For most of us, here, we are thanking the Almighty, that the PEOPLE of the USA seem to have come back to reality, while learning some very important and painful lessons.. The pity is that some of the lessons have reverberated from our historical past......like those who fell for the snake oil salesmen pitching miraculous curatives, that never worked. The difference is the amount of damage. The snake oil guys stole our money, and left town/were thrown out of town very quickly, without irreparable damage to the community. But OUR modern-day snake oil guy has done just short of irreparable damage to the fabric of our nation; and just when it looked like we would be at each others' throats perhaps, forever, our better nature--intelligence, wisdom and great good judgment, may have saved us.
I believe this election demonstrates that old saying about not being able to fool all of the people all of the time. Teleprompter driven oration by a golden-tongued, ill-equipped, unqualified charlatan, who cannot make things happen, except by perhaps extra-constitutional methods, is now being recognized as having brought us to the brink of disaster.
EVEN for many of the "takers" among us, who believe the government owes them an existence......they are beginning to realize, if they continue to participate in destroying the economy of this great nation, they will be destroying themselves also.
Just as people learn, grow, develop and excel, in stages in their own ways, we as a nation have reached one of those critical stages in the life of this great country. The Republicans MUST, now begin the reconstruction of the functioning of our government. They must make positive things happen---they must repair the almost irreparable damage done by the charlatan's regime, and they must show the people of the USA, that the Federal government can engage in SELF-MANAGEMENT by SELF-DISCIPLINE, instead of continuing self-serving, political operation on the tax-payers' time-clock. REAL accomplishment MUST be accelerated.
If the Republicans fail in 2015 and 2016, I suspect a Third Party will be born in the pain of that failure, but perhaps, too late. I pray that will not happen, because the "United" character of the United States could very well, in-deed, begin to disappear. That would be tragic.
