What keeps me up at night

I can dismiss much of this article from Time, "How The Right Went Wrong." One sentence stings though, because it has a ring of truth to it: "They are handcuffed to a political party that looks unsettlingly like the Democrats did in the 1980s, one that is more a collection of interest groups than ideas, recognizable more by its campaign tactics than its philosophy."
We have to have ideas. We have to ignore the easy impulse to think of ourselves as a collection of interest groups. That is not us--that is them. I hope.
