That is the illusion.
Not that they're the same, but that they're equal... equally bad.
We're left not with a choice between the best, but a choice between lesser evils.
The choice, is the actual illusion.
I get a bit bothered by people whom pop into threads and suggest that the right and left in politics is an illusion, there is no difference, etc etc etc.

I could agree with that, but issue for issue there are differences. It gets quite annoying when you are discussing a specific issue where the lines are clear and someone comes in suggesting there is no difference...when there clearly is.
Their differences, in my opinion are more cosmetic. They are certainly differences, you are right; but I see them as more a color of my armband type of difference.

So the important issue of life and death (abortion) holds only the significance of an "armband" to you???
I think you proved the OP's point.
That is beyond ridiculous to me.
