The truth is no one could get elected telling the truth about the new economy that we have begun.

In today's age of gotcha politics, 24 cable news crap, lobby financed politicians and the wall street inspired tendency to look at the short term. Getting us truly on the right track will take 10 years. So if a miracle happened and the next president (either one) decided to be honest with the country and begin transforming our economy/jobs to the new reality, in 4 years the other party would win by pointing out what a failure it has been. And after 4 years it would look like a failure.

I have a friend who worked in DC for a senator and later as a lobbyist for the high tech industry. When she hears people spout off crap similar to this article, she laughs. She knows the realities of winning elections. Look at Romney backpedaling from the Ryan budget. They speak of making the "hard choices" but they don't dare mention what they are. If they did they'd lose.

Maybe we still haven't hit bottom and that is what we will have to do to correct our system. As Churchill said:

"You can always count on Americans to do the right thing—after they’ve tried everything else. "

Can you imagine a politician admitting,
"The creation of the computer age is OVER, those jobs became obsolete" !
Worse yet, American people that believe gubmint creates jobs that improve GDP.
Why hasn't gubmint been creating jobs all along ?

Gubmint's job is to stroke you till you are burnt out.

Call it Crazy says

candidates on both sides decided to join forces and put all 4 heads together to fix it, they can't save us from going down the rat hole....

If George Soros, Warren Buffet, & Jaraldo Revera can't fix it, WHAT on earth allows humans to believe gubmint even WANTS to fix it ?
Gubmint has repeatedly applied a compress to an infected laceration, CLOSED their eyes in denial and HOPE one of us will invent a money making CURE. IF NOT, we are worse than if gubmint let us bleed the infection out. Iceland has been recovering for years. We may suffer gangrene before egotistical polticians acknowledge the truths. But do not fear, The elite will survive.
