This is almost exactly what happened in 1856 when moderate dems and Whigs merged as the republican party.  The radical pro-slavery majority of democrats (same as today, just in different clothing) would not accept compromise (just like today), divided the country (just like is happening today), and were willing to destroy the Constitution (just like today) to keep their power intact.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Yours is the most historically accurate and completely cogent post I've read on these pages in quite a long time!

Not to be confused with "Democrat centerfolds." Apologies for any nightmares I might have caused with that.  :smokin:

I almost didn't click on this thread because I thought that's what it was!

[[ Democrat Center Folds.. ]]

There hasn't been much of a "center" to the 'rats for decades.

Finally they've all pulled off the camouflage to reveal the red undergarments beneath...

I clicked on the topic with a certain amount of trepidation.  There are a few cute democrats, but their superstars are usually b*tt ugly.  I'm glad to see this was about the center of the party folding, and not about the party centerfolds!
