Gov. Jerry Brown: Republican Party like a cult

Gov. Jerry Brown: Republican Party like a cult

On CBS News’ Face the Nation Sunday morning, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) said that politics had changed a “hell of a lot” since he started his career as a public official.

“It’s more polarized, the money is more centrally collected and distributed by the two major parties, there is — particularly on the Republican side — an enforcement of discipline that’s ideological,” he explained. “And as was mentioned today in The Washington Post, it takes on the quality of a cult.”

“We’re in a much more adversarial environment,” Brown continued. “We always had it historically, but now it is ramped up several degrees, as evidenced by the filibusters and the holds on nominations. A great power can’t government itself with this kind of dysfunction.”

4. I guess I could have put it that they've been delusional for way too long.

I don't wish any of them an early death but I do wish their ideology would die out........fast!

2. "the money is more centrally collected and distributed by the two major parties"

And where is that money coming from? The system is corrupted, through and through. With out serious reform, we're just moving the deck chairs around on a sinking ship.

5. I know--what with the declarations of Undying Love, the snookering of people into supporting 1%er

politicians, the people saying that anyone outside the party ought to die, the rock-hard denialism when a candidate reverses themselves...
