Great in-depth article in TAP the pretty much lays out exactly how we got here, and how fucked we really are, from the progressive perspective: http://prospect.org/article/who-will-save-middle-class
Includes some nods to the "no difference betwen the parties" people, but, well, I'll just quote:
First, we should stop lying to ourselves. The re-election of Barack Obama is a defensive imperative. But there will be no transformational second term. Any bargains between the Republican Party, owned by corporate America, and the Democratic Party, which merely rents itself out, will not reverse the existing grand bargain that preserves prosperity for Wall Street, power at the Pentagon, and austerity for the rest of us.
