Before I offer my One-Liner Wednesday quote for today, I need to provide a little context. In the most recent issue of The Week magazine, Editor-in-Chief William Falk wrote:
America needs two viable, sane political parties. Parties provide voters with a coherent choice of governing philosophies, and galvanize people to unite behind an agenda and candidates … When parties become enamored with unpopular and foolish ideas, they can die: The Federalists, the Whigs, and the Know Nothings all once flourished and then perished.
Falk ended his editorial with this line:
“The Republican Party can be revived, but it must first turn back from the Know Nothing path it’s on now, which leads to Knowhere.”
