Simply listen to Tom Carper's and Michael Castle's radio ads and tell me that the truth of this statement is not undeniable. The Daily Show ran a statistic the other day, showing the US is just above Mexico in voter participation. We’re 139 to their 140, if I recall. What we have in common with Mexico, it seems to me, is one-party rule. At least Mexico had one-party rule, until recently; the US still does. We call the one party two different names, but the differences between them are discernable only to another politician.....And most American citizens are not politicians. - RMJ at Adventus
As much as I want the Democratic party to mean something, when I hear Carper on the radio crowing about how cozy he is with Bush and the rest of the Republican establishment it just shoots down any argument I can make.
