatives by then. QED
