The Sad State of American Politics

There is a philosophy that countries eventually get what they deserve.

History is littered with fallen regimes; there are thousands of them.

Right now in America there are two intense problems.

First: stagnant wages for working Americans.

Because most folks depend on a paycheck for security and well-being, when that paycheck shrinks, there are serious side effects.

Under Barack Obama, the median wage has fallen despite trillions of dollars in stimulus spending by the feds.

Talking Points will restate: the only way that wages will rise is for business to expand.

And the only way expansion will happen is with tax cuts the way Ronald Reagan did it in the 1980s.

The Obama administration has done the opposite; taxes are up big time.

Last year the federal government took more money in from workers than ever before.

Obviously that is not helping the economy to expand.

The second intense problem is worldwide terrorism.

Iran is tied in with that because that country trains and funds terror operations all over the Middle East.

Now Iran may get a nuclear weapon.

In the shadow of those two enormous problems is the upcoming presidential election.

On the Republican side, 15 men and one woman are considering a run.

That means there will be a brawl in the primary season.

The first Republican debate is set for August 6th.

On the Democratic side, it's all Hillary all the time.

But so far turbulence has defined her campaign.

This week reports say that despite Mrs. Clinton saying she used just one email address as secretary of state, two email addresses were used in reality.

Also, the New York Times reports that one of Mrs. Clinton's closest friends, Sidney Blumenthal, apparently was trying to work some kind of private business deal in Libya and was in contact with Secretary Clinton about the situation. 

HILLARY CLINTON“He’s been a friend of mine for a long time.  He sent me unsolicited emails which I passed on in some instances.  I see that as part of the give and take.”

Now Talking Points is exhausted with all the Hillary Clinton stuff, and I bet you are, too.

The ongoing drama is getting tedious and takes away from the serious business of fixing America.

Finally, Americans elected Barack Obama twice and his presidency has been anything but smooth.

So all of us on both sides of the aisle should consider that old saying the next time we vote: “Countries get what they deserve.”

And that's the memo.
