American politics today is like car culture in the 1950s

I made a comparison then to American car culture in the late 1950s and early 1960s when most everyone was either a Ford guy or a Chevy guy. And today, the Democrats and Republicans, nostalgically reaching back to old families instead of looking forward, continue to bring the same monoculture to politics.

Mr. Johnson in no way suggests this moribund political culture. He instead brings the shock of the new just as the exotic Volvo Amazon did when it first arrived on our streets in New England in the early Sixties, bringing in its wake a full bore cultural revolution. And as others have said, Mr. Johnson is cool.

Gary Johnson’s consistency on the issues highlights the true inconsistency in American politics: the Dems and GOP.
