As the bald eagle needs both of its wings to fly, the American political Left and Right desperately need each other for the system to function. This is a simple notion, yet a crucial one to remember. Together, both parties move the system forward. Another animal apology I like to use is the horse and rider. The ride’s whip and stirrups represents the Left, constantly striking the horse and challenging it to go further, faster. The cowboy’s reins connected to the bit represent the Right, reining the horse back onto course.
