    Let's see, all those trade deals cost us millions of jobs, deregulation caused an economic collapse, letting a small cabal of millionaires and  billionaires have all the money, it destroyed the middle class, the very people who create jobs by buying stuff.  Our country is a mess with poor out of date roads and crumbling bridges, no mass transportation to speak of, universities that are getting too expensive for the average person, and a U.S. Senate that is outdated and represents rural America.  Now there's nothing wrong with rural America, but there are many more people in our cities, and they're not  fairly represented in the Senate.    I guess that's why our cities are falling apart while the corn growers are getting richer by the minute.   Moving right brought us into two stupid wars, but they surely kept the Pentagon happy.  And guess what?  There are "serious financial management problems at the Department of Defense."  This has been confirmed by the Government Accountability Office.  We have also been told that the Pentagon cannot be audited.  For every fiscal year since 1996, the U.S. Comptroller General has refused to endorse the figures in the federal budget.  Why?  Because nobody can figure out their financial statements.  Gee, I wonder why Bill Clinton didn't fix this.  After all, he was a southerner and not a liberal at all.  The one thing Clinton did not forget  to do was destroy the Democratic Party. In fact he turned it into a version of the DLC which he created to drag Democrats away from anything resembling the FDR version.  He even changed the music so there would be no more Happy Days Are Here Again.  Yes, I guess the Happy Days are on their way out.
