"Karl Rove’s Master Plan: A One-Party America," for BuzzFlash.com by James Moore, Co-Author of "Bush's Brain"

While everyone analyzes and complains about his tactics, Karl Rove has his eyes on a grand strategy.

The Swift Boat Veterans for Lies is but a tiny piece of a schematic Rove has been carrying in his head since his salad days in Texas. Bush’s Brain will die happy the day he achieves his two greatest goals. The first of these is to turn the U.S. into what is fundamentally a one-party system. Secondly, he wants the federal government to have so little money that it can do nothing to get in the way of business interests; nor will it be able to sustain any kind of socially progressive assistance for disadvantaged Americans.

His desire to destroy the Democratic Party is not about fair play politics. Rove sees a country where there is only symbolic opposition and democracy is more of a "Potemkin Village" show than an actually tallying of votes and a discussion of issues. He and the Republicans believe they know what is best for America. They do not consider ideas from the left or the center. Those people are simply wrong to them.

Of course, the irony is lost on Rove and his henchmen that a one-party nation, at the worst, turns us into something akin to a communist country or, as a minimum, the pseudo-democracy maintained for decades by Mexico.

But Karl doesn’t care. America is not important. Political victory is what matters, the control of power, and the economy. This isn’t conspiracy theory nonsense. He’s taking the steps. And they are working. During his interview with Brit Hume on Fox News last week, the network played a video clip of an interview with me and I said, “I truly believe that the policy and politics of Karl Rove are a threat to our republic.” The senior presidential advisor dismissed me as “a far left-winger who has been drinking too much swamp water.” Rove obviously doesn’t realize that 99 percent of America is to the left of him politically and the remaining one percent is likely holed up in a compound in Montana.
