Each side of the political spectrum accuses the other of being hypocritical. And they are correct. The hypocrisy of the left is that it will never acknowledge that their attempts to fix things, to solve problems for the American people are typically so loaded with negative consequences that the solutions are far worse than the disease. The hypocrisy of the right is that they claim to be the party that is faithful to the philosophy of the Declaration of Independence and to the laws of the Constitution, but then, in the spirit of "compromise", they go along with virtually everything the leftists propose.
Is one hypocrisy worse than the other? Practically?, no, since both leave us in the same unpleasant spot--saddled with the expense and the moral hazard of a behemoth government incessantly penetrating deeper and deeper into our daily lives. The only good thing that can be said is that at least one side has the right ideas (I will leave you, gentle reader, to figure out which side I am referring to), and they might yet have the favorable circumstances and the gumption to fight for them.
