Indeed, how will we explain to our progeny that we didn't demand our elected representatives focus on the greatest good for the greatest number of Americans? That we didn't demand a robust economy with a diversity of opportunity for all, free from intrusive and unnecessary bureaucrats? That we didn't demand all laws be enforced, or if they were to be ignored, then repealed, not saved for some possibly tyrannical use later on?
How do we explain that we know more about television shows and celebrities than we do the goings-on in Washington that directly affect all of us?
That we didn't demand the truth?
And common sense?
