  •  Romney is the logical product of 30+ years of (4+ / 0-)

    developments dating back to Reagan's time.  Those developments are far more disturbing and far more consequential than the political fortunes of Thurston Howell, III and his running mate Eddie Munster.  

    I'm not sure where to even begin at this point.  Certainly, a political system that resembles a special interest auction far more than anything envisoned by the Founders is essential.  Labor getting back up off the canvas is, too.  Accepting that the US doesn't have a Manifest Destiny to control events on the other side of the planet is a third essential concept.

    We're killing our planet, yet the issue isn't even on the radar in this campaign.  Instead, how much to cut so-called "entitlements" (rather than earned benefits) is the topic du jour.  Cutting corporate tax rates is also taken as a given.

    The gap between our political system and the reality experienced by this country's citizens widens w/ each election cycle.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
