Good point. There is *no* meaningful difference between the Demos and
Republicans. I realized that when I heard a looney tones on the radio spouting
madness on the need for spending even more money on the Pentagon and on Star(t)
Wars. It turned out to be Bush, but then I realized that his policy was identical
to Gore-Clinton -- the only difference was in tone and inflection.
Now that Nader has denounced the teflon genocide of sanctions,
"infancticide disguised as foreign policy," I am joining the Green Party and will
work actively for him.
