US Government

This isn't a political blog and I do hate getting into politics on various groups, but I have to share this insightful quote. It's not based on political affiliations, but rather the government's getting lost on the wrong path the last several presidential cycles. It's not based on current presidential status, but more to the WHOLE government with Congress being as integral a part as any current or past president.

This gave me a moment to ponder the whole fiasco of the last 10-15 years and thought you might find it worthy of thought too.

"The US no longer does decisions. It can neither stop the drug traffic nor legalize it. It can neither win wars nor abandon them, neither make money nor stop spending it, neither stop immigration nor assimilate the immigrants. Washington can beat its thumb with a hammer, yes, and notice that it hurts, but it can't stop beating its thumb. That would take a decision, and Washington doesn't do decisions." - Fred Reed

Interesting, right? Imagine if we didn't have political parties, but rather individuals who are there to serve without being hand-tied to a party!
