Tweedledum and Tweedledee may be separate entities for tax purposes, but by and large, they are still both firmly rooted in the trunk of the Dire Necessity of More Big Government Management/Control of the Economy - whether indirect, through corporate collusions and cartels (fascism) or direct, through actual ownership of business, i.e. Government Motors (communism).

Ben Gleck can't understand that Social Security is a socialist program, however much that Jon Stewart Leibowitz might chide him about it on the Daily Show because at the least, both of them are really in favor of the fascist version of socialism, with respective emphases on either warfare or welfare. But it's all ice cream, regardless of the flavor.
