Hi, Bert,

I'll just quote Harvard professors Ziblatt and Levitsky, How Democracies Die, p. 222:

"The Republican Part has been the main driver of the chasm between the parties. Since 2008, the GOP has at times behaved like an anti system party in its obstructionism. . .

. . . partisan hostility, and extremist policy positions."

I highly recommend How Democracies Die.

It begins with the assumption that democracy is good, and concludes that antisystem party hostility, obstructionism, and extremism are bad.

*Republican Party, not Part. (Duh!)
