Americans yearn for a political economy that structures government to serve its real world needs; needs like internal and external security and the ability to take their labor, skills, and knowledge into the market and create income so that they can feed their families.
My daddy, the original Alton Drew, used to say you can’t eat books. He was right, which is why the over intellectualizing from the left and their focus on silly issues like saving the snowy owl gets on the last nerves of millions of Americans. Not that the right does any better with its cheap skate position on austerity. A society can’t grow unless it invests.
Time for a third way….and a no-party system.
