The fact you think I'm a Democrat is hilarious, though I must say it's typical of people who can only play team politics.

"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
So now we have a country in decline, almost exclusively due to the rules those radicals gave him, and what I believe to be their intent is working, i.e. destroy the economy and the entrepreneur to make big government increasingly necessary and increasingly move the power to a central government until that government is all powerful and no longer has to follow any rules but its own. But in the process, while the people are still allowed to express their discontent, they do express their discontent. And what the rulebook writers didn't count on was that fearless leader has a fragile ego. Deep down he knows he doesn't have a clue how to run a country and that he is utterly incompetent in every aspect of it. But he wants to look good. He thrives on the adoring crowds, the applause, the flattering headlines. And he simply lacks the maturity to not complain and not point the blame at others when he is criticized and accused.
Of course it works when those who slavishly grovel at his feet accept that others are to blame and continue to believe his failures have nothing to do with him, his policies, his leadership style or lack thereof.
"I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it." --Benjamin Franklin 1776
