Arthur Brooks took to the New York Times today to write what many mainstream Americans feel: Party politics is bad for the country and it's time for real leaders to step up and give us "the competition of ideas we deserve."
From his column:
More trait-trespassing politicians would give all citizens the competition of ideas we deserve. Because of the lack of overlapping values between the parties today, most people have effectively one choice when it comes time to vote. Often, we just hold our noses and pull the lever. That makes politics about as edifying as shopping at a Soviet-era supermarket. Wouldn’t we all like some choice?
