I say keep the change:
This post really makes me want to amend the Philosophy of Government category of posts on this blog to say "Philosophy of Government (or lack thereof)." One reason this keeps happening is that most Americans lack a coherent philosophical framework and context for viewing and understanding politics, so we end up thinking we're voting for change and we just end up electing someone with the same underlying philosophical premises about government as the last guy. Politicians from the two major parties seem different and "polarized" to us, but it's just an illusion. The differences are often superficial and even contrived. Most mainstream politicians in America's two biggest parties are a lot more alike than they are different.
And a tip of my hat to Capitol Hill Blue for inspiring this post.
