“Too darn bad, people were not angry enough to want bold
changes of how our corrupt government works. (Go Newt)”
Human beings can be very short-sighted.
Although we are already in the toilet socially and morally, in order for real Americans to be spurred into action, PALPABLE economic conditions will have to get much worse.
What will it take to get people to wake up? This is very frustrating. If we could unite, we could have a person to bring real changes. Has to be a real desire for a battle to have a change.
Your calculus is in accord with mine. Crash, burn, clear the rubbish, build anew.
