Thirty years on, the Reagan Revolution has done its job, or nearly so. There's no sustaining integrity left to how our society is organized, no principle that can't be gamed for private benefit.
Guns or butter is of course the real issue. It's unfortunate, all these decades after Eisenhower's warning about the pernicious, corrupting influence of the Military Industrial Complex, that we cannot count on those in Washington to heed the dangers.

Who will pick up the mantle of this unabashed progressive voice in the House? Who will stand in Dennis Kucinich's place and demand that our government do the right thing by the People and the other nations of the world?
They don't wear funny hats any more, but there still sure are a lot of Puritans in this country these days. It wouldn't surprise me if you told me some red state is going to force every woman who gets birth control to wear a scarlet letter.
