Rational Nation USA
Liberty -vs- Tyranny
Why are there no great thinkers anymore in American politics? Is is merely that we no longer notice them? A sign of the times? A result of the me first generation where the desire for and realization of instance gratification overcame long term rational self interest? Or is it just another phase in the current backwards evolution of the American electorate?
Perhaps the questions are rhetorical. However, it is certainly in the rational self interest of the people of the nation to find the answers and take the appropriate actions to correct our national trend towards the lowest common denominator.
"In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the
great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control
the governed; and in the next place, oblige it to control itself." -- James
Madison, Federalist No. 51
Where is the voice of reason in either political party? Perhaps most importantly when will it surface?
