Is disagreement really a sign of weakness?

Kevin McCarthy has won the GOP House chair despite 20 Republicans refusing to endorse him without certain concessions from him. I couldn't help but notice how the collectivist mainstream media (MSM) treated the whole debate.

The January 8th Detroit Free Press carried an opinion piece by USA Today writer Connie Schultz calling the event a "circus" that "makes America look weak." On the TV media I heard others call it a fiasco, a joke and so on.

I just want to say that there was no "circus" in the German NAZI party, or in the Russian Soviet Communist Party. No disarray in Mao's Chinese Communist party nor in Pol Pot's Cambodian killing fields.

It's eye opening to see what today's MSM considers strength: unquestioning obedience/loyalty to the party where dissent/disagreement are not allowed. The above dictatorships I mentioned certainly believed in party unity.

But a party in a semi free nation can be united on certain principles yet disagree on a particular implementation of those principles. I think that's where the GOP is today. The Democrats though are all in on a party platform that want's to provide everyone with their daily bread-by the force of a loving caring government, something that has never been or will be.
