    American politics since the advent of the Great Depression: whenever the Republican party is in charge of the federal government they screw up the economy for everyday Americans by giving huge tax cuts for the rich, stripping regulatory functions from federal agencies, starting wars they don't bother to pay for, starving the public sector, and then blaming it all on the Democrats.

    When Democrats are successful in pointing out this multiplex of political malfeasance, Republicans scream bloody murder, and then try to divide the country with social wedge issues.

    If the American electorate in general ever learns this tried & true lesson, the Republicans will find themselves marginalized for a generation or more.
