The root cause of any problems that exist in the US are from the people, or I should say sheep impersonating people. The media, political parties, and groups with agendas all tend to lead the people around by their own insecurity.
Yes, we need to clean house, senate, and presidency, but in order to do that the people need to stop being led around, and make some use of whatever intelligence they still have left.
The people have been disunited by these organizations, just as the lion separates and chases down the weak in the pack. With the people the pack is also weak, so the pickings are generous and easy.
This is not like the puppet regime, it is the puppet people, and many groups are able to pull their strings.
The system can't be changed, until the people are strong and smart enough to want it changed. But, this year, as in most of the years previous the people are dancing around by their strings.
Instead of forcing the parties and the candidates to focus on the country and its issues, we are 15 months into a soap opera about the good, bad and the ugly, while silence falls around the critical issues looming over the country and the people.
You heard about the guys that played the violin while the city burned, that is how I would describe this year's election campaign.
