People are sequestered in their homes listening to expert talking heads that contradict each other every day. Isn’t government and political leadership wonderful? That’s why they’re leading and the rest of us are following. This is a special class of people you know, with degrees from Harvard and Yale and tongues that can debate for 24 hours non-stop with nary a breath taken. These people are a marvel to behold aren’t they?

Just one question: How did they get us into this mess? People are sick and dying and the economy is on the brink of collapse. Shouldn’t our accomplished leadership have seen this coming? What were they doing? What were they thinking? Did they believe that a few four syllable words would deter a deadly pathogen stalking our communities like the Tenth Plague of Egypt? What kind of hubris must these people have to have allowed this to happen?

Yes, one side was preoccupied with impeaching what they saw as a menace to the great state they had crafted to right all wrongs and seek vengeance through the courts to punish disfavored groups. But the other side was no better. They were pocketing the same lobbyist bribery from the culprits that released the plague for personal corporate considerations. While the pall approached no warning was given because the two sides were locked in combat like mating male wildebeests that didn’t see the lion. Now we are paying a much steeper price than we should because precious time was lost at the beginning.

This is an ugly situation and when we get to the other side of it, if we get there, we need to reconsider how we elect leaders and who is considered for leadership. Obviously there are too many highly educated people in leadership. The problem is that they identify with highly educated people on distant continents and abandon any concern they have for average people. That’s what globalization is all about. It’s an elitist betrayal and now we are being poisoned.

A new broom makes a clean sweep and it’s time to purge our government of the treacherous thieves that occupy it. We need to use the election process to remove every single Congressman and Senator in US government-none of them protected us. We’d be better off with a government made up of truck drivers and plumbers. If that doesn’t work then violent overthrow is the only alternative.

Actually, we are paying the price that we deserve.

YOU GOT IT, RAY. Decades later, whole government bureaucracies later, billions invested later, and we are seeing that our government having promised every contingency planned for is actually prepared for nothing. JUST AS THEY WERE TWO DECADES AGO WITH 9/11. They are running around like chickens with their heads cut off, no plan, no supplies, no readiness.

Can you imagine if someone attacks us with an actual biological agent, EMP or the like? It will be a total clusterfuck. All government has in place and knows for sure is to:
  1. Protect themselves / cover their own asses.
  2. Control you.

Many people are going through a test of faith in our institutions. It's time to expect better, not elect new leaders to further sabotage them in a fit of anger. That's already what people did when they elected our vandal in chief.

Amazing the OP thinks as Trump thinks, Trump is never responsible of any negative events, he only responsible for good things.
Neither one of you believe in factual history, both of you live in a magical kingdom of fantasy consumed in alternative facts.

No choice for what, Pismire? No choice but to deserve this? You speak in non-sequiturs.

Put you on ignore? You haven't said anything important enough worth bothering.

Expecting better is a luxury, based on the past performance in the last 40 years of our leaders.
Our institutions are fine.

All history is factual. It's the way it's the way it's remembered that turns into fantasy.

None of them will take any of the real blame. They failed us. And this has been going on for many years.
