No, wait ... Palin is the fascist and Biden the socialist. No ... it's the other way around ... or, is it?
It really doesn't matter which way is straight since, regardless of who wins, the nation will continue moving down the path of state control.
Just like the McCain/Obama debate, where the only difference between the two came down to what Kissinger did or did not say, the Palin/Biden debate was between two statists, each claiming that their vision of government is bigger than their opponent's.
We have become a nation that beggars its neighbor. "Don't Tread on Me!" is a forgotten relic. We are now a nation that seeks the warmth of government -- in all matters.
In the end, Nietzsche was right: "God is dead." For, as a nation, we worship the madmen (and madwomen) of power.
What a sad state of affairs.
