The Chillin' Manifesto

The Coalition of the Chillin' has its manifesto out; I just forgot to make a public note of it. Here is the entire thing. I don't claim to have influenced the drafter of the manifesto, but the primary considerations that influenced me were represented in the final document. For posterity and intellectual vanity's sake, they're reproduced below: - the Republicans may want the filibuster preserved somewhere down the line; - the media and the Democrats would have clubbed us to death if we went nuclear, and we don't want a repeat of the '98 midterms; I was thinking more of the 1995 government shutdown, but whatever works. At any rate, we shall see how this develops. As "Albert Einstein" says in the introductory movie to Westwood's Command and Conquer: Red Alert, "Time will tell. Sooner or later, time will tell."
