There are two ways to go about this. One is the quick, frequently violent, and bloody way which has as its advantage that it's frequently over for better or worse fairly quickly. You can tell its over when all the principals on one side are dead. If that list didn't include you, then you won.
The other way is the "velvet" type which has the advantage of not being so violent and the disadvantage of sometimes taking an inordinately long time. You can tell when this one's over when all the principals on one side are dead, usually of old age. Hopefully this will happen before you pass on of similar causes. It also leaves open the question of who actually won.
Better late than never I guess, it looks like the Tea Party wing is making progress after all with Speaker Boehner's resignation announcement.
