Quote from IanMacQuaide:
I've often thought the same....however there remains a pertinent question for the future.
I view politics as a pendulum, it swings one way, then the other..if politics/economics swings the pendulum WAY too far one way, what happens when their grip slips?
I see it that way as well, but as has been repeated umpteen times, it's a "generational thing". Once the boomers are largely gone from public office, the upcoming generations of politico's will inherent a completely broken system with which a fight to the death to maintain the status quo will neither be an option, nor an electable platform.
Obama was a charlatan who campaigned on this type of rhetoric to win the "heart's and mind's" of the younger generations to "reform" what was clearly broken. Only problem is that he is a big part of the status quo and continues to fight for more and more debt and "stimulus" to try and maintain this artificial reality.
