Okay, I have already been called a nut so what do I have to lose, right?
Follow me on this one. I just was thinking, suppose the right is nervous that the long stranglehold they have had on politics is coming to an end. The middle class and poor of America have wised up and they realize that the extreme right is waging war on America that they know. They realize that there is a group of people who 1.) are commmitted to a militaristic, oligarchical America, one that takes from the poor and gives to them, i.e. (the rich) and one that is basically dishonest and doesn't care. and 2.) Has no qualms about doing ANYTHING to stay in power, even really really terrible things.
These are the people who have been in power for a long time, and even when they have been out of power (as during Bill Clintons Presidency) they are always there, still waging war and holding other kinds of power.
Well, the GOP 'brand' that many have associated with this movement has now been outed by the Bush fiasco as a taker and not a giver, as far as ordinary Americans are complained, and so they must feel that its time to change their skin.
How can they do this? Easy. The party name, like 'GOP' we see are front. Its for the outsiders. The insiders know this. They have a different organization. Their group has never been a party in a democracy. Its an antidemocratic idea and as such, it would repulse most Americans. But they have always been thre. Their ideas are a nebulous thing to outsiders who larely dont understand their goals. (Oligarchy, elitism, stability, GROWTH)
(This 'party' may also be international. Crossing national boundaries.) But the members of the group know each other when they see each other. they may even have a formal, but secret structure. Many people like, for example, Joe Lieberman and Obama, are members of that confederacy, just as the various GOP-branded members are.
The GOP party that we see, in other words, is just a FRONT ORGANIZATION to divert attention from the real leaders. Other parties might also be fronts.
The real leaders probably AVOID the limelight and they would never run for President, although they might serve as Vice President in a pinch.
