It’s no secret that we at Capitol Hill Blue hold politicians, political parties and partisans in low esteem.
Actually, that’s an understatement. We think politicians, political parties are scum of the earth and those who buy into their fantasies are delusional at best.
America doesn’t need another politician at the helm.
We don’t need a celebrity.
We don’t need a pre-packaged, consultant-molded, TV-friendly candidate.
We need a leader.
Is there one out there?
Not in the current, pathetic crop available for election to the House, Senate or White House.
Sadly, the choices for those to represent us and/or to lead this nation will be made by brain-dead voters who long-ago abandoned independent thought and make their decisions now based on blind party affiliation and minds filled with propaganda from the raving lunatics who masquerade as purveyors of information.
Conservatives genuflect at the feet of loons like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity while liberals accept slanted garbage from Rachel Maddow on Keith Olbermann of the left. Olbermann, thankfully, is off the air for the moment but he will be back, just like a bad check or diarrhea.
Political parties don’t recruit leaders. They select celebrities or “game changers” who lack the skills necessary for the job. That’s how we ended up with Barack Obama in the White House and pretenders like Sarah Palin.
We can’t say this often enough: America cannot be saved by those who think of themselves as Democrats or Republicans, conservatives or liberals or any other political stereotype.
America and only be saved by Americans.
Are you up to the job?
God help us if you’re not.
