I'm not pointing fingers at any one party or any one politician. The whole lot of them have lost the ability to look critically at another viewpoint and strive for a workable compromise.
I love my country - always have, always will - but I've become increasingly disillusioned by our political system. I'm beginning to see the wisdom of Thomas Jefferson, who said, "Every generation needs a new revolution".
Hopefully our government leaders will be able to grow up enough to make that unnecessary.
