There are no partisan slogans here, no partisan heroes here, no partisan distinction in the villains, and certainly no advocacy of the "lesser-evil" as a decent or even intelligent course.
BOTH the Republicans and the Democrats have led us down the path of eleven years of wars -- and counting. BOTH Democrat and Republican presidents and congressional majorities have/are destroying the middle class, our schools, our highways and bridges, while maintaining a medical system rated as the world's 37th "best" -- while pontificating that only "our party" offers salvation.
Who are these political careerists, their partisan-hobbyist supporters, and these "lesser-evil" deluded? Time to examine the record of our government under both partisan persuasions across the past thirty years. Time to look into our own mirrors. Time to examine our own innards. Time to demand intelligence of our minds, decency in our choices, courage of our convictions: before the system WE support -- consciously, dumbly or naively -- destroys us all.
