Enough of Bushes and Clintons for 20 years?

By       (Page 1 of 2 pages)     (# of views)   No comments

There are several examples of Democracies around the world. Which one is a “Pure Democracy”? Well that’s a tough question. We may get into a subjective argument about the merits, definition and substance of one.  

But The United States of America did have a near perfect blueprint for a Democracy. It is astounding how the founding fathers, federalist and all, had the incredible forth sight to discern what kind of troubles we’ll be getting into, and how to avoid it. And so the history of this country is an amazing tool to judge/gauge how the founding fathers faired in their warnings and establishment of the Constitution. 

We can go back and study all the good and bad things this country has endured as a result of politics: wars, occupations, recessions, depressions, market crashes, industrial expansion, economic development, etc… but we’re not going to visit the annals of Universal 19th, and 20th century history. Though most Americans would be well served with a few crash courses here and there. 

Moving up a bit towards the end of the 20th and beginning of 21st century… my main point I am trying to arrive at, is the fact that Americans have had the worst disorder in the history of this Republic. "Attention Deficit Democracy" (title of the book by James Bovard).  

As we have endured in the past six years the most controversial, unruly and out of control president and US government in the history of this nation, we are getting ready for yet another shock of ADD. The “Election” of 2008.


I beg people to study history and contemplate what alternatives we may have, if any.

Americans have been governed (euphemism) by only TWO Families for the last 20 years! Bush and Clinton. Now if that doesn't send chills down your spine, then you definitely need a wake me up pill big time!

Take a look … for those who may still be too young to remember this astonishing passage of time.

2008 – 2012 Hillary Clinton?

2004 – 2008 George W. Bush

2000 – 2004 George W. Bush

1996 – 2000 Bill Clinton

1992 –1996 Bill Clinton

1988 – 1992 George H.W. Bush 

Now my point is above and beyond the question of efficiency, productivity, Democratic values, economy, peace, transparency, party affiliation, accurate and clean elections; or the actual legitimacy of each one of those who occupied the White House. The point is real simple; TWO Families have controlled the hell out of us for twenty years! Only Two Families!

Not a politician, for God's sake not a journalist, just your regular joe who's baffled with the mess this country is in. Only 4 democrat presidents since JKF and they still blame them for all this mess!

I am an engineer, major (more...)
