Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

This will end in bloodshed.  The left cannot achieve total victory unless they exterminate all opposition.

I wish these numbskulls will go after Islam, but they are cowards.
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

I pray you are wrong.

That said, I believe America faces two fundamentally incompatible visions of the proper role of government in society. One such vision relies upon the philosophical base flowing in time from Aristotle, to Edmund Burke and John Locke, to Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, to Michael Oakeshott to Russell Kirk and William Buckley and Ronald Reagan. This is the basis of modern conservatism, which recognizes universally inalienable human liberty as a precondition to ordered society.

The other flows in time from Plato to Jean-Jacques Rousseau to John Stuart Mill to Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels to John Dewey and Woodrow Wilson, to Eugene Debs and Herbert Marcuse, to Tom Hayden and Bill Ayers.  Theirs is the philosophy of collectivism, of the primacy of the state and the sublimation of human freedom and property to the satisfaction of need and want. 

I have left out many contributors on both sides in order to provide a rough timeline of the development of both competing visions. The competition is, at long last coming to a head in our own country. One side will win; both cannot. Conservatives find themselves at a disadvantage, both culturally and politically, owing to the Progressive project's 100-year effort to dominate America's social and government institutions, which they now do. But they are hardly powerless, except for the failure to effectively control at least one of America's two major political parties. Absent that development, and given the triumph of the Leftist vision everywhere else on the globe, it is hard to see how they might triumph in the near term.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

The left may win by way of creeping progressivism -- infiltration into the culture, the schools, the government (a close examination of employees of the federal government will show that an ever-larger share is composed of folks of non-Euro heritage). And they actively will use without qualms the raw physical power of government, both of the uniformed military and the ever-larger-growing segment of "civilian agency" paramilitary police to subjugate ordinary Americans. Ultimately -- be it by circumstantial development or by intentional design -- the socialist/police state will grow. As it's growing right now.

Against this, there's only one way for "the folks" of the red states to win. I doubt it can be peaceful, because the left will never accede to The Right in peaceful good-faith agreement. They are treacherous and deceitful to the end.

Remember what Thomas Jefferson said about "the tree", Andy -- it's as true today as back then. Perhaps more true today, than ever before.

We're approaching a time similar to where we were back around 1856.
The South -- whether or not you ascribe to their cause and reasons -- knew what they had to do. Of course, they weren't successful in their efforts -- but at least, they tried.

What the "conservative side" of America faces today is a choice no different.
With consequences, no different.

Conservative, traditional (and Euro) Americans must decide to either:
1. Submit, or
2. Resist, by force of arms if need be.

I don't see any other possible way out of this.
I could be wrong.

Yes, they are. Cowards and hypocrites.
