Something is seriously -- and very possibly terminally -- wrong with a system that limits presidential voters to a choice between two such widely (and properly) despised individuals.
some of our purported public wise men and women -- all those vacuous
talking heads, pontificating columnists, and dim bulb political analysts
-- could take take a bit of time out from serving up their usual
mindless establishment gruel to actually think about and examine how we
got to this point.
A good starting point might be a
look at when, how, and why the nation, often with the best of
intentions, subverted the measures that the founding fathers put into
place to guard against the development of the excesses and conceits that
have caused every democracy throughout history to destroy itself. In
contrast to our current purported leaders, the founders were thoughtful
people who had a sense and understanding of history.
