One Truth is all things Change. Except the callow arguments the Tex and defiant waco keep repeating, repeating, repeating.Bernard, also like to point out......this isn't the old republican party,....nor is this the old democratic party.Seems to me, they've both changed.
Bernard doesn't understand that both parties are part of this mendacity, he chooses to think that the dems are all light and sugar}
Mendacity in politics is an argumentative point. That both parties make use of it is to expected and required. It is one of the natures of the beast of politicians. How I evaluate our political parties is not by some blind allegiance. Did that once, as a republican, which exposed to me the errors of blind alliances to any party or individual. I base my support to those that I perceive to be the greater good for our humanity.
Distributions of our laborers productivity is one example of how I measure the parties or our leadership. Those advocating Austerity policies raises a red flag . Those that advocate total equality, raise a red flag. Liberal International Free Trade Markets will be the future. Responsible well regulated capitalism will be a major component. It will NOT be the only factor that will be the eventual unified globalization of our humanities.
Observing both parties for the past 80 years on these measures and responsibilities exposes as to which party here in the USA has been the most beneficial to those measurements. Sponsoring a mature path to our equality and inequality. Presently republican party has accelerated to far to inequality producing insecurity. Here and abroad. That is not to say ALL republicans. There are some that retain the vintages of the Grand Old Party. Some I still have voted for.
Now the statisticians at Pedro Santa Clara and Rosen Valknaov have evaluated the two parties on various factors for leadership for the past 80 years a couple of years ago Each president is evaluated and reduced to the numbers. Republicans did not fair well for the most part. Especially in the last 40 years. I have a book in my library on that subject. If your interested. Good reading. I was surprised, as were the statisticians were, in what they discovered. Think of it, as a who done it, murder mystery novel . Leave your emotions back on the dock. Sail out into the light crystal clear blue oceans of reality.
Here is a thought; Examine a well regulated capitalist system and compare it to ours. World Bank does it. Start with Sweden, UK, France and most Scandinavian countries.IF memory serves me, the World Bank rates us 37th in being a well regulated capitalist system
