Aimed at US politics, but this quote from the ever excellent PJ O’Rourke is my “quote of the day”.
The ditch carp of democracy
The Left is the party of government activism – the party that says government can make you richer, smarter, slimmer, taller, and take a dozen strokes off your golf game.
The Right is the party that says government doesn’t work. And then they get elected and prove it.
