What Kind of Democracy Is This?

"This is the kind of democracy it is: the kind that can have both parties calling for an increase in the size of the U.S. military at a moment when the people are sick and tired of war and groaning under the weight of confiscatory taxation. The kind that has all ‘major’ candidates for the White House vowing that nothing is ‘off the table’ when it comes to Iran — and pledging to prosecute the war in Iraq more efficiently and successfully than Bush. What the past four years have taught us is that we are the kind of ‘democracy’ in which the major parties are merely the ‘right’ and ‘left’ wings of a single party — the War Party."

Justin is an excellent writer. I read him as often as I can.
