The Random Ruminations and Observations of a Curmudgeon

The Power Hungry

The Hamden vs. Rumsfeld decision has generated much philosophical passion, much of it at Unclaimed Territory.  Read it all.  Paul Waldeman also chimes in.  A few major points are:

  1. The control of discourse by the Right.  

  2. The polemical repudiation of opposition to the Right.

  3. Gratuitous accusations of treason.

We do not only need to convince voter A that he will be better off with a one payer health care.  We need to convince voters that the tactics of this administration are a threat to them.
