Sometimes the Europeans are correct about Americans. Take the recent election for example. In spite of the fact that Congress had a 15% approval rating, an overwhelming majority of House members were able to win reelection. We tend to suffer from “battered spouse syndrome” when we vote. While we are able to recognize that Congress is seriously flawed, we deny that our representative is responsible for the ills in Washington.
The time to change the tide is now. We have to quit electing Democrats and Republicans if we want to restore what made our country great. I would like to see the third parties get together and join forces in fundrasing.
The sooner the facade that the two corporate parties represent mainstream America is exposed, the sooner we can save our country.
