Bitch and whine, bitch and whine...that is all Republicans are good
I agree 100%. The unfortunate corollary is that this is
also 100% true for the Democrats, in the aggregate.
As I have posted before, the major (and most minor, e.g. U.K
Liberal Democrats) political parties are bankrupt, sadly,
not in the financial sense, as this would solve many
problems, but in the intellectual, ideological, ethical,
social, community/commonwealth, etc. sense.
The world has changed drastically and suddenly in the areas
of socio-economics and geo-politics (among many others), but
the parties involved are still wandering around, lost in a
fog of their own making/denial, assuming the conditions that
existed when they first came to power still exist, and their
traditional elixirs, potions, spells, incantations, chants,
slogans, etc. retain their mystical/mythical powers.
IMNSHO it is time for our "leadership," political,
financial, industrial, and yes military, to either "put up"
or "shut up," and let someone else with another
program/model "have a go." Clearly the existing tacit
reactionary elitist socio-economic model is no longer viable
(just ask the Irish, Spanish and Greeks), and I would
greatly prefer to see something other than the French or
Russian models of socio-economic/political change...
