This country will never fix its problems until we fix this
Politicians, with only a few exceptions, are basically psychopaths. Most of us wouldn't even agree on who those exceptions are. Fetterman and Oz are both representative of how unserious we are, and serve as good examples of what politicians shouldn't be, yet one of them will get elected, or selected more likely. We deserve what we get. With a dementia stricken lifelong government grifter holding the highest office in the world, a bunch of over the hill senators verging on or already in some stage of dementia, and an egregiously bloated bureaucracy that has the reins of power, I don't see any coming back from the brink. Whatever rises after the fall may be the best we can hope for.
"I want" is the whole problem of removing adult supervision. Because every day in my personal life, I have to make choices such as: do I want this bad enough to give up that, or even, gee I'd like that, but I can't afford to do that right now. Yet I hear entitled people all the time saying; "well I don't know how THEY will do it, but I'm voting for him/her because THEY promise to give me that for free from the federal government." Unless the infantile DEMOCRAT party is dissolved, there is no bright future for the USA; it will die via suicide.
Who knew that Trump would be a modern type of reformer in Chesterton's quote. He issued an executive order which required that for every one new regulation, two must be revoked.
