7. It's been done. The War to End All Wars.
It worked about as well as the Wars on Drugs, Terror, Poverty.

But the OP was about a War on Republicans. Too late, the Republicans are waging a War on Democrats. 41 Senators are standing at the Gates of Thermopolae, holding off 59 Democrats with the threat of filibuster. And we're as puzzled as the Persians.
