Agree completely, especially when it comes to the GOP.

Dem ideas have immediately popular appeal, because they involve giving out candy and ice cream to the public. Despite this, they constantly resort to fearmongering, demagoguery, policy bribery, and subterfuge in order to win votes.

The GOP ideas have less popular appeal, because they promote sound economic management (how successful they are at it is highly debatable) and that usually involves taking candy and ice cream AWAY from the public. So, it is even MORE important that they lay out the rational case for their policies; yet like the Dems, they constantly resort to fearmongering, demagoguery, policy bribery, and subterfuge in order to win votes.
