We, as well as our elected leaders, can argue till the moon finally leaves our orbit. Unfortunately we don't have that kind of time. I had hoped that the Tea Party uprising would inspire critical thinking but as recent votes have shown it hasn't accomplished squat. We have an unfunded "tax holiday" that does nothing but rob the social security system for the sake of political expediency. The system is broken and all we've done is throw another spoke into the wheel. I mention this, not to divide, but to show the disfunctionality of our elected leaders. The bipartisan opposition to this bill proves some are aware of the danger, alas they are the minority. So everyone gets an extra 40 bucks in their paychecks today only to fond their retirement 40 years from now nonexistent. That's just an example. Imagine that shortsightedness 100 fold and you get an idea of how our current leaders are functioning. When does it end? When do we wake up? When does DC realize America doesn't give a fuck about left or right but rather the stability of their lives and the lives of their children? Our system has become so corrupted by money. And I'm not talking about just big corporate money but rather all of it. What can we do? What will it take?
