Do Democrats and Republicans represent differing views on the role of government?

With Mississippi’s 2014 Primary Elections on June 3rd, consider a quote from one of President Bill Clinton’s mentors.  Carroll Quigley wrote the following in his 1966 book Tragedy and Hope:

The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two Congressional parties more national and international.  The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers.  Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.  The policies that are vital and necessary for America are no longer subjects of significant disagreement, but are disputable only in details of procedure, priority, or method. . .  Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.

Is your candidate really different or just a little more or less of what is already in elected office?  Is that what you want?  Our country must to return to the principles that made our country the greatest on the earth.  We need revival. . . in the church house AND in the state house.  Make your vote count!
