Explain to stoopid aussie how I'm 'being played'??

But doesn't this feel like a dog and pony show? Or maybe bread and circuses?
Judging from history, it seems like each side takes turns. One side becomes the good guys and votes to uphold the constitution and our bill of rights while the other side appears to just sell out to the highest bidder. Then they switch roles and the other side then becomes the champion of freedoms while the other side rolls into the gutter for a while.
The whole time we are slowly losing our freedoms, like a frog slowly boiling in water. Has there ever been a time where the sheep have won? Where our rights and freedoms have been upheld more than they have been slowly eroded?
It just seems like deja vu, like we have been down this road many times before.

Yep and all the while people like the OP are too caught up in identity politics to realize they're being played.
