The conclusion of the Mueller investigation has created an interesting litmus test that reveals the underlying political biases of the American public.
As with a normal litmus test, let’s say the results will either turn red or blue, but in this case those colors do not signify acid or base, nor do they even signify Republican or Democrat as convention would have it, nor even truth and falsehood as distinguished by the color of the pills in "The Matrix."
What the litmus test of the Mueller report reveals is whether or not we as individuals, as political parties and as Americans have faith in our government.
According to a recent poll, 84 percent of Americans want the entire report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller released to the public. They aren't satisfied just knowing that the investigation into President Trump's alleged collusion with Russia is over after two years. They aren't satisfied with the attorney general, a distinguished public servant, explaining the results of the investigation as he is mandated to do by law. No, they want to see the report for themselves ... they want to go over it with the proverbial fine-tooth comb and hunt down every inconsistency, every missing comma, every hidden clue that what they already know to be true is indeed true — that they can't trust the government, that the wool is being pulled over our eyes, that the system serves some ulterior purpose and works on behalf of someone or some group that is not us.
That is a horrid condition for the body politic to find itself in. It suggests a complete lack of confidence in our leaders, in our institutions, even in our Constitution. But it is even worse news for the Democrats who are leading the charge to see the "full" report because for them it also reveals a deep underlying hypocrisy. Democrats, after all, are the party of big government. The basis of their entire theory of human liberty and advancement is that we can count on the government for anything, that it is the answer to all our problems.
