Good cop/ bad cop -- the system sucks.

Yes, I'm sure Rand has more "positives" going for him than his opponent does. On economic issues, at least, he seems to take after his dad. But all I'm seeing is a new twist on the old good-cop, bad-cop routine, where the Republicans give lip service to economic freedoms while trashing civil liberties, and the Democruds trash economic freedoms while giving lip service to civil liberties. And NEITHER party actually increases our liberties in any meaningful way -- ever. As Larken Rose puts it in his book THE IRON WEB, voting only allows you to say which of two slave-masters you'd rather be owned by.
