What's the Matter with Ohio?

Krugman: "Since their 1994 takeover of Congress, and even more so since the 2000 election, Republican leaders have sought to make their political dominance permanent. They redistricted Texas to lock in their control of the House. Through the "K Street Project" they have put lobbying firms under partisan control, starving the Democrats of campaign funds. And they are, of course, trying to pack the courts with partisan loyalists." [NYT]

No one party should hold complete control over government. You see here how one-party rule has cost the State of Ohio dearly. And don't be fooled, this happens in every state. Power breeds corruption, and the notion of immunity for those on the leading side. Now, this is starting to happen (or has been happening) nationally.
