The two-headed snake, known as Republicans and Democrats, have been bamboozling Americans for a very, very long time.
Both parties are for more warfare and more welfare. Both are for the expansion of state power and destruction of liberty.
Both switch positions whenever conditions dictate. In other words, Democrats are usually antiwar when out of power, but pro-war when in power. Republicans are for limited government when out of power, but for massive government when in power.
The beauty is that their supporters always accept the switch. There were anti-war rallies when W. was president, but total silence when Obama bombed 7 nations.
There were 68 votes for the abolition of Obamacare when it was certain to be vetoed, but now with Republicans controlling Congress and the Presidency, the monster stays!
This is a nefarious system for the destruction of freedom. It's voted for and accepted every step of the way. Every ratchet up in state power is met with complete silence.
Here is the great Henry Hazlitt back on Jan. 24, 1955:
"The New Deal policies now adopted by Mr. Eisenhower are so numerous, in fact, that it is easier to point to exceptions...
That was 62 years ago.
It could have been written today!
One party (either one) increases state power. The other poses as opposition, gets elected, and then does nothing about it.
Eisenhower kept the fascist New Deal.
Reagan kept the Dept. of Education that he was going to close.
Trump is keeping Obamacare.
Each time, a few voters are surprised and disgusted, but the vast majority bite their tongues and hope for the next election.
It's one snake....with two-heads.
The snake wants every last drop of liberty that we have left.
