OK, enough already -- enough, enough, enough!
Aren't we all getting sick to death with "blaming" A, B, or C for the disgusting human condition?
Yes, the elites are pigs, and yes the 2006 Democratic Congress are pigs, and yes the Repiglicans are pigs, but behind all this deafening oinking is the pathetic human species.
Nothing makes this clearer than the unforgivable fact that MOST of the human race doesn't give a rat's ass about ANYTHING.
These are the "enablers", the TV watchers, the illiterate cynics -- the slobs of humanity. Because WERE IT NOT FOR ENABLERS, basically all that's wrong and evil about our dying country and planet could be changed in one election. In fact, it could all be changed INDEPENDENTLY of politics.
So the bottom line is that what can you expect from a species made up mostly of psychopaths (e.g., religious fundamentalists) and decaying brains (either by birth or lack of use). God (or god) knows the greed heads are greeding and the vampire elites are gorged with the blood/oil of the planet and the stolen labor of millions, but why is this happening?
Is it happening because "nice people" are overwhelmed by greed vampires, fascist thugs, and religious fanatics?
Yes and no. Superficially yes, but fundamentally no.
It's happening because the human species is ALLOWING it to happen. We are less being victimized, than we are reaping the fruits of choosing to be a marginally brain dead, criminally slothful, and radically dysfunctional species. On a scale of one to ten in the cosmic scheme of things, we are probably a two. That's why extraterrestrial visits are rare (if ever) events on this planet. The word is probably out that the most "advanced" life from on this planet spends all its time self pityingly complaining about things they could change in a week.
But change means WORK. And change means INTELLIGENCE. And change means RISK. Enough said?
So, the tragedy of planet Earth is that we have a "default civilization". Default in the sense that like bacteria and a wound, the "wicked people" simply take advantage of a world (wound?) handed to them on a silver platter by enabling Homo sapien hosts.
Politics is as meaningless as corporate "mission statements" -- talk about being put into a coma.
WE are the problem and only WE can be the solution. The buck stops with the human species, but the extraterrestrial Las Vegas say the odds ain't good.

ps: Here’s a sample of the puke that actually works on Homo sapiens.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Joseph Goebbels, German Minister of Propaganda for Hitler’s 3rd Reich
