The Last Word


The Last Word

"Right now, politicians have the power to suddenly decide to tax us all at 100% and then spend the money replacing all of our roads with a high-speed rail system. What keeps them from doing that? Common sense? Cme on, look at the morons we have in government — Congress is filled with idiots who couldn’t run a lemonade stand and who have grand visions to transform the nation. No, the only thing stopping them is that they’re divided into two parties who viscerally hate each other. If they ever got along, a big new government overreach like the Patriot Act or a giant boondoggle like Obamacare would be passed every couple weeks. … We American citizens have nothing protecting us — except the two-party system. Playing half the government against the other half is the only thing keeping its power in check. … If we ever see the parties start to get along, we have to come up with some completely made-up issue to keep them fighting, like climate change. … So right now we should hope for headlines about a bipartisan agreement that was broken up when the senators started to bite each other. Then we’ll know our country is safe." –columnist Frank J. Fleming
