George Will: Seeds of our dysfunction - The Washington Post

Elections supposedly prevent convulsions, serving as safety valves that vent social pressures and enable course corrections. November’s election will either be a prelude to a convulsion or the beginning of a turn away from one.

America’s public-policy dysfunction exists not because democracy isn’t working but because it is. Both parties are sensitive market mechanisms, measuring more than shaping voters’ preferences. The electoral system is a seismograph recording every tremor of public appetite. Today, the differences that divide the public are exceeded by the contradictions within the public’s mind.

America’s bold premise is the possibility of dignified self-government — people making reasonable choices about restrained appetites. But three decades ago, Harvard political scientist Samuel Huntington postulated that America suffers regularly recurring political convulsions because the gap between the premise and reality becomes too wide to ignore.

**********************

This is a great article.

It does not talk about Obama or Romney as a campaign ad...

Instead it talks about America and how we've gotten so much debt because we can't admit to ourselves that we can't pay for everything. And we keep voting in the assclowns who are running up the numbers.

The single most Power attack against Obama is the 4500 Dollar drop in average income for middle class Americans.

If that is what Obama considers help, I would hate to see what he thinks not helping is.

And then he's gonna raise your effective rates.

A right cross followed by a left hook.

Good article, but the majority of the people on this forum could care less about the constitution or the intent and warnings of the founders. Unless the excesses of governemnt envade their little corner of the world.
