When you boil it all down, it’s not so much left vs right, nor liberal vs conservative, nor even Democrat vs Republican, it’s Washington vs the rest of us.
"Yes. It is the Potomac Swamp Fever that eventually grabs all of them.
With the generous compensation and ego stroking they automatically receive, they also come to realize that there are several hundred million Americans and a $20+ billion economy either working for them via taxes, or offering support commiserate to the handouts they grant, I have come to believe that few if any can survive that Potomac Swamp Fever.
I am convinced that no one in the Washington establishment wants to see the government contracted --- to get smaller. It is not in their interests even if it is to the greater good.
Unless we can control and restrain the growth of government, we are lost.
Yes exactly. It is sort of a elitist east coast style thing. We need some conservatives who can put on airs, act sort of snooty and refined and preach our message but on the surface look like a DC insider. Getting on these shows is another question. Whether it makes us puke is irrelevant. Play their game and infiltrate in a sneaky less direct way.
