  •  I addressed the Nixon parallels today (4+ / 0-)

    Or, more correctly, an event that was actually worse than Nixon.  My heartfelt thanks to all of those who participated in that discussion.

    We're at a place now that I never deemed possible when our family attended an Obama rally, my son and I pounded pavements, and we had an Obama sign in our front yard in 2008.  It's almost like that election never took place.

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

    •  America: sandwiched between Dems & GOP (2+ / 0-)

      The People are the meat in the sandwich formed by the two slices of bread- the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.

      Every election we're trapped in the sandwich and we're forced to pick which piece of bread we think is the lesser of two evils- we can pick the piece of bread we're standing on or the piece of bread above us. That's it if we don't want to throw away our vote.

      If standards were rising across the board- or at least staying in a sort of sustained equilibrium with tolerable imperfections, this sandwich could work in a crude way. Eventually, even the lower slice of bread would theoretically rise. Everyone would win.

      But this is not the case.

      It's a rigged system out of whack and on the decline.

      Both pieces of bread are declining over time. We are trapped in the middle. We are in a race to the bottom trapped within this sandwich of corruption, greed, self-delusion, hypocrisy and impotence.
