I'm thinking -
Patriot Act (largest stripping of rights ever which nobody seems to care about at all anymore)
How long until it's old news....
I say we will hear about it non stop until election day and then by Jan 1 it will be virtually out of the everyday discussion regardless of which party wins the presidency.
Life will not go on. Just like everything else over the past 100 years, once our ADD kicks in and we forget about this issue (not claiming to predict when on this one), someone will dig up controversy and conflict yet again and the entire viscous cycle will start all over. We have two very polar sides vying for their chance at full power to enact their agendas, and are in constant conflict with each other, and neither will succumb to defeat.
