On Keynesianism: The Ship Of State

On a stately cruise across the ocean \
our great Ship of State sail with Two Captains.
One looks on high and Always Steers Starboard \
One a bit lower and always cries "Port!"

     Keynesianism says the government should be counter-cyclical.  When the the environment of the government (the economy) is contracting, government should expand. The Democrats always want the government to expand.  Keynesianism also says that when the economy expands, the government shouldn't.  The Republicans always fight to contract the government.

     There are no politicians who respect this divide.  If elected I will be both Democrat and Republican, depending on the times.
