A Blast From the Past
Nine years ago, Phillip Seymour Hoffman filmed a documentary about the 2000 presidential election. Called "The Party's Over", watching it with the benefit of hindsight, seeing what's happened over the last eight years, gives it an extra fillip. With the help of luminaries such as Michael Moore, Willie Nelson, Noam Chomsky, Susan Sarandon, Bill Maher, Scott Weiland, Eddie Vetter and others, we see that many of the hot button issues that were being discussed nine years ago have still remained unresolved and are still not being resolved even with the Obama administration.
The feeling one gets is that it doesn't matter which party comes to power. The only difference is, as Ralph Nader said, is the velocity with which their knees drop to the floor when lobbyists comes knocking on their office doors.
