    Exactly, I've always thought it as a tug-of-war with no decisive winners.

    Pure capitalism is bad, pure socialism is bad. A mix of the two is the best.

    God no! If there were no people on the opposite side of the spectrum from me, I'd had no one to argue with! Thus I'd have nothing to do all day

    OT: anybody know why I can no longer see who voted, despite the fact the poll was set up so that I could see the results?

    Deep down, we all would.

    This question is similar to asking:

    "If you could control time and space, would you steal money from casino vaults, etc?"

    Of course on here we'd say no. But deep down, Hell yes we would, with style.

    I think that it should be obvious too much of anything is bad...especially in politics. We have two factions who literally have control over our lives. Given the power available to those in the current system. I don't think that there should be any question about one party or political philosophy possessing all of the power. What a nightmare we see, historically and in the present those nations who are held captive by dictators and theocracies.

    But the hard core reality is...I genuinely believe to the core of my being that a statistically significant number of people right here in good old America, despite them seeing the devastation caused by despotic systems in other countries...STILL would reduce our government control over to a single party/ideology.

    Ignorance is the most dangerous social enemy known to human kind. Just because we are in the 21st century...we are still at risk of being a nation ruled by people put in office by people who are ignorant.

    "It appears that the U.S. government no longer fears its citizens. We are becoming more and more powerless to effect real change in our system of government. We are fighting each other while supporting increasingly aggressive, corrupt political parties and an ever growing government.

    As per the OP... no.

    But there have been times I've thought we'd all be a lot happier if we split the USA into two autonomous halves, and let the leftists have one and the righties have the other. Wait a hundred years and see whose policies are most effective....

    Why should the USA government fear the citizens? The citizens have shown they are willing to be bought off.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
