A Difference That Makes no Difference

Once again L. Neil Smith tackles explaining how the Democratic and Republican Parties are no different under the skin.

Like the biblical parable, he can see the splinter in the eye of his enemy but miss the beam in his own. After all the academic hair-splitting is done, the Democratic and Republican parties are nothing more than the left and right wings of the Socialist Vulture Party.
