Timothy V. Gatto's blog
I wrote an article last night, one of the best (IMHO) I’ve ever written. At 3AM my computer automatically went searching for updates, found a few, and proceeded to shut down automatically. Of course, when the computer shut down, it took my three page article and flushed it down the cyber sewer. Needles to say, I was outraged and came very close to putting my foot into the thing, but the rational part of me stepped in and saved the day. I’m going to try to write this article over again, but my expectations are very low.
The current political paradigm in the United States is untenable. This rift between left and right, liberal and conservative, Democrat and Republican is not a natural state of affairs, it is engineered. This state of affairs is fostered by those in power to divide the American people and to keep us off-balance, enmeshed in issues that have no simple solution, and that are presented as critical problems that must be decided.
The truth is that most of these issues are straw-man arguments. Let me mention some of these “critical issues”.
I know that there are Republicans out there that are as baffled and confused as the rest of us. The difference between Democrats, Independents and Progressives is that it’s not members of our party that has brought us to where we are today; The Republican Party holds that dubious distinction. I can put myself in the shoes of a Republican very easily. If I were a Republican, I would feel that I had been stabbed in the back by the very same man that promised to bring morality and decency back into American politics. Instead, this very same man has not only lied to everyone in the country, but he has even gone so far to lie to the very same people that put him in office, The Republican Party faithful.
