I don't see any real change coming until another party is allowed into the political process. I don't see that happening.
Lately, I have been giving a lot of thought about how "things might have been" if Ross Perot had continued his short-lived election campaign agains
George Bush Sr. Even if he had not won (which wouldn't have surprised me). The other parties would have had to face the fact that Americans were
not pleased at all with the state of things. And, the Dems and the Rep. parties would have had to change the ways that they do business or they would
have had to face the very real possiblity that they were going to LOSE. At one point or another the American people, when given an alternative
choice, they were going to vote the Democrats AND the Republicans out of office and out of power.
I'm not saying that Ross Perot would have been the answer. What I am saying is that the Democrats, the Republicans and the U.S. government need a
very real and profound wake up call as far as being receptive to the needs and desires of the American people.
The US already had a "wake-up" call on 9-11. But it would seem that aside from x-raying shoes at the airport, they don't know what to do.
All I know is that that old definition of insanity keeps coming to mind...."when you do same old things over and over again while expecting different
results then it means you are insane". By this definition, the Dems and Rep. parties are insane and, to tell you the truth.....they have driven the
American people to that same level because we keep voting the same people, the same old ideas which garner the same results into power.
