What if the candidate closest to representing your philosophy wasn’t in your political party? What would you do, choose principle or partisanship?
In politics it is often, if not always, a necessity to build alliances in order to achieve political goals, specifically regarding passing/repealing legislation. Without the votes nothing will happen.
One of the things I find odd is how in today’s political landscape the idea of achieving a philosophic or principled goal seems to be entirely ignored for the sake of filing in behind your chosen party. Primarily composed of Republicans and Democrats. Perhaps most find it a no-brainer, “Duh, they want to get reelected. You have to play the game to keep your job,” some may say. I agree that’s essentially what it amounts to, but what frustrates me is that our country allows it to continue.
Assigning blame is a difficult task, as Jack “The Southern Avenger” Hunter pointed out in a video log (YouTube link), we Americans have it pretty darn good. Perhaps so good that it became easy to let loose the reins of the people who wield the power of governance except on occasional superficial levels. It’s kind of like being upset with a guy who gets married and puts on a healthy “spare tire”. Sometimes it’s just what happens when life gets good, you take things for granted.
