We should not be satisfied hoping that one day the political 'pendulum' will swing to the right, since this is not an acceptable solution.
When progressives are in power, they create new laws and taxes that advance their socialistic cause, whereas when conservatives are in power, they attempt to repeal those new intrusions, but seldom are totally successful. The result is that over time, the country becomes more and more socialist.
America in the 20th century is the perfect example, particularly the Roosevelt and Johnson years.
If all we can hope for is a perpetual pendulum between socialist governments under Democrats followed by temporary breaks to their endless push during Republican governments, then we are screwed.
