2000 Light Years Away

Remember the argument, facilitated by Ralph Nader's Green Party campaign back in 2000, that the difference between George W. Bush and Al Gore wasn't meaningful enough to matter in the long run? Whatever your ideological orientation, I think the spate of recent decisions handed down by the John Roberts-led Supreme Court confirm, just as much as the war in Iraq, how misguided it was. The two-party system may be status quo, but much of what the Bush Administration has been doing constitutes total war against it. Unless, of course, your idea of "status quo" is the American social order before the Depression.
