60 Minute Fix Or You Are Out
We have come a long way from the days when kings ruled by divine right, and the church supported the king and the king supported the church. Now, those of us living in the United States, live in a democracy and while we don't have kings ruling by divine right, we nevertheless are being ruled. In a democracy there are many labels, but there is still the struggle between those that rule and those that vote. It is my opinion that both major political parties use people, but I find the way the Republican Party uses people to be on the level of genius. How the Republicans can get so many poor and middle class people to support policies that will help the very rich become richer, and at the same time destroy the middle class, to me is genius. As the party of business, as they are known, they demonstrate adroit skill in manipulating the many unsuspecting fools that give them their vote. Packaging over substance will win almost every time. When things get bad again, the Democrats will come back. Unfortunately for the Democrats, the American people expect solutions to all problems, regardless of how big or how long in the making, in 60 minutes. TV solves everything in 60 minutes every week, so why can't life in America be fixed in 60 minutes too.
