Third Party Calling

Reflecting on the performances of Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich at the recent Conservative Political Action conference, Stan Graham at ichabod's reason considers the implications of the current state of our national politics and hits the nail on the head: "Both parties have come to view the constitution as an obstacle to federal power, rather than a necessary restraint. The power of the government to infringe upon or deny its citizens the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness has become the primary preoccupation of those in power . . . neither party represents the electorate. They represent those in power: themselves."
