Well look at the bright side, since the leadership of both parties is not serious about correctly dealing with: 1) unfair trade, 2) corrupt banking/major financial institutions, and 3) a rigged tax code, the crucial vampires that suck the very life-blood of what Eisenhower considered the most paramount leg to national security, that is jobs that pay a living wage w/ benefits, we were screwed before the voting booths even opened.
Greed and egomania are not the fault of only one political party or geographic area, or special interest group, it is endemic in Washington across the board, and by far the greatest nemesis our nation state faces. It comes in many forms across many socio-economic levels but the root is the same.
Every citizen should have to endure a Valley Forge Winter and memorize George Washington’s farewell address verbatim.
“… corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, … until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
- Abraham Lincoln (Republican), Nov. 21, 1864
