One thought on ““A world in which people can bypass their parties’ institutional forces and make up their own minds on who to support”

  1. Tear it down.

    Ralph Nader, whom many lefties excoriate for electing George Bush (I don’t blame Nader — if Gore couldn’t beat a halfwit governor during a time of peace and enormous prosperity handily enough that Nader’s vote count didn’t matter, then he was a lame candidate), said both parties are beholden to special, mostly corporate, interests. A pox on both their houses.

    In truth, though, it will take a lot to shake voters out of established patterns. We are, as William Lederer said more than 40 years ago, a nation of sheep.
