I think it was Barry Goldwater who came up with the phrase, "politics is social warfare".
Some claim he invented the concept. But in a nation that was born in a revolution and then went to war with itself, I doubt that.

In as much as American politics have joined the list of wars that America is engaged in, what is the envisaged outcomes for the two sides?
What are the goals?
What are acceptable losses?
Or is it "victory at any cost, as we fight for principals principles not mere social power?"

edit: principals hmmm - goes deep that spelling error

it's a war Liberals win by simply keeping fighting - because in a 100 or so years time all the conservatives become 'them'.

What do you consider acceptable losses?

One loss that has become apparent recently is the loss of many shared understandings of the meanings of words and phrases between liberals and conservatives..

A loss that has been apparent for many years now is the loss of insistence by the citizenship that at least a facade of honesty, decency and egalitarian values be maintained.

Are these corrosions of society acceptable to you?
Are further corrosions of society acceptable to you?

I'm all about the ends justifying the means. I want a liberal Nixon. Crush our enemies to dust. Break into their headquarters. A Clinton that ACTUALLY murdered 46 people. A leader like Shi Huangdi, who buried 460 writers alive. Writers of Breitbart, InfoWars, right-wing radio. Buried metaphorically. Not metaphorically, just as good.
