Oh Say Could We See?

Unless the Center and Left gain some traction and quickly turn it into momentum, we may all wonder, as Eric Alterman laments below, where the hey our country went. Some see and hope that traction coming with the moderate coalition of Senators that temporarily staved off the filibuster fight this week.

I think it is just as likely their wad's been spent, and we all know their party leadership is working hard to rope them into their respective herds.

Call me shrill, ideological, or whatever you like, but I think we’re losing our Constitution, our civil liberties, and in many significant respects, our country. When future historians look back on this period, they will wonder, most of all, I think, how we let it go without a fight.

So go fight the good fight, somehow, somewhere. Better with a bang than a whimper.
