    I would not disagree or challenge any of what you said.

    There is a danger here that I and many I observe can easily become victims. There have been many attempts to pass outrageous and downright morally offensive legislation around the country, but a mistake can be made by concluding that every single person who voted for that politicians wholeheartedly agrees with every idea or action coming from that politician. It is not true. Have you ever known a politician to not make the claim they have a clear mandate? They all do and then invoke their voters as the authors of these obscene laws.

    This is the primary fault of the two party system we have. It's binary. All or none. You're with us or against us. The politicos love it... they are either ruling with god's blessing or fighting the devil. Easy to sell.

    And while the populace is arguing and fighting demonizing their neighbors no one notices the march of progress: the people who can buy government win, over and over again.
