The Office of the President of the United States has been held by a Republican for twenty of the last thirty years, with no significant accomplishments. For hypocritical Republican conservatives, twenty years was not enough to reform health care, immigration, education, and defense or to regulate the financial system and bring down the national debt. The American problem is real, and there are no quick fixes.
On the whole, the problem is not a Republican or Democratic problem; it is an American problem. Every Democratic or Republican idea is not necessarily bad. The great conservative Republican lie is that only one party has the solution to America’s problem. But, America has never operated as a one-party state. The ideas of both parties make sense and nonsense at the same time.
