NYT Thomas Freidman: America has a one-party democracy

Oh, really? Forty-six percent of Americans voted for John McCain in the 2008 Presidential election. The one party democracy is in your mind Mr. Freidman. Almost one third of Americans identify themselves as Republicans.

Watching both the health care and climate/energy debates in Congress, it is hard not to draw the following conclusion: There is only one thing worse than one-party autocracy, and that is one-party democracy, which is what we have in America today.

This is unbelievable – he’s endorsing outright forced state control of humanity. He is apparently completely ignorant of the individual liberty this country was founded on! Unbelievable!
