Everything but Nancy Pelosi splashing topless in the Florida surf…Thank God for large favors.
I am more than happy to concede that in both parties public office attracts an inordinate percentage of low lives and sociopaths. The difference is progressives believe in the perfectibility of man through legislation conjured and concocted by those we elevate to high office. Hence a desire to give them more money and power, so our betters can make the world more perfect.
Conservatives/libertarians understand that too many humans — most of us; hell, all of us — are far too capable of, and often motivated by, lust, avarice, self-aggrandizement and power. And political office doesn’t change that, not even among our very best and brightest. So, we would reduce their power and the means (taxes) to use it.
