Aldrich and David W Pages:   The recent discussion about raising the U.S. debt ceiling has demonstrated just how polarized American politics has become. While but a few years ago we could legitimately claim that both Democrats and Republicans were "pretty much the same" the same cannot be said today. I ask two key things - Why has Congress become so.   Congress is historically polarized. I think it must also be acknowledged that “conservatism” by definition is a reactionary ideology, existing in opposition to radicalism or liberalism.
