All I can say is that if you think the current political situation in the United States is lousy, then you just haven't lived long enough. Over the
years, I've seen it fluctuate between laughable, miserable, awful and downright crappy.
But I'm generally apolitical and not backing a particular party. If you're a hard-core Democrat or Republican, then you're only going to be
unhappy half the time, when the "other guy" wins. If bad things happen you can always blame the other party for not getting with the program. If
you aren't affiliated, then both parties will always look like jokes.
Fortunately for the U.S., the country isn't run by the politicians. It's run by the millions of faceless bureaucrats who keep their jobs no matter
who is in office, and who want to keep things nice and calm and productive as much as they can, so they can keep getting their good paychecks and
