Every hundred years or so our democratic system seems to fails us. In the 1850’s we saw the emergence of a third party escape valve with the establishment of the Republican Party lead by Abraham Lincoln. Over the succeeding hundred years the establishment democrat/republican career politicians have done much harm in allowing our democracies escape valve ability to function properly!
Every hundred years or so capitalism seems to fail us. Along came Democrat FDR who employed government sponsored escape valves to save it from itself. Bloomberg would have done this as well but the Democrats have rejected capitalism for socialism. Unfortunately the Republicans are incapable of saving it other than for themselves. No future 3rd Party Lincoln’s will emerge to save us!
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
