death throes?

somehow, i just don't think so.

the neo-conservative movement has been based, not on ideology exactly, but on the manipulation of data and facts to fit a pro-corporate, pro-war agenda that has been backed by those willing to pay for the think tanks, the policy wonks, and the PR firms.

when will rich people no longer be interested in manipulating government policy so that wars can be started that make them a ton of money? probably not in my lifetime, if ever. rich people have been using their influence to screw the little guy since money was invented.

the other, more important question, is when will american democracy be so degraded that the legislature ignores the people's wishes? that, unfortunately, has already happened.
