Partisanship has always been with us. I'm not entirely convinced that it's been just Republican vs. Democrat. I think the forces of big government
have been gathering steam for quite some time. I'd be willing to say that the Republicans have forever lost their small government preference. From
now on, it's all about the centralizing of power and who controls it.
It's true that rhere was once a time when the two major parties were evenly matched. Even now, the idealist in me wishes for such a thing to happen
again. I don't think it will, ut I am willing to make the admission. What we see as partisanship today is actually something far more sinister.
It's the mother of all power struggles being played out right in front of us.
