    at the federal level, and the inability of American citizens to mount any type of challenge to it, I'd say we voted for the most palatable choice. America is still in decline for most of us. a BIG part of that is continually voting for the best of what a fixed system offers.

    If we constantly buy the least expensive thing we can't afford, are we really ever going to get out of debt? It seems to me this is what we do with politics. We handed ourselves a more acceptable excuse to feel like we tried to fix what is broken. We voted for a five foot wide patch instead of the three foot patch to fix a ten foot hole in our boat.

    Still feels like sinking....
