The plague of bipartisanship

The Chicago Tribune reports that George W.’s regime – er, administration – has shown many similarities to H.W.’s, despite the fact that he came into office having “decided he would do things differently from his father.”  This information shouldn’t be too surprising, however, given the trend of complete and utter sameness we’ve seen in Washington for quite a while.  For instance, the bill restricting the sale of children’s clothing, which I mentioned several days ago, received almost universal support in both the House and Senate, with Ron Paul among the few not voting aye, of course.  This sort of bipartisanship is all too common, and it is usually an excess of cooperation between Democrats and Republicans to expand the scope of the state which plagues our government, not partisan divides.  This is just one of the reasons why real change requires R3volution.
