    This is an article penned by Johnathan Chait, which appeared in New York magazine a couple of days ago. In it, he does a brilliant job of explaining the political mechanics and the tools available to both candidates for implementing their grand vision of America quickly after the election. It's a fascinating read for political junkies and policy wonks.

    The premise is simply that this election REALLY IS about the direction this country will take in the future and that BOTH candidates will have the power to completely destroy the other party's macro-policies, their decades-long meme, within a very few months.

    It's 6 pages long, so it's not for you sound-bite experts. It's just for those who really WANT to understand what's going on and why.

    Yep, but that's the reality we live in now and nobody seems to be interested in bridging the gap. For that matter, positions are so ideologically hardened that bridging the gap may no longer be possible.

    By the way, creating this very confrontation is what the GOP has worked to achieve since the Reagan Revolution. To them, it's a winner-take-all ideological battle between good and evil which must be settled once and for all.

    Our kids deserve a better America than Obama sees for us.

    Hating success and admiring dependency is the antithesis of who we are

    This "battle between good and evil" has reached a new level with the Obama admin. And it has been ratcheted up not by the GOP but by the racist Left.

    Some of us already understand what's going on and why. Both Parties are controlled by International Banking and Corporate Interests. That's why Obama continued Bush's policies.

    Apparently, your understanding isn't quite as deep as you think.

    And we're supposed to believe that you believe in bridging the gap when all you post is anti-GOP comments and partisan posts supporting Obama? :confused::cool::eusa_whistle:

    I read the WHOLE article and it's partisan from the get-go but particularly from page 3 on.
