Would someone please take the mirrors away from the democrats. They hold it up to themselves and proceed to tell us what they see, liar, bigot, homophobe, etcetra and then they look up and add republicans to their statements. The brain dead media dutifully regurgitates the drivel and posts their editorial comments so that the few useful idiots tuned in can get their talking points and all is well in the funny farm. Big government thinks it is communicating to the masses and has consensus with each returning echo from the chambers called Washington DC, academia, main stream media, and the open mouths of the world's leadership.
The self-anointed political elite complain about the unwashed and stinky visitors being allowed into the so called people's house as they pilot their tax payer purchased private jets over fly-over country.
The problem with looking into a mirror is that you can only see yourself and that what is behind you. This country's elected so called leaders have been looking into mirrors far to long and all they think they see is a populous that has had its hand out and its attention on the wrong things. I seriously doubt that this country can be saved from its economically spoiled and arrested development situation. It is hard to imagine what could be next. Even is there is an economic meltdown there is no place left to start over. We are stuck in the morass and there is no escaping it. We will adapt to the new circumstances but man's nature will not change and the circumstances will only become more dire. The only glimmer of hope is technology. However, Is it possible that our inabilities can be overcome by technology and not have it perverted by man's nature as well.
