<< During this time, it seemed that the dream of establishing a One-Party-Rule in the USA was happening. That it was already a permanent reality. Democrats were weak and disorganized. Most of those who remained in Congress after 2002 seemed to be on AUTO-CAPITULATION to Bush and the Republicans. >>
All through the 1980s and 1990s, with an explosion leading up to and after the 2000 election, the Republican Party used CORRUPTION as an engine to power their drive for one-party rule. Daily Kos (www.DailyKos.com) contributor Dengre has set out to compile an on-going list of Republican corruption and criminality, and this web post is peppered with words like "criminality" and "crime wave" and "corruption," but sad to say, with the CONVICTIONS of Abramoff, Ney, Skilling, Lay, Cunningham, and others, it looks like the Republican Party of 2007 truly does resemble the slave-owners of the ante-bellum South, who thought that they were entitled to engage in the massive chattel slave trade, and to whip or beat slaves to death, in the pursuit of wealth and their own "private property rights."
WILL the Democrats contine the sad (if not sordid) record of the past - the "AUTO-CAPITULATION" to the rampant corruption and gross criminality of the Bush-Cheney-Rove administration?
