    It deserves to be part of the progressive creed of this site. Along with georgia10's simple observation that our policies are actually bipartisan, while GOP policies are partisanship at its purest, this screed explains why catering to the false notion of "centrism" is really catering to the right.

    The empires you mention did not fall overnight; in fact, it was quite some time after they had fallen that people agreed they actually had. I don't intend the word "empire" here in a pejorative sense, merely as an accurate reflection of the hegemony of American cultural, economic and military force in the world today. Bush brought it to the brink of collapse, but it will be the failure of those who come next, beginning with Obama, to pull it from the precipice that ensures it's fall.

    If we don't fight NOW, when will there ever be a time to do so?

    Focus on what matters.
