The Republicans failed on health care, but now they are offering a new plan for tax and spending cuts, with a promise of smaller government.
But the GOP, with few exceptions, seems about as credible as the Democrats and their flawed, small-business killer, Obamacare. Many of the Democrats are people who subscribe to a socialism without doctrines; a kind of backdoor collectivism.

A couple of weeks ago, John O’Sullivan was confidently writing about the British Conservative Party finally getting it all together, and uniting the three strands of Toryism — the economic freedom and enterprise of Thatcher, the nationalism of Churchill and Disraeli, and the skepticism of Peel and Lord Salisbury — into a real political force at last.
