Perhaps I’m just blind, but I fail to distinguish any semblance of dissimilarity between Republicans and Democrats in modern politics. On the federal level, both parties have supported foreign interventionism in Iraq and Afghanistan, massive bailouts via the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), violations of our civil liberties via the PATRIOT Act, and secretive prisons overseas such as Guantanamo Bay. And, mind you, this is under both Bush and Obama.
Damon Eris comments: “The now-standard Republican rejoinder to this argument admits that the GOP “lost its way,” but then pleads for “one more chance,” and points to the rhetorical opposition of Republicans to the Democrats’ evil agenda. The association between American voters and the major parties resembles nothing so much as a violently abusive relationship.”
