The following is a quote from Carroll Quigleys Tragedy and Hope. It was taken from http://www.freedom-force.org/pdf/falseopposition.pdf ... Freedom force international has a great web site. What you will see below is how our politicians and bankers use this formula to create their own opposition.
The National parties and their presidential candidates, with the Eastern
Establishment assiduously fostering the process behind the scenes, moved
closer together and nearly met in the center with almost identical candidates and
platforms, although the process was concealed as much as possible, by the
revival of obsolescent or meaningless war cries and slogans (often going back
to the Civil War). … The argument that the two parties should represent
opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left,
is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers.
Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people
can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or
extreme shifts in policy. … Either party in office becomes in time corrupt, tired,
unenterprising, and vigorless. Then it should be possible to replace it, every
four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things
but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.1
