We've learned nothing. Both parties have led our government to the edge of ruin, heavily indebted, growing dependency, a regulatory state so thick and gargantuan -- written by cronies via their monied lobbyists -- as to be completely indecipherable for the citizenry at large, endless war, endless interventions in every aspect of life at home and abroad, and yet we reelect incumbents at a 90% rate.
Without a dramatic change in course, the future for young Americans will be less prosperous and less free than their grandparents. A good place to start the clean-up is to shut down the endless war demagogues. Then we can move on to crush the nanny-state, root out crony-capitalism, and overhaul the "entitlement" state. A fella can dream can't he?
