Why the GOP is a cult, not a party

Washington Post - Two weeks after South Carolina’s Jim DeMint left the Senate to serve as president of the Heritage Foundation, Governor Nikki Haley has appointed Rep. Tim Scott to fill his seat.
Scott has only served one term in the House of Representatives, but he’s already made a name for himself as a rising star in the party. . .

Scott also proposed an Unborn Children’s Monument Commission. The bill would lead to the erection of a “monument on the statehouse grounds to remember all the aborted babies in South Carolina.”

Emerson once compared the complaints of the intellectual to seasickness, inducing idleness, rather than mitigation of the colossal wrongs of society, e.g. Indians, blacks, immigrants. We could add to his list, those victimized by the civil warriors. Emerson's senator, Sumner, confronted their violence, was almost killed on the senate floor, but lived to win an important victory.
