Cronyism and Corruption

Those are the two words that characterize one-party domination. Karl Rove's GOP operates more like the Mafia than a legitimate organization. If you go against THE FAMILY then you get whacked (like McCain or Jeffords) but if you're loyal, well then...

... you might become Assistant Secretary of State...

...or enjoy retirement in an Italian mansion at taxpayer expense in spite of a history of criminal business practices.

Somebody should write a thesis comparing the operations and tactics of the GOP and the Mafia. Where are the grad students?

You should look up and read Murray Rothbard's "Anatomy of the State".

It's not just the GOP. The entire State is a criminal racket.

That is 100% correct.

And thanks for the tip.
