The statism of Dems and Repubs
Democrats and Republicans are not transparent or out for the benefit of the people… Will we ever see a third party rise to some form of legitimate power in the United States? They are known as the “left wing and the right wing” for a reason. The bird only has two wings, not three. There was never meant to be a third party or any other party besides the main two contesting each other. Nobody should vote anymore.
In terms of economics you can consider repubs and dems equally guilty in allowing nearly all macro and personal processes to be controlled by the state.
Conservatives will inevitably expand government and legislation along with the progression of populations and their businesses in time. The needs and interests of those various people, institutions, and contracts – if bureaucracy is not consolidated – would expand under conservative and republican leadership.
When republicans or conservatives go on about how they want “as little government intrusion as possible,” the idea sounds ludicrous. Conservatives want to do just that – conserve most of the country’s legislations and case laws allowing for more thousand-page legislations, absurd court cases and worse – bureaucracies to expand and grow.

“118.

Also operating against autonomy is the fact that technology applied in one location often affects people at other locations far away. Thus pesticide or chemical use near a creek may contaminate the water supply hundreds of miles downstream…”
