Noam Chomsky: 'the United States Has Essentially a One Party System

Chomsky has been right all along, and so has Nader. They've both been marginalized by conformist consumerism, and doltish media.

Good insight, tj. It explains why the Libertarians, etc. are so eager to get in the party. Power corrupts, and how sweeeeet it is.

Chomsky is not the first to point out that there isn't a dimes-worth of difference between the two parties. He is wrong, however, that the one party is the "business party". It is the altruist-collectivist big-government party.

We are, or were until recently, a one system system with 2 major sects vying for control. Obviously both sects want mostly the same things, and so the differences are in degrees. Who pays money for Chomsky's crap?
