Politics as Usual
Passionate, broad-minded, and fair -
so we claim to be
yet the taught red line
drawn between us
quivers with irascible fear
where no reasonable voice is heard
as most are shouting
and others have fingers jammed in their ears.

If the dynamics don't change - if the vitriol and intolerance for ideas (I mean LOOK at the colleges today... they are afraid of diverse rhetoric and thought! - it's "think like me or you offend me".) but I digress... doesn't stop, we are doomed to only get worse. Our politicians on both sides are in it for the money and power - I mean please, point out one politician who is truly bi-partisian and is concerned for the good of our country and not securing a job in Washington D. C.
Let's start with: Term Limits, one six-year Presidency (no second term, NO campaigning), and I'd love to see a viable third party one of these days.
This is linked with "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Imagined by Brendan MacOdrum, Hasta La Vista, Wormtail: Satiric Verses" My feeble attempt at satire.
