That’s a sad truth of, at least, American politics. In the war between Democrats vs. Republicans, both sides are the same – blame is the only game and any actual good or bad that our elected – or installed in the case of Dems – politicians do is largely and most often a secondary effect.
I tend to both sarcastically and ironically describe anything either side actually does as examples of “Trickle Down Socioeconomic in that it works, but not to great effect in the near-term
The only real, tangible, meaningful difference between Democrat and Republican politicians is who they blame and for what. The Dems blame Whites, Men, Heterosexuals, Christians, and successful, productive citizens for being such, and Republicans blame those that are drains upon- or threats to our nation, society, and culture that was created for and by those that the Dems blame for being and doing exactly that.
And, honestly, who can really blame them? The vast majority of elected politicians want to keep their jobs and the feeling of importance and power that it, along with a paycheck and normally a lot perks, it provides far more than they want to do anything or actually enact any meaningful changes. Hence, they all – or almost all – talk a great game and blame the enemy and the enemy’s constituents, but don’t do much of anything to back that blame up with actions. And why would they? Indeed, how could they do so without risking their jobs? After all, the Law of Unintended Consequences is very real in the realm of Legislation. And, even worse of elected politicians, voters in America are easier to mobilize against a candidate than for them.
So Democrats vs. Republicans? It’s pretty much all the same except who each blames and for what. And, these days, that’s just about enough for me, especially at the federal level. Then again, these days, I’m close to believing that the Constitution should have stopped with, “Congress shall enact no law.“
