Charles Krauthammer, another national treasure has this to say about the 'ugly' and dysfuntional political climate Americans face today....

Krauthammer argues that the recent ugly negotiations in Washington is what we should expect and is working as intended....
The process has been messy, loud, disputatious, and often rancorous. So what? In the end, the system works. Exhibit A is Wisconsin. Exhibit B is Washington itself.
Fights over the out-of-control budget in Washington and the sea change in Wisconsin where fiscal conservatives moved to confront their states’ unsustainable pension and health-care obligations portend to further drastic actions in the future. Additionally, the central government has been arrogantly injecting itself in nearly every aspect of American life for the past 70-80 years thinking that it can do a better job then the American people themselves by themselves and this too has to change since government adventurism in commerce and regulation has been a complete and total failure.

The believers in big controlling central government are fighting not just conservatives but reality as governments around the world are facing their Marxist demons. Governments have not just failed on delivering what they promise but are and will lower people's living standards in through these interventions.

Sensible Americans see what we have done and are fighting to take their lives back from the leviathan. Eventually, the people will win, but it will either be done peacefully, within the system or violently outside.

Krauthammer saliently argues that the system is working....
Of all the endlessly repeated conventional wisdom in today’s Washington, the most lazy, stupid, and ubiquitous is that our politics is broken. On the contrary. Our political system is working well (I make no such claims for our economy), indeed, precisely as designed — profound changes in popular will translated into law that alters the nation’s political direction.
And he notes.....
Notice how the loudest complaints about “broken politics” come from those who lost the debate. It’s understandable for sore losers to rage against the machine. But there’s no need for the rest of us to parrot their petulance.
The hope offered here is a reason to be optimistic about the future and hopefully, the doubling down on socialism offered by the likes of the Obamessiah will finally bury the beast, the leviathan of bad government.

From here.

Glenzo, I'm back but have to do a little research on your prolific keyboard diahrea before I decide if my time is worth your salvation. I'm losing hope. In the meantime smoke on this for a while.
