MONEY ! Until you get the power money out of our politics you will always have this problem especially when times are good and people have jobs. The only time the people stand a chance of getting a real President is in bad times like we are in now and even then the chances are slim. When people have jobs and food on the table they couldn't care less about everything else that's wrong and that's why we are where we are today. For the last 30 years people have been watching their portfolio's grow at an amazing rate (alarming to the smart ones). As long as people are making money like that they will turn a blind eye to everything else going on around them. Money will make the smartest people in the world stupid. While their portfolio's are growing and the green shoots keep coming they turn a blind eye to the fact that their country is being shipped overseas in the process to make that happen.Easy money "something for nothing" is whats wrecked it all! The bubble pops then they wake up to the fact that we have no manufacturing or Industry to bounce back with and the only way out is to enslave multiple generations behind them by printing endless amounts of money trying to keep a dead horse alive and they are just fine and dandy with that as long as it keeps them comfortable. Its all by design and easy money in the form of green shoots has finally wrecked this country. Money, Money , Money, cant live with it, cant live without it. No such thing as easy money! If its easy to obtain, something is very wrong. Most people know this but if they are the ones benefiting they don't care until it jumps up and bites them in the ass like it is now and even then they still want the easy out.Bush and Perry did not make Texas, Texas made them! BTW, If you think Texas is bad, look at what the rest of the states elect as "leaders"! What state are you from?
"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
