At some point, we as functioning members of an otherwise well-developed society must take responsibility for the political conduct of our country. It is imperative that we see the central problem: The power structure rewards party goals — not national priorities.
The Republican and Democratic parties have moved past any hope of service and are defined by an ever-spiraling list of extreme views that can be converted to invective soundbites for easy consumption by what they perceive to be dolts (you and I).
They are untarnished by conduct that brings us all shame. They are unblemished by the open contempt they hold for their original charter and those that they presumably serve. If there ever was a time America, it is now. Stand up, let those sycophantic narcissist, drunk on power know: This is our country.
