Logan Feree has made a cool graphical representation of the Senate on the Left vs. Right plus Libertarian vs. Populist scorecard. Looks cool. I’m very interested in the forces that have pushed the Democrats towards Left-Centrism while pushing the Republicans towards Far-Right-Authoritarianism.

Also, Radical Geek as a cool “International Ignore the Constitution Day”

Unfortunately she only argues the consequentialist results from a liberal perspective, but it’s an eye-opening argument all around.

I’m always amused at the people who evince the clearest case of survivor’s bias I’ve ever seen, that the Constitution must be great because it’s served us so well for over two hundred years. You know, despite arguably being a force for evil the first 80 years and being unable to prevent a massive civil war.

Has it ever occurred to you that Democrats will invariably paint other Democrats as angels and Republicans as demons? Looking over their criteria, I'd say that votes were cherry-picked to produce a specific result. Of course, the same thing can be said for the Republican-produced "scorecards", too. Such people are partisan first, liberty-loving last.
