Thought this was kind of funny, though I wouldn't say partisan as it states pretty well "In the last 140 years, the Republican and Democratic parties have switched sides several times, with one being conservative and the other being liberal."

Sadly also pretty right. If you want to see the policies in action take a gander at India or China where you see more policies like this in action on a daily basis.

As with anything, extremes are too far and it's not a yes or no equation. Unlike what some rather fun to watch pundits like to scream that the only way to be a real free American is to do without any and all liberal "mental illness"

Joe Liberal wins the lottery and throws a huge part for his family, friends
and his neighborhood.

Joe Conservative wins the lottery and whines about the taxes he has to pay.

You can sue big business but you hardly can sue government, big or small.
