An intersting quote I found, if you replace 'Republican' with Conservative and 'Democrat' with Labour, it could be talking about England!
The Republican party is thought to be the party of free enterprise, small government, and family values. It is actually the party of state capitalism.
The Democratic Party is thought to be the party of the common people. It is actually the party of international finance and elitist social engineering.
Federal aid is thought to have improved public education. It has actually made it worse.
Federal expenditures on medical care are thought to have made it more available. They have actually only made it more expensive.
The mass media are thought to be vigilant watchdogs of government abuse. They are actually lackeys of power.
College professors are thought to exemplify bold and independent thinking. Actually, aside from the productive 5 percent, they are timid, conformist, and unoriginal.
Federal judges are thought to be steeped in the wisdom of the Constitution. They actually know less than nothing about the real American Founding.
It is widely believed that, as stated in a recent Congressional resolution, American slavery was among the most brutal systems of servitude in history. Actually it was among the mildest.
It is widely believed that any symptoms of social dysfunction in the black community are a result of slavery. Actually, the problems are worse the farther they are from the time and place of slavery.
Down with the Commons, restore the House of Lords!
