What is the uniparty? Pundits decry the use of the term, listing all the areas the parties officially disagree, but, explains Jordan Schactel, the uniparty’s main focus of agreement is on expanding its own power. He writes at The Dossier:
In the aftermath of the House Speaker chaos that’s unfolded this week, we’re seeing lots of popular commentators, journalists, pundits, think tankers, and the like balking at the idea that America is increasingly controlled by a single uniparty system.
It’s too simplistic and simply not true to state that the entire red hat blue hat system is captured, they say.
Respectfully, they are entertaining a massive delusion.
And I’ll show you how.
Ryan Saavedra of The Daily Wire, I writer who I have nothing but respect for, put together a long list of issues where Red Hats and Blue Hats supposedly have fierce disagreements.
The best steel man for this roster of policy items comes from the abortion category, where there is truly a divide, and other social issues where the two camps are firmly divided, at least publicly.
However, the Uniparty rears its ugly head most prominently when it comes to seeking, maintaining, and expanding its power. Republicans and Democrats spar within the boundaries of some issues and put on a nice kayfabe performance from time to time. But when it comes to staying in charge and peddling influence, they move in lockstep.
First and foremost, America is $33 trillion in debt, and the leadership of both parties has unanimously supported massive trillion dollar deficit budgets after massive trillion dollar deficit budgets. Republican leadership often pretends to care about the debt, but never actually follows through with resisting the massive expansion of government.
As Covid hysteria and the global financial crisis of 2007-2008 proved, when push comes to shove, both parties support massive stimulus and money printing. Yes, there is a small minority of the GOP that seeks fiscal discipline, but the people in charge are always pushing for more corporate bailouts in the event of a naturally occurring or manufactured emergency.
