American Government is not evil. What is wicked is when it falls into the hands of a few who prefer to quash democratic will of those people the government was created for. What is “evil” is the domination of our public trust by private men who suffer from profound emotional and ethical disorders.
What is sad is how little we all realize that we still have the power, in our sheer numbers to defeat dollars; to reverse this whole mess.

Obama has been absolutely centrist during the past 4 years…
I would argue that his new mandate from the coalition that reelected him is far more progressive than last time. I would also argue that he kept his centrist promises in his first term… and has made much more progressive promises for this one. It is likely that he is aiming at those now. That said, he will seek to agree where he can like a good centrist will. And that, gentle reader, is part of what sucks about democracy… that the assholes can make you compromise with them.
