    We are screwed by a system designed not to work. The founding fathers didn't foresee this kind of crisis.

    But this is really hard to argue with sometimes.

    In my more pessimistic moments, I often find myself worried about the exact same thing: that Obama's small donor based emergence and victory was an anomaly in an otherwise endless slide towards autocratic corporate rule, thanks to a mix of consolidation and crises the founding fathers never anticipated, and whatever amount of good he might do with all his efforts, it will barely make a dent in a pattern we will only return to in future election cycles - even if we elect the Democrat.    

    77% of voters support a public option, Congress.
