I just spent two hours watching TV news (forgive me, I had to see what's being reported). There wasn't a whisper--not on CNN, not on the networks, not on PBS, about the policies of either side dealing with the economy, foreign affairs, civil liberties, or anything of substance. The entire media has bought into this presidential campaign as being one of lingo, personality, the latest hot-buttom item.
What else is new? How can we possibly survive as a nation when this is how we govern, how we choose our course?
The answer is we can't. The answer is, the US is now a full-fledged failed nation.
I won't be alive when it fails, I'm glad to say.
