You know, part of me would like to see Bush win. If he can do for the country what he did for Texas, like rejecting 3 to 1 federal matching funds to provide healthcare for uninsured children, leaving Texas far behind the rest of the nation, while, at the same time, pushing for, and winning, a tax cut for oilwell owners, one must conclude that the wealth gap between the rich and poor will become even greater under his watch.

Some might say that's hard-hearted, but if Gore wins, the same thing will happen, as he's a faux environmentalist and a "free trade" advocate, only at a slower rate. As Barry Soller said, old Coke or new?

I think that things in the US will have to become much worse before any popular movement is born.
