Contrary Law of Democracy (to coin a phrase!)

I have noticed that if the powers that be want to perpetuate an unpopular war, they put a Democrat in to silence the anti-war left. If they want more spending and debt, they put a Republican in to silence the fiscally conservative right. This practice is called giving left-cover or right-cover respectively, but I have begun to notice that it’s the rule not the exception. It will take a Republican to increase infrastructure spending and debt while Democrats will make a comeback to oversee the next leg of the endless war. In short, you are likely to get the opposite of what you were voting for in a democracy that ultimately thrives on silencing constituents not representing them.
