Our Legacy

I've been thinking a lot about the legacy the Baby Boomers will leave to the X generation or the millennials or the other subsequent and expectant generations lately.  We have been made to feel guilty of our expectations of big government, but we have also funded what we think is our share of such.  The problem is that we have all been made to expect that the government will cure every problem that will ever crop up. We will be OK no matter what.  Our system of crony capitalism and corporation citizenship has yielded our individualization meaningless.  In order to have our voices heard by our DC reps, we must join a group of big money supporters who may have completely different views than our own. We have a few contrary voices that will never have a chance of winning national office.  We know that they will have no chance of winning national office and that our current direction is non-sustainable, but we feel that we are part of a counter vote by backing these oddball candidates.  How is it that we can create a true counter establishment movement?  Is it really too late for it?  


  1. Bernie Sanders has warned that we are becoming an oligarchy, government of the many by the few. Our government is becoming the property of those who can afford to buy politicians. Government of the people, by the people and for the people is no longer guaranteed, it is more government of the few, by the few, for the few. This can only be stopped by real campaign finance reform, which the current politicians are not interested in. I wish I knew the answer.

    1. An interesting thought.

      How to convince the masses to vote for the chosen one.
