Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

There is literally no greater truism about the state of American politics right now than "Anything Democrats are for, Republicans are against. Updated daily."

They have a party who has abandoned all policy initiative and simply placed themselves in opposition to anything Democrats may propose.  If Democrats proposed renaming Yellowstone Ronald Reagan Park, the Republicans would oppose it.

It's a sickness.
