So, At This Point, What Difference Do They Make?

Much apropos our last post, the inimitable Mark Steyn utters the following:

In contrast to the ebb and flow of eternally shifting multiparty systems, America has a rigid, inflexible two-party choice:

One party is supposed to be the party of big government, the other the party of small government. When the Big Government Party is in power, the government gets bigger, and, when the Small Government Party is in power, the government gets bigger.

One party is supposed to be the party of social liberalism, the other the party of social conservatism. When the Socially Liberal Party is in power, the country gets more liberal, and, when the Socially Conservative Party is in power, the country gets more liberal.

One party is supposed to be the party of foreign-policy doves, the other the party of foreign-policy hawks. When the doves are in power, America loses wars, and, when the hawks are in power, America loses wars.

We really wish we had the unfailing knack for summing up things that Mark has, because there really isn’t much to add.

So there you have it, GOPe Quislings. If you’re really completely bewildered as to why we hate you so much and why we’re done paying even the slightest attention to you, read the above quote.

It really does say it all.

Thatisall.

Steyn knows perfectly well that we don’t have a rigid two party system, we have a rigid single party system. That party is the Government party. /sarc
