There was a time when Americans seemed to care about right or wrong, good or evil. It appears that this is no longer the case. That "slippery slope" the politicians and pundits love to talk about is history. The truth is that we slipped on that slope a long time ago. We've already taken that tumble down the mountain; we're just too stubborn or stupid to realize it. Sadly, it doesn't appear that we will regain our footing anytime soon.

It's not just the economy that's out of control. It's about almost every facet of this American "security state". We can still make it right, but it will mean taking responsibility, and being accountable. This needs to be a grassroots transformation. It has to come from the bottom up, because the people that are supposed to be our leaders show no desire for "change".   It may be that the best kind of change in America would be regime change. If our government can demand this in Libya and Syria, "we the people" should be allowed to demand it here.
