Reader feedback: No difference

Re: Americans in Bratislava active in US elections, By Amanda Surbey and Hank Jones, Sep 6-12, Vol 10, No 34

Believing that there is a big difference between the two major US parties is absurd. Aside from a few marginal issues where they each need to pander to their base supporters, both parties govern in the middle.

This is why they need to create the illusion that the Earth will stop rotating if the other guy wins.
