...eyes but don't see; ears but don't hear
I'm amazed how the statistical relevance of this last election seems to escape the majority of the populous! It lends credence to that old maxim: The inmates are running the asylum! Those least involved, or for that matter least concerned with the preservation of this Democratic Republic of ours, the least invested in the tenets of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, have overwhelmingly cast their vote for all things contrary! The Baby Boomer generation's lack of a sense of country, the disposition and intentions of the resent wave of immigrants, the influence of disgruntled social minorities, has fostered a divisiveness never seen before on these shores. And of course, having the most divisive,the least uniting President ever in our Oval Office, has exacerbated the divisiveness beyond anyone's wildest imagination (certainly mine!). Indeed our forefathers must be rolling over in their graves! I'm sorry I have no great revelation of what to do about this catastrophic turn of events, nothing but stand here with the rest of we deer, caught in the headlights of an unfamiliar America! I must admit the awful premonition of a second civil war has crossed my mind! If so, resolved intelligently as opposed to stupidly we can only hope. We desperately need another Lincoln to emerge from this political quagmire and once again rally us in preserving the sanctity of these United States of America, even though the odds against it are daunting (as Mitt Romney came to find out!).
