Placing the blame

Finally, somebody who places the blame squarely where it belongs. Read LZ Granderson’s latest column “Stupid voters enable broken government.”

Here’s just a bit of what he has to say…

We have to move away from easy-to-repeat campaign slogans and promises of easy solutions, because we’re a country with more than 300 million people, a complicated racial and religious history and the world’s largest GDP. There are no easy solutions.

So if you’re the kind of person who likes to say “I don’t follow politics,” let me remind you that no one lives in a vacuum and that sentiment epitomizes what is wrong with our government. I don’t blame Sarah Palin for thinking she can still toss her hat in the ring. I blame us voters for creating an environment in which a Palin or a Gingrich or even a reality TV star like Donald Trump can feel as if they can run and even be taken seriously.

(Emphasis mine.)

Please pass it around and share it with anybody you know who is even thinking about voting in next year’s elections. (That is, of course, if the Republicans will let them.)
