It's not even about ideology at this point.

And as much as the Tea Party types talk about smaller government, neither of the big two really want that. They'll throw the Tea Party a few bones, but overall, business will continue as usual.
Same (*)(*)(*)(*), different administration. Wall Street runs the show, and that's just the way it is.
"Chaos... isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them.
And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.
Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is."
