Democrats and Republicans

The two parties have competing visions for how the government ought to run, but they both lead to the same result.

The Democrats, waving and whooping with the pedal floored, were driving the Car of State toward the Cliff of National Disaster, betting the Cliff would chicken out and swerve at the last minute.

The Republicans, in response to pressure from the Tea Party, took control. Fastening the seat belt, they put both hands on the wheel, and are soberly accelerating toward the cliff more slowly than the Democrats, knowing perfectly well they’re going over the side.

Given that choice, why not let a Democrat drive?

  1. I don’t claim to know anything about politics, but it seems to me that no one wants to cut spending in Washington because it won’t make a big enough difference. However, if you don’t cut the spending, it won’t make any difference at all. When making a budget, you have to consider cutting a couple dollars here and a couple dollars there. Eventually, and over time, it will add up. Otherwise we’re just going to keep spending more than we have.

    1. “Otherwise we’re just going to keep spending more than we have.”

      I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what’s going to happen.

  2. Idiocracy. It’s a-comin’ because we aren’t going to have a next generation that has any sense. And it won’t nearly as funny to live in it is it was to watch the movie.

    1. I was going to link a video from Occupy Wall Street, with the hand signals and the human microphone, but they were all too annoying.
