I have got to tell you, both people on the right AND people on the left are really starting to give me a fright. The actions on the right point toward the desire for a re-do on the U.S. Constitution so they can do a re-write based on 50 sovereign Christian nation states and the actions on the left point toward the desire for a re-do on the U.S. Constitution so they can do a re-write based on a Direct Democracy.
The only real question is – do you want to be a part of the problem or do you want to be a part of the solution because the fact is we can see with our own eyes today’s Europe is not having much success with yesterday’s failed direct democracy nation state thing.
Not much raises this fear for me as of late as the superficial discussion going on around the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal (TPP) – and I say superficial because I have yet to see any of the anti-TPP crowd, often times a tad more to the left on the political spectrum than I am, bring any evidence to the table. To the contrary, I just see them running around with their hair on fire espousing 20th Century trade talking points -- talking points that have apparently, in the 21st Century, replaced the need for researching facts and forming an opinion based on said facts.
