It has become trivial.

There are no statesmen in Washington. Wisdom has been banished. In its place is a reality show, immature, posturing moral brutes in expensive clothing.

We are Rome, 350 AD.

No, we now call statesmen, “politicians.” As bad as calling a Car Dealership, used car salesmen. Equally bad. I trust no politician, republican, dimocrat, whatever. None of them.

We are Rome, 350 AD.

Bumping a very well-written observation.

Indeed...

And Rome was overrun by invaders...

As are we.

Their currency was debased as is ours.

Even tho they were Christian in 350, much of their morality was still depraved in a lot of areas...

There is doom in our future...our near future, I fear....

“We are Rome, 350 AD.”

We are worse off. One of the Roman Caesars showed his contempt of government by installing a horse in the Senate. Today, half of our Senate is filled with asses.
