Republicans and Democrats have a good thing going when it comes to increasing the size and power of government. They have the Good Cop - Bad Cop routine down pat.
Democrats play the anti-war and pro-civil liberties card when out of power, and then wage war and wipe out civil liberties while in power....just like Republicans.
Meanwhile, when Republicans are out of power, they play the "limited government" and more individual freedom card, only to out-tax, out-spend and out-regulate the Democrats when the crown is placed on their heads.
They just rinse and repeat.
Today, Senator Rand Paul was on the Liberty Report, and he gave us an update on Obamacare/Trumpcare (my emphasis):
I think something will pass. It'll be imperfect and it won't fix the problem. Two years from now insurance rates will continue to go up and we'll still have the disaster that we have in health care.
Senator Paul has summed up the Republicans since at least the time of FDR. They ranted and raved (correctly) about FDR's Fascism/Socialism, but then kept it all intact.
Since then, Americans have been programmed to have an entitlement mentality.
Jimmy Carter created the Dept. of Education (i.e., the Dept. of Indoctrination).
Ronald Reagan was going to immediately abolish it....just like Donald Trump was going to abolish Obamacare.
Reagan did no such thing, and neither will Trump.
This is the how the scam works, and with each Administration the noose gets tighter and tighter around our necks.
Shouldn't Republican voters be up in arms?
They've been scammed for the thousandth time!
Ahhh.....but they are instead very busy sticking up for Trump and defending him against the fanatical left. Who has time to pay attention to anything else? The left will keep Trump voters busy for a long time.
Meanwhile, the U.S. government expands as it always has. It makes no difference who the president happens to be.
