Are Constitutional Conservatives Really The Boogeyman?

by Brandon Smith, Alt-Market:

Power, or perceived power, is a viciously addictive narcotic. It doesn’t matter what political or philosophical background a person hails from, very few have the self discipline or the self awareness necessary to relinquish the trappings of power once they have tasted it. This truth applies to conservatives as much as it applies to liberals.

I began my early political life as a Democrat, and until I came to understand the nature of the false left right paradigm in 2004, my view of the negative within government was slanted entirely against the GOP. When a finally grasped the fantasy of the two party process, I did not let go of my criticisms of the Republican hierarchy as much as accept the fact that the same criticisms applied to the Democrats as well. They are, ultimately, the same entity with the same exact ideological goals hidden by cosmetic differences in shallow rhetoric. I have no interest whatsoever in perpetuating the false left/right paradigm, or giving undue credit to the GOP.

    This is a very insightful piece. There’s a lot of good truth here. I was recently talking/debating with a family member about things in general and it was shocking to me how that person almost completely defined herself in terms of opposition to the boogeyman of her cartoonish perception of “the right”. Almost nothing she supported was because that idea works it was all supported because those other people would be against it. She received my broaching of the idea of a political false dichotomy like I was asking her to imagine water that was not wet or air that was solid. And this was an intelligent woman but hopelessly caught up in a fake confrontation.
