Chapter 4

Maybe Republicans would be better running the country and Democrats would be better at running cities and counties. If, of course, neither were corrupt, and that's never going to happen.

Democrats claim to be interested in "helping the poor people", and all of that similar balderdash they use to justify their self-serving schools and phony social agencies. But they are, after all, the ones who do schools and social agencies. If they really were what they claim to be, they'd be perfect for the on-the-ground services work. Welfare, schools, arts -- perfect.

But you can't hold together and defend a country with sentimentality. On the national level, you need people who want to protect our homes, get us fuel, and shoot the bad guys before they shoot us. You need grownups. That would be Republicans, if they could stop shoveling our money into their bank accounts and those of their rich friends for a few minutes.
