Let Centrists unite with the Left for a change [View all]

The entire country can't be united in the foreseeable future. The madness on the right needs to be quarantined in an isolation ward until that infection runs its course.

The status quo in America over the last several decades has resulted in the Super Rich vacuuming up all of our nation's new wealth. Income inequality has gone through the roof. Our infrastructure has crumbled. Our deficits have exploded. Retirement savings for typical Americans have dwindled. Our health care costs have risen.

And now racism is rearing it's ugly head once again, stage center, in what once was called "polite society." That tends to happen when people are fearful and those fears are flamed by those who profit from people pitted against each other. Most Americans know our nation is on the "wrong track" even if the stock market is still thriving. So called prosperity is paper thin for the overwhelming majority of us, and the specter of our next Recession has begun to haunt us all.

The Right in America is either crazed or cravenly self serving. The Center is complicit in this trickle up economy. Let the Left lead now and maybe, just maybe, American capitalism can once again be saved from itself, like it once was in 1932.
