Yes..., they do.
We played the lesser of two evils so long, we got a lot of it on both sides.
The result of which we complain about daily. I am not sure how so many here never put the two together, because one led directly to, and is responsible for the other.
I will never understand how anyone gets to the place in their minds that in order to fix the greater evil, you add more lesser evils when all the lesser evils created the greater to begin with. The only thing more lesser evil leads to is Cuthulu since it reinforces the evil already there. AKA Greatest evil.
