You do understand we need both: a conservative party that seeks stability and retribution; and progressive party that seeks change and redemption. Without both we condense into autocracy or dissolve into anarchy. Each party takes its turn and leads into the future. Today we seek retribution, tomorrow we seek redemption, and America succeeds only when our citizens are diligent to ensure that each player takes a turn.

So I guess I should take a minute to define what I mean by: Retribution and Redemption. Maybe not the best word choices. By retribution I mean redress, fixing what went wrong by undoing it and going back to the old way of doing things. By redemption I mean restitution, fixing what went wrong by providing future relief.
