Linker of the House

one more political post and then we're back to celluloid full time

America's progressive citizens are feeling quite cheerful today. And whether or not the other citizens ever admit or even realize it, they'll also reap the benefits of what looks like a small baby step towards a return to sanity for the USofA. All around the blogosphere it's like sunshine and warm fuzzies. Check these out:

Center of Gravitas sums it up with cheeky nicknames. ModFab relives the best moments of his live chat. That chat so much fun I'm thinking of doing one right here at the film experience. What do y'all think? But for what event? Hmmmm. Electronic Cerebrectomy feels hopeful, even in the face of the institutionalized bigotry of 27 states. And speaking of bigotry Catherine's got some words for her home state of Virginia, a bigot's paradise. But before we get too sad there's still more good news. Towleroad covers the record number of GLBT candidates elected. My New Plaid Pants regular feature "today's mood" is a perfect teary eyed inspirational choice. Trading Faces does a happy dance on the "best day ever" and Ameriblog theorizes about the meaning of the power change.

I'm not a fan of the Republicans, but meh too on the Democrats. I can't believe these are the only (viable) options in American politics. I vote independent as often as I can, so Tuesday was a wash regardless.


P.S. Rampant, unchecked pork barrel for big business (Rep) *or* a Big Brother brand of restrictive socialism (Dem) is not what my American dreams are made of.

The rest of hte world is astonished that there are people who consider Democrats "big Brother Brand of Restrictive socialism." Has socialism come to mean something completely different in the USA than in the rest of the world?

American Heritage Dictionary

so·cial·ism (ssh-lzm)

1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.

2. The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.

lib·er·tar·i·an·ism (lbr-târ-n-zm)

1. Advocates maximizing individual rights and minimizing the role of the state.

2. A ideological belief in free will, such as manifested in freedom of thought and speech.

Which one sounds better to you? (By the way, neither the Republican party nor the Democratic party in the U.S.A. today show that they subscribe to the latter.)
