At the edge of madness, in the ecstasy where all is forever and all is never, they are gods. ~Eduardo Galeano
The US Government is on the edge of madness has been for decades, precariously perched on the razor edge of a Damascus blade and the blood of the American people is dripping on the cold steel of partisanship. We have become obsessed with right vs wrong, with winners and losers, to the point we have completely forgotten our kindergarten skills and lost the ability to play nice in the sandbox and find mutually acceptable solutions to vexing problems.
Hell, we can’t even agree on minor issues for fear the optics will make us look weak hindering chances for reelection. This fixation on retaining office is the best argument I have heard for term limits of 1 term. If there is no possibility of retaining office, they may finally stop acting like deities sucking the soul of We The People and realize they were elected to serve not be serviced.
