Jeff: I buy the BS because I am a Republican. In fact, I believe I am more of a Libertarian than a Republican.
The reason our country is in trouble is that we are so far apart in our thinking. The common ground has disappeared. We are now polar opposites headed for a show down. It has been getting worse in the past fifteen years.
During the last campaign all I heard was the rhetoric of “don’t bring me your tired old ideas that have been proven not to work.” During the last two years we have proven again that the “Hope and change’ of “tax and spend” isn’t new and it doesn’t work either.
