No, it's objective. Socialists take power: they raise taxes and spend even more than they raise and blame everything on the previous government. Public finally figures out they've been had and votes in a non-socialist type of government which has to spend all of its time fixing what the socialists did, making them unpopular. Stupid public votes back in the socialists who do exactly the same thing again. Seen it too many times to consider it a subjective observation. (And I'm not saying the other end of the spectrum is any better but that wasn't under discussion).

No, see above.
