Government by Simpleton

The United States government is now in the hands of corrupt simpletons.  Mr. Obama, a community organizer who believes that the health care plan that he devised might actually work, is the political incarnation of Jack Madoff.  His partisan colleague in the Senate, Harry Reid, believes that the only problem with the United States government is that Democrats and Republicans are not nice to each other.  It is frightening to me that the simpletons have incurred debts of nearly $14 trillion.  I had always thought that the mentally incompetent are not permitted to incur debts.

The US government cannot manage health care. It cannot manage a post office. It cannot manage a court system.  It seems to me that excessive concern with the opinions of America's political leaders is absurd, akin to excessive concern with the beliefs of mental patients.  As I was growing up in the 1950s and 1960s America's government had serious problems such as McCarthyism, but it was still the best government in the world. Today, America's government has failed and ought to be dissolved.
