We all have, I suppose, heard of this new lexicon, the Tipping Point, in reference to global warming. Meaning, when the environment reaches the Tipping Point any further actions on man's part will be inconsequential. In reference to our country are we near or at the tipping point where no matter what government does now, it's too late to save the country from disintergration? I am very worried that our kids and grandkids will be left a smoking hole in the ground (figuretively speaking, in some areas maybe literally). Our infrastruction is rapidly crumbling, medicare and social security are insolvent, the Armed Forces are costing more with less capability, the trade deficent and the national debt are a major drag on the economy, the absurdness of political selection process, the unbridled immigration of a people who owe no alligence to this country, the abysmal health of our citizens and whew, I could go on all day. Tell me my fears are overblown, that everything will be alright if we just elect a Hillary, Obama, McCain, Mitt, Ron, Huckaby, Fred, or a Rudy. I feel like a helpless prawn being swept away by foreboding forces over which we the people have no control.
