"here is a chance, however slight; that the recent Republican victories in the Senate might actually result in some independence from "ownership" now that something could actually be accomplished"
The Republicans are the ones who blocked this bill. How is a party that wants the NSA spying going to change anything? The republican party is controlled by ultra-conservatives and the tea party. The tea party was formed by the Koch brothers and big tobacco to further their interests. So you have the democrats who represent every fringe element in society and the republicans who represent the wealthy. Where do I fit in?
