The Illusion of Choice

By Douglas Kohn

Contrary to popular belief, there is no real Right Wing in America. Every single government, Democrat, or Republican, has vastly expanded the government. There is only one real difference; ways and means. The Democrats like to tax and spend, the Republicans to borrow and spend. Either way, there is more government encroachment on the economic livelihoods of Americans, especially if you are in the top 60% of earners. This is not to mention slowly conditioning Americans and others round the world to being watched 24/7.

I completely agree. With the current political landscape in America there is no Party that is truly conservative. Hopefully this changes in the near future. I do not see the Democrats ever becoming the Party of conservatism, so I hope the Republicans can re-become that Party. If not, I predict the emergence of a powerful Third Party (possibly the Libertarian Party) to come in the future.
