Every Republican Is Always Just One Personal Catastrophe Away From Becoming A Hypocrite
If you thought I was going to say Republicans are always just one personal catastrophe away from becoming Democrats, that's probably because you are not a Republican and so think everybody, even Republicans, actually learn from experience. But, of course, few people with either basic decency or common sense have to actually experience personal catastrophe to grasp the indispensability of good government to a sustainable, prosperous society with liberty and justice for all, and such people rarely become Republicans these days in the first place, unless, I suppose, they have the misfortune of a profoundly insulated or ignorant upbringing.
