It’s Nearly Impossible To Govern

It’s nearly impossible to govern our nation effectively when an intransigent GOP blocks all efforts to correct problems, refuses to bring anything but polarizing social issues to the table, insists on campaigning nonstop, lets funding expire for critical agencies, holds the national credit rating hostage for crazy political ransom, refuses to collect taxes on those with the means to pay, increases financial pressure on those already stretched to the breaking point, denies science in favor of religious dogma, floods the airwaves with bigoted propaganda, challenges settled law in courts, insists on fabricating an atmosphere of uncertainty and fear, exploits national resources and pushes to privatize control of energy, water & air, resists regulation of criminal financial operations, pledges allegiance to subversive activists, protects rights of anarchists, plants rational for assassins to act on, insists on loading the dice against workers rights and demonizes civil servants. But, who’s keeping track?
