Ending the Hidden Agenda Behind Tax Cuts by Joe Brewer
Liberals/progressives and conservatives are basically two statist peas in the pod of authoritarian sociopathy
What is one thing that government (aka a legalized coercive monopoly) does better than any business in the marketplace? Perhaps public relations!

You don't need representation: You represent yourself every day via the money you make, save, and spend
Presidents merely posture and pretend to have authority
