It's really easy to throw rocks at the guy who's actually in the arena. We need FAR less of that and a lot more well thought out SOLUTIONS to what is being trashed!

The first step to developing solutions is to understand the real problem...

Once enough people understand what the real problem is, the solution will become obvious...

Why don't you just tell us and take all the drama out of it?

Ah!

Therein lies the rub.

People must become smarter in order to stop making stupid decisions.

My take on that dilemma is the subject of the article below, somewhat dated but relevant to your post.

The problem with the GOP is that they are as treasonous as the Democrats.

They are 'controlled opposition', not 'the stupid party'.

It is to both the Democrats and the GOP's advantage to let GOP supporters continue to think that the GOP is 'stupid' lest people begin to hack at the root rather than the branches...

Actually, I think it is to the Dems and the GOP's advantage to have people believe they present alternatives to each other. There are no real core differences. They both value money, power, re election and advantage and any deceit that furthers their primary objective of maintaining a preferred status and lifestyle for themselves is acceptable to them. They have become the corrupt ruling class and will slop up any wealth they can from any source they can and don't particularly care what principals they have to pledge to at any particular time or in any particular election to sustain their status. The notion that we can alter any of this via elections has long ago been dispelled.
