Reblogged: FAILURE OF GOVERNANCE
Over the past decades, our government has embarked upon a path, resulting in further declines in the Human Condition. And you can forget blaming the Democrats or Republicans because both have been in office observing this deterioration of the U.S. and neither party has demonstrated one scintilla of leadership in changing this countries current course.
You may be under the impression that a country’s fortunes rise ad infinitum. But this is not the case; as history is replete with examples of the rise and fall of civilizations both in ancient times and in recent history. Our country, by almost any measure is in declinebut less you doubt this statement, allow me a few examples from my previous blogs.
After more than 5 decades, the US still does not have an energy plan for energy independence. Our foreign policy is dictated by our energy requirements. The nation’s wealth is evaporating at a rate of $1 billon per day.
The government has carried on a 30 year crusade to deregulate the banking industry which has culminated in 2.7 million foreclosures. One forecast has estimated that foreclosures will reach 5 million when all is said and done.
Just stop for a minute and think about what kind of country we are leaving to our children, grandchildren and loved ones. What does the future hold for them? What will the Human Condition be when they reach adulthood?
A laxative directly injected into this nation’s veins, vis-à-vis replacing elected officials is the prescription. And the only way to accomplish a directional change is by voting the incumbents out of office.
Why? Because history has taught us that starting a new party does not offer the immediate success (if at all) that is required. And human beings by their nature tend to do the same thing over and over again, this holds true for our elected officials. Just think, from their perspective, they must be thinking they are doing a bang-up job and why wouldn’t they, after all over 90% of incumbents running for office get reelected.
