You know what really scares me about all this? That we might be getting the politicians we deserve on both sides of the aisle, whether Democrat or Republican, because we’ve encouraged a dumbed-down, low on ethics, self-absorbed and shallow populace, starting in public school and continuing right on through to the geriatric cruise crowd. When do we restore a national character that values long-forgotten ideas like integrity and sacrifice and compassion?
