The big problem is that all politicians, whether right or left, have been given access to the moneyed classes, and they like it. The right takes their agenda to greater extremes, but the left sells out when it comes to solving the real problem of insane inequalities. Neither party answers to the people anymore. There is greater hope (for what that word is worth) that a new FDR will emerge from the ranks of Democrats, so it means something, but at the same time the right is always more ready and able to offer solutions that can be forced on the populace when their manufactured crisis' take root. There is a real possibility that with all the money involved in politics down there, that the Republicans will become the de facto, paid for in full by the one percent, governing party for as long as it takes people to recognize that democracy is as good as done. I hope they go with hope one more time, but the fact that a knob like Romney can make it even close does not hold out a lot of hope in the long run.
