I am a sincere admirer of Ron Paul's efforts to educate the electorate regarding the realities of the economic situation we are in. I accept and
applaud his evident dedication to the constitutional form of republic we have here in the American enterprise.
But I hold no hopes for those who are political to overcome their 'loyalties'. I feel no discomfort in openly recognizing that the political
parties are more important to themselves than the country, per se. I wish they would 'break' the chain and invite other individuals who are not
members of the Democratic party to assist in whatever corrective actions need be carried out, but I doubt it will happen. And I suspect that even if
it did happen, it would be scaled-backed to be as insignificant as possible, in political terms.
But I would welcome any happy surprise that the new administration may have in store for the party. Personally, I feel the party system is
responsible for a large portion of the problems we have been facing. Our politicians are supposed to represent us, not the party.
